Severe Thunderstorms Outlook

Location Details

Map Controls

This nowCOAST time-enabled map service provides maps of the latest NOAA/NWS Outlooks for Severe Thunderstorms (Convective Outlooks) and Critical Fire Weather for both Dry and Non-Dry Thunderstorms. These outlooks are issued by the NOAA/NWS/NCEP Storm Prediction Center (SPC) in Norman, Oklahoma. The colors used on the maps to indicate the locations and risk level of severe thunderstorms and critical fire weather conditions are the same as (or very close to) those used on SPC’s outlook maps. To ensure the latest information is displayed, the maps of these outlooks are updated in this nowCOAST map service every half hour, but the underlying outlooks produced by SPC are usually issued only at 0100, 0600, 1300, 1630, 1730, and 2000 UTC However, amendments or more frequent updates will be issued as necessary.
