"Thoughts on Severe Weather Outbreak of June 16"
Well Hello!!! I am back from my wonderful trip to central Florida. Instead of listing my latest thoughts on the next severe weather outbreak, I will recap some of my afternoon points. I will leave the sections below for forecasting the severe weather outbreak. Again thanks for all of the daily weather observations, and it seems like I missed a busy weather week across the state. Though my area seemed to get spared all of the significant weather and left with only .11inches of rain. My vegetable garden looks amazing though and really grew while I was gone. I have almost two handfulls of small zuchinni still growing. I picked the rest of my radishes this morning and moved my cucumber plants where the radishes were because the cucumber plants were overcrowded in their original spots. It appears as if blueberries are developing along my blueberry bushes, and my pea and bean plants have many flowers soon to become vegetables. Also my herb plants are doing great. And my watermelon seeds have come up and are about 3-4inches tall. I have decided to put in two pepper plants where the lettuce plants were, as the lettuce plants did not withstand the heat and I decided to dig them out. I sure got quite alot of lettuce though over the spring, so they were definitely worthwile. My tomato plants have tons of small tomatoes that are now growing larger. Now onto weather news of my trip. Two reasons I love the weather is that it is always changing and there is always something new to learn. I saw some very interesting weather events, including a rotating severe thunderstorm. It was about evening and I was tired from the afternoon and decided to sit on the hotel balcony. I heard loud thunder in the distance along with interesting gust front cloud formations. I decided to head inside and turned on the local central Florida news to see what was going on. At that point only a severe thunderstorm warning was out for my area. Then I went back outside and watched the storm with some of the loudest thunder I have ever heard. Also the rain came down in tropical downpoors and even the brand new hotel I was in began to see water filter in under the doors in the six story lobby, which I was shocked to see. But anyway as the storm came to an end I noticed interesting clouds off in the distance to my south. The storm moved from northwest to southeast. I snapped a picture and then another. Upon further examination I noticed a possible funnel cloud off in the distance. Quickly I went back inside to see if there were any updates on the news, and just at that moment a tornado warning was issued for my area, and further south. I will post the pictures maybe later today. Also on my flight trip down to Florida I got some great cumulus and cirrus cloud pictures with the morning sunrise. Then on the flight home we hit the cold front coming through with some thunderstorms nearby. I saw a great lightning show from the plane window, but got no pictures. Our plane flew higher up than normal to avoid the convection. Other than some minor turbulence and some babies crying the flight went fine. There were some interesting notes about Florida though. It is a beautiful state, I have been there several times before, but what I noticed is the build up of so many single homes and condos. Many area forests were now contruction zones, which really bothered me. If any one was curious gas prizes are pretty much the same as they area here in Pennsylvania. So overall my trip was great, but I am happy to be home. I see there was a tornado in Venango County along with severe weather reports in almost every region of Pennsylvania. My county though reported no thunderstorms the entire week. Hopefully today I will have more sections updated, but for now I have some yardwork to do. Have a great Sunday!!!

"Current Weather Setup"
We have quite an interesting setup for severe weather. An upper level low riding along a weakly defined cold front moving south through the Great Lakes region. Meanwhile ahead of the cold front is a lee trough sitting in central Pennsylvania. Two areas of development look to be expected with storm development along the cold front in northwest Pennsylvania, and storm development along the lee trough. Currently this morning two weak complexes of rapidly weakening MCS are moving north and south of the state of Pennsylvania. Cloud cover is pretty sporadic across Pennsylvania. Sunshine is now out for about all regions. Dewpoint levels are rising, but yet not ideal for severe weather. But the upper levels are pretty moist this morning with PWATs near 1.1inches and slowly rising across central Pennsylvania and on eastward. Currently this morning there is also some CAP across the region with some higher CIN being indicated, but that should be diminishing as the day progresses. CAPE max values today I am not overly impressed with as values max out around 2000 j/kg in southeastern Pennsylvania. But here is what I am thinking. The models greatly overestimated cloud cover this morning with would intern inhibit high instibility. But since the sun is out for almost all regions except the Poconos, this would lead me to believe CAPE values to be higher than originally progged by the computer models. I expect CAPEs to possibly reach 2500 j/kg in the Lower Susquehanna and Delaware Valleys. The LI index is pretty low at around -8 near the Delaware Coastal Plain near Philadelphia. Freezing levels are very impressive for Mid June standards with them between 8000-10,000ft. Microbursts will be quite capable of large hail across Pennsylvania. Shear levels are very high as winds from the surface and aloft do not contain the same directions. Winds in this type of situation are frequent to contain gusts up to 70mph+ in the strongest of downdrafts. The lifting mechanism is also there today as the temperature contrasts between the two fronts is quite remarkable. Helicity and EHI values are relatively low today so I am not going to really mention the tornado threat all to much. There just not seem to be enough natural spin in the atmosphere. But as always tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Finally the combined severe weather index, SWEAT, is at over 350 in southcentral Pennsylvania. Typically when the SWEAT is over 300, supercellular development is possible. Along the lee trough is where bow echos and supercells can be expected. Back along the cold front looks to be more of a squall line. Stay tuned for more updates as the latest atmospheric soundings come in throughout the day.

"Model Analysis"
Models are in pretty good agreement with the playout of this event. But there are some strange features they are showing. For example the NMM simulated radar shows no storm development along the lee trough, but yet on the main cold front. Then it has the storms die out before they get east of the mountains. I do not think that will be our scenerio. In terms of severe weather indices they are in pretty good agreement, though I think they are underestimating the amount of surface CAPE that can be expected. Already values at 12z were reported near 1500 j/kg in the southern parts of Pennsylvania. Below are model runs for several severe weather indices from the morning 0z and 9z runs. Stay tuned for more updates on atmospheric soundings throughout the rest of the afternoon.

"My Forecast for Severe Weather"
So far I am pleased with my severe weather map. As usual after the severe weather event I will post a verification map. My map is in similar correspondance and agreement with the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma's outlook which has a moderate risk out for central and eastern Pennsylvania, with a slight risk for the western third of Pennsylvania. Hail and damaging winds appear to be the primary threats, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out due to the high shear levels across the region. Hail parameters show max levels near 2inches in the strongest of updrafts and keep in mind freezing levels in the atmosphere are near 9,000ft and as low as 8,000ft in the northern parts of Pennsylvania. Also keep in mind the winds at the surface are relatively light, but fast aloft so flash flooding could be a threat in the thunderstorms that develop ahead of the front. I think the area most at threat for severe weather is in the Lower Susquehanna Valley corridor up through the Upper Susquehanna Valley corridor. Stay tuned for more nowcast updates throughout the day.

"My Severe Weather Risk Map"


"Conclusions on Severe Weather Outbreak"
This could be a pretty widespread severe weather outbreak across Pennsylvania. What appears to be lacking is the low instibility due to potential cloud cover and the lower than adequate for severe weather, dewpoint levels. But I do think due to the convection not really forming in Ohio this evening, that cloud cover will not be as widespread as originally thought. From what I see wind damage could be pretty widespread. The SPC even has central Pennsylvania in a hatched area which means there is an additional 10% risk of significant severe weather within 25miles of any point. That was the forecast from the SPC from their day 2 12z outlook. I expect a moderate risk to be issued for central and eastern Pennsylvania from the SPC day 1 forecast that comes out early Monday morning. I will get all the updates out during Monday morning for the forecast for the day and I will monitor radar trends to provide short term updates. Also my severe weather outlook map will be issued Monday morning. Please stay alert to rapidly changing conditions tomorrow across all of the state of Pennsylvania. Keep your NOAA weather radio on and stay tuned to of course your NWS and my blog for continuing updates. Looking ahead to next week it looks as if temperatures significantly drop off to the low 70s and upper 60s for high temperatures as a steep trough moves in from the western United States. But by the weekend the trough appears to slowly move off allowing more normal temperatures to filter in. As for severe weather I believe June 16 is the last chance at an organized severe weather event for possibly a week or so. Stay tuned Monday for more updates. Have a great Sunday evening and happy father's day!!!

An Unknown Dreamscape (Blizzard92)
I took these pictures on my flight from Harrisburg, PA to Orlando, FL. I believe most of these cloud pictures came from over southern Pennsylvania and northern Maryland at an around 25,000ft altitude. Enjoy and use your imagination to think about what these clouds look like to you! I believe they look like an arctic landscape.

A Funnel Cloud? (Blizzard92)
At my stay in Orlando, Florida I witnessed a very strong thunderstorm. The storm had strong winds estimated at 40mph and rain rates over 5inches per hour. The thunder was the loudest I have heard in a long time with vivid lightning. I was on the resort balcony and say interesting clouds in the distance and quickly snapped some pictures. I believe these pictures to contain a funnel cloud. Also a tornado warning was out for the cell. See if you can spot the funnel.

charlesimages- Thanks. Also thanks for the post #64 cloud explanation. One thing I am not too familiar with is unusual clouds.




***Sorry no update today, but tomorrow I will have a verification map and a picture of my first lightning strike (not too great, lol) but I was happy with it. I had a busy day today which included some late vegetable gardening, decided to add some lady bell pepper plants. Also I think my next blog will be out by tomorrow afternoon. I have decided to take a little break from forecasting the weather and have the next blog on something a little different, yet still relating to weather, and by the way I am almost at my 50th blog so something special with be issued with that one. Have a wonderful evening!!!

Nice pics, Blizzard. Not too much in the way of storms here yesterday. Some wind, a few branches down, about .47" of rain at my place, but only about a tenth in Allentown.

BTW the storm pictures you got were on the underside of an outflow in post #64, that formation is called a Whale's Mouth

I like those pix too

WOW MAN! Those are some sweet pix! That looks a lot like a funnel to me! Such a bonus for you =) You go from not seeing a bunch of storms to funnels and heavy rain with lots of lightning! LOL

Great pix, thanks for sharing. Oh how I wish I could get over my fear of flying...

we had another storm go through late last night, just before midnight. It dropped another 0.12" of rain, for a total of 0.30" for the day. Not bad. I will take that. Hopefully, we can get something similar to that each week(not on weekends unless it is in the evening).

i was i hershey after the storm and they said they had some hail during the downpour with the 7pm storm

looks like we might get another line coming through. hopefully, a bit more rain.

cool looking pics Blizz. glad you didn't get to experience the funnel cloud first hand.

What a day! Near 50 reports of severe weather in Pennsylvania. Now for once not one warning out for any county in Pennsylvania. Currently a line of thunderstorms though is moving through central Pennsylvania and could produce maybe some pea sized hail along with heavy rain. And by the way in case no one has been outside this evening, take a walk outside. It is very chilly. Currently 58degrees here and falling. Have a great night!!! Verification map will be issued tomorrow morning.

Cool pictures. I have seen alot of clouds like this so far this summer.

Tonight I had a rotating cell moving at me from the west.(same storm that Shoveler had) Then a cell moved up from the south and it jogged north of me. Suddenly the clouds started coming south like the ones you took pictures of. I had posted a video of a storm like this last week. Except it had a rotating cloud hanging down.

Well I have not seen a good thunderstorm here north of Harrisburg since last year. It has been a relatively calm severe weather season across here in the Lower Susquehanna Valley, but quite active across northern Pennsylvania. What a day of severe weather though. My forecast was just about spot on. Tomorrow I will recap the event and issue a verification map. Also tonight I will post my Florida trip weather pictures. And below are my interesting cloud formation photos that I took this evening.

Unbelievable, the storm literally jumped my house. It came in strong as a bow echo. It hit the Susquehanna River and died, but then redeveloped to my south near Hershey, PA as a strong cored hail storm. Well I did get some really interesting cloud pictures I will be sure to post tonight, along with some high wind gusts up to 35mph. I still have to check my weather station to see what actually the gusts were. Lookout Lancaster County and Lebanon County, big hail storm coming. I hit the storm as it was in the midst of its pulsing stage.

Snowlover2010- Hey haven't heard from you in a while. Looking pretty great for storms. A developing bow segment of severe thunderstorms is headed eastsoutheast through Cumberland, Perry, Dauphin, Lebanon, Juniata, Union, Snyder, Blair, Huntingdon, and possibly into Adams, York, and Lancaster. Keep checking in throughout the night as these storms have a history of damaging hail and power lines downed.
