Perfect Day

Found 9 results

  1. July 22-23 has the potential to be a pretty wet day across the majority of the northeast. Right now the WPC has placed a moderate chance of excessive rain over the area, and the SPC has now placed a slight chance of stronger storms toward the coast from Providence to DC. The GFS and NAM both have the region getting up to 2 inches of rain and localized 3 inches+. Pictures order...WPC, SPC
  2. Slight risk these days means its almost guaranteed. last weekends slight risk created havoc here on LI with major damage, hail, and straight line / down burst destructive winds. With the current air mass in place and the timing late Saturday morning into the afternoon, have a feeling this is going to be a real doozy of a frontal passage for many. SPC General .5 to an inch, double and triple that in thunderstorms and 4+ in those training slow movers. Watch for the flash flooding of small streams and rivers while on the road! 48 hours ending Sunday, so what falls overnight Friday and Saturday into Sunday as the front pulls through. GFS more bullish on the 1 inch + over a wider area.
  3. Quite the super soaker coming up. NAM 3k. I would disregard the hyper-localization at this point - this model does not get specifics down well, especially at this range. I would say 1"+ is fairly likely in most areas. HRDPS. I like the "flatness" of the precipitation this model produces, always seems to paint a good picture, at least in my mind. Here's a GIF of its simulated radar. Couple of tidbits out of OKX. Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New York NY 331 PM EDT Thu Apr 25 2019 Considering the high amount of rain the region has received recently, and the forecasted rainfall amounts, I would say the flooding threat is quite likely. Especially in areas where thunderstorms decide to deluge on.
  4. Quick thread opener here to allow for a place for the discussion of the threat of a possible coastal storm affecting the Mid-Atlantic as a whole and possibly southern New England, and also to avoid the off-topic contamination of @MaineJay´s April Fools storm thread. And yeah, also because no one volunteered to start this one. Below, please see some recent model images for this possible coastal mischief. March 28th 12Z GFS March 28th 12Z FV3: March 28th 12Z ECMWF: Let´s see if there will be any frozen precipitation surprises or if it will be a complete big soaker for many folks.
  5. Don't see a thread for this, so might as well make it. Nice coverage over the Northeast right now. 18z NAM 3k - I do think this model "overlocalizes" some cells, just look for lines of pop-up thunderstorms. 18z HRDPS - I do favor this model for general placement as well as QPF. 0z HRRR "action time" for NYC and the surroundings. GOES-EAST Band 8 "Upper-Level Water Vapor". Look at that moisture plume. Efficient rain-producer. OKX mentions two concerns - high PWAT and snowmelt from VT/NH.

  6. Hello, folks! Opening up this thread here in the Southeast sub-forum to allow for a possible pretty strong and fascinating cyclogenesis that could take place deep over the central GOMEX and affect Florida with lots of rain and even wind possibly. Different models have shown different solutions and varying intensity degrees, but there´s a possibility that this storm could go through some pretty amazing deepening cycle as it hits the southeast CONUS Atlantic coast after leaving Florida. Depending on how this progresses and the track it takes, the Southeast CONUS coast could deal with a pretty potent early spring coast storm along its coast where heavy rain, flooding, wind and perhaps thunderstorms could affect the region pretty substantially. I think it should be a cool event to track and see how it evolves and if something decent comes out of it. Below, please see today´s 12Z ECMWF model image: I hope there´s interest in this one and a nice discussion and tracking take place. Will be updating the thread through the next coming days.
  7. PREFACE Getting past the January 20th time frame and storm, there are indications that a cold air invasion is becoming more and more apparent for the eastern CONUS as we fast approach the last 10 days of January. With that in mind and considering that the southern stream over the CONUS should continue to be actively keeping the GOMEX rich moisture content available to be lifted and gathered for storm formation, I see a rather good opportunity for a storm to impact the region, which would include the Mid-Atlantic and even New England depending on how amplified the storm becomes. For a more amplified storm to come to be, we need a solid set of teleconnections (AO, EPO, NAO, and PNA) and the development of Greenland into North Pole blocking, or at least a Greenland block. Given the actual data available from the EPS 46 days and EPS products, the January 24-26 time frame, would benefit from a mostly solid teleconnection package and perhaps the advent of a Greenland into North Pole blocking. The blocking though, may not be totally established yet during this time frame, but by the end of January, it could be the big boss in town. Long range operational model signals do exist for a storm in this time frame, but as I usually do, I try to avoid using the operational model storm signals for possibilities that are in the 12 to 16 days in the future time frame for the thread openers, instead relying on the ensemble guidance signals or other longer range weekly or monthly models. Given that some operational models present "forecasts" or outputs for 15 to 16 days out, I use that range as my limit to consider opening a storm thread, to avoid turning the thread into a long-range pattern discussion thread. Overall Set up Continued southern stream activity with ample GOMEX moisture to be tapped and lifted along with deeper cold air presence perhaps with a high-pressure presence and CAD development. Teleconnection robust package, possible initial developing stages of Greenland blocking, aiding in a more teemed northwestern Atlantic Ocean. Track-wise, we could have one of the 3 most traditional tracks, the western/central PA cutter track, the northern Mid-Atlantic tucked to the coast track and the beloved benchmark track. Which track would be the verified one come the time frame, would be determined in good part by the depth of the cold air in place, blocking high-pressure placement, possible phasing time, if one ever comes to be, and interestingly enough, whatever influence the initial development stages of the Greenland block would have on this time frame, if any at all. Most of these mentioned can certainly be a result of how strong the teleconnection package for this time frame is. Below, an image showing the 3 possible storm tracks can be seen. Storm Track Visual Aid Before we move on the next page, on which you will be able to see the forecasted EPS North American and Northern Hemisphere setup, the EPS 46-days teleconnections and EPS precipitation output for this time frame, I would like to finish this page, with a couple of EPS control runs images and an very interesting, perhaps surprising to some, seasonal CFS MSLP output for this time frame. CFS Surface Pressure It´s very intriguing or interesting to me at least, that very robust storm would be shown on the CFS at such a time range, near the time frame that this thread discusses. It´s a neat piece of information or perhaps, let´s say evidence. Jan 9th, 2019 12Z EPS CONTROL (tucked and benchmark track hybrid) Jan 10th, 2019 00Z EPS CONTROL (western PA track hybrid) On the next page, you will see additional data related to this time frame. To start off this page, please see the Northern Hemisphere and North America set up for the time frame in discussion. January 7th, 2019, 00Z EPS 46 day Northern Hemisphere North America There´s no way to look at this setup and be indifferent to it. That argues for a real winter over the eastern CONUS. We can see the lower heights over northern Canada connect to the lower heights over the SE CONUS, setting up a deep negatively oriented trough over eastern North America, and the developing Greenland block. All that if were to verify, would translate to a much colder eastern United States and a much more promising storm track from the southeast to northeast CONUS with the less progressive component courtesy of the Greenland blocking. As we continue, you can see below the EPS 24-hour precipitation for the time frame in discussion. Jan 9th, 2019 12Z Jan 10th, 2019 00Z And now the EPS 46-days teleconnections (AO, EPO, NAO, and PNA) AO EPO There is not much to argue concerning this EPS AO/EPO combo as it relates to the time frame. Both teleconnections are in their negative state, which is primordial for the availability of a strong and more sustained cold air presence over the eastern CONUS. The -AO is around -1.5 to -1.7 while the -EPO is around -1.3 to -1.5, which is the most negative it has been in recent weeks. We like this. NAO PNA This combo, the way I interpret it, looks very promising and supportive of a storm track that could deliver the wintry goods and be more amplified, and perhaps not so quick to exit the region. The -NAO can lay a hand in allowing blocking conditions over the eastern areas of North America while the +PNA would argue for a ridge over the western US and depending on how it interacts with the -EPO aforementioned, a deeper colder trough could pass through the eastern US. Notice that the -PNA is in positive to negative trajectory during the time frame in discussion, and flips to negative sometime around January 28th. That changing magnitude could play a positive role in the flow pattern. Given the data, this time frame looks like it has more robust aspects to it to allow the region to at least have a better shot at a wintry storm that may impact areas that are snowless since November, What do you guys think? Does this one have a standing chance? Or is it another dream only reality? Later! UPDATES: Jan 11th, 2018 January 10th, 2019, 00Z EPS 46 day Northern Hemisphere North America January 10th, 2019, 00Z EPS 46 day AO EPO This combo has suffered a blow and is weaker now as compared to the January 7th run. The -AO continues pretty solid. However, the EPO has changed to neutral to slightly negative. Before on the 7th of January, it was decently in a negative state. NAO PNA This combo also has suffered from changes. Although the NAO continues to be negative, it is not as negative as compared to the output from the January 7th run. As for the PNA, it went from a more solid positive state to a slightly positive state, basically neutral and flat. We will see how this evolves on the next update scheduled to occur on January 14th, 2019.
  8. More rain arrives tonight and tomorrow. Minor coastal low? Current Hazards. Keep in mind many of these areas have already seen a lot of rain in the past couple of days! NAM 3k GIF. That's an awfully big rain shield / plate! NAM 3k, HRDPS, HRRR precipitation totals. NAM 3k and HRDPS comparing precipitation and temperature. Looks like it will be a chilly rain! Current Radar.
  9. Could be some serious flash flooding this week.
