NESDIS IS CONTINUING TO ACCEPT APPEALS ON THE RETIREMENT OF THE SPENES
PRODUCT.  APPEALS CAN BE SUBMITTED BY EMAILING JOHN.SIMKO@NOAA.GOV

EVENT...UPDATE TO PREVIOUS SPE FOR HVY RAIN THREAT
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...LATEST RADAR MOSAIC/IR IMAGERY SHOWS MCS
REMAINS ALONG AND JUST AHEAD OF FRNTL BNDRY THAT HAS MOVED SLIGHTLY EWRD
ACROSS THE NRN PLAINS OVER THE PAST FEW HRS. ALTHOUGH CLOUD-TOPS HAVE
BEEN WARMING ACROSS MUCH OF WI...IMPRESSIVE COLD CLOUD-TOPS REACHING
-70C TO -80C ARE SEEN BACK ACROSS SRN MN INTO NWRN IA AND EXTREME SERN
SD. CONVECTION ON RADAR SEEMS TO BECOMING SLIGHTLY TATTERED THRU WRN
IA...WHILE REMAINING RELATIVELY STRONG AND INTACT FURTHER NE IN SERN MN
INTO NWRN WI. EVEN STILL...PERSISTENT SWRLY LLJ UP TO 50 KTS INDICATED
IN ERN NE AT KOAX VWP HAS CONTINUED TO ALLOW FOR PWS TO CONTINUALLY
RISE THRU THE EVENING...NOTED BY PWS UP TO 1.5" IN WRN WI AND IA AND PWS
OF 2.0"-2.2" IN NWRN IA/SWRN MN. THIS WILL CONTINUE TO ALLOW FOR QUITE
EFFICIENT RAINFALL PROCESSES TO OCCUR WITHIN CONVECTION.
.
EXPECT CONVECTION TO CONTINUE OVER NEXT FEW HRS WITH MUCAPES OF 1000-2000
J/KG REMAINS OVER MUCH OF IA AND SRN MN...WITH VALUES OF 500 J/KG STILL
NOTED IN SPC MESOANALYSIS THRU ERN MN AND INTO NWRN WI. WITH STRONGEST
850 MB WINDS BACK ACROSS ERN NE/CENT IA AND GNRLY UNIDIRECTIONAL SWRLY
FLOW FROM REGIONAL VWPS AS WELL AS BEST OBJECTIVELY ANALYZED MOISTURE
CONVERGENCE CENTERED IN NRN IA/SRN MN...EXPECT POSSIBLE THREAT OF SLOW
MOVING CONVECTION WITH POSSIBLE BACKBUILDING ACROSS THE SRN AREA OF
DISCUSSION IN ERN NE/IA AND POSSIBLY EXTENDING INTO SRN MN. WEAKER STORM
MOTION VECTORS ARE SEEN TO THE NE WITH CONVECTION MOVING THRU SERN MN
INTO NWRN WI ASSCD WITH WEAKER SFC WAVE INVOF KRWF/KMIC. NWS MESONET OBS
INDICATE GNRLY 1.0"-2.0" HAS FALLEN OVER THE LAST 3 HRS IN MANY AREAS
OF SERN MN AND NWRN WI...AND SLOW MOVING CONVECTIVE CELLS OVER THESE
SAME AREAS WILL FURTHER EXACERBATE  LOCALIZED CONCERNS. PLEASE REFER TO
RECENTLY ISSUED WPC MPD #0311 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON HVY RAINFALL
IN SERN MN/WRN WI.

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