SPC Feb 14, 2022 1630 UTC Day 1 Convective Outlook

SPC 1630Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1012 AM CST Mon Feb 14 2022 Valid 141630Z - 151200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Isolated thunderstorms are possible from western Oregon towards northeast California and northwest Nevada through tonight. ...OR/northeast CA/northwest NV... A vigorous shortwave trough near the WA coast will dig south into northern CA by 12Z. Substantial steepening of low to mid-level lapse rates will occur as the mid-level cold pool (-30 to -35 C at 500 mb) approaches. This should support meager surface-based buoyancy amid 40s surface dew points, mainly along and west of the Cascades across western OR. A few lower-topped showers might sufficiently deepen for sporadic lightning flashes later this afternoon into this evening in the zone of ascent immediately preceding the shortwave trough. Low-end thunder potential may linger tonight as the marginally supportive environment spreads towards the OR/CA/NV border. ..Grams/Squitieri.. 02/14/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
