EVENT...UPDATE TO PREVIOUS MESSAGE CONCERNING HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS
IA/NRN MO
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...HIGH CONFIDENCE FACTOR IN SHORT TERM
OUTLOOK...VIGOROUS CONVECTION CONTINUES TO DEVELOP INTO STALLED MCS
OVER SRN IA/NW MO/FAR SE NE ALONG A FRONT DRAPED ACROSS THE REGION.
LWIR IMAGERY SHOWING UPSTREAM CU DEVELOPMENT ACROSS SE NE TO THE KS/NE
BORDER FEEDING INTO THE COMPLEX.  SOUNDS DATA SHOWING THE NIGHTTIME
CAP IS RETURNING...HOWEVER PW VALUES AND LI HAVE CREPT SE ALONG THE
FRONT TO NEAR 2.0" AND -5C RESPECTIVELY WITH CAPE VALUES REMAINING
2500-3000 J/KG THROUGH CENTRAL KS.  03Z SFC ANALYSIS SHOWING THE BEST
MOISTURE CONVERGENCE IS SITUATED ACROSS NW MO INTO CNTRL KS... JUST SE
OF THE CURRENT CONVECTION.  850 INFLOW HAS VEERED TO THE WSW THE PAST FEW
HOURS...HOWEVER THE 925MB HAS REMAINED MORE SW AND SFC FLOW REMAINS SRLY.
GIVIN THE CURRENT SETUP...CONCERN IS HIGH FOR CONTINUED HEAVY RAINFALL
ACROSS SRN IA AND NRN MO WITH FAR SE NE AND NE KS GETTING INTO THE ACTION
OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS AS THE MCS GRADUALLY BACK-BUILDS TO THE SSW
OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS.  THERE IS SOME SIGNS OF EWD PROGRESSION
INT HE LAST 30-60 MIN OF IMAGERY WHICH COULD HELP TO REDUCE THE RAINFALL
THREAT A LITTLE OVER TIME...HOWEVER THE PARALLEL ORIENTATION OF THE MCS
TO THE FRONT AND UPSTREAM CU DEVELOPMENT WITHIN FAVORABLE MOISTURE AND
INSTABILITY IS MORE OF A CONCERN THAT A HIGH THREAT FOR HEAVY RAINFALL
REMAINS.
