SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...LATEST AMSU PASS AT 1115Z AS WELL AS
GOES SOUNDER/GPS DATA SHOWING 1.25"-1.4" PWATS MOVING ONSHORE ALONG THE
OR COAST.  MW IMAGERY IS SHOWING A BREAK IN THE HIGHEST MOISTURE WITH
THE TAIL END OF THE 1.25" PWATS ENDING AT -140W WITH MORE ALONG THE
LINES OF 1.0" BEHIND IT.  WATER VAPOR AND GOES WINDS SHOWING CONTINUED
ONSHORE FLOW FROM 120KT JET WITH A TROUGH CONTINUING TO DIG NW OF HAWAII.
.
EXPECTING FAR SRN WA AND MUCH OF OR TO SEE THE BEST HEAVY
RAINS..ESPECIALLY THE FAVORABLE TERRAIN...AS THE JET CONTINUES PUSHING
MOISTURE ONSHORE AND INLAND.  IR IMAGERY IS SHOWING SOME LESSENING AND
WARMING OF THE CLOUD COVER WHICH COULD BE HINTING THAT THE TAIL END OF
THE HIGH MOISTURE IS NEARING THE SHORELINE OR CLOSE TO IT.  EXPECTING A
GRADUAL DROP IN MOISTURE ADVECTION AFTER THIS AS INDICATED BY MW/BLENDED
TPW AND THUS A GRADUAL DROP OFF IN WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINFALL.
