We had a similarly too-dry RRS sounding at EPZ on 00z 7/16. RAOB PW was 0.79 inches... GPS was at or slightly above 1 inch. AWIPS/D2D has a rudimentary sounding modification program. "Fixing" the boundary layer dewpoints, and smoothing out the mid-level noise only gave me about 0.88 inches PW, and sfc-based cape of about 100 J/Kg.Either way, the rather stable sounding belied the reality of the convective coverage and strength, which became quite strong especially just south of the border.
