EVENT...HEAVY RAIN THREAT LIKELY TO CONTINUE INTO THIS EVENING
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 1500-2000Z...HIGH CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...INGREDIENTS SEEMS TO BE COMING TOGETHER INDICATING
LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINS CURRENTLY OCCURRING OVER WRN SC MAY PERSIST AND
EXPAND IN COVERAGE NEXT SEVERAL HRS.  SERLY 85H FLOW BTWN 15-20 KTS
IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE AIDING IN STRONG CONVERGENCE ALONG ERN SLOPES
OF ELEVATED TERRAIN FROM SW NC TO NE GA.  A SERIES OF SUBTLE MID LEVEL
IMPULSES ARE RIDING ALONG SRN EDGE OF UL JET FROM AR TO NC AND IS HELPING
TO SUPPORT GRADUAL ENHANCEMENT OF DIVERGENCE ALOFT.  FURTHERMORE...A LOW
LEVEL CYCLONIC CIRCULATION IS LIFTING NNW ACROSS SRN SC AND IS ALREADY
GENERATING HEAVY RAIN BANDS ALONG THE SRN SC COAST.  IF THIS FEATURE
CONTINUES ON THIS CURRENT TRACK IT MAY HELP FEED ADDITIONAL BANDS OF
SHOWERS ACROSS ERN GA/WRN SC OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL HRS.

TOWARDS THE END OF THIS OUTLOOK PERIOD AND LOOKING AHEAD TO THIS
EVENING...A MORE PRONOUNCED AND SHARP SHORWAVE IS NOW SEEN LIFTING
ENE FROM AN EARLIER CONVECTIVE COMPLEX IMPACTING NE TX/SE OK.
THIS WAVE SHOULD FARTHER BACK LLVL FLOW COUPLED WITH STRONGER VERTICAL
MOTIONS...LIKELY FURTHER PROMOTING A MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWER/TSTM COVERAGE
TOWARDS THE 00Z TIME FRAME.  GOES SOUNDER IS ALREADY SHOWING INSTABILITY
INCREASING ACROSS GA AHEAD OF MORE AGGRESSIVE SHORTWAVE...WHICH MAY HELP
INCREASE RAINFALL RATES AS WELL.
.
AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
