Mile-wide tornado smashes Windsor, Colorado; plus, hurricane season commentary

A mile-wide tornado swept through Colorado between 11am and noon yesterday, ripping the roofs off buildings, tossing cars into the air, and killing at least one person in Weld County, northeast of Denver. Hail up to 2.75" in diameter accompanied the storm, which took an unusual north-northwesterly track , parallel to the Rocky Mountains north of Denver. Hardest hit was the town of Windsor, between Fort Collins and Greely, where damage appeared to be at least EF3. A local TV station took some impressive live video of the tornado, and a wunderground web cam video in Windsor, Colorado (Figure 1) caught the funnel as it passed east of the camera.

The Weather Underground's tornado expert, Rob Carver, had this explanation of yesterday's tornadoes:

Two low pressure systems over the Western U.S. were the cause of the severe weather outbreak of May 22. A strong upper-level low over the Great Basin formed a surface low in the lee of the Rockies, and brought a strong southerly mid-level jet over the Plains of Colorado and Kansas. As the surface low formed, it brought warm moist air northwards, forming a warm front. This warm air moved westward, rising with the terrain, causing thunderstorms to form. Once these storms formed, the juxtaposition of easterly flow at the surface with southerly flow aloft (i.e., wind shear) produced significant spin in the horizontal direction, which was tilted by the storms to vertical spin, which triggered the formation of tornadic thunderstorms. This movement of the warm front up the slope of the Rockies to help trigger tornadic thunderstorms is a rare occurrence.

Bottom: Doppler velocity image of the tornado, showing a small core of red and blue colors right next to each other, denoting strong winds towards and away from the radar, the classic signature of a tornado vortex. For those interested, we've saved an animation of the reflectivity and Doppler velocity.

Severe weather forecast
Severe weather is expected today over Kansas, Nebraska, and surrounding states. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has placed portions of this area under its "Moderate Risk" category for severe weather, one step below its highest level of concern, "High Risk". Yesterday was also a "Moderate Risk" day, which SPC later upgraded to "High Risk" once the tornadoes started pounding Colorado. More severe weather is expected Saturday and Sunday over the Midwest as the upper-level low pressure system responsible moves slowly eastward. The Weather Underground Severe Weather page and Tornado page and WebCam page are good places to go to follow the severe weather. Also, tune in to the chase accounts and awesome storm photos from Wunderblogger Mike Theiss, who was in Kansas yesterday, and has posted many spectacular photos of yesterday's storms. According to Mike's blog:

Today Cloud 9 Tours saw 4 tornadoes and ONE developing almost overhead. We experienced winds over 100mph from the circulation of the meso that passed overhead as a cone tornado developed. Stay Tuned....


Possible development in the Eastern Pacific late next week
The past four days, the ECMWF model has been predicting the formation of a tropical storm in the the Eastern Pacific, just off the coast of Guatemala, around May 29. The GFS model has also been predicting something might develop, but in the Western Caribbean near Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. The GFS has been rather inconsistent with its handling of this potential storm, and I am inclined to discount its forecast--especially since last night's long range runs of the NOGAPS, Canadian, and UKMET models all show development in the Eastern Pacific, not the Caribbean. All five models predict a northward shift in the jet stream and substantial relaxation in wind shear over the Eastern Pacific and Western Caribbean next week. It is common to see May tropical storms in the Eastern Pacific, and it would not be a surprise to see something develop there. I'd put the odds of something popping up in the Western Caribbean or Gulf of Mexico at less than 10%, though.

NOAA's seasonal hurricane forecast
NOAA issued its annual seasonal hurricane forecast yesterday, which I discussed in detail in yesterday's blog entry. Yesterday's forecast came out with a little more uncertainty attached to it than previous forecasts, which is a good thing. The media attention and fanfare that accompanies these forecasts is rather excessive, given the low skill they have. In fact, we don't even know if the NOAA forecasts have ANY mathematical skill, because they've never released a verification study of their forecasts. I doubt that the skill is very high--as Eric Berger of the Houston Chronicle pointed out in a blog yesterday, NOAA has blown its forecast of Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) each of the last six years. NOAA held its usual press conference to announce the forecast; this year, it was held at the home of the NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft, MacDill AFB in Tampa. The NOAA dignitaries present said all the right things, preaching the need for preparedness regardless of the forecast for the upcoming hurricane season. Still, I wonder if NOAA might be hurting themselves by making such a public spectacle over the release of a forecast that no one knows the accuracy of, and has performed poorly by some measures in recent years. I do like the fact they are issuing public hurricane forecasts, as I expect their accuracy and value will improve in coming years, but they're definitely not worth the attention they're getting at present.

Iam still not buying the GFS caribbean solution as if right now.Until something starts to actually develope down there then its worth paying attention.Development in the eastern pacific seems a little more likely right now.As of right now the entire caribbean and gulf are covered in dry air.SEE HERE

Now, if the CMC were to shift over to the Western Caribbean and align with the GFS and ECMWF models, then we may have something to start giving much more consideration towards, although it still remains a "ghost" system. All I have to say (and someone had stated this a few days ago), expect the unexpected. More people would expect and Eastern Pacific storm, rather than a Western Caribbean storm, but you should all know that Mother Nature works on her own terms.

Morning, everybody.

850. stormdude77 9:39 AM EDT on May 24, 2008

Hey, dude. I'm actually looking at the moisture in the EPac instead. That area at about 10N 90W looks like it's ready to spin.

I have a lot more faith in the EPac possibilities right now. On the GFS "ghost", I suppose something blowing up after the 28th isn't completely unlikely. However, I'd expect something more around next Sat. after the season has begun.

I'm also reading with interest the comments on the possible effects of the low dust level on the CV season. I'm not completely sure what the rationale for the potential early start is, since I have this idea that a big negative influence on the CV season in June is high shear more so than dust. SJ, are u suggesting windshear will be much lower than average throughout June as well?

As for the early recurviture, I know this saved us in 2003 and 2006 when the worst of the seasons CV storms stayed out to sea. However, this is quite dependent on the location and strength of the high, isn't it? I've noted some interesting formations for the AB high over the last couple of weeks, including one that ridged the ATL along about 35N almost into the Bahamas and another that showed a neat split just east of Bermuda. I like the idea of recurviture, but I'm not convinced just yet that we can expect it.

LOL you're welcome!

Morning Drak; I believe at the current intensity (and because GFS looses resoultion that far out) GFS is predicting a hurricane out of this, however obviously intensity forecasts don't mean much yet. Again, it depends on the position of the monsoon trough come tuesday and Wednesday.


Yes that is definitely a hurricane and with that wind field that atmo posted its probably a cat 2. 989mb is very low on a model especially with a poor resolution that far out.

Could that crossover by the CMC be a start to a model consensus? Initializing the storm wrong at first and bringing it back over to compensate it's mistake. The chances of it surviving the mountainous trek over Mexico are slim to none.

Just watching the 12UTC NAM come in and it develops an Eastern Pacific storm within the next three days. Could give support to Storm's observations earlier that it appears there is some organization happening. Based on everything I can gather, if this were to happen, this would happen much sooner than anticipated and would allow for the Western Caribbean to develop a tropical system late next week.

By the way, great observation Tampa. Both systems take similar paths and both occur at around the same time. We will have to wait and see in which area does a tropical system start forming.

Thanks CCHS

So here are the options:

1) An E-pac system.
2) An E-pac system and then a South Caribbean system heading north into the GOMEX. (gfs)
3) An E-pac system crossing over Central America into the Caribbean. (CMC)

Someone commented earlier about how the GFS has been inconsistent with this Caribbean system, but thinking back on it, I only recall one model run that was far from the rest and that run had it hitting texas... That rest of them have had it hitting somewhere from New Orleans to Miami. And this type of track is common for this time of year.

The E-Pac looks too promising for development to allow Caribbean activity for now.

I think this statement isn't always correct- I think that systems will form in both basins. Development of an epac storm is currently occurring and if this Storm is able to pull w away from central amer. then that could enhance the chances for development in the Carib..

I concur TN

And thanks for saving me one link :~)

E Coast CMC Phase 00z


Ukmet Phase 00z


Nogaps Phase 00z

All keep it cold core, some make it more symmetric then other, and some take it closer to warm core then other, but again, nothing shows it going warm core.

Still and interesting area to watch for a couple of days while we are waiting on the Carib to get a feature, as well as some model consensus.

Morning cchs,

I don't think the 06z GFS shows the system making landfall in S Fla. Brushes by it, but if you look it shows the system continue to strengthen until it makes land fall in the Apalchicola Bay area. I don't think it would show the strengthening if it made landfall ins S Fla.

868, If that happened it would have been in the late season period when an area of disturbed weather crossed from the E-Pac to the Caribbean then developed. The E-Pac looks too promising for development to allow Caribbean activity for now. The E-Pac and W. Caribbean compete for tropical development and this time of year the E-Pac usually wins. Late in the season it is usually the opposite.

Pre-Season™ blob watching is perfectly acceptable, especially if the only other real topic is a 384hr GFS forecast :~)

Morning, SJ. I thought blob watching began a long time ago lol! I think what matters is that there is the potential for something to form. Leave the track for when we actually have a system to monitor.

Cyclone Phase Diagram shows the beginning of the GFS storm at 108 hours forming off the coast of Costa Rica and moving northward.

The GFS shows that developing tail end low off Florida but keeps it completely cold cored.

No matter though, a 384 landfall forecast is pretty useless to begin with.

The fact that the models tend to show conditions in that area getting ripe is really all we can take from them right now imho.

Have a good day at work. See ya this evening!

CC, I agree about the severe wx potential. Last 2 days there were debris clouds left from day before that burned off before the seabreeze effect got going. Today there is none of that and there is slightly drier air in the upper levels which will allow temps to rise more before storms fire making severe wx more likely.

"Exactly Kman...look how dry the entire Caribbean is, and even in the entire GOM (Gulf of Mexico)..."

As the Bermuda high builds in, equatorial moisture will also be drawn northward into Caribbean and GOM. The arrival of the first tropical waves will contribute to the mid and upper level moisture as will evaporation as SSTs warm. They dry air in the Caribbean and GOM wont last much longer.

Good Saturday morning everyone!

Just took a quick look at satellite imagery from across the basin and the latest computer models and here are just some remarks that I have.

1) It looks like the tropical low we had yesterday has succumbed to hostile environmental conditions, although I still see some spin.
2) The GFS model has gotten right back on a Western Caribbean storm and shows a stronger system hitting the Gulf Coast in 00z run, but a strong system hitting South Florida and moving north up the peninsula into the Southeast (the perfect scenario for the Southeast) in 06z run. I must agree that the GFS has had poor handling on this "ghost" system, but now that the ECMWF appears to back off an Eastern Pacific system and now develops a weak tropical low in the Western Caribbean, it seems that this could indeed be a possible situation.
3) Referring to Storm's comment, it does indeed appear the Eastern Pacific may have some organization occuring as there is a broad circulation developing off the Mexican coast. If this does develop into the forecasted Eastern Pacific storm earlier than expected, it could allow for a Western Caribbean system to form next week.
4) It looks like Southeast Florida is under the gun for some real nasty weather this afternoon as the West Coast, Lake Okeechobee, and East Coast sea/lake breezes will all converge over the area providing tremendous lift in the atmosphere.

Now, I will not be available this afternoon since I have work from 12:30 to 5:30, but I will be back this evening to check the latest.

858, It has been very humid here in PBC for last several days. That has led to the 4+ inches of rain that has fallen in last two days. That shows how much difference evaporation makes in the rain cycle here in Florida. It rained to our north and west wednesday then alot here thursday and friday. Evaporation from the previous day has helped to trigger the following day's rains.

Good morning my friends here on Dr Master's blog. Wow, still watching for a possible invest next week huh? sure could use a nice tropical depression running up thru the middle of Florida next week! LOL


Will be popping in and out when I can today to see what is developing out there.

Here in my area, our air for the past 2-3 weeks is like Kman said, HOT and DRY...not even humid and we are always humid down here in SE Fla. earlier this week the wind was so dry it felt like a sponge soaking up any moisture on anything and evaporation was terrible.

I sort of miss the humidity! LOL(I will not believe I said that in a few weeks from now LOL)
