SPC Feb 5, 2022 1630 UTC Day 1 Convective Outlook

SPC 1630Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1028 AM CST Sat Feb 05 2022 Valid 051630Z - 061200Z ...NO THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Thunderstorms are not expected across the contiguous U.S. through tonight. ...Discussion... A quiescent pattern for thunderstorm potential is expected across the CONUS. Scattered low-topped showers should develop near a cold front drifting south across south FL. Very poor mid-level lapse rates (less than 5 C/km) owing to a relatively warm/stable layer near 600 mb per 12Z MFL/KEY soundings suggest most of the convection will remain low-topped, with negligible probabilities for deeper updrafts producing lightning. ..Grams.. 02/05/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
