EVENT...UPDATE TO PREVIOUS SPE CONCERN HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS ERN NM AND
INTO TX PANHANDLE
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...ENVIRONMENT HAS NOT CHANGED TOO MUCH
SINCE LAST MESSAGE A FEW HOURS AGO.  INSTABILITY AND MOISTURE REMAIN IN
PLACE WITH AROUND 2000 J/KG CAPE AND 1.25"-1.5" PWATS PER GOES SOUNDER.
GOES MESO WINDS INDICATING UPPER DIVERGENCE IN THE AREA WITH LITTLE
STEERING FLOW PER LATEST WIND FIELD ANALYSIS.  VWP SHOWING ESE/SE 850
MD INFLOW CONTINUING TO FEED INSTABILITY INTO ERN NM AND THE WRN TX
PANHANDLE.  GOES SOUNDER IMAGERY SHOWING THE INFLOW INTO THE SYSTEM AS THE
AS THE CAPE IS DROPPING ACROSS CNTRL TX AND SW TX.  THIS RECEDING OF THE
UPSTREAM EDGE OF THE CAPE POOL IS ALSO INDICATING  THE BEST INSTABILITY
WILL BE ENDING AROUND MID MORNING.  WHILE THERE IS STILL UPSTREAM CAPE TO
PULL FROM...EXPECTING ANOTHER SEVERAL HOURS OF LOCALIZED FLOODING ACROSS
ERN NM AND INTO THE WRN TX PANHANDLE FROM SLOW MOVING MOD/HVY CONVECTION.
WOULD EXPECT THE INSTABILITY TO BE GRADUALLY USED UP DURING THIS TIME AND
SHOULD BE LARGELY EXHAUSTED AROUND MID MORNING OR SHORTLY THERE AFTER
WHICH SHOULD LESSEN THE FLASH FLOODING CONCERNS AFTER THIS HAPPENS.
SEE RECENT MPD #0397 WHICH ALSO DESCRIBES THIS THREAT THROUGH 1130Z.
