    Big New England heat 7/19-21

    From an WMUR article...Dr.Dews? I must admit I am a little bummed we aren’t going to see any good convection out of this. Oh well, another day at the pool sipping on IPAS then. HAMPTON, N.H. — Extreme heat draws crowds to the Seacoast, and people packed Hampton Beach on Saturday for relief. “This is my favorite time of the year,” said Seth Hinson. “I hate the winter. I can't stand it. I wish it was 100 every day.”

    That 84 in NW Iowa . Looks like that station was 90/86 for a reading if it's to be believed. https://mesowest.utah.edu/cgi-bin/droman/meso_base_dyn.cgi?stn=KSHL&unit=0&timetype=LOCAL Time (CDT) 2.0m Temperature ° F 2.0m Dew Point ° F 2.0m Wet bulb temperature ° F 2.0m Relative Humidity % 10.0m Wind Speed mph 10.0m Wind Gust mph 10.0m Wind Direction Pressure in Altimeter in Weather conditions Visibility miles Ceiling feet Quality Control 13:55 89.6 84.2 85.4 84 17.3 28.8 SSW 28.18 29.67 Clear 10.00 OK 13:35 89.6 84.2 85.4 84 20.7 27.6 S 28.17 29.66 Clear 10.00 OK 13:15 89.6 86.0 86.8 89 15.0 24.2 S 28.16 29.65 Clear 10.00 OK

    Widespread Severe Wx Saturday, July 20, 2019 across NNE

    NWS BOX throwing out the D word in their latest discussion. SPC still doesn't have us highlighted at all yet. Friday through Sunday ... Hot and humid. H85 temperatures around +20-22C, H7 around +10-12C. But concern. Steep mid-level lapse rates around Saturday, a lot of low-level instability. Shear vectors and orientation that suggest that if something were to become organized over Michigan within the region of steep mid level lapse rates and advect that perhaps we could see MCS / derecho activity Saturday and Sunday. Initial thinking, but nothing set in stone. Initial indications per 17.12z NAM and 17.0z EC, but not much indication in SREF / GFS. It would subsequently impact 2m temperature with cloud cover altering the heat and humidity forecast. Typically when we get the heat and humidity where highs alone approach triple digits do we see via climatology MCS / derecho events. Continued forecast of mid to upper 90 highs, some locations at or just slightly above 100 with dewpoints in the low 70s as boundary layer moisture is trapped beneath the cap, fueled by S flow, yielding heat indices around the triple digits, for some locations at or above 110F.

    TODAY: July 17th-18th - Storms/Severe/Flooding

    Looking at radar trends I’m a little concerned about training storms moving in towards Worcester.

    Hah no worries, it looked like it was tightening up quick to me! Stuff moving towards me in Northern Essex is looking pretty lackluster right now. Oh well

    July pattern(s) and discussion

    I don't know....that citrus looking thing in the sky might push us to 100. But for real, I'm going to take the under on 100. If I recall correctly we only tickled 100 up here in the Merrimack Valley during last years heat wave and that looked more impressive then this in my opinion.

    Is the map of the US on NWS homepage to get to particular WFOs not clickable for anyone else in here? Right as I comment it starts working for me again... Also looks like remnants of Barry are causing more problems in Arkansas today then it did along the most of the gulf coast. Who would've thought.

    .70 inches in 15 minutes. Can confirm, was only about a mile from LWM airport when it came through. https://mesowest.utah.edu/cgi-bin/droman/meso_base_dyn.cgi?stn=KLWM&unit=0&timetype=GMT

    I seriously don't trust a thing he says and can't believe some people give him the time of day. Compares yesterday to 1953 then still pats himself on the back with this tweet...

    Yup! Looks like round two for us here although not expecting anything as strong as earlier this afternoon.

    Nope. The shear is very Uni-Directional today. Should be a good hailer though. I won't be surprised if it that cell slips just west of Worcester as well.

    Nice. You are in the Lowell area right? Right on cue the cells moving into Boston Metro and North Shore just got warned.
