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

By: Dr. Jeff Masters, 3:31 PM GMT on November 26, 2013

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.)

Some take systems and blow them out of proportion.

Their exuberance over the potential impact on Central Florida, becomes a little bit too much after a while.

If every front, tropical disturbance, and rain shower actually did what was prognosticated by some that show up here - well, Central Florida would have a National Disaster declared every week.


where in that quote did anyone say Florida would be devastated..everyone just needs to give it a break..did anyone die behind Scott or Largo statement..did anyone call in work when they read their comments..is there a contest here I dont know about being right or wrong..I mean the whole day this blog has been harping on Florida and its weather..

I live in NC..

if I say you ALL were right, can we move on??..
The tornado threat is there, but any tornadoes will most likely be EF0 to EF1 and very fast moving.

So unless you are in a mobile home, you should be ok. None of these will be sweep the home off the foundation tornadoes.

January 6, 1995 We left Charlotte, in a rain/sleet/freezing rain mix about noon and headed to New Bern, NC. The further east we drove - the warmer it got and by the time we reached New Bern the temperature was in the 80's. That night there were severe storms in the area with embedded tornados and I believe there was one death. Sounds like a similar situation setting up.

No, there is no contest.

But for same reason "it's gonna be a cat 5" statement draws derision everytime a tropical depression stirs up . . the same can be said for statements made regarding any weather that approaches Florida, and the enthusiasm for the potential for doom, that is expressed.

This is not whether someone is right or wrong, but how they choose to do it and what is implied by their statements.

Is that common this time of year? I know the SE USA has elevated tornado risks this time of the year in general.

BTW, here in Austin, the sun came out for the first time in a couple of days and we now just popped through the 50 degree mark. Its been in the upper 30s and barely the lower 40s for the last few days. I picked up about an inch and a half of the wet stuff over the last couple of days though so no complaints here. I was hoping for some frozen precip as we were being teased with it hanging at 33...Rare for Central TX to get any snow this early though.


Totally agree. Texas - November - Snow????

I've been watching this rotating storm NW of Clearwater, FL. It now has a special marine warning for the possibility that it is producing a waterspout. It'll move onshore eventually, but I'm not sure the rotation will last.

I had to check that out. It wasn't quite in the 80s in New Bern but they did rise from a morning low of 19 to a high of 68 by midnight.

Tropical Cyclone Advisory #26
VERY SEVERE CYCLONIC STORM LEHAR (BOB07-2013)
2:30 AM IST November 27 2013
=====================================

Cyclone Warning for Andhra Pradesh coast (Orange Message)

At 21:00 PM UTC, the very severe cyclonic storm LEHAR over southeast and adjoining central Bay of Bengal moved west northwestward and now lays center near 13.2N 87.5E, about 590 km west northwest of Port Blair, 760 km east southeast of Machillipatnam, 700 km east southeast of Kakinada and 670 km southeast of Kalingapatnam.

The system would intensify further and move west-northwestwards and cross Andhra Pradesh coast between Machillipatnam and Kalingapatnam near Kakinada around noon Thursday.

According to satellite imagery, the Dvorak intensity of the system is T4.0. Associated broken low/medium clouds with embedded intense to very intense convection is seen over Bay of Bengal between 11.5N to 16.0N and 84.0E to 89.0E. The lowest cloud top temperature is about -93C. Convection has increased over south of the system.The central dense overcast pattern persists.

3 minute sustained winds near the center is 75 knots with gusts of 85 knots. The state of the sea is phenomenal around the center of the system. The central pressure of very severe cyclonic storm LEHAR is 982 hPa.

The cyclonic storm LEHAR lies to the south of the upper tropospheric ridge which runs along 17.0N. The low level convergence along with low level relative vorticity has increased during past six hrs and are favorable for further intensification. The sea surface temperature is about 28-29C. The vertical wind shear of horizontal wind has decreased to 5-10 knot (low) during past six hours which is favorable for further intensification. The Madden Jullian oscillation index lies over phase 4 with amplitude less than 1. Numerical weather prediction models suggest that Madden Jullian oscillation would continue in phase 4 during next 5 days with amplitude less than 1. These are supportive for intensification.

Under the influence of upper level anticyclonic circulation the cyclone has tracked more west northwestward. The system would move west northwestwards for next 12 hours and after that the northerly component may increase and the direction of movement would gradually shift from west northwest to slight northwest

As the system would come nearer to November 28th close to Andhra Pradesh, it would experience colder sea surface temperatures and also there is a possibility of increased wind shear. All these may lead to slight weakening of the system before landfall and rapid weakening after the landfall.

Forecast and Intensity
========================
9 HRS: 14.0N 86.0E - 80-85 knots (Very Severe Cyclonic Storm)
21 HRS: 15.0N 83.9E - 90-100 knots (Very Severe Cyclonic Storm)
45 HRS: 17.1N 80.1E - 35-40 knots (Cyclonic Storm)
69 HRS: 19.5N 78.2E - Low Pressure Area

Storm Surge Guidance
=====================
Storm surge of height about 2.0-3.0 meters above astronomical tide would inundate low lying areas of west and east Godavari, Vishakhapatnam and Krishna districts of Andhra Pradesh and Yanam district of Puducherry at the time of landfall.

I am not upset by it, more often amused . . . but it does get old.

I have been banned before when trying to defuse outrageous statements - with a dose of reality. It was "misinterpreted" as a personal attack (and immediately cleared up with the individual involved).

Attempts to have any reasonable discussion regarding what is actually happening, and you are labeled a "hater" (words used earlier).

Look, you have no problem with it.

I have no problem with others trying to tamp it down either. If you are going to make, what is perceived as outrageous statements, people will mock you. That is patently obvious here. :)

And, I disagree when anything is misrepresented . . . even issues related to AGW.

Agree 100%. I tried to reason and got called a "hater." Last night it was "idiots." And you wonder why we are over his hype.....
From what I've seen, the one tornado that did touchdown in Florida this morning should get rated an EF0 for downing trees, blowing away a fence, and damaging the porch of a house.

On a side note, the wind is really kicking here with these showers. Strong low-level jet tonight.
Mercer PA already has 6 inches of snow on the ground.

Why can't we be under a Winter Weather Advisory instead?

... Hard freeze warning in effect from 7 PM Wednesday to 9 am CST
Thursday...

The National Weather Service in New Orleans has issued a hard
freeze warning... which is in effect from 7 PM Wednesday to 9 am
CST Thursday.

* Timing... temperatures are expected to drop below freezing
between 7 and 10 PM Wednesday and remain below freezing until 9
am Thanksgiving morning. The duration of temperatures 26 degrees
or lower is expected to be 3 to 7 hours.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A hard freeze warning means temperatures in the mid 20s or lower
are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops
and other sensitive vegetation... and possibly freeze unprotected
pipes.

Pets are also subject to the extreme cold. Keep pets indoors as
much as possible. If this is not possible... make sure outdoor pets
have warm dry shelter... and provide sufficient food and fresh
unfrozen water. Be particularly careful with portable heaters...
there is a danger of fire or poisonous fumes.

To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor
pipes... pipes should be wrapped... drained... or allowed to drip
slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain
their systems... or cover any above-ground pipes to protect them
from freezing.

For most of us it is not a "gang up." It's simply trying to bring reason to what was really going on. He brings it on himself with the "multiple tornadoes on the ground comments" and adds fuel with the "idiots" and "haters" comments simply because we don't agree with his hype.

It's just about over now - until he next time.....
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.

Helps if I cut and paste the appropriate NWS statement.
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.

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.

Morehead city hit by tornado??? When I last looked there was decent rotation heading towards them.
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!

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...

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).

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.

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.

hmm? The winds must go calm and no clouds in sight for there to be a freeze I'm thinking with this airmass, not the same cold airmasses you would see in January or February and I think it would be more believable if there was already cold air in place.


... Freeze watch in effect from late Wednesday night through
Thursday morning...

The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay area - Ruskin FL has
issued a freeze watch... which is in effect from late Wednesday
night through Thursday morning.

* Temperature... low temperatures in the upper 20s to lower 30 for
a duration of 2 to 4 hours.

* Impacts... sensitive plants and pets should be protected or
brought indoors. The current forecast temperatures and durations
below freezing should not be enough to worry about the potential
for frozen pipes.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A freeze watch is issued for the potential of a widespread and
damaging freeze within 24 to 48 hours. During the freeze
period... temperatures may remain below 32 degrees for more than
2 hours.

Front wheel drive, 4 wheel drive or all wheel. Here in the south we only need two in the rear for most applications, but up there it is handy to have driven all three northern versions for practice. I used to go do high speed doughnuts in a big parking lot everytime a small snow would cover it. The cops were cool back then as long as I didn't crash into the Mc Donalds or break through the front door of KMart. Just skidden around. All the kids did it.

Attached is a new video by STEREO Behind COR2 showing Comet ISON approaching on the bottom left and a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that appears to be directed towards it. If it is, it is possible that the dusty tail could be swept away upon impact.

Word from Morehead City, NC, is there is a good bit of damage and wide power outages. Nasty storm roll through about an hour ago. #ncwx
Okay, so it looks like the Orlando area will get .25"-.33" from this line of showers/heavy showers that will be moving through over the next couple hours. The severe weather threat appears to be minimal here, and I doubt we will even get strong winds mixing down to the surface (maybe breezy or gusty to 30 mph). Locations where this line just moved through on the West Coast reported nothing remarkable wind-wise, at least the locations I checked. I am thankful for the rain and welcome the impending chill to get me into the holiday mood for Thanksgiving.

Technical Notes
Since Comet ISON currently has a trajectory that is nearly a perfect parabola, we were able to simplify the calculations in the script by using the equations for perfect parabolic motion. To put this in perspective, Comet ISON currently has an eccentricity of 1.000002 so we used 1. We expect these values, along with the other elements, to change only slightly as more observations are made. We will keep updating the code as new elements are determined. If the eccentricity happens to change enough to produce any significant errors, we will apply a different set of equations in the script to keep the calculator within a reasonable error.

Mysterious Bang, Explosion Heard Near Montreal Sparks Twitter Speculation
Huffington Post Canada | Posted: 11/26/2013 10:46 pm EST

FOLLOW: Blue Flash, Explosion Montreal, Explosion Quebec, Meteor Quebec, Montreal Explosion, Montreal Meteor, Mysterious Explosion Montreal, Quebec Meteor, Canada News
A strange bang and flash of light sighted near Montreal sparked many, many tweets of speculation on Tuesday evening as Quebeckers wondered what just happened.

The Montreal Gazette reported that Hudson, St-Lazare and other towns near Montreal heard an explosion and saw a flash of blue-green light around 8 p.m. ET. People as far as upstate New York and Cornwall, Ont. reported seeing the flash.

But what was the cause?

It's not clear yet, but the guesses on social media range from explosion to meteor to UFO.

Andrew Fazekas, a member of the Royal Astronomical Society, told the CBC it could have been a shockwave caused by a meteorite.

Fazekas told CTV that a meteor travels at up to 60,000 kilometres per hour and could emit a sonic boom as it enters the lower part of the atmosphere. That could explain the bang heard across the region.

He said it could take a few days for officials to gather evidence and determine whether or not it was a meteor.


The Gazette reports that neither Environment Canada nor the Sret du Qubec were able to say what the source of the bang was on Tuesday night

Where s the money? Nearly 4 years after quake, Haitians still in tents
Posted on November 26, 2013



November 26, 2013 PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Eight-year-old Widlene Gabriel has lived nearly half her life in a camp for the hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the devastating January 2010 earthquake in desperately poor Haiti. As the fourth anniversary of the disaster approaches, more than 170,000 Haitians are still living in makeshift housing, in extremely precarious conditions and sometimes facing eviction. Widlene and her family live in a tent on a private lot along a main road linking the capital Port-au-Prince to the eastern suburb of Petionville. The girl has never been to school and spends her days staring blankly at cars and trucks speeding along the road nearby. On January 12, 2010, the roof of our house fell on top of our heads. I wasn t hurt but our house fell apart and so we came here, Widlene recalls, her bare feet covered in dust. Manette Nazius, a mother of six, says Widlene is hardly the only child seemingly left behind. All the kids here are in the same boat. All days are the same. They drag around all day.

Seismic rock ruptures reported in Kuwait
Posted on November 26, 2013



November 26, 2013 – KUWAIT – The national seismic network at Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) said on Tuesday that it had detected seismic waves in some of the network’s stations, at 10:06 a.m., but no activity that classifies as an earthquake. The network’s press release indicated the investigation into the observation showed that the readings were caused by rock ruptures. It further explained that a seismic wave is a wave of energy that travels through the Earth’s layers, and could be the result of an earthquake, explosion, or a volcano that imparts low-frequency acoustic energy, and also some types of human activity. On October 29, 2013, the region of Kuwait was hit by a 3.7 magnitude tremor. -KUNA

Where s the money? Nearly 4 years after quake, Haitians still in tents
Posted on November 26, 2013



November 26, 2013 PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti Eight-year-old Widlene Gabriel has lived nearly half her life in a camp for the hundreds of thousands of people displaced by the devastating January 2010 earthquake in desperately poor Haiti. As the fourth anniversary of the disaster approaches, more than 170,000 Haitians are still living in makeshift housing, in extremely precarious conditions and sometimes facing eviction. Widlene and her family live in a tent on a private lot along a main road linking the capital Port-au-Prince to the eastern suburb of Petionville. The girl has never been to school and spends her days staring blankly at cars and trucks speeding along the road nearby. On January 12, 2010, the roof of our house fell on top of our heads. I wasn t hurt but our house fell apart and so we came here, Widlene recalls, her bare feet covered in dust. Manette Nazius, a mother of six, says Widlene is hardly the only child seemingly left behind. All the kids here are in the same boat. All days are the same. They drag around all day. In fact, we are living without hope and we all feel abandoned, she says. An estimated 250,000 people were killed in the quake, and the rebuilding process has been slow in Haiti, which was already one of the world s poorest countries when disaster struck.
In the immediate aftermath, more than 1.5 million people were homeless.

The low is reported as slowly southeast at 5 knots parallel to the coast.

Tropical Cyclone Alessia has re-developed into a tropical cyclone.

GALES with gusts to 60 knots are currently being experienced along the Northern Territory coast between Port McArthur and the Queensland Border. Gales are expected to extend east to Mornington Island in Queensland tonight and possibly further to Kurumba early on Thursday.

ABNORMALLY HIGH TIDES could cause MINOR FLOODING on the southern Gulf of Carpentaria coast between Port McArthur and Karumba tonight and tomorrow.

HEAVY RAIN is likely to cause localised flooding in the Roper-McArthur District and coastal areas in Queensland Gulf Country west of Mornington Island during today and Thursday.

VERY SEVERE CYCLONIC STORM LEHAR (BOB07-2013)
8:30 AM IST November 27 2013
=====================================

Cyclone Warning for Andhra Pradesh coast (Orange Message)

At 3:00 AM UTC, the very severe cyclonic storm LEHAR over west central and adjoining southern Bay of Bengal moved west northwestward at around 8 knots during the past 6 hours and now lays center near 13.5N 86.5E, about 650 km east southeast of Machillipatnam and 600 km east southeast of Kakinada.

The system would intensify further and move west northwestwards and cross Andhra Pradesh coast near Machillipatnam around Thursday afternoon.

According to satellite imagery, the Dvorak intensity of the system is T4.0. Associated broken low/medium clouds with embedded intense to very intense convection is seen over Bay of Bengal between 11.0N to 16.5N and 82.5E to 89.0E. The lowest cloud top temperature is about -88C. Convection has increased over south of the system.The central dense overcast pattern persists.

3 minute sustained winds near the center is 75 knots with gusts of 85 knots. The state of the sea is phenomenal around the center of the system. The central pressure of very severe cyclonic storm is 982 hPa.

The cyclonic storm LEHAR lies to the south of the upper tropospheric ridge which runs along 17.0N. The low level convergence along with low level relative vorticity has remained same during past six hours. The sea surface temperature is about 28-29C. The vertical wind shear of horizontal wind is low to moderate (10-20 knots). Under the influence of upper level ridge to the north of the system. The cyclone has tracked more west northwestwards. The system would move west northwestwards until landfall.

As the system would come nearer to November 28th near Andhra Pradesh coast, it would experience colder sea surface temperatures and also there is a possibility of increase in wind shear. All these may lead to slight weakening of the system before landfall and rapid weakening after the landfall.

The consensus among the numerical weather prediction models has increased with respect to track. The forecast track and intensity is based on consensus numerical weather prediction and synoptic guidance.

Forecast and Intensity
=========================
9 HRS: 14.2N 84.8E - 80-85 knots (Very Severe Cyclonic Storm)
21 HRS: 15.2N 82.6E - 80-85 knots (Very Severe Cyclonic Storm)
45 HRS: 17.6N 78.8E - 30 knots (Deep Depression)

Storm Surge Guidance
========================
Storm surge of height about 2.0-3.0 meters above astronomical tide would inundate low lying areas of west and east Godavari, Guntur and Krishna districts of Andhra Pradesh and Yanam district of Puducherry and about 1 meter near Visakhapatnam district at the time of landfall.

Additional Information
======================
Tropical Cyclone Alessia has reformed near the coast over southern Gulf of Carpentaria waters. Recent central position estimates and speed of movement are good based on tightly curved spiral bands evident on Mornington Island radar data.

Gales were observed at Centre Island between 5:30 and 10:30 am this morning with maximum gusts reaching 57 knots [105 km/h]. Overnight scatterometer data indicated that the area of gales was confined to the southeast sector of the tropical low. However, all passes today have missed the southern Gulf of Carpentaria.

At 0600 UTC Dvorak analysis vielded DT=3.0/3.0 based on an 0.6 wrap curved band on visible imagery. FT based on MET and DT.

The environment is currently favorable with low vertical wind shear, deep moisture and good outflow in the eastern semicircle. The Tropical Cyclone is located in a break in the 500 hPa ridge and is moving ESE with the peripheral ridge to the NE the dominant mechanism for the short term. It is expected to remain on this track, moving parallel to the coast for the next one to two days before slowing and then moving west, moving inland over the Gulf Country on Friday as the ridge to the NE weakens and a ridge building over central Australia becomes the main steering influence. Intensity is currently held at category 1 due to the restraining influence of nearby land and a gradual increase in vertical wind shear during the forecast period.

Good morning folks. I hope you're all alright.


Yesterday in Makarska/Croatia/Adriatic Sea/Mediterranean.

Wikipedia:
Bora (Bosnian: bura, Bulgarian: бора, Croatian: bura, Greek: μπόρα, βοράς, Italian: bora, Slovene: burja, Turkish: bora, Polish: burza) is a northern to north-eastern katabatic wind in the Adriatic, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Italy, Greece, Slovenia, Poland and Turkey.
The same root is found in the name of the Greek mythological figure of Boreas/Βορέας, the North Wind. ...
Near the towns of Senj, Stara Novalja, Karlobag and the southern portal of the Sveti Rok Tunnel in Croatia, it can reach speeds of up to 220 kilometers per hour [= 137 mph]. On 21 December 1998 the speed of a gust on the Maslenica Bridge (north of Zadar) was measured at a record speed of 248 kilometres per hour. During 22 to 25 December 2003 on Kralja Tomislava highway near Sveti Rok Tunnel new record was measured at speed of 304 kilometers per hour. ...
Nice to see and read, that ISON still keeps its ingredients together :)

"I will admit that I was pretty worried yesterday morning when reports of lower production rates came in," says Matthew Knight of the Lowell Observatory and NASA's Comet ISON Observation Campaign. "However, the STEREO-A brightness has increased steadily over the subsequent 36 hr, and I'm more optimistic again. My off-the-cuff thought is that there was an [outburst of dust, which dampened the emission lines] from roughly Nov 20-22, and it has returned to brightening again."

Geologists have discovered gold and other valuable mining interests in Haiti. There is a power grab in the works. The attempt by the so called Christian organization to steal their children just made matters worse.

A cold and stiff northerly flow is developing in the wake of a
Winter storm centre that is tracking up the Eastern Seaboard of the
United States into Eastern Quebec.

As a result, conditions may become somewhat favourable for snow
squalls to develop off of Georgian Bay by late this afternoon. There
is potential for local snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm tonight
Across the regions, with Barrie being near the eastern edge of the
threat area.

Motorists should expect poor winter driving conditions to develop
from low visibility in bursts of heavier snow and local blowing snow.

Environment Canada is closely monitoring this situation and snow
squall watches or warnings may be issued later today or tonight as
required.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as
warnings may be required or extended.

Tropical Cyclone Advisory #30
VERY SEVERE CYCLONIC STORM LEHAR (BOB07-2013)
14:30 PM IST November 27 2013
=====================================

Cyclone Warning for Andhra Pradesh coast (Orange Message)

At 9:00 AM UTC, the very severe cyclonic storm LEHAR over west central and adjoining southern Bay of Bengal moved west northwestward at about 8 knots during the past 6 hours and now lays center near 14.0N 85.5E, about 520 km east southeast of Machillipatnam and 470 km southeast of Kakinada.

It would move west northwestwards, weaken gradually and cross Andhra Pradesh coast near Machillipatnam as a cyclonic storm around Thursday afternoon.

According to satellite imagery, the current Dvorak intensity of the system is T4.0. Associated broken low/medium clouds with embedded moderate to intense convection is seen over Bay of Bengal between 10.0N to 17.0N and 81.0E to 88.0E. Convection has decreased rapidly during past three hours with respect to its organization and intensity. The lowest cloud top temperature is about -65C. The latest scaterrometry observations also indicate weakening in the wind field.

3 minute sustained winds near the center is 65 knots with gusts of 75 knots. The state of the sea is phenomenal around the center. The central pressure of the severe cyclonic storm is 986 hPa.

The cyclonic storm LEHAR lies to the south of the upper tropospheric ridge which runs along 17.0N. The low level convergence along with low level relative vorticity has significantly decreased during past six hours. The vertical wind shear of horizontal wind has also increased marginally becoming moderate (15-20 knots). The cyclone has entered into a relatively colder sea area, also there is entrainment of dry and cold air from India into the periphery of the cyclone field. Under these circumstances, the very severe cyclone shows degeneration in intensity. As the system is expected to move over the colder area further nearer to the coast and there is possibility of increase in vertical wind shear and entraining dry and cold air, the system would weaken gradually. Due to strengthening of the upper level ridge to the north of the system, the northerly component of the movement is expected to increase during next 24 hours.

Forecast and Intensity
======================

TROPICAL CYCLONE ALESSIA, CATEGORY ONE (01U)
10:59 PM CST November 27 2013
==========================================

At 9:30 PM CST, Tropical Cyclone Alessia. Category One (991 hPa) located at 16.2S 137.5E or 130 km east of Borroloola and 190 km west northwest of Mornington Island has 10 minute sustained winds of 40 knots with gusts of 55 knots. The cyclone is reported as south southwest at 3 knots.

Gale Force Winds
==================
15 NM from the center in southwest quadrant
20 NM from the center in southeast quadrant
30 NM from the center in northwest quadrant
60 NM from the center in northeast quadrant

Dvorak Intensity: T3.0/3.0/D1.0/24 HRS

GALES with gusts to 50 knots are currently being experienced along the Northern Territory coast between Port Roper and the Queensland Border. Gales may extend east to Mornington Island in Queensland, and possibly further to Burketown on Friday if Tropical Cyclone Alessia take a more easterly track.

ABNORMALLY HIGH TIDES could cause MINOR FLOODING on the southern Gulf of Carpentaria coast between Port McArthur and Mornington Island.

HEAVY RAIN may lead to significant stream rises and flooding of low lying areas in the Roper-McArthur District and coastal areas in Queensland Gulf Country west of Mornington Island.

The Territory Controller advises residents from Port Roper to the Northern Territory/Queensland border that now is the time to make final preparations to your home shelter or identify which public emergency shelter to use. Public shelters are not open at this time.

Forecast and Intensity
========================
12 HRS: 16.6S 137.2E - 30 knots (Tropical Low)
24 HRS: 17.2S 136.9E - 25 knots (Tropical Low)
48 HRS: 17.0S 137.3E - 25 knots (Tropical Low)
72 HRS: 16.4S 135.9E - 20 knots(Tropical Low)

Additional Information
======================
Tropical Cyclone Alessia is currently located on the coast over southern Gulf of Carpentaria. Central position estimate and speed of movement are based on previous location on radar and the increase in westerly component of surface winds at Borroloola, Center Island and McArthur River Mine. Gales were observed at Center Island between 5:30 and 10:30 am this morning with maximum gusts reaching 57 knots [105 km/h]. Overnight scatterometer data indicated that the area of gales was confined to the southeast sector of the tropical low. However, all passes today have missed the southern Gulf of Carpentaria.

At 1200 UTC Dvorak analysis yielded DT=3.0 based on MET. Cloud features exhibit no curvature and is starting to show signs of shear from the west. Based on Mornington Island Radar the surface center appears to have crossed the coast near Wollogorang while the middle level circulation appears to continue towards the southeast on satellite. This is consistent with the system experiencing shear from the west. No significant dry air is evident on the Water Vapor imagery in the vicinity of the system.

Models vary in the strength of the shear with the GFS models the only ones keen on maintaining a southeast trend, all other models indicated southwest movement from 0000Z. Despite this, there is general consensus of slow movement over the next 24 hours or so.

Tropical Cyclone Watches/Warnings
==================================
A Cyclone WARNING is now current for coastal areas from Port Roper to Mornington Island

A Cyclone WATCH is now current for coastal areas from Mornington Island to Burketown

The Cyclone WATCH from Burketown to Karumba has been cancelled

Looks likee Atlanta is getting some heavy snow.

Not so much, just spitting almost microscopic little flurries. You have to look really hard to see them.
No heat at work this morning and the ac/heat repair guy says our roof where the unit is located is iced over. We are just South and on the Western side of Houston.  No wonder I can't hear the Pigeons  cooing overhead this morning.
Quoting 747. Sfloridacat5:

Most earliest snow ever recorded in SE TX yesterday, though it didn't stick.
Blizzard criteria being met but not enough for areal coverage for a warning.

Only Winter Storm Warning conditions around ASU.
