SPC Sep 6, 2022 0100 UTC Day 1 Convective Outlook

SPC 0100Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0755 PM CDT Mon Sep 05 2022 Valid 060100Z - 061200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... A few strong storms may persist early this evening over parts of northern Texas, but the overall severe threat is low. ...North TX... A few meandering cells persist in the vicinity of the Metroplex, which is also near the MLCAPE axis and beneath a midlevel thermal trough. The 00Z FWD sounding shows around 3000 J/kg MLCAPE and very little CIN. Lift along surging outflows and an uncapped air mass may yield sporadic strong cells for a few more hours this evening with gusty winds and perhaps small hail. In addition to the loss of heating, winds below 700 mb will remain very weak, limiting convergence and storm-relative inflow. ..Jewell.. 09/06/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
