...SE OK INTO THE ARKLATEX...

MODEST LOW LEVEL SWLY FLOW DRAWING PWS AOA 2 INCHES INTO AND IN
ADVANCE OF MCV DROPPING SEWD OVER OK SHOULD CONTINUE TO SUPPORT
ORGANIZED CONVECTION WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL RATES THRU PARTS
OF ERN TX INTO SRN AR/NRN LA THIS MRNG AND AFTN AS ADDITIONAL
UPSTREAM ENERGY HELPS SHIFT 85H INFLOW AND DEEPER MSTR SLOWLY SEWD
THIS PD.  BASED ON RECENT TRENDS BELIEVE 00Z NAM IS TOO FAR NORTH
WITH THE HEAVIER RAINS ACRS THE ARKLATEX REGION..WHILE 00Z HI RES
RUNS SEEM TO BE CAPTURING THE MORE SRN TRENDS OF THE STGR
CONVECTION ACRS NRN TX THIS MRNG.  THIS MAY YIELD A NEW MCV THAT
WOULD LIKELY TRACK EWD NEAR THE NRN LA/SRN AR BORDER THIS
MRNG/AFTN GENERATING STEADIER ORGANIZED RAIN/TSTMS NEAR AND NORTH
OF THE MCV WITH TRAILING CONVECTION...SOME WITH LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINS EXTENDING SWD INTO ERN TX.  KEPT AMOUNTS SOMEWHAT
CONSERVATIVE BASED ON LARGE MODEL SPREAD ACRS THIS REGION BUT
COULD STILL SEE SOME 1 TO 2 INCH AREAL AVG AMOUNTS WITH ISOLD
AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF 4 INCHES WHERE CELL REGENERATION MAY
OCCUR..SUPPORTING A SLIGHT RISK FOR EXCESSIVE RAINS.


...SRN CO SWD INTO EXTREME W TX...

WEAK AND MOIST UPSLOPE FLOW CONDITIONS WILL AGAIN PERSIST ACRS
THIS REGION WITH POTNL FOR STG SLOW MOVING CONVECTION FOCUSING A
BIT FARTHER SOUTH TODAY..ESPECIALLY THRU THE FAVORED ERN UPSLOPE
AREAS OF SRN CO INTO ERN NM/EXTREME WRN TX..UNDER WEAK NWLY FLOW
PATRN.   PWS OF UP TO 1.50 INCHES ARE FCST TO WORK THEIR WAY NWWD
INTO PARTS OF WRN TX/NM LATE THUR/THUR NIGHT WITH MODEST
INSTABILITY DVLPG DURING PEAK AFTN HEATING.  MODEL SOUNDINGS
SHOULD AREAS OF TALL SKINNY CAPES ALONG WITH WEAK STEERING FLOW OF
LESS THEN 10 KTS ESPECIALLY ACRS PARTS OF SRN NM/EXTREME W TX
SUGGESTING POTNL FOR SOME SLOW MOVING STORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
SOME LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS  FF GUIDANCE VALUES ARE RATHER
LOW ACRS THIS REGION DUE TO SOME RECENT RAINS WHICH GIVEN THE
ABOVE SUPPORTS AT LEAST A SLIGHT RISK OF EXCESSIVE RAINS.
