...REFERENCE AWIPS GRAPHIC UNDER...DAY 1 EXCESSIVE RAINFALL...


SLIGHT RISK OF RAINFALL EXCEEDING FFG TO THE RIGHT OF A LINE FROM
25 ENE PVC 15 SSE MTP 20 S MJX 10 W 2W6 15 SE BCB 10 SSE 6V3

15Z UPDATE...

HAVE EXTENDED THE SLIGHT RISK AREA A BIT W-SW TO INCLUDE THE
CENTRAL APPALACHIANS...BASED ON THE ENHANCED UPSLOPE COMPONENT AND
SIGNAL IN THE LATEST HIGH RES GUIDANCE (INCLUDING 12Z 4KM NAM
CONEST) OF ISOLATED RAINFALL TOTALS OF 2.5 TO 5+ INCHES. GIVEN THE
RELATIVE LOWER FFG OVER THIS AREA (COMPARED TO THE LOWER TERRAIN
EAST)...THE LATEST (06Z BASED) SSEO MEAN 40 KM NEIGHBORHOOD
PROBABILITIES INDICATE A FAIRLY LARGE AREA ACROSS EASTERN AND
SOUTHERN WV WHERE THE PROBABILITIES OF 6 HOURLY QPF EXCEEDING FFG
IS 50% OR BETTER.

HURLEY


PREVIOUS DISCUSSION BELOW...

A WELL DEFINED AND PROGRESSIVE H5 TROF MOVING FROM THE NORTHERN
GREAT LAKES INTO WESTERN NEW ENGLAND THIS PERIOD..ALONG WITH
ANOTHER WELL DEFINED SOUTHERN STREAM H5 TROF WHICH IS MUCH SLOWER
MOVING THRU THE TN VALLEY..WILL LEAD TO A WET PATTERN FROM NEW
ENGLAND SOUTH-SOUTHWESTWARD INTO THE CENTRAL/EASTERN GULF COAST
REGION.  THE SURFACE FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH THE NORTHERN STREAM H5
TROF WILL BECOME QUASI-STATIONARY FROM JUST OFF THE NEW ENGLAND
COAST SOUTHWESTWARD INTO THE CENTRAL GULF COAST AREA..AS THE
SOUTHERLY MID/UPPER LEVEL FLOW AHEAD OF THE TN VALLEY CLOSED LOW
INHIBITS ANY SUBSTANTIAL SOUTH AND EAST PUSH TO THE FRONT.  EXPECT
THE COMBINATION OF FAVORABLE MID LEVEL TROUGHING..FRONTAL
CONVERGENCE ENHANCED BY A SLOW MOVING FRONTAL WAVE..AND VERY HIGH
PWS ALONG AND IN ADVANCE OF THE SURFACE BOUNDARY AND MID LEVEL
TROF..TO SUPPORT THE ORGANIZED..WIDESPREAD AND LOCALLY HEAVY
CONVECTION/RAINS..AND ESPECIALLY SO FROM EASTERN NEW ENGLAND DOWN
INTO THE MID ATLANTIC REGION.  OVERALL..THE LATEST MODEL SOLUTIONS
ARE IN VERY GOOD AGREEMENT MASS FIELD-WISE AND DECENT AGREEMENT
QPF-WISE..SO FOLLOWED THEM CLOSELY WITH JUST A BIT MORE WEIGHT
GIVEN TO THE HIRES GUIDANCE.  SOME 1-2+ INCH AREAL AVERAGE
RAINFALL AMOUNTS LIKELY OVER EASTERN NEW ENGLAND AND THE MID
ATLANTIC STATES..WITH ISOLATED HEAVIER AMOUNTS OF 3+ INCHES
POSSIBLE..GIVEN THE POTENTIAL FOR A COUPLE/SEVERAL ROUNDS OF
CONVECTION AND/OR TEMPORARY CELL TRAINING.
