Wet subtropical storm possible for Florida this weekend

A large low pressure system with heavy rains is expected to develop over Cuba and South Florida on Saturday. The counter-clockwise flow around this low will bring strong winds and heavy rains to much of the Florida coast on Saturday, and these conditions will spread northwards to Georgia by Sunday and South Carolina by Monday. Most of the models develop this system into a tropical or subtropical storm, but the potential location of such a storm is still murky. The ECMWF model predicts the storm will form in the eastern Gulf of Mexico on Monday, then move north into the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday. If this track verifies, the oil rigs off the coast of Southeast Louisiana may experience a one or two day period of sustained winds above tropical storm force Monday or Tuesday. The GFS and NOGAPS models put the storm on the other side of Florida, over the Northwestern Bahamas, and predict the storm will move northwards and hit North Carolina on Wednesday. The UKMET model is in-between, developing the storm right on top of Florida. Since the storm is going to be getting its start as a cold-cored upper-level low pressure system with some dry air aloft, it will probably start out subtropical, with a large band of heavy rain developing well north of the center, bringing heavy rains to a wide region of the Southeast U.S. Subtropical storms cannot intensify quickly, due to their lack of an organized inner core. If the storm follows the path of the GFS model, it could be similar to Subtropical Storm Four of October 4, 1974. That storm brought 10 - 14 inches of rain to the east coast of Florida and strong onshore winds of 30 - 40 mph that caused beach erosion and coastal flooding. The extended forecast discussion from NOAA's Hydrometeorological Prediction Center has a more technical discussion of this coming storm for those interested.

Tropical Storm Philippe no threat to land
In the middle Atlantic, Tropical Storm Philippe is about to interact with a frontal system and turn northeastward out to sea. Satellite loops show Philippe is a small system with a modest amount heavy thunderstorm activity, with the surface circulation partially exposed to view by wind shear. Wind shear will remain in the moderate range today, which may allow the storm to intensify into a hurricane, as predicted by several of the intensity forecast models. By Thursday, wind shear will rise to a very high 30 - 50 knots, which should cause rapid weakening. Philippe will not trouble any land areas.

Afternoon all,

Odds are that a sub-tropical storm will form next week off Florida from that frontal boundary. The models are shifting back and forth with what scenario to believe, as the 12z GFS and 12z ECMWF now both say that this will move into the Gulf, perhaps strengthening just off the coast of Tampa. This system will more than likely attempt to gain a fully tropical core, but I do not see a hurricane out of this. If you want to see another major hurricane, the Western Caribbean is your best bet. A VERY intense MJO upward phase is going to come through this basin mid-month, we will probably see at least 2-3 systems form in there this month.


I hope something will come to water us :)

Nuts. I have my golf club championship in Orlando this weekend, I got my mother-in-law to come up from Naples to help with my 3-year-old while I'm out, and I may have just wasted a favor if we get washed out.

Ah, but the joy of having your mother-in-law there will outweigh that! :}

We can handle around 14 inches of rain here at one time in south Florida with out it becoming a problem. Anything over 14 inches though we will have major flooding.

Subtropical Storm Rina seems very likely out of this situation.

Don't have to be an expert to know that.

I'm expecting Tropical/Subtropical storm conditions as early as the weekend into nearly next week. Will be interesting. Again, the season is NOT by any means close to over, we still have 2-5 possible systems left. I think we may get to the Greek Alphabet once again this year.

On another note... do you have info on when NAM Para would replace the current version? I though Sept. 20th, but appears that wasn't the case.


They had a last minute glitch and postponed it on Sept 19th. Latest from the NCEP Synergy Meeting Highlights: September 26, 2011:

NAM

A 2 week parallel for the latest set of changes is ongoing. The changes fix a failure of the fire weather nest run and a model output problem causing too weak vertical velocity to be displayed. SPC and AWC are encouraged to check the output. Implementation is scheduled for 12 UTC 18 October.


However the Technical Implementation Notice has not yet been updated to reflect that new date.

local weather guys are beginning to prep us for this coming weekend, one suggested with a stalled sub or tropical storm because of that large high to the north we Could..see 7-10 inches of rain, possibly more..now thats alot of rain, street flooding etc for sure..add TS winds and tree's could come down due to the soggy soil...whew gotta clean out the gutters etc lol..


Keep in mind, this isn't the northeast, 7 to 10 inches of rain is nothing we can't handle, I live in a low lying area in Pinellas, we don't really see significant flooding till rainfall hits 8 to 10 inches in one day. Also trees are very strong here, even after hours hours of strong tropical storm strength winds (50 to 70 mph with a brief period of slightly higher) from Frances and Jeanne, as well as a combined 16 inches from both storms, there were still not many fallen trees. We actually saw more power line damage then tree damage, because the old power grid built by Florida power is still in place, which is a pretty weak system. The new power company is better, but we are still feeling the effects.
Tampa's is worse than ours though, TECO sometimes does things with their high voltage lines that scares me, like very weak supports, and sometimes massive transmission lines, 100 to 300 kv running at unusually low altitudes right in the city.


Unlike the East Coast of Florida, we have actually had above normal rainfall in many spots along Florida's West Coast, so the ground is still quite wet. There will probably be some isolated wind damage and some street flooding if a nice low spins up on the gulf side.

Our local T.V. meteorologist just mentioned "heavy rain expected this weekend."

Last night, she was just saying "increased chance of rain this weekend."

Who knows what she'll be saying this time tomorrow?

.LONG TERM...SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...TOUGHEST PART OF THIS
FORECAST PACKAGE. LONG RANGE MODELS SHOW A WEAK UPPER LOW
DEVELOPING JUST SW OF THE LOCAL AREA BY FRIDAY NIGHT AND MOVING
SLOWLY WESTWARD. ACCORDING TO GFS AND TO SOME DEGREE, THE ECMWF,
THIS LOW SHOULD INTERACT WITH THE STRONG LOW LVL MOIST ATLANTIC
FLOW TO FURTHER ENHANCE THE SHOWER ACTIVITY. GFS NOW HAS A SFC LOW
DEVELOPING ALONG THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY MENTIONED BEFORE, BUT
FURTHER WESTWARD. IN FACT MOVES IT NORTHWARD OVER THE FLORIDA
PENINSULA. 00Z ECMWF STILL POINTS TO A DEVELOPMENT OVER THE ERN
GULF OF MEXICO. THIS, OF COURSE, PRODUCES TWO DIFFERENT SCENARIOS.
GFS NOW SHOWS THE HEAVIEST PRECIP OVER CENTRAL FLORIDA SATURDAY
THROUGH SUNDAY AS A CONVERGENCE BANDS DEVELOPS NORTH OF THE
DEVELOPING LOW. ECMWF, ON THE OTHER HAND, HAS A BAND DEVELOPING
ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA AS THE LOW BEGINS TO DEVELOP JUST NW CUBA
SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY. DECIDED TO INCREASE THE CHANCE FOR RAIN
ALL AREAS SATURDAY TO ACCOUNT FOR THE INCREASED EAST FLOW AND THE
POSSIBILITY OF THE SFC LOW BEING JUST SOUTH OR SOUTHWEST OF SOUTH
FLORIDA...HOWEVER UNCERTAINTIES ON WX CONDITIONS FOR SUNDAY STILL
PRETTY HIGH. THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAIN THROUGH THIS
PERIOD...ESPECIALLY ACROSS EASTERN AREAS OF SOUTH FLORIDA.

THE STRONG EAST FLOW WILL ALSO RESULT IN AN INCREASED RISK OF RIP
CURRENTS AND POSSIBLY BEACH EROSION ALONG THE ATLANTIC BEACHES
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

.MARINE...MARINE CONDITIONS SHOULD CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE WITH
WINDS AND SEAS STAYING IN THE CAUTION CRITERIA TONIGHT BUT
POSSIBLY REACHING SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY CRITERIA BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

Yeah its been quite the interesting week... Us in N.S. have gotten all of October's normal rainfall in the last 5 days... and enough wind to snap branches off trees... Beaufort scale = 9

This raises the statement/question again that I have believed for years is that I think Nor'Easters and "terracanes" (like the ones that caused the tornadoes this year) should be named. They do at least and sometimes more damage than tropical storms, and cause a lot of death and panic.

I'm not really sure why most people keep talking about the system forming on the East side of Florida so much as if that is the consensus. I mean, there isn't exactly a consensus at all yet, but if there was one, it would be on the West side of Florida. Why? Well, the GFS and NOGAPS are really the only main models showing it forming in the Bahamas and moving up the East Coast. Whereas multiple models are saying it will move right up over Florida or on the West side of Florida.

Furthermore, look to the South, what makes most since to you, low pressure initiation between Cuba and Mexico, the Florida straights, or the Bahamas? The Florida Straights over to between Mexico and Cuba are more likely places for low pressure formation, not only because there is more lift over that part of the stalled front, but also because the tail end of fronts is a classic place for cyclone formation.

I'm not saying it won't form on the east side of Florida, but that seems the least likely of the solutions, which is why I'm not sure why the HPC is going with that thinking. The local NWS offices in Central and South Florida also make note that low pressure on the tail end of fronts is more common rather then it forming further east.


Anyways, we shall see.

I wouldn't call it the least likely solution, because with the trough located over Florida like the models are suggesting, air would be diverging on the eastern side and causing low pressure to form.

Eastern side seems MOST likely IMO.

It will be better for Florida if a strong low does not develop for a lot of reasons. Not getting strong winds is one. But the other is that if a strong low develops subsidence near the low may cut off rainfall. A big breezy disorganized soaking would be best for all concerned I think!


We could use the rain here in ECFL. Our rainy season has been pretty dry. No one wants another TS Fay for certain! (25+ inches of rain here.) I have to agree with your big breezy disorganized soaking being the best scenario.

Our local NWS WFO has been talking about this system for days. We were going to head over to Sanibel for the long weekend and decided to stay put. My son is a meteorology student and this was his first break at school -- his next break will be during snowbird/tourist season so no Sanibel for us! Maybe next year. ;-)
