EVENT...SAME WRAP AROUND MOISTURE FOR STEADY LIGHT TO MODERATE/OCCLY
HVY RAIN IN ALREADY SATURATED AREA FOR HEIGHTEN FF/FLOOD THREAT...
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...BIG PICTURE WILL CONTINUE TO DRIVE
MOVEMENT OF THIS SLOW MOVING UPPER LEVEL TROUGH/LOW NOW JUST NORTH OF
THE BORDER IN SASKATCHEWAN.  DISTURBANCE ON EASTERN GULF OF ALASKA
HEADING TOWARD BRITISH COLUMBIA AND WEAK DOWNSTREAM EFFECTS TRYING
TO NUDGE TROUGH/LOW AND STEADY RAINFALL EAST..BUT IT WILL BE SLOW.
CONTINUED ROUND ABOUT WRAP AROUND MOISTURE AND ADVECTION IN A TROW-LIKE
FASHION CONTINUES INTO NE MONTANA FROM CANADA AND THE UPPER MS VALLEY.
NOT THE MOST DIRECT ROUTE, BUT STILL GOOD ENOUGH FOR STEADY RAINFALL AND
WITH A SMALL PART OF INTERIOR NE MONTANA HAVING RECEIVED OVER 200 PERCENT
OF NORMAL RAINFALL THE PAST FEW WEEKS, THOSE AREA MOST VULNERABLE AND
THAT CAN BE SEEN WHEN CHECKING   http://water.weather.gov/precip/   .
PHILIPPS AND VALLEY COUNTY APPEARS TO BE GETTING THE BRUNT OF THE STEADY
PRECIP AND WITH PWATS CONTINUING ABOVE NORMAL, BUT NOT OF THE RECORD
BREAKING VARIETY, IT ESSENTIALLY COMES DOWN TO HOW PERSISTENT THESE
BANDS CONTINUE WITH MOST EXPANSION TOWARD DANIEL COUNTY NEXT FEW HRS.
.
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 1500-1800Z...MEDIUM TO HIGH CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...SLOW EROSION OF RAINFALL WEST PART...IE EASTERN
BLAINE AND WESTERN PHILIPPS COUNTY AND EXPANSION TO REST OF NE MONTANA.
FEED OF MOISTURE THOUGH NOT THE MOST DIRECT, STILL ADEQUATE FOR LOCALLY
HIGH AMOUNTS FOR A HEIGHTEN FF/FLOOD THREAT THIS PERIOD AND PRIMARILY
IN VALLEY AND THE REST OF PHILIPPS COUNTY.
