Forecaster Confidence Possible


From a severe weather standpoint this forecast has a lot of challenges. Moisture return after the system that exited last night will not be super, with only a few locations forecast to have dew points above 50 degrees at any time tomorrow. When the dryline sets up, it's only for a few hours and it takes on a positive tilt (the southern end is east of the northern end). This tends to make our storm mode more elevated, or high-based. That limits threats to hail and wind -- and even at that, I think the wind threat comes as storms collapse, if at all.
