SPC Oct 9, 2022 0600 UTC Day 1 Convective Outlook

LIVE MAP (ABOVE) ... SPC 1200Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1200 AM CDT Sun Oct 09 2022 Valid 091200Z - 101200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Organized severe thunderstorms appear unlikely today. ...Southwest... Scattered convection should develop today across parts of the Southwest associated with a slow-moving upper low centered over southern Arizona and northwestern Mexico. A few strong thunderstorms capable of gusty winds and small hail may occur from southeastern AZ into far west TX where somewhat greater instability is forecast to develop this afternoon. But, weak deep-layer shear will likely limit the threat for organized severe thunderstorms. ...South/Central Florida Peninsula... Scattered thunderstorms are forecast across parts of the south/central Florida Peninsula later today, as tropical low-level moisture gradually returns to this region. Moderate instability that develops by peak afternoon heating may support some strong thunderstorms through the early evening, but modest deep-layer flow and related shear should hinder updraft organization. ..Gleason/Bentley.. 10/09/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
