SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...AN AXIS OF CONVECTION ORIENTED N-S HAS
DEVELOPED AHEAD OF S/WV FEATURE MOVING THRU ERN CO INTO WRN KS. PERSISTENT
SRLY/SERLY LOW LVL FLOW HAS ALLOWED PW VALUES UPWARDS OF 1.25" AND
CAPE VALUES TO REACH GNRLY 2000-3000 J/KG IN THE TX/OK PANHANDLES AND
WRN KS PER LATEST GOES SOUNDER DATA. LOW LVL INFLOW IS 20-30 KTS IN TX
PANHANDLE AND 30-40 KTS IN WRN KS PER REGIONAL VWPS. 85H-30H HPA MEAN
FLOW IS RATHER WEAK BTWN 20-30 KTS IN THIS AXIS OF CONVECTION...AND WITH
LOW LVL INFLOW MOSTLY MATCHING THAT IF NOT EXCEEDING IT...BACKBUILDING
APPEARS AS A CONTINUED POSSIBILITY THROUGHOUT THIS AXIS OF CONVECTION.
.
AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 2340Z-0240Z...MEDIUM HIGH CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...ANTICIPATE CONVECTION TO CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND
SLOWLY PROPAGATE GNRLY EWRD UNDER WEAK MEAN FLOW REGIME. THE HVY RAIN
THREAT IS ENHANCED BY BOTH THE SLOW-MOVING NATURE OF THE CONVECTION...AND
THE CONTINUED POSSIBILITY OF BACKBUILDING AS BOTH THE LOW LVL INFLOW IS
SIMILAR/STRONGER THAN THE MEAN FLOW AND IS FAVORABLY JUXTAPOSED TO THE
GREATER MOISTURE/INSTABILITY AXIS ACROSS CENT/NERN TX. WILL ALSO NEED TO
MONITOR IN CASE THE BROKEN LINE OF CONVECTION CAN BECOME BETTER ORGANIZED
AND DEVELOP INTO A MCS FEATURE THAT COULD LAST FURTHER INTO THE EVENING.
