"Thoughts on Severe Weather Outbreak of June 26"
Alrighty well a several day period of chances of severe weather is headed our way all leading up to the potentially major outbreak of severe weather for this coming Saturday and Sunday. For Thursday it will begin with the pattern of unsettled weather with isolated severe weather across Pennsylvania. In the sections below will be further explanations of the setup. For now I would like to recap June 23's severe weather. I was yet again taken by surprise as severe weather was not as widespread as I anticipated. The June 22-23 severe weather days were pretty isolated to scattered about the region. Myself and most weather services including the storm prediction center made some pretty bad forecasts in that time period. I issued a moderate risk for most of the region, but it was not necessary. A slight risk would have been more of a solution. But one thing that I did learn is that CAPE values below 1500 j/kg and unsignificant triggering mechanisms really do limit severe weather potential. For June 23 scattered to numerous thunderstorms formed over Ohio and moved into western Pennsylvania. Many severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for large hail. But overall there were just a scattering of hail reports around penny sized hail. As evening approached the storms weakened over central Pennsylvania as instibility was not too awfully high there. By mid evening thunderstorms moved into the Lower Susquehanna Valley where as usuall has the highest instibility in the state of Pennsylvania. Thunderstorms restrengthened. In Adams County 1.75inch diameter hail was reported along with wind damage. In York County over 1000 people were without power. And in Dauphin and Lebanon Counties wind damage was reported in some areas with trees down. Something interesting to note though is the NWS did not issue warnings in Dauphin and Lebanon County and still yet tree damage occured. In my opinion the storm was quite visible on the reflectivity radar to have strong indications have high winds. But still weather is an inexact science where mistakes are made everyday. Anyway the line of thunderstorms moved into Berks, Chester, Montgomery, and Bucks Counties where some wind damage reports did occur. Below is my verification map with all of the storm reports that occured and all of the warnings that were issued during the event. I was not too pleased with my forecast.


"Current Weather Setup"
Pretty typical summertime setup for some severe pulse thunderstorms. The question remains and this is can we get enough sun. That appears likely as in many areas including mine the sun is already out. The CAP we slowly dissapear today and with rising CAPE levels. Shear levels are pretty low and around 20-30knots which could make for some gusty winds with thunderstorms. Freezing levels are around 12,000ft which could make it possible for some small hail. Helicity values and EHI indices are a little higher than normal so some rotation could be possible with a cell or two. A shortwave over Illinois will push into Ohio later today. Meanwhile a departing MCV is moving east out in the Atlantic after already laying down some weak boundaries. Storms should fire later today, but widespread activity is not expected. Dewpoints are higher than they have been than earlier this week with that severe weather. PWATs are extremely high over eastern Pennsylvania at around 1.9inches. Heavy rain is also a threat today. Overall each day should have an increasing number of storms leading up to the big event on Sunday. Stay tuned for updates throughout the day.

"Model Analysis"
As usual models are having some convective feedback problems. The question with the Thursday event is where will the MCS go and even if there is a MCS. Most models seem to indicate a MCS moving across northern Pennsylvania then moving possibly through central Pennsylvania. The track is a little uncertain. The 18z NAM has brough the MCS a little farther south than earlier runs. And the GFS has the storm moving across northern Pennsylvania. The NMM model does not show a complex at all. The reason so much is dependent on the track of the MCS is where the MCS goes is where there will be much more stable air. CAPE values are though still progged near 2000 j/kg in some areas of Pennsylvania according to the GFS and NAM. The NMM model shows its simulated radar of showing some severe segments of thunderstorms across the region. Looking at shear values they are highest over the northern parts of the state. SWEAT values though are highest over southwestern Pennsylvania where the best instibility appears to be located. EHI values are much higher than normal for northern Pennsylvania nearing 2-3. Across eastcentral Pennsylvania values are also 1-2. So this appears like tornadoes may be an isolated threat. The MCS will also lay down boundaries for where the storms will form as if they will be the triggering mechanisms. Overall I am not impressed with the event and it appears like severe weather should not be too widespread. Clouds will be the main inhibiting factor. It may even turn out that the only severe weather may be associated with the morning MCS. The morning MCS is capable of intense lightning, heavy rain, and isolated damaging winds. Tomorrow morning I will have an update as the MCS will be visible for what its affects are for Thursday. There is even a chance a MCS does not even develop. Stay tuned.

"My Forecast for Severe Weather"
Below is my severe weather map. I have issued a slight risk of severe weather for much of the state, excluding the northeastern sections. In the northeastern parts I have included a 75% risk of typical thunderstorms which also means a 5% risk of isolated severe weather. The entire state is basically under the gun for some isolated severe weather. Nothing of any organization should be expected also nothing widespread should be anywhere. Damaging winds and large hail are the primary threats with todays convection. But again an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out as helicity values are a little bit higher than normal. But overall shear levels are low and only 20-30knots aloft which is pretty weak and may just make for some brief gusty winds of perhaps 40mph. Cloud cover is over much of the state this morning, but breaks are forming and here north of Harrisburg the sun is out at times. Dewpoints are pretty high, but some dry air aloft is moving in and I expect dewpoints to drop throughout the day. Overall today there is not much of a triggering mechanism except a weak shortwave that is currently over Ohio may spark thunderstorms in western Pennsylvania. The highest threat of severe weather today is over southwestern Pennsylvania. Stay tuned for more updates throughout the day.

"Conclusions on Severe Weather Outbreak"
Looking ahead we are in a very active period for unsettled weather including severe storms. For Friday CAPE values go over 2000 j/kg in southern Pennsylvania combined with near 90degree heat and near 70degree dewpoints I can see how severe weather could be a threat. There is not really a triggering mechanism. But any pulse thunderstorm that develops could be capable of severe weather. The SPC has the state in a 5% risk of severe weather for Friday with the main severe threat to the west in the midwest and Ohio Valley. For Saturday an approaching front will be headed in the northeast's direction. Saturday high temperatures will soar to 90degrees in southern Pennsylvania. Elsewhere temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s. Dewpoints across the state should be in the upper 60s to low 70s. It is too far out too see if clouds will inhibit severe thunderstorms, but at this point I would say ample sunshine should be available. The strong cold front is ahead of another upper level trough that will drop temperatures back to seasonal values along with drier air. CAPE values for Saturday are near 3500 j/kg according to the NAM. The GFS is still high though around 3000 j/kg. Looking at any CAP to the environment and there is no CAP that should preclude any convective development. Also the SREF model shows 2000 j/kg over southern Pennsylvania for Saturday. Timing with the front is uncertain at this point, but the closer the front the higher the shear and helicity values are. The SPC is taking the Days 4-8 outlook and highlighting Pennsylvania in the Day 4&5 outlooks. The uncertainty of the fronts timing kept severe weather chances in for Saturday and Sunday. Also some models show slowing of the front around central Pennsylvania. All in all it looks like a pretty hefty widespread severe weather outbreak will be headed towards Pennsylvania. More updates will be coming with a new blog each day for Friday, Saturday, and possibly Sunday highlighting each day's severe weather threat. Have a wonderful Wednesday and Thursday!!!

hurigo, i had a great time in avon this weekend. sunday and tuesday were great weather days.
saturday evening we saw a funnel cloud over the sound.
it was amazing how more crowded avon is starting to get on the beach. not nearly as crowded as the delmarva beaches and maybe because of the silly beach closings because of one bird.

Well my forecast today was very successful. I am though a little surprised to see an organized line of storms. Also some metro areas have been hit pretty hard today with nickel sized hail in Erie and wind damage in Pittsburgh.

Blizz,

My confidence in tornados is not as high as it was yesterday. Today's models seem to want to curl the main dynamics with this storm to our northwest. Wind threat is certainly there and flash flooding threat. But as for tornados, less likely in today's models than yesterday's.

hurigo- Yes and there does appear to have a chance of tornadoes. Shear levels are pretty high along with helicity. For example here is a map showing tornado chances based on the NAM model. There are some pretty high indications of tornadoes after looking at this map.

hurigo- Well does not appear the best of weekends at the bay. Sun should be out with some hit or miss thunderstorms for Saturday. Pretty hot outside, but bay breeze should keep things cooler. For Sunday a little cloudier with the threat of some severe storms along with a gusty southwest wind. Waves heights around 5ft max on the northern sections of the bay. It should not be a washout by any means, but still some storms should be around.

sullivanweather- I am ready to hear your latest thoughts for this weekend...

Hello Blizz,
Thanks for keeping up the forecasts.
I hope the weather your way is okay, but I do see you've posted some warnings.

When things settle down a bit, could you give me a forecast for this weekend along the Chesapeake Bay?

dean2007- Cold front will move through with very fast winds aloft over 50knots. High shear values, high 2500 j/kg CAPE, high helicity, things are really looking impressive for widespread severe weather including a few tornadoes. Could start off with supercells then become linear. But at this point exact details are sketchy.

Ok Blizzard thanks! I will watch tomorrow's pulse severe type storms, also I will watch Sunday's event. What will happen then?
21. Zachary Labe
8:42 PM GMT on June 26, 2008
dean2007- Well I read their discussion and I am not saying I am going to agree with them. I do not see an organized widespread severe weather event for Friday in New England. A very weak backdoor cold front should stall in central New York State which should be a focal point in New England for storms. But nothing should be too organized. More of just a typical severe pulse thunderstorm type event. Watchout Sunday though!

NWS in Taunton, MA is really interested for the Friday chances of severe weather here in SE MA for some reason. Do you have any thoughts why?

the only thing that supposedly works is a net to keep them off the bush.
a durable, synthetic netting, often made of nylon and treated to resist deteriation from uv radiation. tie the net around the base of the plant and using scrap wood supports to keep it off the bush. just before and only until the harvest.
btw-a plant 6-8 years old may produce up to 10 qts of fruit per.
each mature bush may have a spread of 4'-5'.

WeatherBobNut- Good morning! Well I hope you are here Sunday to help forecasting for the severe weather outbreak, it could be very significant. Have a great day and I am already counting down to winter (got a super big new snowblower), lol!

TheRasberryPatch- Alright I will keep my eye out, any ideas to keep them away.

like i said in the past, Blizz, the birds like to attack the plant just before you are ready to pick them. and they usually get them with your back turned. : )

Hi guys, Weather Bob here; i hope your summer is going well so far. Thunderstorms should get going starting today across much of the area! Saturday and Sunday concerns me for a few Tornado watches or warnings, i'll be watching for updates Blizz....i'll be back in full force come winter time, but lets enjoy the warmth for now. Take care Blizz, Sully, Dean, ras,spetrm, tty all soon.

TheRasberryPatch- I have about 25 berries that still are not ready for picking. I had no bird problems this year, but I did keep a watchful eye to see if any where eyeing up the berries. My neighbors have a blueberry bush too and they have had no bird issues either. I guess I fertillized once this year and I did place mulch around the base of the plant. Also I use my rain barrel water to water the plant as I had heard that the bushes like acidic soil. Thanks for your help!

yes they will Blizz. they will grow, too. and hopefully, get more blossoms next year.
did you get some good berries? what did you do to keep the birds away?

fertlize 2 or 3 times a year. your next time should be early July. they love acid soil. prune once a year. make sure they have plenty of water. they don't compete well for water with weeds. either mulch or keep well cultivated. I am reading and prune any diseased or broken wook. it says that most plants should be allowed to bear up to a pint of fruit (20 to 30 flower buds). remove any additional. after 2-5 years concentrate on producing healthy bushes and not fruit production. be on the lookout for diseases and insects.

sullivanweather- Yep Sunday now appears to be the worst day of the severe weather. Parameters are pretty impressive.

TheRasberryPatch- Got a gardening question for you... This may sound dumb but honestly I do not know the answer. Will my blueberry bushes come back up next year?

JDinWPA- Thanks. .01inches of rain here from the same storm that hit you. The sun is now coming out now.

Good morning Bliz. Had .5" of rain overnight. Nothing severe with it, well, at least nothing strong enough to wake me up! That brings me up to 4.11" mtd. Looks like the second half of June is going to be much wetter than the first half.

As much as we love the weather, it seems like some here enjoy the severe weather a bit too much. I guess I grew up fearing severe weather because of the damage it can inflict. I for one would prefer mild storms with no tornados and a thunderstorm that is nice to view, but no damage.
I am not judging anyone, just find it a bit weird that some want severe weather to view and report.

Hey Blizz!

Sunday is looking to be our big day here. Looks like there'll be a tornadic element to deal with as well.

Interesting times ahead...

dean2007- Thanks! Well there you go some severe weather on Cape Cod. I did see like the entire section of eastern MA covered in storm reports yesterday. Did you get a watch? For tomorrow upstate NY to me looks like tomorrow's hotspot for severe weather. The highest shear levels are there, but cloud cover could be an inhibiting factor. For tomorrow I really do not think severe weather will be too widespread. For Cape Cod I do not think you will get in on the severe storms. You should be stable enough to preclude most storms. But looking ahead towards Saturday and maybe Sunday for your area severe weather could be widespread including your region.

Spetrm- That is crazy for golf ball sized hail. Just about two counties over golf ball sized hail was reported. Overall though compared to last year there has been very little severe weather in Pennsylvania. In the summer we get alot of severe weather, but nothing significant like 2inch hail or tornadoes. Last year though severe weather was crazy in the month of June.

Great Photos Blizzard. I wish I had a working camera yesterday man. We had huge lightning strikes off in the distance, training storms, we received about an inch of rain according to dopplar radar, pea sized hail at my house and in Barnstable, MA they received 1" sized hail. It was amazing! What are your thoughts for tomorrow's event here in New England?

Seems like ya guys can't catch a break up there. Good luck. I got reports just south of buffalo a few days ago of gulf ball size hail. Pretty crazy for that far north.
