SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...LATEST WATER VAPOR SATELLITE LOOP
INDICATING POTENT MID LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TAKING A MORE EWD TRACK
ALONG OR JUST SLIGHTLY S OF THE KY/TN BORDER.  A SUBTLE BUT RELATIVELY
STRONG MID TO LOW-LVL WAVE OF ENERGY...CURRENTLY APPROACHING CENTRAL
IN/WRN KY IN SATELLITE IMAGERY PROGRESSING EWD.  AHEAD OF THIS FEATURE...A
NEW DEFORMATION BAND APPEARS TO BE TAKING SHAPE ALIGNING ITSELF RIGHT
ALONG AND JUST N OF SFC FRONTAL BOUNDARY.  LATEST SFC MESOANALYSIS
SHOWS TEMPS TO BE AT OR BELOW FREEZING WITH LIGHT SNOW ALREADY FALLING
ACROSS MOST OF THE DISCUSSION AREA FROM E-CENTRAL IN...ACROSS CENTRAL
OH...EXT NRN WV...INTO SWRN PA.  IN THE PAST HR MODERATE SNOWS ARE BEING
REPORTED JUST AHEAD OF THE AFOREMENTIONED WAVE ACROSS CENTRAL/ERN IN AT
GUS AND MIE.

LATEST BLENDED TPW PRODUCT INDICATES THAT 0.5-0.6" PW VALUES HAVE
SURGED EWD AND ARE POOLING ALONG THE W TO E SFC BOUNDARY.  THIS ALSO
CORRELATES WELL WITH LATEST SATELLITE DERIVED SNOWFALL RATE PRODUCT
SHOWING 0.2"/HR IN-CLOUD RATES AT 1845Z.  WHILE THIS AREA DOES SIT
IN A RATHER BROAD AREA OF MID TO UL DIVERGENCE PER EXPERIMENTAL GOES
SATELLITE WIND PRODUCT...THE LACK OF STRONG UL JET ENERGY WILL LIKELY
LIMIT WIDESPREAD HVY SNOWFALL RATES.
