SPC Day 4-8 Outlook

Don't get me wrong - I'm a huge fan of the SPC.  I'm just wondering why they removed the "extended range" severe outlook areas for later this week.  My understanding of the day 4-8 outlook is that it was designed to alert users to potential "large scale" events.  Model data continues to support widespread strong to severe weather later this week, over a large part of the country, so I'm perplexed as to why the risk areas that were up over the weekend have disappeared in the last 24 hours.  I strongly disagree that, as noted in the last discussion, the "predictability is too low" for the day 4-8 period this week.
