OVER THE PAST HR THE NEXT IN A SERIES OF SHORTWAVES ALONG BAROCLINIC
ZONE HAS YIELDED AN EXPANSIVE ENHANCED CLOUD TOP SHIELD TRACKING EWD
ACROSS WRN/CENTRAL PA.  THIS AREA OF ENHANCED CLOUDS AND ASSOCIATED
PRECIPITATION IS LIKELY BEING FURTHER ENHANCED/AIDED BY HEIGHT FALLS
NOTED IN WATER VAPOR LOOP OCCURRING UPSTREAM ACROSS NRN PLAINS AND WRN
GREAT LAKES.  W-E BANDS MAY DEVELOP WITHIN ISENTROPIC REGIME ACROSS THE
SRN TWO-THIRDS OF PA AND EXTENDING EWD INTO CENTRAL NJ OVER THE NEXT
SEVERAL HRS.  LATEST BLENDED TPW ANOMALY PRODUCT SUGGESTS PW VALUES HAVE
CLIMBED TO NEAR 175 PERCENT ABOVE CLIMO...WHICH COUPLED WITH SYNOPTIC
