SPC Jun 3, 2022 Day 4-8 Severe Weather Outlook

Day 4-8 Outlook Day 4-8 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0252 AM CDT Fri Jun 03 2022 Valid 061200Z - 111200Z ...DISCUSSION... The overall large-scale mid/upper level pattern will become quasi-zonal over the west with developing northwesterly flow spreading over the Plains to central U.S. as a trough is maintained across the eastern states. A large reservoir of low-level moisture will be maintained from the central/southern Plains eastward to the MS Valley vicinity. Daily rounds of thunderstorms along parts of the central/southern High Plains, perhaps developing into MCSs spreading east across KS/OK/TX appear likely nearly every day during the extended period. Given a moist/unstable airmass and at least modest shear, some threat for strong to severe convection is possible over the Plains. However, given several rounds of convection are possible both in the short term and through the extended, the location of greater severe potential each day is somewhat uncertain, precluding probabilities at this time.
