Tropical Storm Chris forms; little change to Cuba disturbance; Duluth floods

Tropical Storm Chris formed Tuesday evening from a extratropical storm that spent enough time over waters of 24 - 26°C to acquire tropical characteristics. Chris is headed eastwards, out to sea, and will not trouble any land areas. Only twice before, in 1887 and 1959, has the third storm of the season formed earlier than this date. Formation of three tropical storms so early in the year is not necessarily a harbinger of an active season; 1959 was close to average, with 12 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 2 intense hurricanes (average is 11 named storms, 6 hurricanes, and 2 intense hurricanes.) Unusual levels of early season activity in the Caribbean and between Africa and the Lesser Antilles usually portends a very active hurricane season, but this year's storms have not formed in this region. Alberto, Beryl, and Chris all formed off the U.S. East Coast.

Disturbance near Cuba will bring heavy rains to Florida
An area of low pressure and heavy thunderstorms centered just south of Cuba has changed little since Tuesday, and is bringing sporadic heavy rains to Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, South Florida, the Southern Bahamas, and Cuba. This disturbance will need to be watched for development as it drifts slowly northwest at about 5 mph and enters the Gulf of Mexico late this week. The disturbance is poorly organized, and has only a modest area of heavy thunderstorms. Wind shear is a moderate to high 15 - 25 knots over the region, and the shear is predicted to remain in the moderate to high range for the next three days along the disturbance's path. Water vapor satellite loops show a region of dry air over the Southern Gulf of Mexico; strong upper-level winds out of the northwest are bringing some of this dry air into the vicinity of the disturbance, which is interfering with development. NHC is giving the disturbance a 20% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Friday morning. As the disturbance reaches the waters off the southwest coast of Florida this weekend, a strong trough of low pressure pushing off of the U.S. East Coast will be capable of grabbing the storm and accelerating it to the northeast. This is the solution of the GFS model, which takes the storm across Florida on Sunday, and into the waters off the coast of South Carolina by Monday, with the disturbance developing into a tropical or subtropical storm off the coast of South Carolina. None of the other reliable computer models is showing development of the disturbance into a tropical depression. I think it is unlikely that heavy rains from this disturbance will affect Louisiana and Texas, but it will bring heavy rains to Southwest Florida and Cuba over the next five days.

Major flooding in Duluth, Minnesota
A serious flood emergency is occurring in Duluth, Minnesota. A series of "training" thunderstorms that all passed over the same region have dumped 4 - 5 inches of rain over a wide swath of Northern Minnesota overnight and early this morning. Nearly 8 inches of rain fell in the Denfeld area of western Duluth. This is more rain than fell in the city's previous worst flood on record, which occurred August 20, 1972. Major flooding is occurring, and only emergency travel is recommended in the city due to flooded roads. A flash flood warning from the Duluth National Weather Service issued at 7am CDT said this:

We cannot stress what a major threat this is for the city of Duluth
and along the North Shore. Aging infrastructure will also play a
part in the flood threat... especially on the hillside. Highway 61
remains closed in spots with washouts... overflowing streams and
rivers...washed out culverts and washed out roads. Just because you
might be able to travel to a destination now... does not mean you
will make it in one to two hours. This is how fast this situation
may deteriorate as more rainfall moves in from the west. There is
the potential for several more inches of rain today and the utility
system and the saturated ground cannot take much more rain.


According to wunderground's weather historian, Christopher C. Burt, the all-time 24 hour precipitation record for Duluth is 5.79" on 8/22 - 8/23 1978; 4.14" was recorded on Tuesday at the airport.

NAEFS is the last ensemble mean that solidly supports the disturbance getting into the NW gulf, a solution that cannot be dismissed just because the models are flip-flopping. One or two model cycles doesn't necessarily justify a track change, but we'll see if it becomes a solid trend.

are you sure the llc by key west is the correct one, because i think i see 2 or 3 more back by the cloud masses.


The system is still a long, open surface trough, and there is not really a circulation center yet. It looks to me that the center will start forming southwest of Key West based on the low-level cloud movements.

What we need is this to be tagged an invest so we can get model runs going off of fixed coordinates.

I have a feeling they are not tagging anything until it organizes some more and gets a Code Orange. There's already a low pressure area visible though, so I do not understand why they would not go ahead and designate one given the large model spread and the fact that it will be threatening the Gulf Coast.

Accweather will probably have to address those comments with a retraction of some sort now that Chris has made a smashing comeback compared to last night. They just took the chance to say it wasn't a real storm because of last nights appearance; with the hope being, that they would make the NHC and others look bad. Little brother trying to make big brother look bad by making a fancy catch, problem is the ball smacked him right in the face again.

AT 653 AM CDT...THE RAIN HAD LET UP FOR A TIME ACROSS THE DULUTH
AREA AND ALONG THE NORTH SHORE...BUT ANOTHER AREA OF HEAVY RAIN WILL
MOVE INTO THE AREA AGAIN THIS MORNING. WEATHER OBSERVERS REPORTED
NEARLY 8 INCHES OF RAIN IN THE DENFELD AREA OF WESTERN DULUTH.

EARLY THIS MORNING...MINNESOTA POWER ANNOUNCED THAT THEY WOULD BE
INCREASING THEIR DISCHARGE INTO THE SAINT LOUIS RIVER FROM THE FOND
DU LAC DAM. THE DISCHARGE OF 25000 CFS IS HIGHER THAN NORMAL AND
WILL RESULT IN FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS IN THE FOND DU LAC
NEIGHBORHOOD ALONG THE SAINT LOUIS RIVER. THE FOND DU LAC DAM IS
CURRENTLY NOT AT RISK. THIS WARNING IS TO ALERT PEOPLE ALONG THE
RIVER OF THE POTENTIAL OF FLOODING AND EVACUATIONS HAVE BEEN
ORDERED.

THE DULUTH POLICE DEPARTMENT ADVISES NO TRAVEL IN THE CITY. RAINFALL
OF NEARLY 8 INCHES IN SPOTS WAS NOTED FROM THE DULUTH AREA AND ALONG
HIGHWAY 61 OF THE NORTH SHORE. VARIOUS MEDIA OUTLETS AND LAW
ENFORCEMENT ARE REPORTING EXTENSIVE DAMAGE IN THE CITY OF
DULUTH...WITH SOME COLLAPSED ROADS AND NUMEROUS ROAD CLOSURES
THROUGHOUT THE CITY. THE FLOOD APPEARS TO BE REMINISCENT OF THE
FLOOD OF 1972 AND ONE THAT SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. THE DULUTH
NEWS TRIBUNE ONLINE LIVE BLOG HAD REPORTS OF PEOPLE BEING
RESCUED...VEHICLES FALLING INTO SINKHOLES ON COLLAPSED ROADS AND
RIVERS AND STREAMS OVERTAKING ROADWAYS.

WE CANNOT STRESS WHAT A MAJOR THREAT THIS IS FOR THE CITY OF DULUTH
AND ALONG THE NORTH SHORE. AGING INFRASTRUCTURE WILL ALSO PLAY A
PART IN THE FLOOD THREAT...ESPECIALLY ON THE HILLSIDE. HIGHWAY 61
REMAINS CLOSED IN SPOTS WITH WASHOUTS...OVERFLOWING STREAMS AND
RIVERS...WASHED OUT CULVERTS AND WASHED OUT ROADS. JUST BECAUSE YOU
MIGHT BE ABLE TO TRAVEL TO A DESTINATION NOW...DOES NOT MEAN YOU
WILL MAKE IT IN ONE TO TWO HOURS. THIS IS HOW FAST THIS SITUATION
MAY DETERIORATE AS MORE RAINFALL MOVES IN FROM THE WEST. THERE IS
THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERAL MORE INCHES OF RAIN TODAY AND THE UTILITY
SYSTEM AND THE SATURATED GROUND CANNOT TAKE MUCH MORE RAIN.

RUNOFF FROM THIS EXCESSIVE RAINFALL WILL CAUSE FLASH FLOODING TO
OCCUR. SOME LOCATIONS THAT WILL EXPERIENCE FLASH FLOODING
INCLUDE...DULUTH...GRAND MARAIS...ADOLPH...ALGER...ARNOLD...BEAVER

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY.

FLOODING IS OCCURRING OR IS IMMINENT. IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHERE
YOU ARE RELATIVE TO STREAMS...RIVERS...OR CREEKS WHICH CAN BECOME
KILLERS IN HEAVY RAINS. CAMPERS AND HIKERS SHOULD AVOID STREAMS OR
CREEKS.

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF FLOOD WATERS. ONLY A FEW INCHES OF
RAPIDLY FLOWING WATER CAN QUICKLY CARRY AWAY YOUR VEHICLE.

Flood Watch in effect until 10 PM EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Miami has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of South Florida... including all of
Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties

* until 10 PM EDT this evening

* widespread rain will continue across Southeast Florida through
this evening. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are
expected through this evening. However, locally higher amounts
are possible where heavy rain moves continuously over any given
location. This could lead to flooding across portions of the
watch area, particularly across areas which have received
heavier rains this morning... from South Miami extending
northwest to the Sweetwater and doral area. However, localized
flooding is possible anywhere across the watch area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

So, I lived in Duluth from 2000-2010 and they complained (and rightfully so) about the lack of Winter snow and Summer rains. I move back to the Houston area and Texas experiences one of the worse droughts and now Duluth is flooded.

TROPICAL STORM CHRIS DISCUSSION NUMBER 4
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL032012
1100 AM AST WED JUN 20 2012

THE SATELLITE APPEARANCE OF CHRIS HAS IMPROVED SINCE YESTERDAY.
THE TROPICAL CYCLONE HAS BECOME MORE SYMMETRIC WITH SEVERAL BANDS
OF SHOWERS WRAPPING AROUND THE CENTER. THE LATEST DVORAK INTENSITY
ESTIMATE FROM TAFB AND RECENT UW/CIMSS ADVANCED DVORAK TECHNIQUE
T-NUMBERS SUPPORT AN INITIAL WIND SPEED OF 45 KT. ENVIRONMENTAL
CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN MARGINALLY CONDUCIVE FOR SOME
SLIGHT STRENGTHENING DURING THE NEXT 12-18 HOURS. AFTER THAT
TIME...CHRIS WILL BE INTERACTING WITH A FRONTAL BOUNDARY AND MOVING
OVER MUCH COLDER WATERS. HOWEVER...THE GLOBAL MODELS INDICATE THAT
THE CYCLONE WILL INITIALLY MAINTAIN ITS STRENGTH AS AN
EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE...BEFORE WEAKENING IN 2-3 DAYS. RECENT RUNS
OF THE GLOBAL MODELS SUGGEST THAT THE POST-TROPICAL LOW COULD
REMAIN THE DOMINANT SYSTEM AND NOT BE THE ONE ABSORBED BY ANOTHER
EXTRATROPICAL LOW. FOR NOW THE NHC FORECAST WILL CONTINUE TO CALL
FOR POST-TROPICAL CHRIS TO BE ABSORBED...BUT CHANGES TO THIS
SCENARIO MAY BE REQUIRED IF MODEL TRENDS CONTINUE.

CHRIS APPEARS TO HAVE TURNED EASTWARD WITH AN INITIAL MOTION OF
090/19 KT. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST REASONING REMAINS UNCHANGED FROM
THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY. CHRIS IS EXPECTED TO TURN TOWARD THE
NORTHEAST...THEN NORTHWARD WITHIN THE NEXT 24-36 HOURS AS A CLOSED
LOW FORMS OVER THE NORTH ATLANTIC. LATER IN THE PERIOD...THE
POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE IS FORECAST TO ROTATE CYCLONICALLY AROUND THE
UPPER-LEVEL LOW. THE NHC FORECAST IS CLOSE TO THE GFS...
ECMWF...AND ON THE POST-TROPICAL PORTION OF THE TRACK PROVIDED BY
THE NOAA OCEAN PREDICTION CENTER.
