Quote:DAY 2 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1229 AM CST TUE FEB 14 2012

VALID 151200Z - 161200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS WED AND WED NIGHT ACROSS PARTS
OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS EASTWARD THROUGH THE CNTRL GULF STATES...

...SYNOPSIS...
LITTLE CHANGE TO THE GENERAL LARGE SCALE PATTERN IS EXPECTED THROUGH
THIS FORECAST PERIOD. MODELS INDICATE THAT A SERIES OF SHORT WAVE
IMPULSES WILL CONTINUE TO EMERGE FROM A STRONG MID LATITUDE PACIFIC
JET AND PROGRESS AROUND BROADER SCALE EASTERN PACIFIC UPPER
RIDGING...BEFORE SPLITTING OFF INTO AT LEAST A COUPLE OF LINGERING
BRANCHES OF STRONGER FLOW ACROSS NORTH AMERICA. AS A RESULT...THE
VIGOROUS CLOSED LOW/SHORT WAVE TROUGH...NOW DIGGING INTO THE
SOUTHERN PLATEAU...IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN PROGRESSIVE...AND LIKELY BE
IN THE PROCESS OF ACCELERATING EAST NORTHEAST OF THE ROCKIES BY
EARLY WEDNESDAY. GUIDANCE STILL INDICATES THAT THIS WILL BE
PRECEDED BY THE NORTHWARD EXPANSION OF SUBTROPICAL RIDGING INTO THE
LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AND SOUTHEAST STATES. BUT THE UPSTREAM
IMPULSE MAY RESULT IN SOME SUPPRESSION OF THE RIDGE ACROSS THE NORTH
CENTRAL GULF STATES INTO THE TENNESSEE VALLEY...AS IT LIFTS
NORTHEAST OF THE SOUTH CENTRAL PLAINS THROUGH THE MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI
VALLEY LATE WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

CONSIDERABLE SPREAD PERSISTS AMONG THE VARIOUS MODELS CONCERNING THE
ASSOCIATED LOW-LEVEL CYCLOGENESIS...WHICH WILL SUBSTANTIALLY IMPACT
POTENTIAL FOR INLAND BOUNDARY LAYER DESTABILIZATION ACROSS THE LOWER
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY/CENTRAL GULF STATES...AS WELL AS THE LOW-LEVEL
SHEAR. HOWEVER...A SUBSTANTIVE INLAND RETURN FLOW OF MOISTURE OFF
THE WESTERN GULF OF MEXICO SEEMS PROBABLE...WITH A TONGUE OF
PRECIPITABLE WATER ON THE ORDER OF 1 TO 1.5+ INCHES ADVECTING
NORTHWARD ACROSS AND EAST OF THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WEDNESDAY
NIGHT. THIS IS EXPECTED TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE RISK FOR THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY ACROSS A LARGE PORTION OF THE SOUTH CENTRAL STATES...WITH
POTENTIAL FOR AT LEAST A FEW SEVERE STORMS.

...SOUTHEAST TEXAS EASTWARD THROUGH THE CENTRAL GULF STATES...
ALTHOUGH MUCH MODEL VARIABILITY PERSISTS...THE NAM/SREF...GFS AND
ECMWF ARE FAIRLY CLOSE WITH A FOCUSED AREA OF DIFLUENT UPPER
FLOW...BETWEEN THE SHORT WAVE TROUGH AND SUBTROPICAL RIDGE...
SHIFTING FROM PARTS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS THROUGH NORTHERN AND CENTRAL
LOUISIANA/MISSISSIPPI AND ALABAMA DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. THIS MAY PROVE FAVORABLE FOR AN ASSOCIATED REGION OF
STRONG AND FOCUSED ASCENT...AIDED BY LOW-LEVEL WARM ADVECTION...TO
INTERCEPT RICHER MOISTURE RETURN. AND THE ENVIRONMENT PROBABLY WILL
BECOME CONDUCIVE TO THE EVOLUTION OF AN ORGANIZED STORM CLUSTER...OR
CLUSTERS...AND PERHAPS DISCRETE SUPERCELLS...AS WEST SOUTHWESTERLY
500 MB FLOW STRENGTHENS TO 50-70+ KT.

THE ECMWF HAS BEEN MORE SUGGESTIVE THAN THE OTHER MODELS OF
POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT SURFACE CYCLONE DEEPENING ACROSS THE
MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WEDNESDAY NIGHT...PERHAPS AIDED BY PHASING
OF THE SOUTHERN BRANCH IMPULSE WITH A DIGGING NORTHERN BRANCH
TROUGH. IF THIS OCCURS...STRONGER SURFACE PRESSURE FALLS COULD AID
BOUNDARY LAYER DESTABILIZATION ACROSS MISSISSIPPI AND ALABAMA...WITH
STRONGER SOUTHERLY 850 MB FLOW ALSO CONTRIBUTING TO LARGE AND
CLOCKWISE CURVED LOW-LEVEL HODOGRAPHS. THIS WOULD PROVIDE POTENTIAL
FOR A GREATER SEVERE RISK THAN CURRENTLY INDICATED...INCLUDING THE
POSSIBILITY OF A STRONG TORNADO OR TWO.

Slight chance of severe Wednesday night into Thursday morning
FROM LAKE CHARLES NWS:
Quote:There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms across the entire area today and tonight. Thunderstorms are expected to begin developing across east Texas and into Western Louisiana early this afternoon...spreading East through the remainder of the area through the rest of the afternoon and evening...and into the overnight hours across parts of east and South Central Louisiana. Damaging winds and tornadoes are the primary risks associated with any severe thunderstorms...though large hail is also possible. In addition to the risk of severe weather...very high atmospheric moisture will result in the potential for locally heavy rainfall...as thunderstorms will be capable of intense rainfall rates.

Quote:THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF THE NORTHWEST
GULF OF MEXICO...CENTRAL LOUISIANA...SOUTH CENTRAL LOUISIANA...
SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA...WEST CENTRAL LOUISIANA AND SOUTHEAST TEXAS.

DAY ONE
TODAY AND TONIGHT

THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE ENTIRE
OUTLOOK AREA TODAY AND TONIGHT.

THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO BEGIN DEVELOPING ACROSS EAST TEXAS
AND INTO WESTERN LOUISIANA EARLY THIS AFTERNOON...SPREADING EAST
THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE AREA THROUGH THE REST OF THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING...AND INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS ACROSS PARTS
OF EAST AND SOUTH CENTRAL LOUISIANA.

DAMAGING WINDS AND TORNADOES ARE THE PRIMARY RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH
ANY SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS...THOUGH LARGE HAIL IS ALSO POSSIBLE.

IN ADDITION TO THE RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER...VERY HIGH ATMOSPHERIC
MOISTURE WILL RESULT IN THE POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL...AS THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF INTENSE RAINFALL
RATES.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN
THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

THE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL COME TO AN END BY LATE
WEDNESDAY NIGHT OR EARLY THURSDAY MORNING WITH THE PASSAGE OF A
COOL FRONT.

GOOD RAIN CHANCES WILL RETURN TO THE REGION FRIDAY INTO
SATURDAY...BUT NO SEVERE WEATHER IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT

STORM SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE REQUIRED TODAY AND TONIGHT.

Nope, stuck at the office working 11 hour days. Way to busy.

But I might get out tonight provided there is anything near bye.

AREAS AFFECTED...N-CNTRL/NERN OK...FAR S-CNTRL/SERN KS

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY

VALID 151926Z - 152100Z

A BRIEF WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY WILL EXIST FOR A FEW SURFACE BASED
THUNDERSTORMS DURING THE AFTERNOON OVER PORTIONS OF N-CNTRL/NERN OK
AND FAR S-CNTRL/SERN KS. MARGINALLY SVR HAIL WILL BE POSSIBLE...BUT
A WW IS UNLIKELY.

AT 19Z...SUBJECTIVE SURFACE ANALYSIS SHOWS AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE
OVER NWRN/N-CNTRL OK...WITH AN OCCLUDED FRONT EXTENDING SWD FROM THE
LOW ACROSS CNTRL OK INTO NRN TX. SURFACE WINDS W OF THE OCCLUDED
FRONT HAVE ACCELERATED OUT OF THE W AS THE BOUNDARY LAYER BECOMES
WELL MIXED BENEATH A MIDLEVEL VORT LOBE ADVANCING EWD ACROSS WRN OK.
MEANWHILE...LOW 50S SURFACE DEWPOINTS ARE ADVECTING NWD INTO N-CNTRL
OK IMMEDIATELY E OF THE OCCLUDED FRONT. TRANSITION ZONE BETWEEN
STRONGER SURFACE HEATING OVER WRN OK AND MOISTENING OVER
CNTRL/N-CNTRL OK WILL CONTINUE TO AID IN DESTABILIZATION WITH SBCAPE
VALUES UP TO 500 J/KG POSSIBLE BY MID AFTERNOON. THIS MAY FAVOR
ISOLATED SURFACE BASED THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT AS CONVERGENCE ALONG
THE FRONT INCREASES DURING THE NEXT FEW HRS. MIDLEVEL SWLY FLOW AOA
50 KT IS CONTRIBUTING TOWARD STRONG DEEP-LAYER VERTICAL WIND SHEAR
/I.E. 0-6 KM BULK WIND DIFFERENCE EXCEEDING 70 KT/...WHICH WILL
FAVOR ORGANIZED LOW-TOPPED THUNDERSTORMS. THE STRONG SHEAR COMBINED
WITH MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES AOA 7 C/KM SUGGESTS STRONGER CORES MAY
POSE A THREAT FOR MARGINALLY SVR HAIL. HOWEVER...SIGNIFICANT
LIMITING FACTOR FOR GREATER SVR WEATHER THREAT WILL BE TENDENCY FOR
STORMS TO ENCOUNTER COOL/STABLE AIRMASS E OF THE FRONT /WHICH MAY
LIMIT STORM PERSISTENCE AND STRENGTH/...WHERE LOW CLOUDS HAVE BEEN
SLOW TO ERODE.

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY

VALID 152114Z - 152245Z

BOUTS OF ISOLATED SEVERE HAIL/GUSTY WINDS MAY PERSIST ACROSS
NORTHERN/CENTRAL PORTIONS OF LA INTO ADJACENT PARTS OF AR/MS THROUGH
LATE AFTERNOON. A SEVERE THREAT /AND HEAVY RAINFALL/ MAY ALSO
INCREASE TO A DEGREE THROUGH MID/LATE AFTERNOON ACROSS COASTAL
SOUTHEAST TX. A WATCH IS NOT CURRENTLY ANTICIPATED IN EITHER
CASE...BUT THE NEED FOR A WATCH CANNOT BE RULED OUT ACROSS SOUTHEAST
TX IF A CONVECTIVE UPSWING OCCURS.

AT MID-AFTERNOON...A WELL-SUSTAINED/INCREASINGLY ORGANIZED AND
MAINLY ELEVATED CONVECTIVE QUASI-LINEAR COMPLEX CONTINUES TO
STEADILY EXPAND/PROGRESS EAST-NORTHEASTWARD INTO NORTHERN/CENTRAL
LA. ON THIS NORTH AND EAST PERIPHERY OF THIS MCS...SUSTAINED
ASCENT/WARM ADVECTION AND THE PRESENCE OF WEAK ELEVATED BUOYANCY MAY
CONTINUE TO SUPPORT SOME SEVERE HAIL THREAT...ALTHOUGH SUCH A RISK
WILL TEND TO REMAIN EPISODIC/MARGINAL IN NATURE. AN EXPANDING MCS
COLD POOL AND THE INCREASINGLY ORGANIZED NATURE OF THE MCS
/INCLUDING APPARENT MCV TENDENCIES/ LEADS CREDENCE TO SOME POTENTIAL
FOR STRONG GUSTY WINDS...ALTHOUGH THE ELEVATED NATURE OF THE MCS AND
MODEST LAPSE RATES/BUOYANCY AHEAD OF IT SHOULD CONTINUE TO TEMPER
POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE-CALIBER DOWNDRAFTS...EVEN WHERE MODEST CLOUD
BREAKS AND SURFACE HEATING /AROUND 70 F/ ARE OCCURRING IN
SOUTH-CENTRAL LA.

FARTHER SOUTHWEST ACROSS THE COASTAL PLAIN OF SOUTHEAST TX...MOIST
LOW-LEVEL CONFLUENCE IMMEDIATELY AHEAD OF A SLOWLY ADVANCING PACIFIC
COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT CONVECTIVE REGENERATION WITH A
SOUTHWEST-NORTHEAST ORIENTED CORRIDOR. ALONG WITH A SUSTAINED HEAVY
RAINFALL THREAT...SOME SURFACE BASED SEVERE THREAT COULD MATERIALIZE
ON THE SOUTHWEST FLANK OF THE CURRENT MCS WHERE THE AIRMASS HAS
DESTABILIZED /750-1500 J PER KG/ AMID A VERY MOIST AIRMASS /NEAR 70F
SURFACE DEWPOINTS/ AND LIMITED CLOUD BREAKS. WHILE THE COMBINATION
OF VERTICAL SHEAR/INSTABILITY COULD SUPPORT A SEVERE THREAT
INCLUDING SUPERCELLS...PERSISTENT CLOUD COVER AND MODEST CONVERGENCE
AMID NEBULOUS LARGE SCALE INFLUENCES ARE CONTRIBUTING TO UNCERTAINTY
TO THE EXTENT/LIKELIHOOD OF THE SEVERE RISK.
NONETHELESS...CONVECTIVE TRENDS WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED FOR
THE POSSIBILITY OF AN INCREASING SEVERE THREAT ACROSS SOUTHEAST TX
THIS AFTERNOON.
