EVENT...LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINFALL ASSOCIATED WITH TRAINING ELEVATED
CONVECTIVE CELLS
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 0830-1230Z...MEDIUM-HIGH CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...OVERALL HEAVY RAIN THREAT DURING THE EARLY
MORNING HOURS ACROSS THE CENTRAL PLAINS SHOULD BE RELATIVELY LOCALIZED.
CONVECTIVE CELLS DEVELOPING ALONG NW TO SE ORIENTED THETA-E AXIS...EAST
OF UL RIDGE AXIS...ARE GRADUALLY SHOWING SIGNS OF CONCEALING INTO A
LINEAR BAND FEATURE.  PWS HAVE INCREASED TO AROUND 1.5" PER LATEST GOES
SOUNDER AS SSWRLY 30-40 KT LLJ VEERS AND ENHANCES ISENTROPIC LIFT ACROSS
THE REGION.  SEEMINGLY ONLY MODEST MID-LVL ENERGY TRACKING EWD ACROSS
NE/SD NOT ANTICIPATING A WELL ORGANIZED EVENT...BUT WITH JET STREAK ALOFT
CONVECTION SHOULD CONTINUE TO EXPAND IN COVERAGE ACROSS WRN TO SRN IA.
CELL TRAINING IS POSSIBLE ALONG MOISTURE/INSTABILITY AXIS WITH NOSE OF
LLJ EXPECTED TO BECOME MORE SWRLY WITH TIME.  CURRENT THINKING IS BEST
AREA FOR LOCALIZED TRAINING TO OCCUR NEXT SEVERAL HRS IS FROM SUX TO EOK.
.
AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
