OCCURRED OR ARE OCCURRING.





FINALLY ARRIVED HOME - From Atlanta, Georgia

WEATHER, was the main major factor in one of Amtrak's most delayed trains; The Crescent 20.
From New Orleans the train began with this delay up to Charlotte, NC. It was nearly impossible to make up that time.
NWS had flood warnings for many areas along along the track keeping the train running at 15 mph, 20 mph the fastest it could go.
Already showing up 3 hours late at the Atlanta Peachtree Amtrak Station, the train announced these news of the speeds ahead.
I tried to sleep some hours, very uncomfortable, as the train made its way through South Carolina and we were still there the next morning.

At Charlotte, NC Station things finally turned to the good side for us the frustrated passengers. Crossing North Carolina and Virginia at speeds near 80 mph trying to recover the lost time but it was too late.

Virginia, the longest state to cross even if you go at 80 mph it took over 6 hours at such speeds (stopping at Danville, Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Culpepper, Manassas and Alexandria).

As a way to calm down tensions, it was decided to give out free food to all passengers.

By 8:30 PM last night (Dec 22) reaching Washington DC, many people in the car I was at left relieved since that was their destination but not me. I knew I was not even close yet to New York. And knowing I had to wait 2 hours and 40 minutes to board the next train to my hometown.

Amtrak was not able to provide any information about the train stops ahead, many people canceled their reservations, others just got off finding a better way to go. I asked the conductor when the train was going to arrive to New York and he told me anytime between 12 AM to 5 AM. ( I was socked)
Crescent 20 arrival time was after 1 PM to New York

What a ride that was... 27.5 hours long when it should have been around 19 hours long

I know it was the weather's fault, not the train.
As you see, weather is a big player everywhere and for anything

I still enjoy riding Amtrak.

COMMENT ABOUT THE 12Z SATURDAY ( midday) OPERATIONAL GFS .. (yes I know it looks like a new england snowstorm but its not)

As I stated repeatedly over the past several days with regard to the January2-3 East Coast snowstorm threat... The operational or regular weather models such as the operational GFS... European ...and models have been in strong disagreement with their own ensembles.

That is to say that the GFS ensembles has been pretty strong with the signal for potential significant East Coast snowstorm. But the operational regular GFS has not been.

The European ensemble has been pretty strong with a signal for significant East Coast snowstorm JAN 2-3 . But the operational run up into early Saturday morning and also been showing nothing like in East Coast snowstorm.

And the same goes two for the Canadian and even the Navy model.
As you can see from the previous post early on Saturday morning the operational European model finally moved towards the ENSEMBLE mean . Which in my opinion is a significant turning point.

The new Saturday midday 12z GFS has now come out and a continues to be a clueless model with regard to East Coast snowstorms. The 12z SAT operational or regular GFS is STILL not in agreement with its own GFS ENSEMBLE from early this morning.

Keep in Mind that 12 and 24 hours ago the operational GFS was actually taking the system for January 3 well inland so that the rain snow line was pushed into Albany and Boston!!! LOL .

this Saturday run of the GFS ...even though would seem to show a promising snowstorm for the northeast and specifically New England ...has come considerably further to the SOUTH so with anything one can make the argument that this is a south trend.

The forecast process does not stop and the trends do not come to an End simply because the model gives you the solution that you WANT to see . It does NOT work that way. That doesn't mean that if you are one of those fanatically aggressive and irrational in NYC CT northern NJ you cannot latch onto the 12z operational GFS if you want to. You most certainly can do so if you so se desire But it has always been my experience to use science over snow fantasy

Max, in your post #44 you stated it correctly, the low too close to shore, and no cold high pressure to our North or NE to feed in cold air. I think your map, and the Accuweather Map will be darn close. Maybe I'd push the rain/snow area a bit further North, but who knows for sure. We'll see. For sure the I95 corridor will not get any snow,(unless you take 95 up into N.H. or Maine.)


Good morning all

Yes, Larry. Im going to update this map later today.
Look at the snowfall map from the NYC NWS... they have snow accumulating close to our north

Good evening all

Hey Larry, I need your help to figure this out

A coastal low could form and hit us this weekend (Sunday) but we are not expected to see any snow with it since it'll come too close to the shore. And there is no solid arctic high above it to provide cold air needed to a big snowstorm

this is what I mean (GFS at 81 hours)


then the storm depends to 988 mb


I don't see the storm too close to land really. Other than for Nantucket.
The Euro has the storm further away from land... the only thing we'll need is the cold injection which we lack.

High temperatures in the 40s for this weekend are also a problem for big snow

From Accuweather

The South will also turn colder next week, but the dramatic departures from normal that was experienced in November will not be repeated.
Despite the cold being in place, AccuWeather.com Lead Long Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok does not expect a major winter storm to unfold next week.
"The weather pattern from next Monday through Thursday will yield multiple lighter snow events that track from eastern Montana to the Midwest and Northeast," Pastelok stated.

One or two snow events could even drop down to Denver.
"Each snow event will not produce a lot of snow but still enough to cause slippery spots."
Pastelok does anticipate a major East Coast winter storm to unfold around Jan. 6-8, but a noticeable change in the weather should follow.
After a quick blast of arctic air in the storm's wake, the weather pattern should transition to one with fewer cold shots and storms for the Midwest and Northeast.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
848 PM EST WED DEC 25 2013

.SYNOPSIS...
A FRONTAL SYSTEM APPROACHES FROM THE GREAT LAKES TONIGHT. ON
THURSDAY...AN EARLY MORNING WARM FRONTAL PASSAGE WILL BE FOLLOWED
BY AN AFTERNOON COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM
THE SOUTH AND WEST INTO THE WEEKEND. A COASTAL LOW MAY AFFECT THE
REGION SUNDAY INTO SUNDAY NIGHT. A STRONG COLD FRONT MOVES ACROSS
THE REGION MONDAY...WITH ARCTIC HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING INTO THE
REGION THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.

POTENTIAL IS INCREASING FOR A COASTAL STORM SUN-SUN NIGHT...WITH INCREASING ENSEMBLE AND OPERATIONAL MODELS SUPPORT. THE
KEY PLAYERS ARE SHORTWAVE ENERGY CURRENTLY OVER THE GULF OF
ALASKA....AMPLIFYING THE BROAD NORTHERN US TROUGHING...AND SHUTTLING
SOUTHERN STREAM ENERGY OVER WEST TEXAS UP TOWARDS THE REGION. HAVE
INCREASE POPS TO CHANCE RANGE FOR NOW WITH THIS COASTAL SYSTEM AS
MODELS ARE JUST CONVERGING ON THIS...AND DUE TO USUAL PREDICTABILITY
ISSUES WITH NORTHERN/SOUTHERN STREAM PHASING. WITH LACK OF POLAR
HIGH TO THE NORTH...THERE WILL BE A DEARTH OF COLD AIR FOR THIS
SYSTEM TO WORK WITH...LENDING TO A POTENTIAL WET SNOW ACROSS
INTERIOR AND MAINLY RAIN ALONG THE COAST.


GENERAL GUIDANCE AGREEMENT EXISTS IN HUDSONS BAY POLAR VORTEX AND
ASSOCIATED ARCTIC HIGH SINKING SOUTH INTO THE NE US FOR EARLY TO MID
NEXT WEEK. BUT MODEL SPREAD EXISTS IN HOW EXACTLY THE POLAR VORTEX
EVOLVES DURING THIS PERIOD...AND TIMING OF SHORTWAVE ENERGY AROUND
IT. MAIN STORY WILL BE A RETURN TO COLD WEATHER...BUT UNCERTAINTY
EXISTS IN DETAILS OF SENSIBLE WEATHER DURING THIS TIME PERIOD.
SLIGHT CHANCE POPS HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED FOR THE MIDWEEK PERIOD WITH
POTENTIAL FOR CLIPPER SYSTEMS...BUT UNCERTAINTY IN DETAILS.

Nah, wasn't worried. When friends travel, I just whisper a prayer and trust that they will be okay. I did however monitor you blog for progress reports.

Yeah, the trip didn't go exactly according to plan, but if life went according to plan all the time, things would quickly become boring and we'd have no stories to tell.

Make the most of whatever unexpected twists life throws at you.

That's probably one of the secrets to happiness. I'm still working on the others.

days of the year (train wise anyway) for your trip home.
Just glad you made it home safe...if somewhat behind schedule.

BTW...need to change your local forecast sticker from Atlanta. No rush.

Merry Christmas Max. Hope that tomorrow is an even better day.

Take care friend.
