    2019 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx - General Discussion

    Our region is upgraded to Slight Risk

    Is next winter looking like a disaster?

    PD1 was and is, to this day my all time favorite storm as well, living here in southern MD. Schools closed for a week, snow packed engine blocks, drifts up to the 2nd story and total whiteout conditions for hours.

    Yeah, those storms are falling apart pretty rapidly now.

    The storms entering Pennsylvania above Pittsburgh, could interrupt the extreme heat this afternoon.

    Hurricane Barry

    F5 weather/Eurowx.com had the strong hurricane for UKMET as well, way lower than 980 at landfall western LA. Certainly a cat 2, with the wind gust estimates at 125 mph. Not buying into that. If this system/Barry makes landfall in central/western LA the rainfall will be the largest issue. Mississippi River is not capable of handling a large rain event.

    Wow, pretty darned good when you are fringed by the storms and still get 3.07" for the day and the vast majority was in 90 minutes. The Cameron Run roaring beside and under the Beltway was extremely impressive, I found out that it had dropped almost 2 feet from it's peak, when I passed through.

    That blob of heavy rain following behind and moving south out of Howard and eastern Montgomery isn't going to help DC/Arlington/Alexandria and PG County at all.

    Maybe the rain and associated coastal low will move through quicker than expected and allow for good rain tonight and earlier clearing tomorrow? Earlier timing is common with systems.

    0.47" today, earlier we had some steady rain, now we have steady drizzle even without radar returns overhead.

    2019 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx - General Discussion

    We will not have the benefit of good shear for this event, but keep in mind that one of Virginia's best tornado events occurred in August 1993 and was not a tropical induced event.

    We have had decent mid level lapse rates(around or just above 7 C/km) for the morning and early afternoon, not enough shear today.
