...DISCUSSION...
THE ECMWF AND GFS MODELS BEGIN THE DAY 4 TO 8 PERIOD WITH AN
UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE OVER ERN PARTS OF THE GREAT PLAINS AND MOVE THIS
FEATURE EWD INTO THE MID TO UPPER MS VALLEY ON FRIDAY/DAY 4. AT THE
SAME TIME...AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH IS FORECAST TO MOVE INTO THE HIGH
PLAINS FRIDAY AFTERNOON OVER A MOIST AIRMASS. THIS WOULD SUGGEST
THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT WITH SOME POSSIBLY SEVERE...MAY OCCUR IN
THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING ON FRIDAY IN THE SRN AND CNTRL
PLAINS. THE UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH IS FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS THE CNTRL
PLAINS AND UPPER MIDWEST ON SATURDAY/DAY 5. THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT
WILL AGAIN BE POSSIBLE SATURDAY AFTERNOON ALONG THE TROUGH DURING
THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. ALTHOUGH THE ECMWF AND GFS
SOLUTIONS DIVERGE ON SUNDAY/DAY 6...BOTH SOLUTIONS MOVE THE
UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH EWD ACROSS THE MID MS AND LOWER OH VALLEYS.
THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE POSSIBLE FROM THE OH VALLEY SWWD
INTO THE MID MS VALLEY AND SRN PLAINS SUNDAY AFTERNOON. ON
MONDAY/DAY 7...BOTH SOLUTIONS DRIVE A COLD FRONT SEWD INTO THE GULF
COAST STATES SUGGESTING THAT THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WILL BE POSSIBLE
THERE MONDAY AFTERNOON. ALTHOUGH THERE APPEARS TO BE A REASONABLE
CHANCE FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT IN PARTS OF THE GREAT
PLAINS AND UPPER MIDWEST ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY...UNCERTAINTY STILL
REMAINS CONCERNING THE AMOUNT INSTABILITY THAT WILL BE IN PLACE
REGARDING THE SEVERE THREAT.
