.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 0400-0700Z...HIGH CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...NUMEROUS SUPERCELLS HAVE CONGEALED ACROSS PORTIONS
OF N-CENTRAL TX IN THE LAST 1-2 HRS WITHIN A VERY CONDUCIVE ENVIRONMENT
FOR BACKBUILDING MCS`S.  LATEST IR LOOP SHOW RAPIDLY EVOLVING LARGE MCS
(CENTERED JUST WNW OF RPH) HAS REMAINED NEARLY STATIONARY...AS UPSTREAM
NEW CELLS FEED IN AND MERGE WITHIN WELL ORGANIZED COMPLEX.  WITH THIS
MCS BEING THE SRN MOST IN A SERIES OF S-N ORIENTED COMPLEXES ACROSS THE
CENTRAL US...IT HAS UNIMPEDED ACCESS TO LLVL DUAL MOISTURE FEED FROM
PACIFIC AND GULF OF MEXICO WHICH IS LIKELY AIDING IN THE ENHANCEMENT OF
EFFICIENT RAINFALL RATES.

LATEST MOSAIC REGIONAL RADAR SUGGESTS A MATURE MESOCYCLONE HAS DEVELOPED
AND IS MOVING ENE ACROSS NRN THROCKMORTON CO.  THIS APPEARS TO HAVE
STRENGTHENED WAA TO THE E WHERE CLOUD TOPS HAVE RAPIDLY COOLED IN THE
LAST 30 MINS.  ADDITIONAL CELL MERGERS ARE ALSO TRYING TO EXPAND ALONG
THE NWRN EDGE OF THE MCS WHERE SLIGHTY BETTER UL DIFFLUENCE IS MAXIMIZED
IN SATELLITE WINDS.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL HRS ANTICIPATING VERY HEAVY RAINS WITH RATES NEAR
3.0"/HR WITH OVERALL SLOW-MOVING MCS ALONG THE RED RIVER...PARTICULARLY
ACROSS N-CENTRAL TX  GIVEN ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS AND STILL HIGH CAPE
VALUES UPSTREAM ACROSS SRN TX IN GOES SOUNDER PRODUCT.

AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
