Major severe thunderstorm outbreak expected; U.S. drought intensifies

A dangerous outbreak of organized severe thunderstorms with strong, damaging winds is expected this afternoon from Ohio eastwards through Pennsylvania and into New England, says NOAA's Storm Prediction Center (SPC). They have put the region, which includes Columbus, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and New York City, in their "Moderate Risk" area for severe weather, just one notch below the highest level of alert. Much of the region is also under advisories for extreme heat, with temperatures in the upper 90s expected. This extreme heat will help energize the thunderstorms by making the atmosphere very unstable. A cold front passing through the region will trigger the severe weather episode beginning around 2 pm EDT this afternoon, near the Indiana/Ohio border. This front already triggered a round of severe thunderstorms early this morning across Michigan, which knocked out power to 16,000 customers. This afternoon, severe thunderstorms may organize into a complex that features a bow-shaped echo. If such a complex brings violent straight-line winds in excess of 58 mph (93 km/hr) over a swath of at least 240 miles (about 400 km), it will be called a derecho (from the Spanish phrase for "straight ahead".) The atmosphere is not as unstable as was the case for the June 29 - 30 Mid-Atlantic and Midwest derecho, however. That storm was one of the most destructive and deadly fast-moving severe thunderstorm complexes in North American history. It killed 22 people, knocked out power to at least 3.7 million customers, and did hundreds of millions in damage.

U.S. drought intensifies
The great U.S. drought of 2012 held constant in size but grew more intense over the past week, said NOAA in their weekly U.S. Drought Monitor report issued Thursday, July 26. The area of the contiguous U.S. covered by drought stayed constant at 64% , but the area covered by severe or greater drought jumped from 42% to 46%. These are truly historic levels of drought, exceeded only during the great Dust Bowl drought of the 1930s and a severe drought in the mid-1950s. The July 2012 drought is second only to the great Dust Bowl drought of July 1934 in terms of the area of the contiguous U.S. covered by moderate or greater drought (if we assume the drought conditions measured in mid-July are representative of the entire month of July, which is a reasonable approximation given the lastest drought forecast.) The five months with the greatest percent area in moderate or greater drought, since 1895, now look like this:

1) Jul 1934, 80%
2) Jul 2012, 64%
3) Dec 1939, 60%
4) Jul 1954, 60%
5) Dec 1956, 58%

If we consider the area of the contiguous U.S. covered by severe or greater drought, drought conditions as of July 24, 2012 now rank in 3rd place:

1) Jul 1934, 63%
2) Sep 1954, 50%
3) Jul 2012, 46%
4) Dec 1956, 43%
5) Aug 1936, 43%


Figure 2. July 24, 2012 drought conditions showed historic levels of drought across the U.S., with 64% of the contiguous U.S. experiencing moderate or greater drought, and 46% of the county experiencing severe or greater drought. Image credit: U.S. Drought Monitor.

Extreme heat continues in the Heartland
St. Louis, Missouri's summer of extreme heat reached record levels on Wednesday, when the city hit 108°F. This marked the 11th day this summer in St. Louis with temperatures of at least 105°F, beating the old record of ten such days in 1934. The minimum temperature in the city fell to just 86°F, tying with July 24, 1901, as the warmest minimum temperature ever recorded in the city. St. Louis has seen just 0.53" inches of rain this month, far below the normal 3.35" it usually records by this point in July.

First line really taking on the shape of the classical derecho now. Super cells north that have been producers are not weakening. Lot of time for it to recycle into something else though before it gets to NYC. Hopefully something less ominous. Reed beat me to it. Just saw that lol. Not the leading story on the Nightly News tonight either. Sure it'll be the second or third. I forgive them, I see why. NBC News, with Brian Williams is good I think. I get my news from the world outlets and just about anywhere I can dig it up.

Lol Gro, I bet *sarcasm*.

If any of ever want to experience a real severe thunderstorm, go visit the Dallas/Fort Worth area in the Spring. The storms we get here in the East are nothing compared to those.


I can't argue with that, I've been in Texas more than once and the whole "everythings bigger in Texas" really applies to weather, Texas can get some absolutely freak thunderstorms and that goes for the rest of the southern plains too, but that's pretty much a given... lol

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1613
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0504 PM CDT THU JUL 26 2012

AREAS AFFECTED...SOUTHERN/EASTERN PA TO SOUTHEAST NY/NYC METRO AND
SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND

CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 525...

VALID 262204Z - 262330Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 525 CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...TORNADO WATCH 525 CONTINUES UNTIL 01Z AND SEVERE TSTM
WATCH 527 CONTINUES UNTIL 03Z.

SERIOUS CONCERN EXISTS FOR WIDESPREAD SWATHS OF WIND DAMAGE INTO THE
EARLY/MID EVENING HOURS WITHIN WATCHES 525/527. ISOLATED TORNADOES
ALSO REMAIN A CONCERN ESPECIALLY ACROSS SOUTHEAST NY AND ADJACENT
PARTS OF EASTERN PA/NORTHERN NJ...WITH WIDESPREAD WIND DAMAGE
OTHERWISE EXPECTED TO STEADILY SPREAD EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD TOWARD THE
COAST WITH A FAST-MOVING SEVERE MCS/DERECHO.

DISCUSSION...WELL-ORGANIZED QUASI-LINEAR CONVECTIVE SYSTEM /QLCS/
CONTINUES TO STEADILY PROGRESS EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD...FROM NEAR THE
SOUTHEAST NY/NORTHEAST PA BORDER VICINITY SOUTHWESTWARD INTO
SOUTH-CENTRAL PA...WITH THE FASTEST-MOVING BOWING /NORTHEASTERN/
PORTION OF THE LINE MOVING AS FAST AS 45-50 KT. LATEST SUBJECTIVE
SURFACE ANALYSIS REFLECTS A PRESSURE FALL-RISE COUPLET...WITH MODEST
QLCS-LEADING PRESSURE FALLS...AND A 20-25 DEG F COLD POOL ALONG WITH
3 MB/2 HR PRESSURE RISES ACROSS PA IN THE TRAILING STRATIFORM WAKE
REGION OF THE QLCS. COINCIDENT WITH A GRADUAL STRENGTHENING OF MEAN
FLOW OVER THE PAST FEW HOURS...LATEST WSR-88D VWP DATA FROM STATE
COLLEGE IS INDICATIVE OF 50 KT WINDS BETWEEN 2-6 KM IN ASSOCIATION
WITH THE QLCS WAKE REGION.

WITH ADDITIONAL FORWARD PROPAGATION/ACCELERATION AND RESULTANT
BOWING LIKELY...OF FURTHER CONCERN IS THAT THE AIRMASS CONTINUES TO
STEADILY WARM LATE THIS AFTERNOON /AS OF 21Z/ IN TANDEM WITH
CLOUD-FREE SKIES AND THE NORTHEASTWARD ADVANCEMENT OF A WARM FRONT
TOWARD FAR SOUTHEAST NY/NYC METRO AND SOUTHWEST NEW ENGLAND. THESE
THERMODYNAMIC TRENDS...PRESENCE OF THE WARM FRONT...AND EXISTING
ORGANIZED NATURE OF THE MCS/COLD POOL SUGGESTS A VERY HEIGHTENED
WIND DAMAGE/SOME TORNADO POTENTIAL INTO REMAINING PARTS OF SOUTHEAST
NY/NYC METRO/SOUTHWEST NEW ENGLAND AND ADJACENT PARTS OF EASTERN PA
AND NJ.

That is where our other home is in NE Pennsylvania. We live in a valley, so a lot of storms go north or south of us. Same with heavy snow storms. We don't always get a lot.


Nice, yeah that eastern end of the line is looking quite powerful, those cells are bowing out and have much taller convective tops than most of the other ones, if they hold than strong into New York they will cause panic. I remember a serious line of thunderstorms went through New York City last summer and really freaked people out. You know how big city bustlers are, they only want to know if it's going to rain but ignore you if you tell them to stay inside and stay safe from approaching severe weather LOL.

I hate when people ask me if its' going to rain because I'm the "weather man" but then mock me when i tell them to stop playing football outside because severe weather is approaching on then people end up nearly having a heart attack attempting to scramble into their cars are a building because they didn't listen to me lol.

Have you ever been to Florida in a severe weather outbreak?? We can throw some good storms down here when we want to.

Lol Gro, I bet *sarcasm*.

If any of ever want to experience a real severe thunderstorm, go visit the Dallas/Fort Worth area in the Spring. The storms we get here in the East are nothing compared to those.

There are a little too many warnings there if you ask me, overkill, some of those cells that have warnings aren't even half as strong as a daily shower here. However those ones in northeast Pennsylvania are very very powerful, they need to be take seriously that's for sure.


That is where our other home is in NE Pennsylvania. We live in a valley, so a lot of storms go north or south of us. Same with heavy snow storms. We don't always get a lot.

Getting a bit tired of it.. :)

On a serious note..folks need to inform their elderly neighbors and shut-in friends up North/North East as they may not realize or comprehend the seriousness of their weather this evening/tonight..




I'll take it! Send it west pcola! Love the rain

I agree with you on assisting/checking/informing your neighbors, especially the elderly. My mom is in Ohio, I know that she is okay as my brother is with her
