Day 4 - 8 Outlook
Day 4-8 Severe Weather Outlook. A depicted severe weather area indicates a 30% or higher probability for severe thunderstorms within 25 miles of a point.

PREDICTABILITY TOO LOW is used to indicate severe storms may be possible based on some model scenarios. However, the location or occurrence of severe storms are in doubt due to:
  1. 1) large differences in the deterministic model solutions,
  2. 2) large spread in the ensemble guidance, and/or
  3. 3) minimal run-to-run continuity.
POTENTIAL TOO LOW means the threat for a regional area of organized severe storms appears highly unlikely during the entire period (e.g. less than a 30% probability for a regional severe storm area across the CONUS through the entire Day 4-8 period).

While considerable uncertainty remains regarding the evolution of
the synoptic pattern in the D4/Monday-D8/Friday time frame,
medium-range guidance shows some agreement in the general evolution
around the middle of the week. Indeed, a potentially closed cyclone
will migrate eastward from the Four Corners to the southern/central
Plains D5/Tuesday into D6/Wednesday, with this migration in response
to an upstream trough over the Pacific Northwest. As the impulse
reaches the central US, it may be accompanied by some thunderstorm
activity, with forecast soundings suggesting weak elevated buoyancy.
However, low-level moisture return will be considerably hampered by
early-week ridging in the wake of a shortwave trough advancing
southeast over the Gulf. Therefore, despite the presence of vigorous
mid-level wind fields, the potential for any substantive
destabilization (and related severe potential) appears low at this

Thereafter, the upstream trough may push eastward across the central
US through the end of the week. However, once again, low-level
moisture will probably be quite limited, tempering any severe
