EVENT...UPDATE TO PREVIOUS SPE FOR ONGOING HEAVY RAIN EVENT
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...AS STATED IN PREVIOUS FEW MESSAGES,
CONTINUING TO STAGGER SPENES MESSAGES WITH WPC MPD`S FOR THE ONGOING
RAIN EVENT. ALSO AS NOTED IN RECENT MPD...WIDESPREAD CLOUD-TOP WARMING
HAS BEEN NOTED IN MUCH OF THE LATEST IR IMAGERY ESPECIALLY OVER OK/NRN TX
AND INTO THE TX PANHANDLE. RECENT INTENSE CLOUD-TOP COOLING AND CONVECTIVE
DEVELOPMENT IS NOW FOCUSED THRU WRN TX...FROM JUST S OF LBB EWRD TO JUST
N OF DYS. THIS APPEARS TO BE IN RESPONSE TO S/WV IMPULSE SLIDING SEWRD
ACROSS ERN NM AS WELL AS BEST OBJECTIVE ANALYZED MOISTURE CONVERGENCE
NOTED INVOF KBPG/KSNK NEAR FRNTL BNDRY AND JUST S OF SFC WAVE. THE
REMAINING COMPACT AREA OF CONVECTION IS OCCURRING UNDERNEATH H8 THETA-E
RIDGE AXIS AND IS ALSO LOCATED IN THICKNESS DIFFLUENCE REGION...BOTH
SUGGESTING SLOWLY PROPAGATING CONVECTION WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF
BACKBUILDING. LOW LVL INFLOW HAS VEERED AND SLACKENED QUITE A BIT OVER
THE PAST FEW HRS IN WRN TX ESPECIALLY NOTED BY KMAF VWP...BUT H8 WINDS
AT KSJT REMAIN SSW AT 35 KTS TO ALLOW FOR CONTINUED MOISTURE/INSTABILITY
FLUX WITH PWS JUST OVER 2.0" NEAR KDRT. NWS MESONET INDICATES A FEW
LOCATIONS SE OF KLBB OBSERVING 0.5" OVER THE PAST HR...AS WELL AS AN
OBSERVATION JUST OVER 1.0"/HR NEARBY AS WELL. WITH WEAK FLOW THRU THE
CLOUD BEARING LAYER COMBINED WITH ANOMALOUSLY HIGH MOISTURE ENVIRONMENT
AND BETTER INFLOW STILL NOTED NEAR AND JUST N OF KSJT...ANTICIPATE A
LOCALIZED HVY RAIN THREAT TO CONTINUE FOR ANOTHER SEVERAL HRS AS THE
CONVECTION SLOWLY MARCHES W-E.
