Severe Weather Potential on Thursday & Friday

As we've been forecasting for the past few days, a vigorous area of low pressure over the Southwest U.S. will eject several disturbances out into the Plains over the next 2-3 days.  The first such disturbance will affect portions of the High Plains of west Texas, eastern New Mexico and adjacent portions of Colorado, Oklahoma and Kansas on Thursday afternoon.  The SPC is already forecasting a threat of severe weather for much of the region in association with this first disturbance:

On Friday, an even stronger piece of energy will spread further Northeast, increasing the severe weather threat Friday afternoon and evening in an area from western & central Kansas into Oklahoma and northwest Texas:

The above looks to be just the beginning of a very active weather pattern that appears to be setting up into next week and beyond.  See earlier posts from today, yesterday and Monday for additional information on the pattern that is emerging.
