Note: A severe weather area depicted in the Day 4-8 period indicates 15%, 30% or higher probability for severe thunderstorms within 25 miles of any point.
PREDICTABILITY TOO LOW is used to indicate severe storms may be possible based on some model scenarios. However, the location or occurrence of severe storms are in doubt due to: 1) large differences in the deterministic model solutions, 2) large spread in the ensemble guidance, and/or 3) minimal run-to-run continuity.
POTENTIAL TOO LOW means the threat for a regional area of organized severe storms appears unlikely (i.e., less than 15%) for the forecast day.

   Day 4-8 Convective Outlook  
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0135 AM CST Tue Jan 24 2017

   Valid 271200Z - 011200Z

   Suppressed mid-level heights and unfavorable low-level flow across
   the lower latitudes will impede northward advance of Gulf air mass
   during the medium range period.  In the absence of meaningful
   moisture/instability the severe threat will remain low into early
   next week.
