EVENT...UPDATE TO PREVIOUS SPE FOR HEAVY RAIN THREAT
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...CONVECTION HAS GROWN UPSCALE OVER THE
PAST FEW HRS AND DEVELOPED INTO A QLCS ALONG THE FRNTL BNDRY CURRENTLY
ANALYZED FROM NE MN JUST E OF KELO EXTENDING TO THE SW TWRDS ERN SD NEAR
KATY AND FURTHER TO THE SSW THRU C NE. S/SW LLJ HAS INCREASED AHEAD OF
THE FRNTL BNDRY UPWARDS OF 30-40 KTS THRU ERN NE/IA AND NOSING INTO CENT
MN. THE STRONG GNRLY SRLY FLOW HAS ALSO ALLOWED FOR PERSISTENT STRONG
MOISTURE FLUX INTO THE REGION...WITH PWS APPROACHING 1.9" JUST AHEAD
OF THE BNDRY. THIS HAS ALLOWED FOR RAINFALL RATES GNRLY OF 1.0"-2.0"
ACROSS MUCH OF THE FRNTL BNDRY...WITH METARS REPORTING RAINFALL AMNTS
EXCEEDING 2.0"/HR IN W CENT MN.
.
UL DYNAMICAL SUPPORT REMAINS OVER THE REGION ASSCD WITH THE MCS DUE TO
120+ KT JET STREAK OVER S CENT CANADA PROVIDING RIGHT ENTRANCE REGION
JET DYNAMICS. THIS COUPLED WITH NOSE OF LLJ IN IA/MN SHOULD PROVIDE
FOR HVY RAIN THREAT TO CONTINUE ACROSS THE REGION AS QLCS CONTINUES TO
MOVE E. OVER THE NEXT FEW HRS...IMAGINE THAT A PRIMARY AREA FOR HVY
RAIN THREAT WOULD BE ACROSS NERN NE/SERN SD/SW MN...WHICH IS WHERE
OBJ ANALYZED MOISTURE CONVERGENCE IS MAXIMIZED AHEAD OF FRNTL BNDRY
AND NEAR SFC WAVE ANALYZED INVOF KBBW. STORM MOTION VECTORS ARE ALSO
QUITE WEAK IN THE AREA...AND WITH 30 KT SRLY 850 MB WINDS INDICATED
FROM KFSD VWP...SLOW MOVING CELLS AND BRIEF CONVECTIVE REGENERATION IS
POSSIBLE TO FURTHER INCREASE HVY RAIN THREAT. ANOTHER AREA OF CONCERN IS
FURTHER NE THRU E CENT MN EXTENDING INTO NW WI. 850-300 MB MEAN WIND IS
GNRLY STRONGER IN THIS AREA...BUT ANOTHER WEAK SFC WAVE ANALYZED INVOF
KBRD WOULD SUGGEST INCREASED LOW LVL CONVERGENCE TO SUPPORT AN UPTICK
IN RAINFALL RATES. EVEN STILL...WITH PWS THAT ARE MOSTLY AOA 2 STD DEV
ALONG THIS FRNTL BNDRY AND REGIONAL VWPS INDICATING 30-40 KT S/SSW 850
MB FLOW...LOCALIZED ISSUES ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS MUCH OF THE FRNTL BNDRY.
