SPC Jan 22, 2022 1630 UTC Day 1 Convective Outlook

SPC 1630Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1026 AM CST Sat Jan 22 2022 Valid 221630Z - 231200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Isolated lightning flashes may occur late today into tonight across parts of Arizona. ...Synopsis... A surface cold front will continue to move southeastward across/off the southeast FL coast and Keys during the day, with the primary threat for thunderstorms focused along the wind shift across the FL Straits and just off the southeast FL coast. Farther west, a closed midlevel low will continue to drift southeastward over southwest AZ/Sonora through Sunday morning. Relatively cool midlevel temperatures and sufficiently steep midlevel lapse rates, along with a gradual increase in low-midlevel moisture, could result in just enough buoyancy for isolated lightning flashes by late today into tonight within the arc of what is now shallow/midlevel convection from the Rim into south central AZ. ..Thompson.. 01/22/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
