...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK FOR EXCESSIVE RAINFALL OVER PORTIONS
OF THE SOUTHEAST AND THE SOUTHWEST AS WELL AS SOUTHERN FLORIDA...
The Marginal Risk area was maintained for portions of Arizona and
southwest New Mexico where moisture (precipitable water values of
a little less than 1.0 inches) will be lingering in a region of
light and variable low level flow. Models indicate moist
southwesterly flow developing upstream...resulting in a plume of
higher precipitable water values that noses towards Arizona and
(in a few cases) near the site of recent flash flooding. With soil
moisture well above the 98th percentile for much of this area,
isolated flash flooding and runoff is a concern.
23Z Update -- Expanded the Marginal Risk area a bit to the north
across more of central MS and central-northern AL-GA, based on the
latest observational and mesoanalysis trends, along with the 18Z
CAMs (including HREF 40km neighborhood exceedance probabilities).
16Z update -- Hi-res solutions keep rainfall rates upwards of 1-2
inches/hour across the Gulf Coast and points to the north.
Marginal Risk in effect covers most of the locations with
increased sensitivity for excessive rainfall and isolated flash
flooding concerns; however, it was expanded into southern South
Carolina. Storms associated with a MCV tracking through Georgia
and South Carolina could produce 2 to 3 inches/hour this afternoon.
