Isolated severe thunderstorms are possible across the central High Plains on Friday.

...Synopsis and Discussion...

Upper troughing is forecast to extend from the Canadian Prairie Provinces southeastward off the Northeast Coast early Friday morning, anchored by a pair of closed lows, one over central Saskatchewan/Manitoba and the other Lake Huron. This troughing is expected to persist throughout much of the period, while upper ridging builds from the southern Plains into the Pacific Northwest. Enhanced northwesterly flow aloft will exist between these two features, extending from the northern Rockies through the Upper/Mid MS and OH Valleys and into the Northeast.

At the surface, a cold will likely extend from a low over southern New England southward off the East Coast before then arcing more southwestward from coastal NC into central GA and westward back into northeast TX. A few thunderstorms are possible ahead of this front over coastal NC and the Outer Banks, as well as central and eastern Gulf Coast into the Florida Peninsula. Weak shear should keep the severe potential low.

Farther west across the southern Plains, the front will become increasingly diffuse, with it likely returning northward as a warm front during the afternoon and evening as moisture returns back across the southern and central High Plains. Strong mixing is anticipated across much of the southern High Plains, with less mixing along the warm front into the central High Plains. As a result, 60s dewpoints are likely into eastern CO/western KS in near the lee trough. Thunderstorm development appears possible as a result, with moderate vertical shear supporting the potential for organized storms capable of large hail and damaging gusts. The lack of larger scale forcing suggests isolated coverage, but there is some chance that a low-amplitude shortwave trough moves through the ridge, helping to increase coverage. Greater storm coverage would increase the likelihood of upscale growth and the development of a convective line. However, predictability of that evolution is currently low.
