Forecast Discussion


Synopsis - Issued - 6/09 @4:25am


An active weather pattern will persist through the work week, making for very wet conditions. Passages of individual shortwaves are slated for today, Thursday and Friday, with those later on in the week bringing the potential for minor flooding as the ground saturates during the week. The lone break on Wednesday will be dominated by easterly flow and a pesky marine layer pushing low clouds, fog and drizzle ashore. No guarantees that Saturday will remain precipitation-free in all locales but and activity appears isolated at best with most eking out a dry day. Another trough dips into the Great Lakes and Northeast Sunday and Monday as unsettled weather returns.


Near-term - Issued - 6/09 @4:25am

Numerous showers and thunderstorms associated with low pressure moving into the region and its attending frontal boundaries are sweeping through much of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and western New England this overnight and early morning. A few of the storms in central Pennsylvania have been on the strong side, producing 30-40mph winds, frequent lightning and pea-sized hail, but no severe thunderstorm warnings have been issued thus far with this batch of storms at the time of this writing, though storms may become severe at any time. Through mid morning most locales across the affected regions will see a quarter to a half inch of rainfall, though where those heavier thunderstorms occur rainfall may exceed one inch. The clouds thin as one heads further northeast as high pressure is in control following the passage of a northern stream trough yesterday morning over northern New England. In fact, ideal radiational cooling under the clear skies, light winds and dry continental airmass has led to late frost/freeze across northern Maine. Temperatures here have dropped all the way back into the lower to middle 30’s. Elsewhere across northern New England temperatures this morning are in the 40’s to low 50’s while the remainder of the region remains in the mid 50’s to mid 60’s in the soupy airmass south of the warm front.

Short-term - Issued - 6/09 @5:25am


Aforementioned low pressure will weaken today as it heads into the Northeast, feeling the effects of blocking high pressure over the Labrador Coast. Regardless, showers and thunderstorms will still make their presence felt over the region today, especially in the warm sector ahead of the cold front. Despite varying levels of cloud cover, limiting surface based instability to an extent, enough insolation will occur to adequately destabilize the atmosphere for the development of thunderstorms along and ahead of the front today. Axis of deeper moisture, exhibited by precipitable water values running well over 1.5”, runs through eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey up into southeastern New York and southern New England aiding in CAPE that will exceed 1,000J/kg by the noon hour over the regions mentioned above. Winds aloft aren’t too impressive, running around 20kts @850mb and barely touching 40kts @500mb yielding effective shear of around 20-25kts, enough to sustain storms and weakly organize them, but no blockbuster line of squalls are expected. Drier air will be moving in aloft, however, increasing the potential for large hail and strong downdrafts in some of the stronger cells that do develop. As stated, the atmosphere will also be quite moist and storms will have the potential for blinding downpours leading to quick ponding of water in low-lying/poor drainage areas as well as rapid rises on flashier creeks and streams since the ground has significantly moistened over the last month. An additional half into to inch of rain could fall today with localized higher amounts in heavier storms. Further north and east, across northern New York and New England, thunder will be less common within the area of precipitation as it runs into more stable air, becoming more of a stratiform event. Here rainfall amounts will be less, on the order of a quarter to half an inch. Even further northeast, over northern Maine, rain should hold off for much of the day with merely an increase in clouds after a frosty start. Temperatures will only climb into the upper 50’s to low 60’s across these areas, about 10 degrees below normal for early June. Under the clouds and precipitation across the remainder of northern New York and New England temperatures will be held down, remaining in the 50’s until reaching the warm front. In the warm sector temperatures will be a humid 65-75°F while behind the front temperatures will be around those readings but will less humidity and partly to mostly cloudy skies.

The weakening low moves towards the mouth of the St.Lawrence River tonight, spreading rainfall across the remainder of New England with storms in the warm sector across southern New England weakening with the loss of daytime heating and the intrusion of a more stable maritime airmass. Rainfall tonight over northern New England should range from a quarter to a third of an inch. The front will more-or-less wash out over the region leaving a very moist low level airmass in place, leading to the development of low clouds, drizzle, mist and localized dense fog during the overnight hours. Temperatures won’t fall far from their daily highs with the thick cloud cover overhead. Lows will range from the upper 40’s to low 50’s across the north with upper 50’s to mid 60’s across the south.

The soupy airmass will remain in place during the day on Wednesday with much of the day spent under thick cloud cover. There will be some breaks, especially west of the Appalachians, but even here skies will be mostly cloudy to start and with the next system fast approaching by the late afternoon only a small window for fair skies will exist during midday. Temperatures should climb into the upper 60’s to mid 70’s. Meanwhile, east of the Appalachians it will be damp and dreary throughout the day, with low clouds, fog and drizzle for most locales. This marine layer will keep temperatures suppressed in the 60’s to low 70’s, very little diurnal variation here. Lingering showers across northern New England will also keep things quite miserable outside and temperatures here will be even cooler, only in the 50’s.




Mid-term - Issued - 6/09 @5:25am


Another significant shortwave/surface low will cut across the Northeast Wednesday night and Thursday. Moist southerly flow markedly increases ahead of this system with the nose of a 30kt low-level jet punching into the Northeast delivering copious amounts of Gulf moisture. Rain and thunderstorms will spread over the region from southwest to northeast with a wide swath of 1-2 inch rainfall totals expected. By Thursday evening much of the precipitation associated with this low pressure will pull into New England with areas to the west seeing a brief break. Temperatures should remain below normal by a couple degrees for highs but remain several degrees above normal for lows yielding slightly above normal temperatures during the period. By Friday models begin to diverge as some show another area of low pressure moving along a stationary front during the early morning left behind from Thursday’s system bringing another round of showers and storms while others show the front dropping south with high pressure building down from the Great Lakes. Either solution looks plausible at this point and the best chances for fair weather should be around the Great Lakes to the St.Lawrence Valley region. Temperatures on Friday will solely depend on whether or not precipitation falls and where it falls.


Long-term - Issued - 6/09 @5:25am


Another weak disturbance will push towards the Northeast on Saturday but with less moisture around and an anemic disturbance aloft expect any activity to remain widely scattered at best, mainly across the southern half of the region. Temperatures should remain near average for mid-June. Another deeper trough begins to carve out across the Great Lakes and Northeast on Sunday and Monday. Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage once again as moisture increases in southwesterly flow ahead of the trough. Stronger winds aloft also look to impinge on the region as well, possibly setting the stage for severe weather. Temperatures will continue to run close to average or slightly above with clouds keeping temperatures a few more degrees warmer than normal at night then they are cooler than normal during the day.

WAHT! this weather is great for fishing. strippers love this weather, the white water and roungh seas give them great cover when the come close to shore to hit the bait. just toss that lure behind the wave as it come in and theyll nail it. surfcasting is great in a storm

Up here we haven't had the rains you folks to the south have had. How are your gardens faring?

My beets and squash, etc., are up at last, and we have lots of green tomatoes growing.

NEwxguy...where in NJ was the hail? Got a link to a story? My daughter is down there this week for work.

April or May setup this weekend with a cutoff upper low setting up on the east coast,certainly not typical for the latter half of June. Tomatoe plants are doing ok for now,but this is certainly going to promote leaf fungus if we don't get some sun and dry weather.

Strange thing about that storm yesterday
When I walked out of the House yesterday when it was at its peak, the sky was pitch black
and I thought we were in for it,
but we had a beautiful breeze coming in from the south and it was perfectly clear over us
Sure wish I had my camera then!

WOW~! Sorry I missed the storm chase day.
How on Earth did we all sit quiet for a whole day after Sully said he was heading out on a chase?!
Glad you came back to tell the tale, Sully.
Looking forward to the pics.

I was sidelined for two weeks with a mean bug.
On the mend now, I hope.

Took training on Tuesday to be a home care provider
and may decide to work at an Adult Day program.
We'll see. Would be part time either way.

As I write we have some storms building over on the NY side, about to come across Lake Champlain.
And Hubby has just left for an evening of sailing races on Mallett's Bay. Heh.

Sulli:

Did you ever get back from your storm chase? We had some interesting storms in Southern PA the last couple of days as Blizz has probably mentioned.


Yup! Got a couple good pics too. The storm sort of petered out as it got closer but we still ran into some pea-sized hail and some heavy downpours. The lightning really tailed off and I knew that her best times had past.

Blizz,

I'm getting the cameras ready as we speak.

The vortex sig is gone but what these storms tend to do here is travel down the Delaware River Valley. The topography seems to catch these storms and head them on a more southerly trajectory than their original motion prior to reaching the valley.

Looks like that storm is passing over Camp Equinok. I spent many a summer there.
Stay safe.

Gorgeous v notch/hook echo. Looks like another left mover supercell like the one in Chester County. Careful up there.

Good morning Sullivan!
It's a cool 56 here. We got .47" so far.

I agree, thoroughbred racing is exciting. We live about 1/2hr from Saratoga and usually go a few times a season.

We've managed to put in a veggie garden about 3'x30' with onion, lettuce, radish, tomatoes,beans, peas and various gourds that will enjoy the drink.

Also, we now have 23 chickens (layers). None are the "normal" type. There are endangered/critical/heritage types (polish,silky and 11 other types).

Here's a pic my brother-in-law took w/his cell phone on 5/23.
