NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1249 AM CDT FRI OCT 31 2014

VALID 011200Z - 021200Z

...NO SVR TSTM AREAS FORECAST...

...SUMMARY...
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF THE GREAT
BASIN AND ROCKY MOUNTAIN STATES...AS WELL AS PARTS OF THE
MID-ATLANTIC COAST/COASTAL CAROLINAS.

...SYNOPSIS...
A HIGHLY AMPLIFIED UPPER FLOW FIELD WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE U.S.
SATURDAY...WITH WRN AND ERN TROUGHS -- FLANKING A CENTRAL U.S. RIDGE
-- MAKING GRADUAL EWD PROGRESS.

WITH A COOL/CONTINENTAL SURFACE AIRMASS IN PLACE ACROSS MOST OF THE
U.S. E OF THE ROCKIES...DEEP/MOIST CONVECTION WILL GENERALLY BE
MINIMIZED IN MOST AREAS.  SHOWERS AND A FEW STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE
INVOF THE E COAST BENEATH THE ERN TROUGH...BUT INSTABILITY SHOULD
REMAIN INSUFFICIENT FOR ANY SEVERE RISK.

IN THE W...STEEPENING LAPSE RATES ASSOCIATED WITH THE WRN U.S.
TROUGH WILL SUPPORT AFTERNOON DEVELOPMENT OF SHOWERS AND
EMBEDDED/ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE INTERIOR
W/ROCKIES.  HOWEVER...RISK FOR SEVERE WEATHER APPEARS MINIMAL DUE TO
LACK OF APPRECIABLE CAPE.
