2019 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx - General Discussion

Recommended Posts

6z 3kNAM shows scattered severe storms rolling through our region between 18z and 21z. 9z HRRR run shows similar scenario with more storms. 10z HRRR run was much more quiet. The MCS is in western Ohio and southern Indiana, We should see some decent storms later today.

drive an hour or so north and you'll find it.

SPC overnight outlook seems uncertain for today. lots of the factors in play, which seems par for the course for us around here. 

Quote

...Upper Ohio Valley eastward toward New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland... The forecast in this region will be somewhat complicated by mid-morning to mid-day convection expected to traverse the region from west to east - particularly across Pennsylvania. Nevertheless, models indicate the development of weak to moderate instability ahead of a cold front that will migrate southward across the region. This destabilization will occur amidst a strongly sheared airmass, with 30-40 kt westerly 850 hPa flow veering and strengthening to northwesterly aloft. Convection is expected to evolve into a series of mixed modes (both linear and cellular) with tornadoes, hail, and damaging wind gusts all possible. Convection will migrate southeastward toward Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey during the evening before waning with near-surface stabilization late in the period.

If we can get out of the clouds and warm quickly today, it will bode well for us later.

Seems the HRRR idea of the mid afternoon storms having more impact than the Midwest complex slated for evening has gained a "bit" more support. But, as Mount Holly NWS states the Midwest complex needs to be watched 

Great job by Mount Holly in the discussion this AM. covers everything in detail ! 

This is just a snippet 

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...

630 update:

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to move across northern
portions of the forecast area (generally along and north of
I-78) for the next couple hours. Occasional bursts of moderate
rain will be the main concern with these AM storms. Regarding
the stronger storm potential later in the day 06Z guidance has
trended a bit more towards the HRRR solution in the morning
discussion e.g. an initial line of stronger storms passing
through the area mid-afternoon and then less activity in the
evening (generally missing the area to the north). Consequently
the line of storms currently extending through the Midwest will
bear watching.

The CAM solutions are a bit mixed, mostly based on how they evolve the ongoing OH storms.    The "good" CAM solutions have storms forming on the outflow of that system (or least some sort of remnant boundary) and rolling through here during the 3-5pm timeframe or so.   Mappy correctly notes that getting some good heating would help a ton, and most guidance makes that happen.      The shear definitely supports some supercells in addition to line segments, although I think it's more of a hail/wind day than a tornado day.

Agreed. I think the 5% tornado threat per SPC is generous for us. 

If any one wants to see a good storm, they have to hope things go discrete before the main line comes through. otherwise, you'll get embedded cells in the line that won't be nearly as exciting. 

... if you're a weenie like me who wants a really good storm :lol:

The LWX forecast area averages 3 Enhanced Risks per year and 1 Moderate Risk per 3 years.

Wow,  never knew that Moderate Risk only averages once every three years.  That explains a lot about the frequency of severe weather in our parts.

Yeap. Our last moderate risk was actually a while ago June 13, 2013. (6 years ago)

Yeah the most recent HRRR runs pretty much suck - just isolated activity. 

It's also killing off the MCS way too fast.

    THIS.     If you look at what it has at 13z compared to radar, it's failing on the OH storms.      The earlier runs had a much better handle on that activity and look much better for us.

Dews need to come up in a hurry. We are still in the low to mid 50s for dews at best. That'll help a lot with instability. Hopefully we can advect some juicy dews in. 

It's not happening here today.

I know your insight is much valued. But, maybe we can at least get some rainfall. In this case for the plants.

Just a little humor - the CIPS analogs from the 0z run for the 24hr mark have 5/31/2008 as an analog. I mention this because a few days later that year on June 4th we had one of our more impressive severe weather outbreaks in the last 15 years. That was a lot of fun IMBY.
