The weather gods are interfering mightily with the busiest travel period of the year in the U.S., as powerful Winter Storm Boreas plows up the Eastern seaboard, bringing a nasty mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, heavy rain, high winds, and severe thunderstorms. Woe to ye who attempt to traverse the Pennsylvania Turnpike through Western Pennsylvania; my award for worst weather of the day goes to Somerset, PA. Tuesday's forecast calls for freezing rain of up to 1/10" ice accumulation, accompanied by 1 - 3" of snow, followed by rain and freeing rain Tuesday night, followed by another 2 - 4" of snow on Wednesday. Dangerous snowy and icy travel will dominate all the high elevation areas from the Smoky Mountains to Maine. The worst freezing rain will be in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where up to 1/4" of ice accumulation is expected. The greatest snows of 6+ inches will fall in Western New York and Northwest Pennsylvania. Rochester, NY is expected to get up to a foot of snow, due to strong northwest winds off of Lake Ontario that will add a extra lake effect boost. Six plus inches of snow are also a good bet in Pittsburgh and Buffalo.

A very wet and windy storm for the coast
Boreas has tapped into an "Atmospheric River" of very moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, and the amount of water vapor available to make rain (the "Precipitable Water") will be near record highs (for November) along the East Coast. For example, in New York City, the Precipitable Water is expected to be near 1.7" on Wednesday morning; there has been only one higher value of Precipitable Water recorded there in November since 1948 (2.02" on November 11, 2003.) All this moisture will generate heavy rains for coastal New England and the Mid-Atlantic, with rain amounts of 3 - 4" commonplace. The low clouds and strong winds accompanying these rains will slow air travel throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Fortunately, river levels are low due to moderate drought in much of the Northeast, and only minor flooding is expected from the heavy rains.

Accompanying the heavy rains along the coast will be high winds; a Wind Advisory for sustained winds of 20 - 30 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph, is in place along much of the coast from Delaware to Maine. While the rains will be gone on Thursday in time for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, winds will still be strong, making conditions potentially too dangerous for the balloons used in the parade. These balloons are not allowed to fly if the city experiences sustained winds of 23 mph with gusts of 34 mph. The forecast calls for sustained winds of 15 - 20 mph gusting to 40 mph on Thursday.

Category 1 Cyclone Lehar headed towards India
Dangerous Category 1 Cyclone Lehar is slowly intensifying as it heads west-northwest at 10 mph towards India's Bay of Bengal coast. Satellite images show that Lehar--which is the Hindustani word for "wave"--continues to have a large Central Dense Overcast (CDO) of high cirrus clouds over its center, which is characteristic of intensifying tropical cyclones near Category 1 hurricane strength. Lehar has not been able to form a prominent eye, and is likely having problems getting organized in the face of moderate wind shear of 10 - 20 knots. Ocean temperatures are a very warm 28 - 29°C, and Lehar should be able to attain Category 2 strength before landfall. Cooler waters near shore and an increase in wind shear as the storm nears landfall will likely mean that Lehar will be weakening as it comes ashore. Landfall is expected to occur near 06 UTC Thursday, November 28, in the Andhra Pradesh state of India. This is the same portion of the coast that Cyclone Helen hit on Friday as a tropical storm with 40 mph winds. Helen's heavy rains killed eleven people, caused widespread severe agricultural damage, and left the soils saturated, which will make the rains from Lehar doubly dangerous. Also of concern is the storm surge, which will impact a portion of the coast that is heavily populated and low-lying. The India Meteorological Agency (IMD) is predicting a storm surge of up to 2 - 3 meters (7 - 10 feet) to the right of where the eye makes landfall.

An unusually active tropical cyclone season for India
In addition to Cyclone Helen, India's Bay of Bengal coast also was hit this year by Tropical Cyclone Phailin, a Category 4 storm with 140 mph winds, which killed 44 people and did $1.1 billion in damage on October 12, 2013. It's unusual for India to get hit by so many named storms in one year; the last time three or more named storms did so was in 1996, when six storms of at least tropical storm intensity hit. Only four Bay of Bengal tropical cyclones have hit India at hurricane strength since 2000, if we include Cyclone Phailin from 2013. The others were:

Category 1 Cyclone Aila of May 25, 2009, which hit near Kolkata, killing 96, causing $553 million in damage.
Category 1 Cyclone Thane, of December 30, 2011, which hit Southeast India, killing 48, causing $376 million in damage.
Category 1 Cyclone 05B, which hit Southern India on November 29, 2000, killing six.

The last major tropical cyclone to hit the portion of the coast that Lehar is threatening occurred on June 14 1996, when Category 4 Tropical Cyclone 07B struck, killing 731 people. Wunderground's weather historian Christopher C. Burt has a detailed post on India's tropical cyclone history. During the past two centuries, 42 percent of Earth's tropical cyclone-associated deaths have occurred in Bangladesh, and 27 percent have occurred in India (Nicholls, R.J.N., N. Mimura, J.C. Topping, 1995, "Climate change in south and south-east Asia: some implications for coastal areas," J Glob Environ Eng 1995;1:137–54.)

Living in PA, NJ, MD, and VA, I never saw more broken pipes than when I lived in FL (Tallahassee).

It seems like winter is inconceivable when enduring the 100 days of August but hard freezes happen reliably there almost every year.

I know we are greatly in the minority regarding that opinion, but I totally agree. Can't stand the heat.
I'm from Michigan originally. What bothered me about the climate there was not the ice and snow, nor the cold. It was the excessive number of cloudy days in the period roughly between late November and early April. The occasional and searing heat waves of summer also did not bother me much, even though we did not have central A/C in our home there. The one thing that fascinated me most while growing up in Michigan was the tendency for severe thunderstorms to strike in the dead of night, during both Spring and Summer. Those were both frightening and awesome to a young kid and they happened there with a high degree of frequency, for some reason or another.

I saw it before it hit. Was the rotation still significant while it hit both cities?
Red TVS is pretty significant... typical in a strong and damaging tornadoes. NROT (from what I saw on Twitter via a friend from UNCC) was pretty high. it look like it hit the western tip of an island where Atlantic Beach is located at. After looking at radar screenshot, it look like it hit pretty dense area (but it's narrow city as well with swamps to north as I thought). I've been to Morehead City few times for offshore fishing.

Ingredients weren't there for a major violent tornado outbreak. That is a GOOD thing!!!! A couple of spinups of weak tornadoes, but nothing major. We don't need any mass destruction especially two days before Thanksgiving.

A little bit of rain. A little bit of wind. Nothing more. This just isn't the part of the country for severe long track tornadoes. For that, I am thankful.
Nash, if I could like this comment a thousand times I would...most of us with reason are thankful nobodies house was destroyed before Thanksgiving. Now we all can go have a nice Thanksgiving with our families knowing that we are safe from mother nature. By the way the cloud cover over the peninsula of Florida kept the atmosphere stable today.

It looks like a decent-strength tornado moved ashore between Pine Knoll Shores and Atlantic Beach before hitting something (had a tornado debris signature on radar).

It went over the dense part of Altantic Beach and Morehead City. Good news is that it's thin over there by 1/2 mile of stuff so the tornado should be in swamps by now.

Btw, went from temperature in low 30s to high 60s in just four hours... I prefer the cold.

Anyway, my parents survived the 8 hours drive from Raleigh to Asheville and back in a very heavy rain (roads are the worst I've ever seen short of snow/ice). Asheville broke all time record for the most rainfall in a single year (going back to Jan. 1). Old record was 64.91" of rain back in 1973 and it's now about 67" after today with another month to go.

My laptop is broken so I'll be limited to few things (no GR2A). I'm glad to be back home...

OK, at my location (30 mi. NW of Tampa) during the past hour we've had moderate rain, heavy rain (doing that right now), some straight-line wind gusts up to near 40 mph and a few nearby strokes of lightning...

So I'm satisfied now, for this go-round. The Great Florida Devastating Tornado Outbreak can make its arrival on some other day, some other time. It will happen again someday and when it does, those spinning wheels that denote rotation on the radar image will look impressive, like an attack of the great spinning zombies from outer space. But as exciting as that might be for some, it could be tragic for others. So, like everything else in life which is unpleasant but also inevitable, it can wait for another day and time.

Now bring on the cold Thanksgiving Day!

Well this went from optimistic to bad.. Haiyan grounded & busted a barge spilling a lot of oil. People are being forced out of their homes.

Environment Pollution in Philippines on Tuesday, 26 November, 2013 at 08:41 (08:41 AM) UTC.
Description
Around 1,200 individuals were forcibly evacuated following the oil spill incident as a power barge of the National Power Corporation (Napocor) was damaged during the onslaught of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) in the shoreline of Estancia, Iloilo. Napocor President Gladys Cruz Sta. Maria said that five barangays in Estancia including the worst-hit Botongan has been badly affected by the recent oil spill incident causing more residents to move out and temporary relocate due the unpleasant chemical smell occurring in the area. Sta. Maria said that their target is to force evacuate around 5,000 residents in the next couple of days since the condition in the affected areas is expected to become more hazardous due the toxic smell coming from the power barge. “It seems tataas pa ito (evacuees), we are targeting around 5,000 residents to evacuated since they are complaining to the smell from the oil spill. Some have been experiencing severe headaches and difficulty in breathing already,” Sta. Maria said. She noted that Napocor together with the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (Psalm) will handle the expenses and damages brought by the incident to livelihood of residents affected in the coastal town.

The Psalm provided a total of P 1.5 million to Iloilo while Napocor gave an initial P500,000 to the municipality of Estancia. Sta. Maria said that they already have a contingency plan. He also said that they will handle all the responsibilities over the incident together with Psalm. The Kuan Yu Global Technologies has been tapped by the Napocor and Psalm to conduct clean-up and salvaging operations on the damaged power barge. He noted that the company will hire local residents to help in the ongoing clean-up operations so that it can be an alternative source of income for them. “This will also serve as temporary livelihood for the residents particularly for the fisher folks affected by the oil spill,” Sta. Maria said. The Kuan Yu Global Technologies estimated the clean-up and salvaging operations to last in the next three months. Commander Armando Balilo, Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) Public Affairs chief said that around 80,000 liters of oil and some 46-tons of debris have already been collected after the clean up.

Here's video right after the storm.

The current puppet campaigned in 2007 to recognize the Lumbee tribe as an Indian nation even though the state has recognized them as such for quite some time. Tribes in the Caribbean, South and Central America, and Micronesia recognize them, as well as most North American tribes. Still no federal recognition. Somehow I think Lumberton will survive tonight's cold spell.

There are some cells offshore, moving northeast towards the Outer Banks, that contain significant rotation. It'll be interesting to see if they retain that as they head inland.

Scott was warning us of dangers that could have well been very real, and this front has not passed yet. Whether there is a tree branch blown upon someones head, or a sunken dinghy in a private pond, lest they be truly unknown to the ways of weather, they were warned, and I second him.

The only reason is because of the lashing I took that night and I went to far as a result. I was wrong for that and I am sorry.



Scott, I love and appreciate your love for weather. We're all on here for the same reasons. Just keep it real and all it good.

Quoting 574. Catherdr:


All those areas mentioned are in the North Georgia mountains. Peachtree City is the NWS location and is making local reports "official"

Sorry, yeah that should have read Peachtree NWS area. I was generalizing all the significant reports from that NWS office like I did with others around the SE.

For all that "color" where I live (ECFL), I've only gotten just a few minutes of light rain.

So it seems the major arctic air around the 6-8th isn't going to be as cold as this past event. Was hoping for a second shot of getting some winter precip since I got none :(


I think December 8 is a little too early to call winter "over"

You could just, you know, move farther north to see snow.
Visit, perhaps, but I'll never move. I like to make love to hurricanes.
