Day 2 Convective Outlook  
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1125 PM CDT Sun Mar 11 2018

Valid 131200Z - 141200Z


Isolated thunderstorms are expected across portions of the Great
Basin and along the California coast.

...CA Coast/Great Basin...

Significant mid-level height falls are expected to spread inland
across the western US ahead of a strong short-wave trough that will
approach the CA coast late in the period. Large-scale forcing for
ascent will aid mid-level moistening across NV/OR/ID as lapse rates
steepen and convection should develop towards 14/00z as stronger
flow aloft translates into this region. Isolated thunderstorms are
expected across portions of the Great basin into the late evening

Farther west along the northern/central CA coast, profiles are
expected to cool significantly during the day as mid-level
temperatures drop in advance of approaching trough. Forecast
soundings suggest sufficient buoyancy will evolve by late afternoon
for lightning production within the deepest updrafts, primarily near
the coast.
