SPC Outlooks: 7/27/15-8/3/15

I will be improving this forecast section over the next few weeks.

Day 1: There is an Enhanced Risk over parts of the Northern Great Plains. Strong storms are occurring at the exit region of a jetstreak that is passing through the area.

Day 2: There is a Marginal Risk over a good swath of the country. The primary threat is due to a shortwave trough moving east, and a trailing cold front moving through the Great Lakes Region.

Day 3: Similar to Day 2, only shifted east over the Atlantic Coast.

Days 4-8 are currently marked as “Predictability Too Low.”

The greatest shear is forecasted to be in Canada, but there is an expected cold front that will extend southward, and there may be some storms along and ahead of this cold front on Day 4.

The forecast does not mention Day 5.

Days 6 and 7 will see a moisture return ahead of a cold front moving through the upper Mississippi River valley, moving east by Sunday. Moderate instability and some deep-layer shear may warrant severe threats.

The forecast does not mention Day 8.

Thank you for reading this post.
