EVENT...LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN THREAT THIS MORNING/AFTERNOON FOR WA/NRN OR
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...WV IMAGERY SHOWING ELONGATED UPPR LVL
LOW SITTING JUST OFF THE PAC NW COAST WITH SEVERAL IMPULSES MOVING EAST
AND ANOTHER MORE SIGNIFICANT PIECE OF ENERGY MOVING NNE INTO NRN CA.
GOES SOUNDER/GPS DATA SHOWING PW VALUES ACROSS THE AREA RANGE FROM
.9"-1.3".  SOUNDER SHOWING A SMALL AREA OF 725-1000 J/KG CAPE FROM N
CNTRL OR INTO CNTRL WA ALONG THE ERN EDGE OF THE CASCADES.
.
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 1100-1600Z...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR IN SHORT
TERM OUTLOOK...CURRENT THINKING IS THAT THERE WILL BE 2 AREAS OF THE
HEAVIEST RAINS...ONE ALONG THE OR/WA COAST AND ANOTHER ALONG THE CASCADES.
WITH THE RAIN ALREADY FORMING ALONG THE COAST AS THE VORT MAX MOVES INTO
NRN CA...WOULD EXPECT THIS TO BE THE MORE IMMEDIATE THREAT AND THEN THE
CASCADES GETTING CONVECTION DEVELOPING MID TO LATE  MORNING/AFTERNOON AS
THE VORT MOVES INTO OR AND THE FRONT PUSHES INTO THE COAST.  WITH THE
MOISTURE IN PLACE WOULD EXPECT HEAVY DOWNPOURS TO BE A PROBLEM FOR
LOCALIZED AREAS..ESPECIALLY IN THE CASCADES WHERE THE RAINS SHOULD BE
MORE CONVECTIVE IN NATURE.
