Day 4-8 Convective Outlook

Valid 101200Z - 151200Z

Medium-range models remain in general agreement suggesting a broad,
low-amplitude upper flow pattern should develop across the much of
the contiguous U.S. this weekend into early next week (day
4/Saturday through at least day 7/Tuesday).  Despite this
similarity, the 00Z ECMWF and GFS continue to differ in the timing
and amplification of the day-3 Pacific trough, as it tracks farther
inland to the central states.  This combined with uncertainty in the
degree of moisture return across the Texas coastal plain to perhaps
east Texas and Louisiana provides for low confidence to include a
15-percent severe weather area across portions of the northwest Gulf
Coast region on day 5/Sunday.
