SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...LATEST WATER VAPOR IMAGERY DEPICTS SHEAR
AXIS EXTENDING N INTO THE CHANNEL ISLANDS OF CA FROM A UPPER LVL LOW
OFF THE SW COAST OF BAJA PROVIDING WEAK LARGE SCALE LIFT IN THE REGION.
RECENT VIS IMAGERY SHOWS OUTFLOW BOUNDARY ASSOCIATED WITH MCS ALONG
THE AZ AND CA BORDER IS MOVING WEST AND HELPING TO TRIGGER ADDITIONAL
CONVECTION THAT COULD POSSIBLY MERGE WITH CONVECTION ALONG THE S CA
HIGHER TERRAIN. GOES SOUNDER INDICATES A WEAKENING CAP AND SOME LEFT
OVER INSTABILITY THAT HAS NOT BEEN USED BY THE CONVECTION ON THE HIGHER
TERRAIN. MOISTURE CONVERGENCE IS SEEN DOWNSTREAM OF MCS PER OBJECTIVE
SURFACE ANALYSIS AND GIVEN THE DEEP LAYER MOISTURE AVAILABLE PER CIRA
EXPERIMENTAL LAYERED PW PRODUCT WITH PWS RANGING FROM 1.6"-2.0" EXPECT
EFFICIENT RAINFALL PROCESSES WITH RAIN RATES IN EXCESS OF 1"/HR WITH
HIGHER RATES WHERE MERGERS OCCUR.
