Record flooding continues in the Northeast from Irene's torrential rains. Hardest hit was Vermont, where heavy rains in the weeks prior to Irene's arrival had left soils in the top 20% for moisture, historically. Irene dumped 5 - 8 inches of rain over large sections of Vermont, with a peak of 11.23" at Mendo. The reading from Mendo was the greatest single-day rainfall in Vermont's history, according to wunderground's weather historian Christopher C. Burt, beating the 9.92" that fell at Mt. Mansfield on 9/17/1999 during the passage of Tropical Storm Floyd. The 13.30" that fell on East Durham, NY during Irene was just shy of New York State's all-time 1-day rainfall record: 13.70" at Brewster on 9/16/1999, from Tropical Storm Floyd.


Figure 1. Wunderphotographer 43BJAGER recorded this image of a house in Sharon, Vermont, that started out the week on the other side of this underpass.

According to the final Hurricane Irene summary from the NWS, the storm dropped 20" of rain in two locations, one in North Carolina and one in Virginia. Here are the highest rain amounts from the hurricane for each state:

Virginia Beach, VA: 20.40"
Jacksonville, NC: 20.00"
East Durham, NY: 13.30"
Freehold Twp, NJ: 11.27"
Mendon, VT: 11.23"
Ellendale, DE: 10.43"
New Hartford, CT 10.15"
Baxter St. Park, ME: 9.91"
Savoy, MA: 9.10"
Lafayette, PA: 8.82"
Pinkham North, NH: 7.33"
Warren, RI: 5.37"

Tropical Storm Katia forms
Tropical Storm Katia formed this morning in the far Eastern Atlantic off the coast of Africa. Katia will be in a moist, low wind shear environment with ocean temperature 1 - 2°C above the threshold needed to support a hurricane, and should be able to intensify to major hurricane strength when it passes to the north of the Lesser Antilles Islands 5 - 6 days from now. It is possible that some of the outer spiral bands of the storm might bring heavy rain squalls to the northern Lesser Antilles, but it would be a surprise if the core of the storm passed through the islands. The long term fate of Katia is unknown. Dr. Bob Hart's Historical Tropical Cyclone Probability web page suggests shows that tropical storms in Katia's current position have a 19% chance of hitting North Carolina, a 16% chance of hitting Canada, an 11% chance of hitting Florida, and a 47% chance of never hitting land.


Figure 2. The morning run of the GFS Ensemble prediction. The ensemble prediction was done by taking a lower-resolution version of the GFS model and changing the initial distributions of temperature, pressure, and humidity randomly by a few percent to generate an ensemble of 20 different computer projections of where Katia might go. The operational (highest-resolution) version of the GFS model (white line) is usually more accurate, but the ensemble runs give one an idea of the uncertainty in the forecast.

Katia is the 11th named storm this year, and comes a full twelve days before the half-way point of the Atlantic hurricane season. Climatologically, September 10 marks the half-way point. A typical hurricane season has just 10 - 11 named storms, so we've already had a whole season's worth of storms before reaching the half-way point. At this rate, 2011 will see 25 named storms, making it the 2nd busiest season on record, behind 2005. Katia's formation date of August 30 puts 2011 in 5th place for earliest date of arrival of the season's 11th storm. Only 2005, 1995, 1936, and 1933 had an earlier 11th storm.

Gulf of Mexico development possible late this week
Several of our best computer models for predicting formation of tropical cyclones, the GFS and ECMWF, are predicting that an upper level pressure interacting with a tropical wave now over the the Western Caribbean could combine to spawn a tropical depression in the Gulf of Mexico late this week or early next week. The formation location is likely to be off the coast of Louisiana or Texas, but the track of the system is hard to predict at this point.


Figure 3. Portlight volunteer Thomas Hudson clears a driveway yesterday in Hollywood, Maryland.

Portlight disaster relief effort in Maryland
Hurricane Irene heavily damaged the town of Hollywood, Maryland, when a tornado cut off electric power, water, and phone service. Portlight and Team Rubicon volunteers arrived before emergency personnel, after following up on a local tip. What they found was an isolated area whose plight was unknown to the larger community. Most residents were trapped at their homes by heavy debris. Portlight and Team Rubicon worked for two days to clear paths to each address, extract vehicles from debris, and cut down trees that constituted safety hazards. Portlight also instructed local residents how to operate and maintain chainsaws and safely clear debris. No other volunteer organizations or emergency personnel arrived at any time, and Portlight succeeded in meeting the specific needs of the underserved, unserved, and forgotten. Visit the Portlight blog to learn more; donations are always welcome.

I'll have a new post on Wednesday discussing if the evacuations and media hype surrounding Irene were excessive.

The program improves forecast accuracy. That saves lives and allows individuals and businesses to make plans to try to minimize losses. Suspect the cost/benefit ratio of the program rather good. Perhaps the 'unnecessary expense' here might be Congressional salaries. Approval ratings around 14%. They should get an 86% pay cut. When approval ratings improve, though performance, pay might rise. One can dream.

From Crown Weather:
"Looking beyond Katia, the very long range model guidance hints at a tropical cyclone tracking into the Caribbean right around September 13. This is not so far fetched as we may be headed into a pattern shift that involves a stronger high pressure ridge that lasts for 10 to 15 days during the middle part of September before the whole fall weather pattern kicks in by late September and early October. This shift in the weather pattern will have to be monitored very closely over the coming weeks as it may leave the entire Caribbean and southeastern United States coastline wide open to tropical cyclone landfalls for a two to three week period."

"My thinking this morning is for a track that is further west than the operational guidance and for a hurricane that turns north somewhere around 70 West Longitude next Thursday. Should this happen, this would put eastern New England and the Canadian Maritimes at a significant risk from a hurricane next weekend."
Your thoughts?

Where did those numbers come from? Seems hard to beleave. I did see a FOX news blurb about 1 smart bonb costing 750,000.00 and a "dumb" bomb ONLY costing 200,000.00 and one cip of amo for i rifle costing 100.00 $.

That is literally the worst news article ever published. How is there even an argument? While the NWS is not perfect with their forecasts, they are without a doubt, the best source.

The unintelligent journalist also completely misses the fact that they provide and make readily (freely) accessible ALL OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE (thermometers, barometers, anemometers, wind vanes, radiosondes, rawinsondes, dropsondes, buoys, weather observing aircraft, polar orbiting satellites, geostationary satellites, statistical and dynamic models) needed for both the private sector and the NWS to make their forecasts.

Morning, Everyone. Looks like we might be getting the rain we need in TX/LA. However, let's keep it to just the rain and not the winds. Think I'll do some shopping and top off the supplies just in case. Question, if it forms into something, about when would it make landfall? I've a dog show to go to this weekend and don't want to be caught away from my kids. (Granted the youngest is 16 and the oldest is 27, but... A mother is always a mother. Add the oldest is a disabled vet and the middle has a serious heart condition) Tends to make me a little on the protective side.

CAUTION: Reported maximum winds and rainfall totals for hurricanes like Irene are often incorrect, incomplete, or misleading. Here are some common problems, how to identify them, who or what caused them, and how might we prevent these problems in the future.

DISCLAIMER: This is not about politics, private vs public, global warming, biases in research, etc. This is about the validity of the weather data we use -- is it accurate, reliable, robust, comparable, and complete.

Sorry -- accidentally posted too soon. Rest in a couple of minutes.

Another thing about Katia is that she will be with us for about the next 10 days. People have been saying all year long that our ACE has been below average - and rightly so - but thanks to Irene we are now above average ACE-wise for the season so far, and Katia should give us another big ACE boost.

That's true. In fact, this year's ACE will surpass 1997's entire number tomorrow, and (most likely) 2009's by the weekend. It's been quite a year.

Speaking of which: looks like three candidates making their way through the African cyclone assembly line:

The political narrative is becoming clear in my mind. The goal of the hype pumping narrative is to discredit a very savvy governmental organization that saves lives and uses US taxpayer monies very effectively.

It is a shame.

Sadly, it is the exception rather than the norm today. The author just picked a source that is near and dear to many here in perhaps his overzealous quest to reduce spending.

NASA's already been cut. There are sure to be more casualties to come when our govt. is spending in the following fashion (the ratios are accurate):

Annual family income: $21,700
Money the family spent: $38,200
New debt on the credit card: $16,500
Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
Total budget cuts: $385

(add eight zeroes to make it applicable to our collective fiscal crisis)

I agree false arguments shouldn't be used to reduce spending. Honesty above all else. No mainstream outlet has the guts to be honest anymore (with rare exception).

Anyway, back to the tropics...

Tropical storm Katia continues to suffer a bit from northeasterly winds aloft. These winds are restricting outflow to the northeast, inflicting some wind shear, and creating a slightly dry upper to mid atmosphere to the northeast. Convection has remained fairly deep, although Katia currently lacks significant new thunderstorm bursts. As a result, cloud tops have warmed ever so slightly and satellite intensity estimates have corresponded by dropping slightly. New bursts of convection should reappear soon, however. Otherwise, there is plenty of moist air, SST are warm enough, and divergence and shear are decent over the system although best to the SW and worst to the NE.


Looking at the environment ahead, SSTs and TCHP will be on the increase for the next five days. A moist low to mid level environment will also be present. The only factors working to inhibit development will be the upper level environment. An upper level anticyclone is still yet to be firmly established aloft. However, this issue should resolve itself within the next two days. Shear will tank, and upper divergence will soar in the process. Beyond three days, a large, elongated upper level low which will branch off from the TUTT will slightly raise shear values and lower upper divergence. This issue will most likely prevent Katia from undergoing any significant intensification by the weekend, although it shouldn't cause the storm to weaken either. Overall, the warm SSTs, moist environment, and good upper level environment should allow Katia to easily become our second major hurricane of the year.

As far as track, this is mostly a concern for Bermuda and Canada, but the NE Caribbean islands and NE US states should watch this storm before writing it off.
