Hazardous Weather Outlook for Tuesday, December 22, 2015

by WeatherOps, on Dec 21, 2015 8:25:03 AM

Hazardous thunderstorms are possible on Tuesday across the Southern Plains and along the Gulf Coast. Moderate to heavy mountain snow and light to moderate lower elevation snow is possible across the North Central Rockies.

A risk for severe weather is expected on Tuesday with the potential to cover a large region of the South Central US. Moderate instability coupled with daytime heating looks to produce an environment from Texas to Florida that will promote supercell development with all hazards possible. The highest risk will lie in East Central Texas through Southeastern Oklahoma and into Arkansas where instability will be maximized. Elsewhere, activity along the Gulf Coast will have a much lower risk of becoming severe due to extensive cloud cover and ongoing convective activity which could inhibit the strength of fresh development. Moderate to heavy rainfall will be possible as another 1-2 inches of rain is expected with locally heavier amounts.

The low pressure system that brought snow and heavy rain will move east southeastward, dropping a front through the Central Rockies and Creating another round of snowfall for the intermountain region. Lower elevations could receive 4-7 inches with isolated heavier amounts, while mountains and slopes forecast to receive anywhere from 6 inches to 2 feet, with some mountains potentially seeing heavier amounts still.
