Phased Vort posted a topic in North East | Mid AtlanticSetup Description Northern stream Clipper with southern stream energy interaction Hello, folks. Quick thread opener here to allow for a place to discuss a possible clipper storm that may try to come in unnoticed and hits by surprise, if there are surprises these days in weather. Taking a look at the BSR closely, even though I imagine very few people would start a high percentage failure storm thread, it suggests that a clipper will be diving southeastward towards the Mid-Atlantic, and at the same time there´s a hint of a bit of low-pressure energy/trof of low pressure from the southern stream tracking towards the SE CONUS. From what I gathered from the BSR images, is that there´s a possibility that these two pieces could join up and for a bigger storm or just stay separate and the region get a decaying clipper or just a regular clipper passing through. But in case there´s some kind of interaction with the southern stream energy, we could get something out of this. Granted, the BSR shows no full-blown storm, Actually, the signal is weak and on the 30th of November, quite confusing. Let´s see if this evolves or just falls apart, just before the bigger ticket item progged to hit the area between December 2-3. Supportive Data BSR In case this does not pan out, the thread will eventually fall to the bottom of the page. And if for some reason this is a fantasy possibility only or related to any other storm, we can act accordingly later. Will add more support to the opener later if there is any available.
Phased Vort posted a topic in North East | Mid AtlanticAs a more trofy pattern starts to develop over the Northeastern CONUS and to some extent pver the Mid-Atlantic as well, the region becomes susceptable to precipitation, be it rain or snow, resultant from the so called Clippers. Some of these small weather makers, at times bring measurable precipitation and at other times can even develop into decent coastal storms for Long Island and New England. It seems that a clipper may indeed try to at least grace the region, especially the northern portions of the area, with precipitation in the form of rain and even some snow, as the clipper enters the region coming from the Great Lakes into westen NY and tracks toward northern New Jersey and then may try to deepen just south of Long Island and then get stronger just off the New Englando coast. As a result, precipitation will fall across the area, and could be enhanced should a coastal forms. That could then, allow some snowfall for some areas of New England.
