EVENT...SATELLITE FEATURES FOR POTENTIAL LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN THIS MORNING
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 1000-1600Z...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...OVER THE LAST HOUR HAVE SEEN A RAPIDLY DEVELOPING
AREA OF CONVECTION EXTENDING FROM W OF MHE NW TO SE OF MBG.  FURTHER TO
THE S ALSO KEEPING AN EYE ON BANDS OF SLOWLY ENHANCING CU ALONG AND E
OF ODX TO ICR AND FURTHER TO THE W NEAR TIF.  THESE AREAS OF ENHANCING
CLOUD TOPS APPEAR TO BE DRIVEN BY INCREASING WAA/ISENTROPIC ASCENT
OVER SYNOPTIC BOUNDARY EXTENDING FROM CNTRL OK NW THROUGH E CO TOWARDS
E WY THAT WAS COUPLING WITH MODEST LARGE SCALE ASCENT FROM SHORTWAVE
TROF ON WV IMAGERY CRESTING RIDGE AXIS OVER PORTIONS OF E MT AND W ND.
AS LLJ SLOWLY VEERS OVER THE NEXT HOUR OR SO, BELIEVE THERE IS POTENTIAL
FOR ADDITIONAL CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT OVER PORTIONS OF CNTRL AND E NE
MOST LIKELY IN THE VIC OF JUST W OF ONL.  ORIENTATION OF LLJ, UPSTREAM
85H THETA E RIDGE AXIS AND INSTABILITY AXIS ON GOES SOUNDER PRODUCTS
TO INITIAL BANDS OF CONVECTION AND DEVELOPING CU SUGGESTS THERE IS
POTENTIAL FOR ANY BANDS OF CONVECTION THAT DO DEVELOP TO UNDERGO PERIODS
OF UPSTREAM REGENERATION THIS MORNING NEAR NOSE OF SLOWLY VEERING 85H
LLJ OVER PORTIONS OF E SD AND CNTRL AND E NE.  NEARLY UNIDIRECTIONAL
PROFILES ON AREA VWPS WERE NEARLY PARALLEL TO ELEVATED BOUNDARY AND THIS
WOULD SUGGEST POTENTIAL FOR TRAINING CONVECTION TO ENHANCE THE POTENTIAL
FOR LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN THREAT.  SATURATION THICKNESS AND 12C AS ROUGH
APPROXIMATION TO EASTERN EXTENT OF CAP WOULD FAVOR THE BEST THREAT OF
ANY POTENTIAL ORGANIZED HEAVY RAINFALL EXTENDING FROM PORTIONS OF E AND
PERHAPS CNTRL NE NW TO CNTRL AND E SD.  TOWARDS THE END OF THIS TIME
PERIOD WOULD EXPECT ANY ORGANIZED CONVECTION TO BEGIN TO WEAKEN WITH
DIURNAL WEAKENING OF LOW LEVEL FLOW.
