I might as well start this thread since someone has just broached the taboo on starting tropical threads under names other than Josh's or Adam's. Peak season is some months away, but past experience shows that neutral-warm ENSO years with a slow-moving MJO centered in this region can often produce some of the most intense storms. I think we will see at least four +140-kt cyclones with a tendency to track more to the NE this year, i.e. toward the Ryukyus and Japanese islands, as in 2004. Thoughts?
It's about that time for the year end review. And with that, what was everyone's favorite weather events of 2013. For me, IMBY...just a top 5. 1) November 17 tornado outbreak 2) March 24-25 snowstorm 3) December 13-14 snowstorm 4) April heavy rainfall/flooding (18-19th in particular) 5) March 5-6 snowstorm
It's a bit early in the year, but with the winter being kind of puny in terms of snowfall I figured I'd at least make this thread and let it sit for when people have downtime. The folks interested in severe weather from this forum can discuss last years events before the season and then any upcoming threats before they become imminent. I guess the highlight of 2012 would be the June Derecho event that sparked off the horrid "Derechosauruswrecks" nickname. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_2012_North_American_derecho http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/archive/event.php?date=20120629 June 1 was also noteworthy - http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/archive/event.php?date=20120601 September 8 looks like it had a decent number of reports locally as well - http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/archive/event.php?date=20120908 And September 18 - http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/archive/event.php?date=20120918 *********** I haven't looked at what our severe season could look like but I seem to recall Ian saying it could potentially suck. There was a good link posted over in the New England thread - really neat stuff http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/envbrowser/ I just hope we don't have too many 100 degree days...the summers can be brutal around DC. It's one of the few things we can actually do well with!!! (heat).
