Severe On New Year's Eve?

The GFS model continues to show a monster low in the middle of the country on New Year's Eve. With the low to the NW, we would be on the warm side of the storm system. I would expect temperatures to be somewhere near 70 degrees dependent on cloud cover and thunderstorms.
The above map simply shows instability. I'm not going to get too cutesy on this forecast 7 days out, but I wanted everyone to know that possibility does exist for severe weather on New Year's Eve if this materializes.

Stay tuned!
