.
EVENT...UPPER LEVEL DIFFLUENCE AND ENTRAINED HIGH MOISTURE FOR THE TIME OF
YEAR FOR HVY RAIN N CENTRAL/NE WASHINGTON ACROSS N IDAHO INTO MONTANA...
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...MAIN UPPER LEVEL LOW SWINGING NNW TOWARD
THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA.  HIGH DIFFLUENT FLOW OUT AHEAD TO THE EAST WITH
EMBEDDED SHORT WAVE LIFTING NORTH ACROSS N CENTRAL WA AND ADDITIONAL
SHORT WAVE ENERGY NORTHEAST ACROSS SE WA INTO N IDAHO.  MAX 1-1.1"
PWAT OVER THE WA-N ID-WESTERN MONTANA AREA  AND NEAR THE HIGHEST
VALUE FOR SO EARLY IN THE SEASON AS PER GEG RAOB PW CLIMATOLOGY.
SLOW MOVEMENT A PROBLEM WITH CELLS N CENTRAL WA CENTERED OKANOGAN
THROUGH FERRY COUNTY AND SOME WEAK TRAINING OF COOL CLOUD TOP CELLS FROM
INTERIOR N CENTRAL IDAHO INTO NE WA VIC OF KOONTENAI/S BONNER COUNTY,
ID TO STEVENS COUNTY WA.  HRLY RATES CAN REACH 1.0"-1.2"/HR AND ANY
TRAINING OF MULTIPLE CELLS OVER THE AREA CAN GIVE UP TO 2" IN A FEW HRS.
WEAK MOISTURE TRANSPORT HELPING THE AREA ALONG WITH DEPTH OF MOISTURE
FROM 850MB TO 400MB AS DEPICTED BY EXPERIMENTAL LAYERED PW PRODUCT AT:
http://cat.cira.colostate.edu/sport/layered/blended/lpw.htm  ALSO FROM
LAYERED PW YOU CAN SEE TOWARD END OF THE LOOP AT THE 700-500MB LAYER
(BOTTOM LEFT PANEL) AN ADDITIONAL BAND OF MOISTURE FUSING INTO FIRST/LEAD
BAND/BOUNDARY.
.
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 0500-0800Z...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...RAINFALL BAND CONTINUING TO FILL IN NE WA THRU
NORTHERN IDAHO THIS PERIOD WITH SOME TRAINING CELLS THAT WILL CONTINUE
TO FOCUS MAX RAINFALL BENEWAH/
SHOSHONE COUNTY IDAHO TO BONNER/KOOTENAI TO STEVENS COUNTY.  WITH A
LITTLE BIT MORE MOVEMENT THE FURTHER SOUTH IN N IDAHO...HVY RAIN CAN
EXTEND INTO MINERAL AND SANDERS COUNTY OF WESTERN MONTANA.  EVEN QUICKER
CELL FURTHER SOUTH ACROSS IDAHO COUNTY WILL GO INTO RAVALLI COUNTY,
MT FOR A QUICK BURST OF HVY RAIN THERE NEXT HR OR SO.
