SATELLITE PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES..DATE/TIME 12/27/14 1720Z
SATELLITE ANALYSIS BRANCH/NESDIS---NPPU---TEL.301-683-1404
LATEST DATA USED: GOES-13 1700Z
NOAA AMSU:1222Z  1458Z 1008Z  DMSP SSMIS:1435Z 1033Z
.
LOCATION...SW ALABAMA..S .MISSISSIPPI...S LOUISIANA...
.
ATTN WFOS...MOB...JAN...LIX...
ATTN RFCS...SERFC...LMRFC...
.
EVENT...MOISTURE PLUME LIFTING NORTH AND NW IN GULF OF MEXICO...WESTERN
PART OF PLUME HAS A CONNECTION TO THE TROPICAL PACIFIC SOUTHWEST OF
SOUTHERN MEXICO...
.
SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...CAN EASILY SEE WHERE VERY HIGH 1.9"
MAX PWAT VALUES HAVE GONE FROM EARLIER NOAA AMSU/DMSP SSMIS MICROWAVE
PASSES OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO...LATEST 1545Z GPW PWAT SHOWING STENNIS,
MS AT 1.85" AND LSU AT BATON ROUGE AT 1.81" AND THAT THE HEART OF THE
HIGHEST VALUES WITHIN NORTH AND NW DRIFTING MOISTURE PLUME GULF COAST
AND SE TEXAS AND INLAND.   CONNECTION MORE WITH MID LEVEL 700MB FLOW FOR
GOOD MOISTURE TRANSPORT AT THAT LEVEL FROM PACIFIC INTO EASTERN TEXAS FOR
POTENTIAL FOR ANY CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT THERE...WHILE LOW LEVEL MORE
SUPPORTS LOWER MS VALLEY ACTIVITY WITH THE COOLING CLOUD TOPS EARLIER
LA..INTO S MS AND EDGING INTO INTERIOR SW ALABAMA BUT GETTING A LITTLE
FURTHER AWAY FROM THE LSU MAX PWAT OF 1.8" BUT RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF
THE STENNIS 1.85" MAX PWAT.    SHORT WAVES HARD TO SEE OR EXIST EAST OF
TEXAS...MAYBE SUBTLE..BUT MAIN TROUGH STILL WAY BACK AZ-NM-NW OLD MEXICO
WITH JET ACROSS CENTRAL TEXAS.
.
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 1715-2015ZZ...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...SEE LATEST WPC EXCESSIVE GRAPHIC AND DISCUSSION
ALONG WITH 6HR QPF AND METWATCH DISCUSSION.   STILL NOT A WHOLE LOT OF
ORGANIZATION TO PIN DOWN A LONG LASTING (MORE THAN A FEW HRS) ORGANIZED
HEAVY RAIN AREA...BUT INGREDIENTS THERE FOR LATER PERIODS...SO AGAIN
CHECK LATEST WPC QPF DISCUSSIONS AND FORECAST GRAPHICS.
