SPC 0100Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0759 PM CDT Thu Sep 01 2022 Valid 020100Z - 021200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Organized severe thunderstorms are not forecast across the contiguous United States through tonight. ...Discussion... Water-vapor imagery early this evening shows a mid- to upper-level trough over KS/OK moving slowly east before reaching the Ozarks by early Friday morning. A localized risk for a strong thunderstorm or two will likely remain confined to early this evening over parts of western OK/TX Panhandle north into central KS. The Amarillo, TX and Dodge City, KS 00 UTC raobs show weak buoyancy but modest 20-30 kt mid-level northerlies---supporting marginal storm organization. However, a gradually cooling boundary layer will lead to weakening storms with time. Elsewhere, isolated thunderstorms are possible this evening into the overnight across the northern Great Plains. ..Smith.. 09/02/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
