  1. please go back to school. We did have convection. You can have convection without producing thunder and lightning. There were severe t- storm warnings issued and an EF1 tornado . You do not need thunder and lighting to create convection. Why must you insist on challenging me? Do have nothing better else to talk about other than wishing for a snow storm? Convection – When warm, moist air near the surface rises to be above the heavier cool, dry air this is a form of heat transfer or convection. The rising motion typically cools the air. As the air cools, it reaches the dewpoint and all of the moisture in the air condenses– forming clouds. Depending on many factors, these clouds can form rain and even thunderstorms. The process of falling rain is caused by convection. Dry Convection – The type of convection not associated with storms is called dry convection. This occurs when warm air at the surface rises to be above the cooler air overhead. Because there is no moisture, this typically doesn’t have cloud cover associated with it.

  4. woopie ===looks like t storm a good bet this morning with the passage of the front. Watch out for the flash freeze damaging winds and blowing snow?
  5. as per Mt Holly this morning--- we track since no big snows seen as of yet Due to the heavy rain falling on top of already wet soil we could certainly have some nuisance flooding and significant rises on local area small rivers and streams. If widespread rainfall totals reach or exceed 2 inches then additional flooding would be possible. Given that the axis of heaviest rain may occur near and especially east of I-95, held off on any flood watches. Event rainfall totals are forecast to be 1.5-2.5 inches with local amounts close to 3 inches. In addition, at least some guidance shows a little instability developing primarily across portions of Delmarva early Friday morning as the surface low passes nearby and ahead of the cold front. The soundings look on the moist side which may result in rather limited instability, however given the robust wind fields this will have to be watched. Some high-resolution guidance suggests that Delmarva could be on the northern extent of a possible squall line. Given less than ideal instability forecast for lightning production, opted to leave a thunder mention out for now. The greater chance for some thunder looks to be south of our area.
  6. Latest Mt Holly discussion-----------------Thursday night into Friday the low over the central United States will finally swing east and take on a negative tilt. The ECMWF, GFS, and CMC all show slightly different solutions here. The GFS has surface low pressure heading northeast over the coastal plain of NJ. The ECMWF has the low heading northeast towards Ontario. The CMC is a hybrid of the two. Either way, wet weather looks to persist into Friday. The latest run of the GEFS shows a widespread 1 to 2" possible for the Wednesday through Friday period, while the EPS run has totals closer to two inches. Saturday, drier weather will return with another upper level low approaching from the west. Potential for some good flooding at least
  7. Well, nothing better than tracking legit t- storm chances in February rather then tracking GFS 10 day fantasy snow storms in a miserable snow producing pattern. Lets see if we can get flood warnings to t- storms in this crazy pattern since there is way more more warm air available to produce flooding rains and t-storms than cold air to produce heavy snow. Lets start off this topic by discussing this afternoons Mt Holly discussion about the triple point threat- always a severe t-storm in late April for us when we get into this situation. Lets see if we can manage some serious discussion about this particular threat along with above normal temps. Time to get off the snow-deprived train. By Friday, a kicker shortwave will ride southeastward across the Plains and finally push the stalled trough along. At the surface, this will translate to a final push as a more noticeable surface low forms across the Southeast and pushes up the I-95 corridor Friday, with the triple point moving directly over our area. This will not come as anything different than what we`ve seen thus far this winter with another unfavorable storm track for appreciable snow fall. No significant snowfall is forecast for the next seven days. We`ll just have to maintain patience for now.
  8. ground hogs day needle storm is kaput. My foot of snow for the LV has died on the vine- a slow miserable death. If we are lucky 1-2 inches that will melt as fast it fell if we get even receive any frozen precip at all. Valentines day week, the last gasp of a pattern change and maybe a 10 day fantasy storm as demonstrated by the models again this morning is like taking your last dying breath otherwise this winter will go down in the record book. I am getting real concerned that we could get" Marched On" with the spring vegetation popping up and blooming so early by the end of next week. One good extreme freeze from a short cold snap and spring flowers and blooms will take an ass kicking. Also , having a foot of snow on blooming daffodils is not good if it is followed by arctic air for a week. Even though I said the analog year was 94-95 for this year, this season reminds me a lot of happened in 93 before the superstorm. While I am not saying we will have another one, the potential really exists for one of the Miller As to be a real good snow producer if the pattern changes after Valentines day FWIW.
  9. The only changes to my initial thoughts of the the Ground hog day beheading storm event of being a foot of snow for us is unlikely but more realistic of a half of that amount as it stands right now. (Snow weenie in me). I will start watching ther models more when better and more reliable sampling comes are ingested into the models for Wednesday into Thursday and once the LP gets closer or over the continental divide. The parade of Miller A's still may happen even though the -AO must get into place if even for a little time. I agree with Ralph that next week looks very promising for a good coastal as some blocking is appearing on the LR models. Analog year still looks like 94-95. We just cannot get the long shots of Arctic cold air as the the progressive and transient cold air shot patterns are the dominant feature this winter. In this type of pattern though, it stands to reason that I am much more excited about a very active weather pattern for severe t- storms in mid-late April into May for the entire eastern US as in 1995. yes we are close and I will agree with that but the better chances of Miller A's formations usually start popping a week or so later once we get to that end of that COD point as the subtropical jet tends to open for business. I will try to remember to my past weather experiences in this situation and say if I had to pick an analog year, it would be 1994-95 as further described from this NYC site: More good weather historical info here. https://thestarryeye.typepad.com/weather/2014/11/each-winters-snowstorms-1970-2014.html The date and amount of snow tend to match up pretty well to this winter thus far. Waiting for the big one in the next few weeks. WINTER OF 1994-95 Feb. 4, 1995 - Only 11.8" of snow fell during this winter and almost all of it fell today as 10.8" of heavy, wet snow fell furiously on a Saturday morning (close to three inches fell between 6-7AM) before changing over to rain at around 9AM. Then the coldest air of the winter moved in overnight, flash-freezing the slush.
  10. I absolutely agree with this synopsis. A bunch of rookies with no meteorological educational background. My cat does a better job then they do. They are paid to read the scripts from "Accuwrong" --thats it. Every time I see that dam commercial publicizing that "schools look to be closed with the fake and over exited kids on dope, I just want to scream.
  11. wow, this was just posted in the PA forum. I guess I hit the mark about Lake Erie and the analog year.
  12. for my friends in the NYC forum from the Lehigh Valley: wondering how crappy a winter can be, especially this one? This link should be bring back memories for all and there is some hope that you may get some heavy snowfalls around Valentines day.. https://thestarryeye.typepad.com/weather/2014/11/each-winters-snowstorms-1970-2014.html
