    February 2019 General Discussion and Observation Thread

    Was just startled by some kind of sustained flash to my west (from Piscataway). Some shades of brown and blue. It came in two waves. I guess it must've been a transformer... wild.

    Can confirm. But those breezes are still cutting through me. I had to retype this post a few times.

    OBS only thread winter storm Jan 19-20, 2019

    No wintry precip at all in Piscataway. Time for bed.

    January 19-20th Winter Storm Threat

    Not meaning to impart bias or disregard analysis thusfar, I have no preference and will take whatever the atmosphere gives us because I have no choice. Just wanted to say the sensible weather impacting millions of people depends upon some very thin temperature lines over just a few miles. Looks like the ultimate nowcast. Stay off the roads, wherever you are. I wouldn't wager any amount of snow or ice for anyone right now in the Metro. If you want to bet on rain and drive around, godspeed to you.

    January 19-20th Winter Storm Threat

    I don't want to go too far down the rabbit hole of "I want this weather, nuh uh I want that weather" but a very serious FRZ or sleet event is still exciting to me. As much fun as a ton of powder will be, it's much rarer from recent history to get a significant ice storm. For us in CNJ that is very much on the table. I've seen tons of huge snow events, not many of the former.

    January 19-20th Winter Storm Threat

    Borderline temps above, cold at the surface, heavy mixed precip followed by deep cold the following Monday. It looks like several inches of dense frozen trash followed by flash freezing. You're gonna need a pickaxe to clear this stuff up if you aren't done by Sunday night.

    It has the appearance and demeanor of a decaying tropical cyclone.

    Lightning earlier, and a very heavy steady rain. Some gustier winds now too. The prodigious precipitation this year has been something amazing. Was forky correct when he said we're becoming a snowier Atlanta? It's probably the most apt description of the 2010s climate I've heard so far. But we're more prone to being in the rain shield because of our latitude. This has been a relatively unusual extratropical cyclone. Very potent, compact, but slow-moving.

    Storm went from hours of heavy snow to an hour or two of moderate sleet and now ZR. Temp 30. We might never get plain rain. Tomorrow's commute could be very rough even if the back-end precip does not verify. And if it does, well forget it lol.

    Winds starting to increase and take on a gustier disposition.

    I'm not sure how to describe this but this isn't the strongest gradient. Rather than a tight squall line, there's a significant gap between the mT and cP airmasses. Basically a thick front. Just instinctively it seems like strong CAA events like we'll experience tomorrow bring tighter squalls.

    I dare say it, things are changing. We may be in for some interesting weather over the next Forever, I guess.

    LOL @NycStormChaser I didn't even know that was you. Great spot. I saw the racing clouds and felt the temps and humidity and didn't think to check the sheer. And I don't know what TOR parameters there are besides. But it's amazing how many of these setups we have had. What a goofball summer/fall.

    BTW the significant tornado parameter map posted much earlier today did very well. Lots of potential to the west that wasn't fully captured but overall, there's a tornado warning over my head I wasn't expecting 24 hours ago. I'm impressed.
