  1. Interesting radar over nyc area, simultaneously have east and west moving showers.
  2. Norfolk sustained 40 gusting to 53 per the main tropical thread. Pretty impressive given distance from center. I wonder if we can get some legit tropical storm conditions up here tomorrow morning.
  3. Isabel had 70-80 mph gusts across our region IIRC, I don’t see any models forecasting that around here.
  4. NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY TONIGHT/... Newly named Tropical Storm Ophelia is expected to move north through tonight, making landfall along the North Carolina coast. Ophelia will track into southeast Virginia, eventually losing its tropical characteristics and becoming an extratropical system as it moves across Virginia. This is the reason for the combination of tropical (Tropical Storm Warnings) and non- tropical (Wind Advisory) headlines in our area. Regardless of its designation, this system is expected to bring widespread rainfall and strong winds to the area starting tonight and persisting through Sunday morning. Light rain is expected to reach far southern Maryland this evening, then spread north through the overnight. Most of the area should be in light rain come sunrise Saturday. The heaviest rain should hold off until late Saturday morning. Temps tonight settle in the low to mid 50s, with upper 50s to low 60s from D.C. down to southern Maryland. Strong northeast winds are expected to develop along and east of the Blue Ridge as the circulation of Ophelia pushes northward. Wind gusts of 35-45 mph are expected, with stronger gusts up to 50-55mph along the immediate coast of the Western Shore and Tidal Potomac. The combination of long duration wind gusts and a saturated ground from rain will result in higher chances for downed trees across the area. A drenching rain is expected from the Blue Ridge eastward with 2 to 4 inches of rainfall, locally approaching 5 inches through Sunday morning. Given upslope flow against the east slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains, some localized heavy maxima are not out of the question. Forecast highs are in the upper 50s to mid 60s, locally down into the upper 40s to mid 50s across the mountains.
  5. Are those winds for 12z Monday? Edit: I see it’s an accumulated max wind gust product now.
  6. Euro is a solid 1-3 inches of rain region wide NW to SE. The windiest panel is 18 kt sustained winds in DC.
  7. In winter the euro no snow solution would be correct 99 times out of 100.
  8. - it’s really a shame that the main byproduct of our industrial civilization happens to make it warmer. I wish that carbon dioxide had the opposite effect, global cooling. Then people would pay attention! Imagine if summer was disappearing!
  9. Bowing segment headed towards Germantown looks like it means business.
  10. Storms are really crawling, the HRRR from this morning was off wrt timing.
