SPC 0100Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0757 PM CDT Wed Aug 31 2022 Valid 010100Z - 011200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Organized severe thunderstorms are not forecast across the contiguous United States tonight. ...Synopsis... Early evening water-vapor imagery shows an upper-level trough moving southeast across the central High Plains and another disturbance over the Pacific NW. These upper features are rotating around the periphery of a mid to upper-level ridge centered over the north-central Rockies. Farther east, a vigorous mid-level trough is pivoting through the base of a larger-scale trough centered over Quebec. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will remain possible in association with the three aforementioned disturbances this evening. Waning instability will likely lead to both a reduction in thunderstorm coverage this evening and weakening storms. ..Smith.. 09/01/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
