2019 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx - General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Still 5 tor, 15 hail, 15 wind at 1630 OTLK 

30 wind and ENH risk remains where it is... maybe a super slight south shift

Had to take my daughter to an appt on the North end of Frederick. Full sun out up there. We live on the SW side of Frederick got home and clouds are really retreating down here now. Currently 74 72/64

think we'll be in and out of the clouds until gametime.  hopefully enough fuel to keep the line going.  there's some lightning with just about the entire line.

SPC going for the twin bill it appears in their 1630 disco

...NY into Mid Atlantic Region...

   A fast moving line of thunderstorms is tracking across central PA,
   and extends southwestward into WV.  This line may intensify this
   afternoon as it approaches the east coast, with a risk of locally
   damaging wind gusts.  Please refer to MCD #750 for further details.

   In the wake of the first line, multiple lines and clusters of
   thunderstorms are expected to form across parts of western/central
   PA into northern WV.  Fast flow aloft and sufficient time to heat
   will result in a favorable environment for a few severe storms
   capable of damaging wind gusts and some hail.  These storms will
   track eastward and approach the east coast by dark.  While damaging
   winds are the main threat, an isolated tornado or two cannot be
   ruled out.

         sfc cape 2000-2500 across northern VA.   less to the east, but that will rapidly increase

         supercell composite around 4 or so

         lapse rates in the 6 or so range, with 6.5 upstream

Line to the west is really booking it. Doesn't look that impressive right now, but maybe it strengthens as it heads east.

This line looks like crap

short terms models have been advertising that all day. i think most will see better stuff when the front moves through later. unless this line picks up some steam

this is just the discreet prefrontal squall line that will stabilize the atmosphere just in time for the cold front.

Line by Hagerstown seems to have strengthened significantly. Curious to see if the rest of the line follows suit.

Might salvage a good shelf cloud pic or two from this stuff.

For most of us, I think this will be the show.     And the line is moving into an area with decent shear and improving instability.    I'd expect further intensification.

What about this evening that LWX mentioned in their AFD and SPC mentioned in the 1630 OTLK?  Hit and miss storms?

              With this line being being more widespread than earlier thought, I think it's going to be more effective at wiping out instability over a larger area.   Also, the front isn't getting here until well after dark.    I had said earlier that I thought that the northern-most counties could be in the game around sunset (mainly based on the NAM nest), and maybe that's still possible, but the latest HRRR runs are not excited about the I-95 corridor until you get up into NJ.
