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
   0332 AM CDT THU APR 30 2015

   VALID 031200Z - 081200Z

   ...DISCUSSION...
   SPLIT STREAM FLOW AND A GRADUAL EVOLUTION TOWARD A WRN U.S. TROUGH
   WILL BE NOTED DURING THE UPCOMING DAY4-8 TIME PERIOD.  ONE
   POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT LOW-LATITUDE SHORT-WAVE TROUGH WILL EJECT
   ACROSS NRN MEXICO INTO THE SRN HIGH PLAINS TUESDAY AND THIS FEATURE
   COULD INDUCE POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT CONVECTION ACROSS TX/OK AT THAT
   TIME.  BEYOND DAY6...BROAD TROUGHING ACROSS THE WRN U.S. COULD LEAD
   TO EPISODIC CONVECTIVE EVENTS ACROSS THE PLAINS/MS VALLEY REGION. 
   HOWEVER...CONFIDENCE IN SEVERE REMAINS A BIT TOO LOW TO WARRANT AN
   OUTLOOK DURING THE LATTER PARTS OF THE EXTENDED PERIOD.
