North American Mesoscale Model Verification on January 26-27...

The North American Mesoscale Model (NAM) is a high resolution model courtesy of the National Center for Environmental Prediction. Another very common and referenced name for the model is the Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF). They are the same model and run out to 84 hours. The purpose of the model is to run a higher resolution determining mesoscale features that often cannot be picked up by the global models due to their larger scale. The NAM can be run on an 80km resolution with a broad view of the United States, or 40km which allows the viewer to zoom in on a localized region to put up on mesoscale features. Also a very high resolution form of the NAM exists using a 12km parametric and can zoom into different states. The model is released four times a day at 0z, 6z, 12z, and 18z. Keep in mind that time is zulu or more commonly known as greenwich mean time.

Computer models are critical to forecasting the weather as they use parametric and other mathematical equations to derive the current and predicted state of the atmosphere using a physical and chemical explanation as the background for the predictions. The NCEP is associated with the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to be the developer of these computer models. Each meteorological organization worlwide uses their own developed computer models to serve as a basis for the forecasts. Without computer models, we are not able to derive predictions on the weather greater than 24 hours out.

Like all computer models, the NAM shows all layers of the atmosphere in maps determining positioning and speed of the jet stream, surface precipitation amounts (quantitive precipitation forecast QPF), temperatures throughout the entire core of the atmosphere, convective indices, simulated radars, etc. Due to the higher resolution of the NAM, several problems do exist. It often produces convective elements in many middle latitude cyclones and these are known as convective feedback problems. This is where it developed these unstable regions and often associates them as surface lows causing the surface depiction to be distorted. This was a problem in the recent prediction of the January 26-27 winter storm and will be noted below. Also the NAM has a tendency to produce higher than normal precipitation amounts. I typically find myself cutting totals nearly by 30% as shown on the NAM. Finally the NAM has a bias to overamplify a low pressure and close them off to early particularily on eastern United States cyclogenesis off the coast.

The January 26-27 winter storm featured many model headaches do to some interesting variables. Early on it appeared likely for a low pressure to track up inland along the coastal plain. There was a lacking 50/50 low, unfavorable position of the western trough axis, neutral NAO, natural baroclinicity along the coastline, and stale antecedent cold air mass. This would produce rain along I-95 with heavy snows inland. The 500mb synoptic pattern showed very strong signals for this time of setup with most computer model guidance also in support. The GGEM and ECMWF led the pack with the heavy snows from I-81 on westward. The GFS suffered major problems with varying solutions for each run. But then the computer models began to delay the storm. In fact it was delayed nearly 48-60 hours from the original starting time. This caused a different scenario to unfold. The lacking high pressure to the north was still a problem as the anticyclone zoomed east-northeast, but now a high pressure and associated shortwave out ahead of it allowed sunk east-southeast across the Midwest and western Great Lakes. This acted as a 'kicker' helping to push the cyclonegenesis farther off the coast. This in turn allowed for a colder scenario along with precipitation to occur farther east. Therefore a turn of events allowed for a major I-95 snowstorm with 6in+ totals from Washington DC to Boston. This was very fortunate for snow lovers in that corridor due to pure luck given the poor synoptic setup.

Given the NAM's high resolution, it often overanalyzes prognostics post hour 60. It tends to enhance QPF, overamplify lows, and pick up on mesoscale features that really do not exist. Therefore I typically throw out hours 60-84. It would be a rare event where you would find the NAM 84 hour verifying anywhere close to accurate. But in the near term range, the NAM does an excellent job locating temperature thermals, QPF ranges, and picking up on mesoscale features; coastal fronts, enhanced convection, deformation bands, etc. But in this recent storm, it suffered a plethora of problems and even the 6 and 12 hour surface maps had poor verification especially in the QPF department.

Let us first look at the actual accumulated precipitation totals for the storm.

Given this is a 24 hour accumulated precipitation amount, about .01-.1in of additional precipitation fell south of the Mason-Dixon line in the previous 24 hours.

Here are the preceeding NAM total QPF forecasts...


(January 24; 18z) (January 25; 6z)


(January 25; 12z) (January 25; 18z)


(January 26; 0z) (January 26; 6z)

As you can see, the NAM had a lot of variance with the northwestern sharp precipitation gradients. These tight gradients this year have been caused by the rapid intensification of the coastal lows allowing the heaviest moisture to be confined closer to the center of circulation. Also in this instance, a very cold and dry air mass along with associated cold front was quickly advancing southeast across the Great Lakes and was even picked up on by the 700mb RH charts. This allowed the flow out of the northwest to dry up some moisture for areas more inland.

The NAM simulated radar vs. the forecast QPF did not match up. Often the NAM simulated radar showed the heavier mesoscale bands lining up in northern Maryland and southern Pennsylvania where as it only showed total QPF to be .25in-.5in. In fact looking at total verification, the NAM did very well for its simulated radar.


(Actual NEXRAD National Radar) (6z NAM January 26 Simulated Radar)

The NAM did seem to have a hold on the 500mb map showing the negatively tilted trough producing the coastal low along with the placement of the upper level low and associated shortwave kicker just to the west.


(18z NAM January 24; 500mb) (0z NAM January 26; 500mb)

In general the differences in the 500mb maps were very subtle with just a general strengthening in the closed 500mb low, which verified a tad north of the January 24 18z model run.

The NAM did a very excellent job in identifying mesoscale band using the UUV/700mb RH charts.

(6z NAM January 26; 700mb)

It indentifed the enhanced snow growth over southeastern Pennsylvania up through New Jersey and New York City. The problems with the NAM generally existed in the QPF fields. The model likely suffered a very convective feedback issues in QPF totals. This is why it is important to note other maps than surface maps to help locate the heaviest precipitation. The 700mb map screamed that snow totals would be farther inland with the enhanced deformation band and UUV rates. In general the high resolution models handled this the best with the HRR scoring an amazing victory for QPF along with the ECMWF. The GFS/NAM did a very poor job for QPF, but as noted above QPF does not always tell the story. Sometimes it is important to note other layers of the atmosphere to help make a forecast. This point is why many forecasters missed the boat. Many forecasters (especially broadcoast meteorologists) are drawn to the easy to understand QPF/surface maps, but one has to look at all layers of the atmosphere to make a prediction.

So what are we looking for with this upcoming storm tonight into tomorrow? CTP is saying 1-3 with snow and freezing rain, but is this going to be tonight or tomorrow?

I have 4 friends coming down to Camp Hill from Huntingdon tomorrow afternoon for UFC 126 so this is one time where I'm hoping the weather cooperates. Knowing my luck, we'll end up getting a friggin blizzard out of this.


"YOU'RE FIRED"

TT - I'll also take letter A

zotty - Milwaukee's Best? really? my first 6 pack was Michelob Light - way back when it was like $3.25 a six. That was expensive back then. I can remember my Dad saying how can these kids afford such expensive beer. His six was something on the cost of $2.

on a serious side - I think Blizz got an internship at a TV station.

Also, 17.5" season to date per the Shippensburg University Weather department. "Average" (for what it's worth) is 36" so we're not quite half way there. We'll see though.

I also think these numbers mesh nicely with that Blizz has seen. He's a little higher up and has gotten some bonus accumulation a few times. Also, I question a couple tenths here and there on the measurements from the University crew, but I guess that's getting picky.

NWS is calling for 1-3 for Shippensburg....that would be fun. So far this season snow totals have been on the higher side of what CTP has called for about 85% of the time.

Or so it seems.

Hi everyone! Just got back from Canada and came home to downed tree limbs and an ice-encased snowpack. We got the snowstorm on Wednesday, which was a bonus. They haven't had as much snow as us this year or last. Very cold - from 0 degrees to 8 degrees.

Canadians are a hardy people - they were sitting leisurely outside at cafes with coffees and sandwiches like it was the middle of the summer. They don't salt most roads; it's the law for residents to have "winter tires," and they drive on whatever's left after plowing. We drove on snow the entire time. It was kind of fun, especially going up snow-covered hills.

Anyway - it's good to be home. Great to see all the pics of the ice storm and snows. And good to see you as you are now, Blizz. Can't wait to hear what the surprise is!

Yeah blizz, i have thought the same thing about dry vs wet snow melting. Dry snow deflates faster and the individual crystals will melt faster than wet snow crystals which are more bound to each other like one big unit. . Inevitably it all becomes moisture laden after a while. A new wet foot of snow will stick around longer than a new dry foot of snow after thawing/freezing.

Not to jump the gun...but I heard the mention of "triple phase" and incredible pressure drops with the 10th-11th storm....I'll be in Vermont skiing(watch us get the big one in Hbg. while I'm there...lol!) and am interested on insight to the potential on that one!

Triple phaser concept is just probably 'hype' from some overexcited people; the triple jet phase is very rare. There definitely is the potential for a significant low pressure somewhere east of the Mississippi River valley in that time period, but given the jet stream, it may come too far west.
Member Since: December 14, 2007 Posts: 281 Comments: 15082
TrentonThunder- Exactly, although I find wetter snows take quite a bit longer to 'disappear' than dry snows. The more moisture allows it to freeze overnight harder. With the more moisture content, it requires greater evaporation to eliminate the snow pack. In drier snows, the ice crystals quickly melt. Hence this is the reason much of the area has had a snow pack for a while given the wet nature.
Member Since: December 14, 2007 Posts: 281 Comments: 15082

Theres always sublimation, especially when the suns out. Most of melting even when temps are below freezing is from solar radiation, aka when the suns rays are pounding on the snow cover, and heats the surface higher than the air temperature and melts the snow. Its the same thing as in summer when the blacktop is burning hot and is hotter than the air temp. The snow melt is further increased when it becomes waterlogged and compacts even more. Snow will begin to melt faster as we move forward in time this season as the angle of the sun continues to get higher in the sky and its rays begin hit the surface at a more direct angle.

We had sunshine all day. Snow melting despite the fact temps stayed well below freezing. I'll never understand how that happens. Seeing grass for the first time since New Years when we had that thaw.


it's been way too long since I swung a club. some years we can play all year long. Just as long as it's not bitterly cold or it's raining or snowing.

the only grass i see is where i have cleared areas for my dog to do his business and have some area to move around. ever since our first snow this January we have had a snowpack and it isn't disappearing either.

Pittsburgnurse, I think that happens with the snow dissappearing despite the temps. staying below freezing, it's called, sublimation--where a solid turns into a gas directly, skipping the liquid phase. Blizz could explain it better than I can.

I see the new picture right now, lol. The shingled building is actually at the top of Mt. Washington next to the sign that says the fastest wind speed was recorded by man at this point (which is no longer true).

I went to a driving range in Toms River yesterday and hit 2 large buckets. (Cabin Fever) Every shot was right down the middle! (not)


Did you grab a brew from Boston's afterward? Go down that way all the time. Coach Challenger kids at the TRELL complex.
