EVENT...UPPER LEVEL LOW BEGINNING TO MOVE A BIT QUICKER ACROSS SW
COLORADO...SHORT WAVES OUT AHEAD ALONG WITH MOIST INTERACTION FOR
INCREASED SNOWS CENTERED CENTRAL NEBRASKA/ WESTERN KANSAS AND FROM NE
NM TO TX-OK PANHANDLES..
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...UPPER LEVEL LOW BEGINNING TO MOVE A
LITTLE QUICKER ACROSS SW COLORADO AS PER LATEST WATER VAPOR LOOP IN
RESPONSE TO JET CROSSING W AND C MEXICO...
DARK AREA ON WATER VAPOR SPREADING INTO N BAJA AND RIDGE AXIS IN
THE PACIFIC SHIFTING SLOWLY EAST TOWARD THE BRITISH COLUMBIA COAST.
OUT AHEAD OF UPPER LEVEL LOW WAS N NM VORT/SHORT WAVE MOVING ACROSS N
CENTRAL NM..SHORT WAVE TROUGH OUT AHEAD OF THIS FROM E COLORADO TO NE NM.
UPPER LEVEL LOW COLORADO TO BEGIN TO LIFT NORTHEAST AS FASTEST WINDS NOW
ON THE EAST SIDE FROM NW TEXAS TO IOWA AS PER LATEST SATELLITE DERIVED
HIGH LEVEL WINDS.    TWO MOIST PLUMES ANALYSED WITH ONE PLUME OF MOSTLY
MIDDLE LEVEL MOISTURE CENTERED FROM SW TEXAS/E NM TO CENTRAL NEBRASKA
AND SEPARATE NARROW LOW LEVEL MOISTURE PLUME FROM S TX TO EASTERN
OK/KS/NEBRASKA WITH BEST INCRD MOISTURE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE TWO
BEGINNING TO CENTER ON CENTRAL NEBRASKA.  THIS WILL TEND TO POINT TOWARD
THE BEST SNOWFALL NEXT FEW HRS CENTERED IN CENTRAL NEBRASKA AS BOTH UPPER
LEVEL LOW...VORT COMMA IN N NM AND SHORT WAVE TROUGH OUT AHEAD LIFT
NORTHEAST TOWARD THE CENTRAL PLAINS.  MOIST CONVEYOR BELT INTERACTING
WITH COLDER AIR AND ALSO ADDITIONAL MID LEVEL MEXICAN ORIGIN MOISTURE
AGAIN POINT TO DEEPENING MOISTURE CENTERED OVER CENTRAL TO EASTERN
NEBRASKA AT THE TIME JET...SHORT WAVE FORCING A BIT OF DEFORMATION WILL
HELP INCREASE SNOW OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS AND THEN SPREAD NORTHEAST.
.
AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 1845-2145ZZ...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...VORT AND SHORT WAVE COMING OUT EAST AND NORTHEAST
AHEAD OF UPPER LEVEL SW COLORADO LOW FOR MOSTLY LIGHT SNOW/OCCL MODERATE
ACROSS MOSTLY THE NORTHERN TX PANHANDLE...OK PANHANDLE...WESTERN KS
MOVING CLOSER TO CENTRAL KS.  INCRD ACTIVITY IN CENTRAL NEBRASKA TOWARD
END OF PERIOD AND AFTERWARDS AND TO THE EAST AS DEEPENING MOISTURE AND
ADVECTION..SHORT WAVE AND JET LIFT HELPING INCR THE SNOW...POSSIBLY TO
THE ONE-HALF TO 1 INCH PER HR RATE.
