    2/19-20 Winter Storm Observations

    Here's a tool I made that compares the HRRR radar to the observed radar. It can be useful for determining how the most recent run is doing with precip placement. As you can see, the 02z HRRR does not have the light returns as far north as they actually are. More images can be found here https://jmmweather.com/hrrr/

    Central PA - Winter 2018-19

    Definitely jealous of you true Central PA guys this storm! I came to State College in 2007 from PHL and was expecting to get pummeled by I-95 runners but instead missed out on 3 of the top 5 PHL snows ever while the single best storm in UNV my ten winters was 14" in Feb 2010 (PHL recorded 28" ). Now that I'm back in the PHL area, these are the kinds of storms I hoped for back in State College. Figures. Enjoy!

    Major Hurricane Michael

    Remarkable that Michael's eye has not filled in at all on satellite despite being over land for almost an hour:

    It depends on the zoom level and who Google Earth decides to place on top if there are multiples in one area... I'll attach the overlays and you can play with it on Google Earth Pro yourselves. prb_24hsnow_ge04_f042_latest_GE.kmz americanKML.kml

    Who'd have ever thought moving towards the coast would be beneficial for snow? Sorry, couldn't resist! I'm sure you'll get that I-95 runner one of these years...

    Hurricane Maria

    The pressure gradient force is absolutely nuts in this. Recon is measuring 1003 mb only about 30-40 miles out from the eye which is at least 928mb. That's going to make for incredible wind speeds.

    In those same 10 years, Philly (where I came from) got more snow than they knew what to do with so I figured the snow tends to be where I'm not haha. It's not the true coast, but yeah I'll definitely be more interested in the tropics here than in State College.

    Another thing going for you guys this winter is that I'm no longer part of the region! 10 winters in State College and nothing more than a slightly above normal snowfall winter with our biggest event being 14". Now it's back to the new snow capital of the US along the I-95 corridor!

    Crazy windy in State College as the line passed through. My guess is 60mph or so. We lost power until just now which is almost unheard of here.

    Pittsburgh PA spring 2017

    That's what I figured. It looks nasty on radar but I guess that doesn't necessarily correlate to lightning.

    Pittsburgh PA spring 2017

    http://www.lightningmaps.org/ is showing considerably less lightning than I would have thought with a line like this. Are any of you experiencing good thunder/lightning?

    Central PA - December 2017

    73/64 with mostly cloudy skies in State College. The breeze has picked up markedly over the last 30 minutes. If anything discreet is going to pop up ahead of the main line, this will be the time.

    Mesoscale Discussion 0623 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1241 PM CDT Mon May 01 2017 Areas affected...western New York through central Pennsylvania Concerning...Severe potential...Tornado Watch likely Valid 011741Z - 011845Z Probability of Watch Issuance...95 percent SUMMARY...Severe storm threat with damaging wind and a few tornadoes should continue to expand eastward into western NY and central PA this afternoon. A tornado watch will likely be issued soon. DISCUSSION...Organized line of storms with embedded mesovortices and bowing segments from Lake Erie through extreme eastern OH is moving east at around 40 kt. VWP data and special Pittsburg RAOB show very favorable wind profiles for embedded supercells with large 0-1 km hodographs. Latest visible imagery also show numerous cloud breaks which will promote further destabilization of the boundary layer with 500-1000 J/kg MLCAPE this afternoon. ..Dial/Grams.. 05/01/2017 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
