SATELLITE PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES..DATE/TIME 10/23/14 1106Z
SATELLITE ANALYSIS BRANCH/NESDIS---NPPU---TEL.301-683-1404

.
EVENT...MAIN PART OF MOISTURE PLUME AIMED AT MAINE...BUT ADDITIONAL SHORT
WAVE ENERGY HAS EXPANDED WESTERN EDGE OF MOISTURE INTO MASSACHUSETTS
AND S NH FOR HVY RAIN BURSTS THERE...
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...PIN-WHEELING BAND NOW ORIENTED EAST TO
WEST CENTERED
EXT NORTHEAST  MASSACHUSETTS/SE NH WEST ACROSS C AND NORTHERN MA...S
NH AND BACK INTO WESTERN MA.  SHORT WAVE ASSOCIATE WITH PIN-WHEELING
BAND HAS INCREASED ITS MOISTURE OUT AHEAD BY HELPING TO EXPAND WEST
THE WESTERN EDGE OF THE MOISTURE PLUME (OFFSHORE) BACK TOWARD THE MA
COAST AND SPECIFICALLY NE MA AND SE NH COASTS AND INLAND.  THIS ALSO HAS
ALLOWED WAVES OF COOLER CLOUD TOPS ALONG THE BAND TO PRODUCE HVY RAIN
BURSTS RESULTING IN 0.2"-0.8"/HR RATES AND POSSIBLY ISOLATED 1"/HR RATES
MAINLY NE MA/EXT SE NH AREAS.   BAND MOVING VERY SLOWLY AND ALLOWING AT
LEAST A COUPLE OF HVY RAIN BURST SURGES TO FOCUS NOW IN THE NE MA/EXT
SE NM AREA AND EXTEND BACK INTO WESTERN MA.    CURRENT LIGHTNING PLOT ON
GOES IR SHOWING BEST CONCENTRATION OF STROKES WELL OFFSHORE, SO ASSUMING
EXTREMELY HVY RAIN BURSTS NOW MORE OUT OVER THE OCEAN...BUT THERE STILL
COULD CONTINUE TO BE RAIN RATES OF 0.2"-0.5"/HR ISOLATED 0.75"/HR WITH
SURGES OF COOLER CLOUD TOPS ROTATING THRU THE BAND AS IT CONTINUES TO
SLOWLY DRIFT NORTH FURTHER INTO SOUTHERN NH AND TOWARD SW MAINE.
.
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 1045-1500Z...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...BIT OF A BREAK IN THE SURGES OF COOLER CLOUD
TOPS WITH THIS IMMEDIATE BAND AND THAT CENTERED 43N/68.5W AND SEPARATING
MODERATE TO OCCASIONAL HVY RAINS FROM LIGHTNING EMBEDDED VERY HVY RAINS
WELL OFFSHORE EASTERN MA THAT MAY TAKE A RUN AT SW MAINE LATER THIS
MORNING. UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK SLOWLY ENE...DEFORMATION
OVER INTERIOR EASTERN MA...NH AND EVENTUALLY SW MAINE CAN ONLY HELP BE
A CONTRIBUTOR TO KEEPING ENHANCED RAINFALL BAND GOING ALONG WITH THE
EXPANSION OF THE MOISTURE PLUME`S WESTERN EDGE INTO THE NH/MAINE COAST
AND JUST INLAND.
