Day 4-8 Outlook Day 4-8 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0342 AM CDT Sat Apr 21 2018 Valid 241200Z - 291200Z ...DISCUSSION... Medium-range guidance is in reasonable agreement that upper ridging west of the Rockies will persist into next weekend while a series of shortwave troughs contribute to broad upper troughing across the central and eastern CONUS.

There is some potential for a cold front resulting from one of the shortwave troughs to interact with a moderately moist and unstable airmass supportive of strong thunderstorms. However, low consistency within the guidance currread more »
