EVENT...LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINS ALONG WITH REPEAT CELL TRAINING
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...AREA OF SHOWERS/TSTMS CONTINUE TO INCREASE
AHEAD OF PROGRESSIVE TROF/COLD FRONT AS NOTED BY HEIGHT FALLS IN WATER
VAPOR ACROSS THE MID SECTION OF THE COUNTY.  LATEST 04Z MESOANALYSIS
DEPICTS AREA OF SFC LOW PRESSURE TRACKING EWD ACROSS ERN AR...NEARING
NWRN MS...WITH A NW TO SSE BOUNDARY EXTENDING ACROSS MS INTO WRN AL.
A REGION OF LLVL MOISTURE ADVECTION WAS NOTED FROM 00Z RAOBS EXTENDING
ACROSS AR/NRN MS/NRN AL/SWRN TN.  PW VALUES ACROSS THIS REGION ARE RATHER
MARGINAL...BTWN 0.6-0.8"...HOWEVER CLOUD BEARING FLOW AT MID LEVELS IS
NEARLY UNIFORM FROM W TO E.
.
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...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR...NOT ANTICIPATING A
WIDESPREAD/LONG DURATION EVENT DUE IN LARGE PART TO PROGRESSIVE TROF/CD
FRNT AND MARGINAL AVAILABLE MOISTURE.  INSTEAD MORE LOCALIZED WITH 2-4 HR
POTENTIAL FOR CELL TRAINING WITHIN W TO E FLOW REGIME.  ACTIVITY SHOULD
CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND ENHANCE OVER THE NEXT FEW HRS AS ACTIVITY BEGINS
TO TRACK ACROSS NOSE OF WSW/SWRLY 85H JET (55-60 KTS)...ATTM SITUATED
ACROSS E-CENTRAL MS TO N-CENTRAL AL PER VWPS.  GREATEST THREAT FOR
LOCALIZED HVY RAINFALL OVER THE NEXT FEW HRS APPEARS TO BE ACROSS EXT
S-CENTRAL TN AND NRN AL.
