Hurricane Agnes

E PA/NJ/DE Spring 2020 OBS Thread

Recommended Posts

Might as well kick off meteorological spring with a soon-to-be-transient arctic air mass overhead.  Bottomed out here this morning at 26 and it's currently 27 and clear but breezy.  Dews are relative dry in the low teens around this area (mine is 13F).

Made it up to a high of 43 yesterday and bottomed out at 31 this morning but the warm up is underway with the SWerly flow.  Already up to 47 with cirrus overhead.

Spring fever is in the air! 43F here so far.

I can handle the cold as long as there's snow involved, otherwise at this point, 40's at least would be fine. Today was real nice.

Don't know about elsewhere, but it's been pretty windy here at times tonight. Forecast was for 10-15 mph winds but there had to be gusts up to 25 or 30. We had a kettle fire tonight and the wind in the trees was roaring at times.

Marginal risk today for severe thunderstorms in the area:

 

...Central Appalachians to Mid-Atlantic this afternoon/evening...
   A northern stream shortwave trough will translate from the MS Valley
   to the OH Valley today, and reach the Mid-Atlantic and New England
   tonight.  An associated surface cyclone will deepen from the lower
   Great Lakes into New England, while a trailing cold front moves
   eastward off the Mid-Atlantic coast by early tonight.  In the wake
   of weakening morning convection and a remnant MCV near southern WV,
   a few cloud breaks and some low-level warming/moistening will
   contribute to weak buoyancy in advance of the cold front from WV
   into parts of PA/VA this afternoon/evening.  Broken bands of storms
   will be possible this afternoon along the front, and the convection
   will spread east-northeastward toward NJ by late evening.  Assuming
   sufficient near-surface destabilization, wind profiles will favor
   organized bowing segments and supercells with some threat for
   isolated damaging gusts and a tornado or two.

And only two days into met spring!   Maybe it's a good sign...for all the severe weather this area had last year, I didn't get any good photos of lightning.  Need something more than just big rain producers.

I can hear the wind howling through the windows here.

The heavy rain is banging against the glass.

 

Still not as good as snowstorm.

Didn't seem to have any detectable lightning or thunder with it but the winds were tight and strong.  You'll hear them if that line holds together.

Got slammed here with a huge 18 mph wind.  lol  Yeah, got nothin!

There was a gap over the southern part of the line.  North of you the line seems to still be intact!  There's also a cell just north of DIX.

Had a gust to 48 MPH at my house, not too shabby. Picked up .4" of rain. We get the whiff this weekend that will bring some light rain/possibly snow tv showers. Next system after that looks to in the March 12th time frame. Since I'll be in Florida at that time, I'm predicting this is the one we finally get nailed with snow. Probably a MECS like the 6z GFS. lol
