Looking Ahead Out West
Looking deeper into May, there could be some localized severe leading into the weekend as the Southwest trough slowly ejects. The next notable threat is across the High Plains by early next week. While the Euro is a bit more vigorous with a trough digging into the Pacific Northwest, it’s still there with the Euro ensemble mean to a lesser degree. Maybe a bit similar to what some chasers saw yesterday and could see later today (Monday).
At least we’re looking at greater moisture return and with more northward extent than what’s verified so far this spring. That’s good for drought-stricken areas and at least helps should any severe threats arise. It’s not completely unheard of to see events in June throughout the central and southern Plains, but climo says they’re moving north by then with the jet.
Stay tuned for more information in the coming days.
