Day 2 Convective Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1131 PM CST Wed Jan 06 2021

Valid 081200Z - 091200Z


There is little chance of thunderstorms over the continental United
States on Friday.

An upper trough will be situated over the Southeast on Friday, and
will move off the coast late in the day. At the surface, low
pressure will already be off the SC/NC coast Friday morning, and
will deepen as it continues northeastward. Although high pressure
will maintain a stable boundary layer over the region, moisture
wrapping around the low may result in sufficient elevated
instability for isolated lightning flashes mainly over NC. However,
there will be little risk of appreciable thunderstorm activity.

Elsewhere, an upper jet will nose southeastward from northern CA
into the Great Basin during the day, with height rises along the
West Coast and a cessation to any early day convective activity over
western OR. An isolated lightning flash cannot be ruled out during
the afternoon over northern NV along a cold front and north of the
midlevel jet, but the air mass will remain very dry.
