Regional Severe Weather Outbreak Possible for April 14

The Storm Prediction Center has outlined a 'Day 7' risk for severe weather in Oklahoma and Kansas. Now, before we start, a Day 7 outline is extremely rare. I cannot remember the last time I actually saw a Day 7 outline.

Frontal Positions for Saturday
On Saturday, a warm front looks to be positioned in an arching pattern from Kansas into Minnesota. This will bring up warm, humid air into the region. Again, we see a dry line in western Texas and a cold front soon behind. Judging by moisture transports in the lower levels of the atmosphere and hodograph forecasts, this could be a tornadic situation, especially how the isobars are tightly positioned together in the warm sector (area under the warm front).

This frightens me. I have feared this would happen for over a month. Andrew, all I can say is your svr forecast is scarily correct. They may need a high risk on this one.
