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
   0311 AM CDT Mon Aug 23 2021

   Valid 261200Z - 311200Z

   ...DISCUSSION...
   Medium-range models remain in reasonable large-scale agreement
   through early stages of the period, in depicting eastward
   progression of a western U.S. trough into the north-central U.S. 
   The advance of the trough will likely be accompanied by at least
   some severe potential -- over the northern Plains vicinity Day 4
   (Thursday Aug. 26) and then eastward into the Upper Midwest vicinity
   Day 5 (Friday Aug. 27).  However, differences in the models at
   smaller scales, and rounds of intervening convection from prior
   days, complicate the scenario, resulting in decreased confidence
   with respect to highlighting areas of greatest risk.  Beyond Day 5,
   increasing differences in the models -- even at larger scales,
   suggest a further decrease in predictability with time.  Therefore,
   will not highlight any risk areas at this time.
