.
EVENT...GENERAL CLOUD TOP WARMING NORTHEAST NEW MEXICO THROUGH THE
N TX PANHANDLE AND ACROSS EXT SW TEXAS AND S CENTRAL TO CENTRAL NEW
MEXICO...BUT ISOLATED COOLER CLOUD TOPS CAN GIVE LOCALLY HVY RAINS
THIS MORNING...
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...SATELLITE IR DEPICTION CERTAINLY SHOWED
GENERAL DECREASING AREAL AND INTENSITY RAIN TRENDS...BUT STILL A FEW
POCKETS OF LOCALLY HVY RAINS WITH EITHER SPOTTY CLOUD TOPS COOLING
OR OVERSHOOTING CLOUDS/COOL CLOUDS HANGING ON IN EMBEDDED COMPLEXES.
MOST NOTICEABLE EXT SW TEXAS INTO S CENTRAL NM WAS AREA ACROSS EL PASO AND
HUDSPETH COUNTY AND EXTENDING INTO WESTERN OTERO AND DONA ANA COUNTY IN
NM. AND EVEN THOUGH CLOUD TOPS WERE GENERALLY WARMING REST OF S CENTRAL
NM, THERE CAN BE ENOUGH LIFT FOR A SMALL AREA/ISOLATED ACTIVITY CENTERED
FROM N DONA ANA THROUGH SIERRA TO SOCORRO COUNTY.
TO THE NORTH AND NE...AGAIN GENERAL CLOUD TOP WARMING...BUT ISOLATED
COOLER CLOUD TOPS HANGING ON GUADALUPE AND QUAY COUNTY WHERE GPS PWAT IN
THE 1.3"-1.65" RANGE AND EVEN WITH WARMING CLOUDS, THERE CAN BE A LAG
IN THE RAINFALL DECREASING, SO THAT RATES AS HIGH AS 1.5"/HR CAN STILL
BE OCCURRING.   CLUSTERS EXTEND ACROSS MOSTLY THE NORTHERN TX PANHANDLE
AND SPREADING INTO THE EASTERN OK PANHANDLE AND DEEP MOISTURE POOLED
IN THAT AREA AND CLOSE TO 850MB THETA-E MAX, THERE CAN BE VERY SMALL
AND ISOLATED HEAVY RATES ALONG BOUNDARY THAT CONNECTS S KS COMPLEX WITH
WEAKENING NE NEW MEXICO FIZZLING OUT COMPLEX.
.
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 1345-1645Z...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...GENERAL CLOUD TOP WARMING WOULD INDICATE
NOT REAL LARGE FOCUS OF HVY RAIN THIS PERIOD...JUST ISOLATED SPOT
WHERE ENOUGH MOISTURE AND LIFT KEEPING CLOUDS ENHANCED...IE EL PASO
COUNTY TX AND DONA ANA INTO OTERO COUNTY NI S CENTRAL NM.  AND OVER
IN NORTHEAST NM IN VIC OF QUAY TO SAN MIGUEL TO HARDING COUNTY.
ALSO KEEPING AN UPTICK ON SOME CLUSTER DEVELOPMENT IN THE N CENTRALTO
NE TX PANHANDLE/EASTERN OK PANHANDLE FOR SMALL AREA LOCALLY HVY
RAINS ALONG DEEP MOISTURE AXIS AS PER 700-500MB PW LAYER FROM LATEST
