SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...LARGE SCALE PATTERN SHOWS ANOMALOUS
UPPER LOW OFF THE S CA COAST WHILE UPSTREAM A STRONG JET STREAK WAS
AMPLIFYING OFFSHORE THE PAC NW WITH SIGNIFICANT HEIGHT FALLS NOTED ON 0Z
UA ANALYSIS EXTENDING INLAND INTO THE PAC NW.  WV IMAGERY SUGGEST THAT
KICKER SYSTEM HAS BEGUN TO ERODE THE NW PERIPHERY OF DEFORMATION AXIS OF
DOWNSTREAM SYSTEM AND THIS SHOULD ALLOW FOR THE RAPID EJECTION OF UPPER
LOW THROUGHOUT THE OVERNIGHT AND MORNING HOURS.  OVER THE LAST SEVERAL
HOURS, HAVE NOTED THE CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OF DOWNSTREAM SHORTWAVE RIDGE
INTO PORTIONS OF N UT WITH BAROCLINIC LEAF SIGNATURE SUGGESTING SURFACE
WAVE OVER PORTIONS OF  W CNTRL AZ WITH SURFACE OBSERVATIONS INDICATING
THIS TO BE JUST E OF IGM.  BEST INFLECTION NOTED ON WV IMAGERY WOULD
ALSO IMPLY THAT MAXIMUM MID LEVEL FORCING WAS CENTERED OVER PORTIONS OF
S CA/S NV/NW AZ.
.
BELIEVE HEAVY PRECIPITATION WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE THROUGH THE
OVERNIGHT AND INTO THE MORNING HOURS AS W PERIPHERY OF ANOMALOUS MOISTURE
OBSERVED ON BLENDED PW ANALYSIS AND POLAR RH PRODUCT, WITH SOURCE REGIONS
IN THE SUBTROPICAL E PAC, CONTINUES TO LIFT NE AND BEGINS TO INTERACT WITH
INCREASING FRONTOGENETIC ENVIRONMENT.  0Z SOUNDINGS DID SHOW SOME MID
LEVEL CONDITIONAL INSTABILITY IN PLACE AND WITH THE MID LEVELS FURTHER
COOLING OVERNIGHT AHEAD OF EJECTING SYSTEM THIS SHOULD HELP TO STEEPEN
LAPSE RATES AND ENHANCE THE RESPONSE TO MID LEVEL FORCING FOR ASCENT.
HIGHLY ANOMALOUS S/SW LOW LEVEL WIND FIELDS AND MOISTURE FLUX SHOULD
HELP TO ENHANCE PRECIPITATION TOTALS ON FAVORED S/SW FACING TERRAIN OF
THE S WASATCH/W MOGOLLON RIM AND THIS SHOULD SPREAD DOWNSTREAM INTO THE
MORNING HOURS AS SYSTEM BEGINS TO EJECT.
