SPC Mar 29, 2022 Day 4-8 Severe Weather Outlook

Day 4-8 Outlook Day 4-8 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0311 AM CDT Tue Mar 29 2022 Valid 011200Z - 061200Z ...DISCUSSION... Previous frontal intrusion and an expansive area of high pressure will result in dry and stable conditions across the majority of the central and eastern CONUS on D4/Friday. Low-level moisture and attendant buoyancy will likely remain confined to the Gulf Coast on D5/Saturday, before potentially returning northward across the southern Plains on D6/Sunday. Medium-range guidance remains inconsistent with the overall pattern evolution this weekend, but some thunderstorm potential could correspond with this returning low-level moisture if the shortwaves are timed favorably. Guidance is beginning to show the development of western CONUS troughing early next week. Differences within the guidance lead to limited predictability right now, but some severe potential will likely result once this troughing interacts with the moisture returning across the Plains.
