SPC Aug 2, 2022 0730 UTC Day 3 Severe Thunderstorm Outlook

SPC 0730Z Day 3 Outlook Day 3 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0211 AM CDT Tue Aug 02 2022 Valid 041200Z - 051200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Organized severe storms are not expected on Thursday, but sporadic strong storms may produce gusty winds over portions of the interior West, and from the Missouri Valley into the Northeast. ...Synopsis... An upper high will build over the central High Plains Thursday, with relatively weak flow aloft across most of the CONUS. The exception will be from the Pacific Northwest into the Dakotas, as the base of a shortwave trough moves across MT. Low pressure will be focused over SK during the day, with westerlies generally resulting in weakly unstable conditions until late overnight when the low-level jet increases over the eastern Dakotas. Here, a few elevated storms will be possible, but weak instability should preclude any severe risk. Elsewhere, a warm and moist air mass will exist from the lower MO valley into the Northeast, with various clusters of storms along and south of a stationary front. Given the generally weakening upper flow regime and rising heights, concentrated areas of severe storms are currently not anticipated. ..Jewell.. 08/02/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
