Snow, Freezing Rain, Heavy Rain, and High Winds Hit Eastern U.S.; India Watches Lehar

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.)

Quoting 487. Astrometeor:
Now, this is a FUN forecast:

Snow and sleet before 2am, then sleet between 2am and 4am, then freezing rain after 4am. Temperature rising to around 28 by 4am. Very windy, with a southwest wind 30 to 40 mph becoming southeast 40 to 50 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 65 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime ice accumulation of 0.5 to 0.7 of an inch possible. Total nighttime snow and sleet accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.
Would so not want to be driving a tractor-trailer rig in that...

What's the coldest you've seen?
Do you mean ever? or just this cold season so far? If the latter, we're still waiting to break into the 60s here. Normally by this time we've hit 68 a couple of times already... but the nights have really been warmer than average. If you mean ever, we rarely go lower than 50 degrees here, and I think our record coldest is in the upper 40s.

The good news is that the storms are racing NE at 35-40 mph. We should be in the "clear" by midnight. Still wouldn't surprise me if we do get a spin up or 2. Temperature gradient is ridiculous. 42 in Charlotte, 73 here in Charleston.

So we're looking at up to 20 degree drops behind the front... though I doubt that makes it all the way to S FL... It would put this area in the 50s overnight post-front, which seems a bit extreme. Even some 60s would be sufficiently impressive... first genuine cold to make it all the way to the tropics...

* Timing... north winds are expected to rise to 25 to 30 mph with
frequent higher gusts tonight into early Wednesday morning.
Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing between
midnight and 5 am Wednesday night.

I'm doing some Video and stills for a blog on the Black Swans in City Park,and they like a North Wind for those fascinating takeoff's.

Will try to video a takeoff.

This one injured in Feb was cared for and now resides on the N. Shore..





There were a few black swans on the promenade lake in Southport (UK) when I lived there a few years back.


So like, has there been a Thanksgiving travel-time lately, that's not had really bad weather during it? Seems like it's a common occurrence for turkey day! My daughter in Colorado Springs, said roads last night were really bad.

My friends from Manchester are coming out to North Wales for turkey day. So, first time in a long time (since me fellow expat from NY had a proper one with us years ago) are having a proper Thanksgiving as they want to have one. They're renting a cottage on the Isle of Anglesey for 3 nights starting tomorrow, so my daughter and I will stay for a few nights (even though only 30 min away from home LOL) and I'll make them a proper TDay dinner. Any excuse to make pumpkin pie!

About normal here N. Wales. Chilly, been around 40' and gray. Mon or Tues, woke up to snow on the hills and at very low level (probs 500 feet), so looked marvelous...but snow was right back up to the tops the next morning.

Hope everyone keeps warm and no 'nado's or anything damaging round everyone. And a happy Thanksgiving to everyone, since will be away and not on much. Even after 13 years in the UK, still a special holiday to me.
