DAY 2 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1202 PM CDT THU MAY 05 2016

VALID 061200Z - 071200Z

...THERE IS A MRGL RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PARTS OF THE
INTERMOUNTAIN WEST...CNTRL ROCKIES AND NRN HIGH PLAINS...

...SUMMARY...
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS...A FEW SEVERE WITH HAIL...ARE EXPECTED
ACROSS THE INTERIOR WEST FROM PARTS OF SOUTHEASTERN OREGON EASTWARD
INTO SOUTHERN WYOMING AND FAR WESTERN NEBRASKA.

...INTERMOUNTAIN WEST/CNTRL ROCKIES/NRN HIGH PLAINS...
AN UPPER-LEVEL LOW IS FORECAST TO MOVE EWD INTO THE SWRN U.S. ON
FRIDAY AS A COLD FRONT ADVANCES SWD ACROSS THE NWRN AND NCNTRL
STATES. THE FRONT IS FORECAST TO BE LOCATED FROM ERN ORE EXTENDING
EWD INTO SRN WY AND FAR NWRN NEB BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON. AS SFC HEATING
TAKES PLACE ON FRIDAY...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY DEVELOP
ALONG THE BOUNDARY WITH A GRADUAL EXPANSION OF CONVECTIVE COVERAGE
DURING THE AFTERNOON. INCREASING INSTABILITY COMBINED WITH STEEP
LAPSE RATES AND COLD AIR ALOFT ASSOCIATED WITH THE UPPER-LEVEL LOW
WILL MAKE HAIL A POSSIBILITY WITH THE STRONGER UPDRAFTS. INSTABILITY
IS NOT FORECAST TO BE STRONG ENOUGH FOR A SUBSTANTIAL SEVERE WEATHER
THREAT AND THE POTENTIAL FOR HAIL SHOULD REMAIN ISOLATED.
