SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 2100-0000Z...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...VIS IMAGERY HAS SHOWN SEVERAL CLUSTERS/NEW
CELLS DEVELOPING ALONG A AXIS FROM N GA ENE THROUGH CENTRAL/COASTAL NC
AND OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS PLACES DECENT INSTABILITY (CAPES AS HIGH AS 2000
J/KG AND LIS AS HIGH AS -6C).  WITH BLENDED TPW PRODUCT SUGGESTING PWATS
POOLING TO JUST OVER 2.0" WOULD EXPECT SOME OF THE DEEPEST CORES/CELL
MERGERS TO PRODUCE 1-2"/HR RATES. MESONET AND SFC OBS  HAVE ALSO INDICATED
A FEW 1-1.5" HOURLY RATES SO WOULD EXPECT A THREAT FOR HEAVY RAINS TO
LAST NEXT FEW HOURS FOR E NC WHERE CONVECTION HAS BEEN TRAINING. WITH
3 HR FFG INVOF E NC IN THE 2-3" RANGE THERE IS A MODEST THREAT OF FF
ISSUES, ESPECIALLY IN AREAS OF CELL TRAINING/MERGER.

AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
