Shown above is a forecast chart of 850 millibar dewpoints. In areas of elevated dewpoint values, the atmosphere is considered richer and more supportive for convection in those areas. The American model predicts a nearly constant flow of moisture from the South and into the Plains to allow for more than one shot at a severe weather event across states such as Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and more. The formation of this flow from the Gulf into the Plains may be enhanced by predictions of high pressure formation in the Plains in the medium range forecast time period. My personal expectation on this potential is we should see the beginning of severe weather season in the next 7-10 days. Granted, we have already seen a fairly active start to the severe weather season, but the official season may very well begin in the next 7-10 days if a storm system is able to intercept this ample moisture in the southern Plains.
