Tropical connection NYC forum area Sun-Wed, 8/2-5/20- Tropical Storm Isaias

Recommended Posts

The following is for information only. NOT media for rebroadcast. I'm borrowing from another highly reliable source, with whom I've not had time to discuss permission transmitting his information.  BUT... thisto highlight the seriousness of the on-going event to motivate concern. Short hammering event. Be smart when NWS issues the warnings. 

 
 
Isaias has been overperforming in terms of tornadoes, with many confirmed touchdowns overnight and this morning between NC and Delaware.  Tornado outbreaks in TCs often have a diurnal component, but temperatures staying around 80 (with dewpoints well into the 70s) northeast of the storm's center created sufficient instability to accompany the intense low-level shear and create a night/early morning outbreak.   Significant damage in Suffolk, VA, damage in southern MD and on the eastern shore, and a possible ongoing long-track event through central Delaware.     While the main area of interest right now is in DE/NJ shifting into southeast New England this afternoon, there are active tornado warnings as far north as New Hampshire, and SPC has issued an ENH risk for an area that includes NYC metro.

In 26 minutes, Philadelphia has picked up 1.17" rain. That brings the daily figure to 3.01". The daily figure surpassed the old record of 2.74", which was set in 1915.

The sarcastic backtrolling was funny maybe the first 3 times but can we move back onto the impending tornado outbreak

Yes it confusing for some of us. No time for humor right now. Don't expect to have power all day and no radio in the house. May all have to. move to basement.

That slug of moisture which I assume is the former eyewall is going to be a real problem for flash flooding in WCNJ.

the storm in 1915 was enhanced by a tropical wave from the west I think...flooding was the story with that storm...

Stupid question I always thought we look at the Velocity radars to look for tornado activity.  On several videos, I have seen meteorologists use the correlation coefficient radar that we usually use to look for the changeover line in a snow/sleet storm.  What is the difference?  Thank you in advance
