SPC Jan 10, 2022 1630 UTC Day 1 Convective Outlook

SPC 1630Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1015 AM CST Mon Jan 10 2022 Valid 101630Z - 111200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... A few thunderstorms are expected across central and south Florida, mainly this afternoon/evening. ...FL... Visible satellite imagery shows mostly clear skies across central and south FL today, where strong heating and dewpoints in the mid-upper 60s will promote moderate afternoon MLCAPE. Mid-level temperatures are cool (-14C at 500mb), further aiding in the degree of instability. Scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop over the east-central and southeastern peninsula, perhaps aided by sea-breeze interactions. Vertical shear is weak, limiting much severe threat. Nevertheless, the strongest updrafts may produce small hail and/or gusty winds. Considered a small MRGL east of the lake between MLB and MIA, but the very small area and weak vertical shear limit confidence in the severe risk. ..Hart.. 01/10/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
