Today has some severe weather breaking out on the central and southern Plains but it’s once the upper low swings through the Four Corners and Gulf moisture and heat is taped, that we’ll see more ingredients come together.

Here’s today and tonight’s threat area according to AccuWeather.

Here’s the area of slight risk according to the SPC. Tonight won’t be significant but tomorrow may be as more ingredients including greater surface convergence and thermal contrast comes together over the Mississippi and Tennessee Valley.

As you would expect, the severe risk slides east Friday as does the system. Plenty of heat and juicy air out ahead of the front with 80s throughout the Southeast.

The trouble I think kicks in by 24 hrs as the upper low swings across the Rockies, pulling air out of the Gulf with 60 and even 70 degree dew points.
