DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK  
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0649 AM CST SAT NOV 22 2014

VALID 221300Z - 231200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PORTIONS OF CNTRL AND
SRN TX...

...THERE IS A MRGL RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PARTS OF TX INTO SRN
LA...

...SUMMARY...
ISOLATED SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE TODAY INTO TONIGHT ACROSS
PARTS OF CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN TEXAS INTO MID AND UPPER TEXAS COASTAL
AREAS.

...SYNOPSIS...

A SPLIT-FLOW REGIME PRESENT OVER THE CONUS WILL UNDERGO
AMPLIFICATION OWING TO THE MOVEMENT OF MID AND UPPER-LEVEL WIND
MAXIMA FROM THE ORE/NRN CA COASTS INTO THE SRN ROCKIES. THE
PROGRESSION OF THESE FEATURES WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF
A LONGER-WAVELENGTH TROUGH OVER THE ROCKIES INTO HIGH PLAINS...AND
THE EWD TRANSLATION AND GRADUAL DE-AMPLIFICATION OF A SRN-BRANCH
SHORT-WAVE TROUGH ACROSS SRN TX.

AT THE SURFACE...AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE OVER THE LOWER RIO GRANDE
VALLEY WILL UNDERGO SLIGHT DEEPENING WHILE DEVELOPING SEWD INTO SRN
TX BY EVENING...PRIOR TO RE-CURVING NEWD TOWARD THE ARKLATEX LATE
TONIGHT INTO EARLY SUNDAY. A WEAK COLD FRONT OR DRYLINE-TYPE FEATURE
WILL ACCOMPANY THIS CYCLONE ACROSS PORTIONS OF CNTRL INTO ERN TX
WHILE AN ASSOCIATED WARM FRONT LIFTS NWD THROUGH THE SABINE RIVER
VALLEY INTO OZARK PLATEAU. FARTHER SOUTH...A SECONDARY WARM FRONT OR
MARINE BOUNDARY WILL MOVE NWD THROUGH THE SHELF WATERS TOWARD THE
GULF COAST. ELSEWHERE...LEE CYCLOGENESIS WILL OCCUR TODAY OVER THE
CNTRL HIGH PLAINS WITH THIS LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPING EWD OR SEWD INTO
S-CNTRL KS OR NWRN/N-CNTRL OK BY 23/12Z. THIS LOW WILL BE
ACCOMPANIED BY A COLD FRONT SURGING EWD THROUGH THE NRN PLAINS AND
SEWD THROUGH THE CNTRL HIGH PLAINS.  

...TX TODAY THROUGH TONIGHT...

SHOWERS AND TSTMS ARE ONGOING THIS MORNING FROM THE PERMIAN
BASIN...EDWARDS PLATEAU AND HILL COUNTRY OF TX INTO CNTRL OK WITH
THIS ACTIVITY LIKELY BEING DRIVEN BY WAA/ISENTROPIC ASCENT ALONG THE
AXIS OF A SLY LLJ. 12Z OBSERVED SOUNDINGS REVEAL A FAVORABLE OVERLAP
OF STEEP MID-LEVEL LAPSE RATES AND A MOIST BOUNDARY LAYER WHICH WILL
COMBINE WITH THESE SAME FORCING MECHANISMS WITHIN THE WARM-CONVEYOR
AIR STREAM TO PROMOTE AN AREAL INCREASE IN TSTMS TODAY FROM CNTRL TX
NWD THROUGH THE RED RIVER VALLEY. 

A CLUSTER OF STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS MAY MATERIALIZE BY AFTERNOON
OVER CNTRL TX ALONG THE SRN FRINGE OF THE ABOVE-MENTIONED TSTM
REGIME WHERE LOCALLY STRONGER AIR MASS DESTABILIZATION IS
ANTICIPATED. HERE...FORECAST HODOGRAPHS EXHIBIT A VEER-BACK WIND
PROFILE WITH HEIGHT AND SOME WEAKNESS IN WIND SPEEDS AROUND 750 MB.
THIS WOULD SUGGEST A MIXTURE OF STORM MODES WITH THE PRIMARY HAZARDS
BEING LARGE HAIL AND LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS. THESE STORMS MAY
EVENTUALLY GROW UPSCALE INTO AN MCS THAT WOULD TRACK ESEWD INTO SERN
TX TONIGHT WITH A CONTINUED RISK FOR ISOLATED SEVERE WEATHER.

FARTHER TO THE SOUTH...A SECONDARY CORRIDOR OF POTENTIALLY MORE
ROBUST STORMS MAY DEVELOP LATER THIS AFTERNOON INTO EVENING EITHER
ALONG THE HIGH TERRAIN WEST OF THE RIO GRANDE...AND/OR INVOF THE
SURFACE LOW AND TRAILING FRONT/DRYLINE MOVING THROUGH THE EDWARDS
PLATEAU AND DEEP SOUTH TX. GIVEN THE CO-LOCATION OF 40-50+ KT
EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR WITH STEEP MID-LEVEL LAPSE RATES AND A MOIST
BOUNDARY LAYER /AND RESULTING MLCAPE OF 1000-2000 J PER KG/...THE
SETUP WILL BE QUITE FAVORABLE FOR SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF VERY LARGE
HAIL AND PERHAPS A TORNADO OR TWO THOUGH THIS EVENING. BY
TONIGHT...STORMS MAY COALESCE INTO A N-S-ORIENTED BAND /POSSIBLY
MERGING WITH THE TSTM REGIME TO THE NORTH/ WITH THE RISK FOR
DAMAGING WINDS...SEVERE HAIL...AND POSSIBLY A COUPLE TORNADOES
SPREADING EWD ALONG THE TX COASTAL PLAIN.

...CNTRL GULF COAST LATE TONIGHT/EARLY SUNDAY...

THE SERN TX MCS MENTIONED IN THE PREVIOUS SECTION WILL LIKELY MOVE
THROUGH THE LOWER SABINE RIVER VALLEY LATE TONIGHT INTO EARLY SUNDAY
WHERE IT WILL INTERACT WITH THE WARM FRONT MOVING ONSHORE. WHILE
ISOLATED SEVERE WEATHER IS POSSIBLE...CURRENT MODEL GUIDANCE
SUGGESTS THAT INSTABILITY WILL REMAIN QUITE WEAK THROUGH 23/12Z.
OTHER MAINLY ELEVATED TSTMS ARE LIKELY TO FORM DOWNSTREAM OVER
S-CNTRL/SERN LA WITHIN A ZONE OF ENHANCED LOW-LEVEL ASCENT
IMMEDIATELY TO THE NORTH OF THE MARINE/WARM FRONT. ANY ASSOCIATED
SEVERE WEATHER THREAT APPEARS LOW AT THIS TIME.
