SPC Feb 2, 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 Wed Feb 02 2022 Valid 021630Z - 031200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Severe thunderstorms are not expected across the contiguous United States today and tonight. Only minor changes have been made to the ongoing forecast. Scattered thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and tonight along a cold front sagging into east TX and the lower MS Valley. Other isolated thunderstorms are possible beneath a cold upper trough over parts of AZ/NM. ...Southwest LA Late tonight... One small area remains a minor concern for strong storms late tonight over parts of southwest LA. Southerly low-level winds are expected to maintain dewpoints in the mid 60s as the surface cold front approaches after midnight. One or two of the 12z CAM solutions show a discrete storm or two in this area before 03/12z. However the consensus of guidance suggests that overnight storms in this area will be post-frontal, and that the risk of stronger and more organized thunderstorms will develop after 12z and farther east. Therefore will maintain less than 5%/2% severe/tornado probabilities, but will continue to re-assess the potential with later updates. ..Hart/Wendt.. 02/02/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
