Storm Prediction Center Keeps Arkansas, Missouri in Severe Threat 4 days out

note: D5 (day 5)= 4 days out because Day 1 is actually today, Day 2 is tomorrow, etc.

The SPC (Storm Prediction Center) has kept Arkansas and Missouri in the severe weather threat for 4 days out and basically flattened out the severe weather threat a day before as mentioned in yesterday's post, which can be viewed here.
It looks like a strong low pressure system (figure 1) will be present in Oklahoma November 8th. Ahead of it will be a warm sector of warm temperatures. When this cooler air hits the warmer temperatures, some severe storms, added with a strong jet stream (figure 2), may create some tornadic action in the Southern US.
