Day 1 Severe Weather Outlook

Valid 021200Z – 031200Z


Severe storms are not expected across the U.S. mainland today.

…Pacific Northwest Coast…

Isolated thunderstorms might be ongoing at the start of this period
along a portion of the WA coast in association with steep lapse
rates and a leading vorticity maximum embedded within a progressive
synoptic trough. A secondary upstream shortwave trough will move
onto the WA and OR coasts this afternoon accompanied by a cold
front. The steep lapse rate environment should result in up to 250
J/kg MUCAPE through a sufficiently deep layer for isolated
thunderstorms along the front as it moves onshore.
