    Unusually strong Ambrose Jet today near the South Shore beaches. Models have 30 to 40 mph gusts. So plenty of blowing sand for people trying to escape the heat further to the west today. Watch out for dangerous rip currents.




    Is there a technical explanation for this phenomenon?  This is the first time I have heard of this.

    Much of central and NE Pennsylvania under a tornado watch now with the exception of the Mt. Holly CWA.

    Much of central and northern New York (west of the Adirondacks) also under a tornado watch.

    1.93" this morning, monsoon between 8:30-9:00 dropped over an inch

    Big dump in Bucks County just west of Trenton.


    I had 0.95” with the worst conditions around 8:00 AM.  Nonstop lightning and thunder for 2 hours here.

  4. BDCF continues its movement to the west especially along the CT shoreline with temps in the mid to upper 60s as far west as the Branford area.  Meanwhile it seems like it is getting hung up some near the Riverhead area.  Temps along the north shore from about PJ almost to Mattituck are still in the upper 80s and low 90s.  You don’t see that type of distribution too often.

    BDCF just about to push through Sag Harbor and Southold. Easily visible on the OKX radar.

    Interesting look to that radar with the BDCF moving west through the twin forks and the SB front roughly along Sunrise and the Southern State.  Note the inverted Z appearance with the BDCF making faster progress along the Southern CT shoreline and it being held back some as it tries to move into interior SE CT.  A lot of interesting mesoscale stuff going on in the local area today.

    Looks like some action ahead of the main line in SEPA. What could become our MCS is still west of Harrisburg.

    35 lightning strikes in near me in the past hour according to my Tempest.

    This MCS looks like it will be more impressive than the storms on Monday were. 




    What is amazing about this one is the threat did not come into focus until yesterday evening.  As of yesterday afternoon today was supposed to be partly sunny and warm where I live. Certainly no expectation of potential heavy rain or a tornado watch.

    The storms to the southwest of Allentown look pretty good, so the threat isn't over yet. Hopefully they'll hold together and hit us in a couple hours.

    They are heading eastbound.  They won’t even extend as far north as my location.

    Kids being dismissed at 12:15 here.. first time I’ve ever seen this. 

    The school district people are being proactive about this.  If you analyze the potential risks that are being accounted for when schools are closed for a winter storm and compare those to the risks that a severe weather situation can bring to the table I think it is actually a fairly easy decision.  The fact that the school districts now have the remote learning piece in place seals the deal.

    It’s also unhealthy to die this way.  You’re entitled to your opinion.

    If you want to see what a tornado can do take a ride down to Fort Washington PA.  Get off at the exit from I276 for Rte 309.  Take a ride up Fort Washington Ave and then up Limekiln Pike.  This tornado happened last summer however there is still plenty left to see.  Homes with tarps still on their roofs, damage to a school, many large trees snapped in half about 20 to 30 feet off of the ground.  There are actually more tornado damage paths then I can count in that region.  We are living in a new climate regime and the old idea that tornadoes are just a mid western thing has been completely blown away.

    Never in my life have I seen this - My kids school just called and are dismissing early based on the severe weather forecasts.  We are a WEAK people, pathetic.

    Check out the post just before your’s.  Do you recall seeing a map like that for this region?  The atmosphere is quite juiced today so this is actually a good call IMO.
