2022 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx Thread (General Discussion Etc)


Recommended Posts

Some really nice lightning and thunder here now. Loud cracks and rolling rumbles following. Let's see how long these training lines setup for and if they stay over the same general areas. Could be a long night for local first responders.

Outside a tropical system, I can’t really recall a straight north to south storm movement scenario in the past like we are seeing today…very unique

I said the said thing earlier! Was wild watching storms roll out out of due north.

Discussion...The regional radar mosaic this evening depicts
rapidly expanding shower and thunderstorm coverage across the
Mid-Atlantic. This convection is developing along three distinct
boundaries: a cold front approaching from the northwest, a
stationary front wavering across the Mid-Atlantic, and an 850mb
confluence axis/trough. The primary focus is likely to become
oriented from N-S across central MD, including the I-95 corridor,
as easterly flow from the Atlantic and westerly flow from the warm
sector over the Appalachians converges into the stationary
boundary. This is likely already occurring as noted by a rapid
intensification in reflectivity along the boundary within
impressive PWs measured by the 00Z U/A soundings at KWAL and KIAD
of 1.89 and 2.12 inches, respectively, near or above daily records

I can confirm extensive tree/power line damage in and around warrenton/northern fauquier county. The wind was unreal. Probably the worse I’ve experienced in this area. Ironically I think a lot of us slept on the severe threat compared the the flood threat. But today I’d say we over performed in the severe category. Maybe not area wide but today produced significant damage locally.
