SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...TROPICAL INVEST 99L CONTS ITS WWRD
MARCH TWRD PR AND USVI WITH IMPRESSIVE MOISTURE. LATEST BLENDED TPW ANAL
SHOWS MAX VALUES ARND 2.5" N OF APPARENT CENTER BTWN 18-20N ALONG 60W
WITH APPARENT CENTER NR 15.5N58.5. TROPICAL WAVE HAS HAD QUITE ROBUST
CNVTN ASCD WITH IT ORGANIZED ALG A NNW/SSE AXIS WITH CLD TOP TEMPS OCNLY
PULSING TO -80C. AMSU MICROWAVE RAIN RATES WITH PAST COUPLE OF ORBITS
OVER THE STORM FROM ARND 18Z AND 00Z HAVE SHOWN AREAL AVERAGED RATES AS
HIGH AS 1.25"/HR AT 18Z AND .6"/HR AT 00Z. WHILE THIS ALL POINTS TOWARD
POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAIN THREAT TO PR/USVI MAIN LIMITING FACTOR ATTM SEEMS
TO BE RAPID MVMNT OF CNVTN AND LIMITED LIFETIME OF INDIVIDUAL DEEP CNVTV
CORES. HOWEVER...GIVEN THE AREAL COVERAGE AND THE EXCEPTIONALLY DEEP
MOISTURE OF THE AMS THE HEAVY RAIN/FF THREAT IS QUITE ELEVATED. WHILE
WEAK SHOWERS ARE ALRDY ROTATING INTO USVI AND PR EXPECT DEEPER CNVTN TO
IMPACT THE ISLANDS LATE THIS MRNG AND THROUGHOUT THE DAY. WILL CONT TO
MONITOR AND UPDATE AS THE SYSTEM PROGRESSES.
