SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...THE LATEST GOES 16 IR IMAGERY SHOW
COOLING TOPS IN THE OUTER BANDS OF THE HURRICANE IMPACTING PUERTO RICO
AS THE TRACK OF THE STORM TO THE NORTHWEST CONTINUES. MICROWAVE SATELLITE
SENSORS INDICATE 2.50 INCHES AVAILABLE PRECIPITABLE WATER AND RAIN RATES
PER HOUR OF AN INCH; HOWEVER, THESE ARE ESTIMATES AND HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE
PROBABLE WITHIN MORE INTENSE DOWNPOURS. HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE VERY LIKELY
IN MORE INTENSE BANDS ASSOCIATED WITH HURRICANE MARIA.
.
AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED

IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...DANGEROUS FLOODING RAINS WILL CONTINUE BASED
UPON SATELLITE IMAGERY BECAUSE RADAR AT SAN JUAN APPEARS TO BE NO LONGER
OPERATIONAL. VERY HEAVY RAIN ASSOCIATED WITH THE OUTER BANDS WILL CONTINUE
ACROSS PUERTO RICO AND THE USVI.
