SPC Jun 9, 2022 0730 UTC Day 3 Severe Thunderstorm Outlook

SPC 0730Z Day 3 Outlook Day 3 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0222 AM CDT Thu Jun 09 2022 Valid 111200Z - 121200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Organized severe thunderstorms are not anticipated on Saturday. ...Synopsis... A large-scale trough will lift northeast across the eastern U.S. on Saturday. Further west, a strong upper anticyclone will be centered over the southern Rockies vicinity with an amplifying ridge building into Plains. Increasing northwest flow aloft will overspread parts of the Upper Midwest toward IL/IN atop increasing low-level moisture. Guidance varies on how much destabilization will occur over this region, but some thunderstorm development across southeast MN/WI, spreading southeast into northern IL/IN appears possible as a cold front drops southward across the Great Lakes. If enough destabilization can occur, some threat for gusty winds may materialize. However, confidence in this scenario is too low to include probabilities at this time. Otherwise, scattered thunderstorms are possible across parts of the central Gulf Coast toward the coastal Carolinas. While a moist and unstable airmass will reside over these regions, vertical shear will be quite weak, limiting organized severe convection. However, a few strong gusts could accompany strong cells. ..Leitman.. 06/09/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
