  2. Both the 12z GFS and the ECMWF are showing a substantial omega block over the West coast in the 240hr. timeframe. It has a similar 500mb set up seen just before the March 93 super storm. Obviously a lot can change this far out, but it is of note that both models seem to be hinting at something special in this period.
  3. http://mp1.met.psu.edu/~fxg1/SAT_ATL/atlanim8wv.html The water vapor loop linked above shows the trough and soon to be upper level low to the West and a mid Atlantic low to the East. There is no where to go but up the Atlantic seaboard. The trough already appears to be going negative as well. I agree with others that by evening we should have better clarity.
  4. Great pictures of before and after, its amazing what Americans can do when we work together. Thanks for all the updates, Jomo. You have done a wonderful job of keeping us informed.
  5. A beautiful wator vapor loop of the storm. Note the cold front and associated high pressure nosing down from the midwest acting like a kicker. http://www.rap.ucar.edu/weather/satellite/displaySat.php?region=US&itype=wv&size=large&endDate=20101224&endTime=-1&duration=6
  6. 1"of precip out to 48 for central and northern VA. http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/nwprod/analysis/namer/gfs/00/images/gfs_p48_048l.gif
  7. Just as others have mentioned in past storms this year, the lack of sampling of the vorticity energy in the N.Pacific has given the computer models fits in coming up with solutions. It appears many of the players will be on the shores of B.C. today. http://www.atmos.washington.edu/~ovens/loops/wxloop.cgi?ir_central_enhanced+today
