LIVE MAP (ABOVE) ... SPC 1200Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1150 PM CST Mon Nov 07 2022 Valid 081200Z - 091200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Organized severe thunderstorms are unlikely across the continental U.S. today and tonight. ...DISCUSSION... At upper-levels, a low will move inland across northern California today as flow remains southwesterly across much of the western half of the nation. An upper-level ridge will remain in place across the eastern U.S. At the surface, high pressure will dominate from the Mississippi Valley eastward to the Atlantic Coast. Out west, a dual-centered low will move into northern California and central Nevada by afternoon. Widespread large-scale ascent, associated with the upper-level system, will make thunderstorm development possible today across much of California and the Intermountain West. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will also be possible today from Oklahoma north-northeastward into the upper Mississippi Valley, along and near a corridor of strong low-level flow. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms may also develop in parts of south Texas and across the Florida Peninsula. No severe threat is expected today or tonight across the continental United States. ..Broyles/Thornton.. 11/08/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
