Day 4-8 Outlook Day 4-8 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0247 AM CST Fri Jan 07 2022 Valid 101200Z - 151200Z ...DISCUSSION... On Monday/D4, a large and deep upper trough will exist over the northeastern part of the CONUS, with cool/dry air pushing south behind a cold front. This front will stretch from the central Gulf of Mexico into the western Atlantic, with the only instability over the FL Peninsula. While a few showers or weak thunderstorms will be possible over FL during the day, severe weather is unlikely due to weak instability and rapidly veering low-level winds. For Tuesday/D5 through Thursday/D7, the entire CONUS is expected to be void of thunderstorms due to a large surface high over the central and eastern states. Minor thunderstorms chances may develop over parts of TX toward Friday/D8 as an upper low moves from the southwestern states eastward, but severe weather is clearly unlikely due to very weak instability.
