Record Setting Low Lifts North, Begins To Weaken
October 27, 2010

Satellite images show the intense storm that tracked north through Minnesota moving into southern Canada, with the cloud band associated with the cold front pushing east.

This storm set records for the lowest barometric pressure ever measured in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.  The pressure at Bigfork, MN dropped to 28.21″ while the pressure at Superior, WI bottomed out at 28.39″.  To put this in perspective, the lowest pressure ever measured in Baltimore was 28.51″ set during the blizzard of March 13, 1993.  Hurricane Earl, a category four storm with 145 mph winds, had a central pressure of 27.40″ as it approached Cape Hatteras in the early morning of September 2nd and a few weeks later, hurricane Karl, a category three storm with 120 mph winds, had a central pressure of 28.23″ as it approached Veracruz on the gulf coast of Mexico in the early morning of September 17th.  So this non-tropical storm had a pressure lower than a major hurricane as it moved through northern Minnesota!

The maps above show the severe weather reported yesterday and today.  After producing a couple dozen possible tornadoes yesterday and 300 reports of damaging winds, the severe weather is beginning to wane with far fewer reports of damaging winds and tornadoes as of late this afternoon.

As the cold front moves off the coast and out to sea, cooler air will gradually return to the mid Atlantic region Thursday night and Friday.

Powerful Storm Brings Blizzard and Tornadoes
October 26, 2010

An intense storm system centered over northeastern Minnesota Tuesday afternoon is responsible for more than a dozen reports of possible tornadoes, wind gusts over 70 mph, blizzard warnings in North Dakota, and records for the lowest barometric pressure ever recorded in the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. This storm will push a cold front through Maryland on Wednesday.  Showers and thunderstorms are likely as the front moves through with a return to more seasonal temperatures by the end of the week.  Some of the severe weather reports from the National Weather Service are listed below.

La Nina Winters In Baltimore
October 22, 2010

With a La Nina pattern in the Pacific (cooler than normal sea surface temperatures), there is no clear climate signal to determine what kind of winter we can expect around here.  We’ve had very snowy La Nina winters (62.5″ in 1995 – ’96) and La Nina winters with very little snow (6.2″ in 1950 – ’51).  But, if you look at all 19 La Nina winters since 1950, this pattern seems to produce winters with below normal snowfall.

Winter Outlook
October 21, 2010

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its winter outlook today and the strengthening La Nina in the Pacific Ocean does not provide a clear signal for what to expect this winter here in Maryland:

Northeast and Mid-Atlantic: equal chances for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and precipitation. Winter weather for these regions is often driven not by La Niña but by weather patterns over the northern Atlantic Ocean and Arctic. These are often more short-term, and are generally predictable only a week or so in advance. If enough cold air and moisture are in place, areas north of the Ohio Valley and into the Northeast could see above-average snow

New Tropical Development
October 20, 2010

A tropical wave in the northwest Caribbean is given a “high” chance by hurricane forecasters in Miami of becoming the next tropical cyclone.

The Tuesday evening satellite image shows a cluster of clouds with a slight hint of rotation south of Cuba. Forecast models indicate that this feature will likely meander in the western Caribbean for a number of days. It could become a tropical depression or tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours. If it were to become strong enough to be a named storm, it would be called Richard.

Super Typhoon
October 17, 2010

Hurricanes are referred to as typhoons in the western Pacific and because of oceans’ expanse, these storms can become quite powerful.

“Megi” has become what is referred to as a Super Typhoon.

The storm is packing with of 178 mph and is approaching the northern Philippine Islands.

The storm is expected to make landfall tonight with winds in excess of 150 mph and will likely be the most powerful and devastating storm to hit the Philippines in recent years.

The storm is forecast to move westward across the Philippine island of Luzon into the South China Sea and eventually turn northward toward Hong Kong.

John Collins

Moisture To Spare
October 7, 2010

The numbers for post summer rainfall are impressive:

  • 8.26″   September Rain
  • 0.92″   October Rain
  • 9.18″   Combined Total
  • 4.63″   Above Average Rainfall (Combined)

It looks like we will be getting a break from the soaking weather pattern.

One look at Thursday’s full disk satellite image shows an obvious lack of clouds over most of the U.S.

The lingering upper air disturbance over New England is moving out. The pattern has shifted tropical moisture out over the Atlantic. An upper air ridge of high pressure and resulting dry air dominates the lower 48 states. Stormy weather over the west coast will be trapped on the west side of the ridge for a while.

The bottom line is that we should stay dry for a few days, giving the ground a chance to dry out a little bit.

John Collins

More Rain On The Way
October 3, 2010

In the past week just over 7 inches of rain has fallen at BWI-Marshall, the location of the official rain gauge for Baltimore. Nearby, over ten inches has been measured.

Another rainmaker is on the way.

The mid-day satellite image for Sunday shows two systems bracketing Maryland. They will more or less combine to generate another soaker for the region.

The forecast map above shows expected conditions for Monday morning with a coastal low pressure area becoming the dominant weather feature. The most significant rainfall should occur on Monday.

  NWS STORM DATA.

...SUMMARY...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CONDUCTED A STORM SURVEY OF DAMAGE
THAT OCCURRED TO NORTHEAST ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY JUST NORTH OF
GIBSON ISLAND AND EAST OF LAKE SHORE IN THE COMMUNITY OF MILBURN.

AFTER INSPECTING THE DAMAGE ON THE GROUND...SPEAKING WITH SEVERAL
MILBURN RESIDENTS...SIFTING THROUGH NWS AND FAA RADAR DATA...AND
LOOKING THROUGH LOCAL WEATHER OBSERVATIONS...IT WAS DETERMINED
THAT A EF-0 TORNADO WITH MAXIMUM ESTIMATED WINDS OF 80 MPH MOVED
THROUGH THE AREA...AND PASSED WITHIN A HALF MILE OF A SCHOOL
COMPLEX THAT INCLUDES CHESAPEAKE HIGH... CHESAPEAKE BAY MIDDLE...
AND BODKIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

AT 9:46 AM ON THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 30TH AN EF-0 TORNADO FORMED OVER
CORNFIELD CREEK AND KNOCKED A SAILBOAT ON ITS SIDE. THE TORNADO
MOVED ACROSS THE CREEK AND INTO THE COMMUNITY OF MILBURN ON THE
SOUTHEAST SIDE OF MILBURN CIRCLE. SEVERAL TREES AND LARGE
BRANCHES WERE SNAPPED DOWN AND UPROOTED...MAINLY FROM SOUTHEAST TO
NORTHWEST. THERE WERE A FEW SMALLER BRANCHES THAT INDICATED A MUCH
WEAKER WIND IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. A BOAT HOUSE SUSTAINED SOME
SHINGLE DAMAGE ON ITS LEADING EDGE. A PIECE OF POOL FURNITURE
IMPACTED A DECORATIVE STONE WALL AND TOPPLED IT.

THE TORNADO MAXIMIZED ITS STRENGTH WITH WINDS ESTIMATED TO BE 80
MPH AS IT WENT ACROSS THE CIRCLE AND OVER HOUSES 49 THROUGH 55 ON
MILBURN CIRCLE. IN THAT AREA ABOUT TEN LARGE TREES WERE UPROOTED
OR SNAPPED OFF...SEVERAL OF THEM MAPLE TREES. A TREE FELL ON A
TRUCK. ANOTHER TREE CRUSHED A WORK SHED AND FELL INTO A POOL. A
FEW HOMES SUSTAINED MINOR SIDING AND SHINGLE DAMAGE. POWER WAS
KNOCKED OUT TO THE COMMUNITY. NEARLY ALL OF THE DAMAGE IN THIS
AREA WAS FROM SOUTHEAST TO NORTHWEST.

THE TORNADO LIFTED AND WEAKENED AS IT WENT INTO THE WOODS ON THE
NORTH SIDE OF THE COMMUNITY BEHIND THE MILBURN CIRCLE AREA.
HOWEVER IT CONTINUED TO TOUCHDOWN OCCASIONALLY AS IT PROCEEDED
ALMOST DUE NORTH. AFTER CROSSING A LARGE FIELD BEHIND THE
FOREST...THE TORNADO SNAPPED DOWN 4 TREES ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF
MOUNTAIN ROAD AND SNAPPED A LARGE BRANCH OFF A TREE ON THE NORTH
SIDE. THE TORNADO LIFTED FOR THE FINAL TIME AFTER SNAPPING SEVERAL
LARGE BRANCHES OFF A TREE AT 8321 DOCK ROAD AT 9:49 AM.

MOST RESIDENTS SPOKEN WITH NOTED THEY HAD HEARD ABOUT THE TORNADO
WARNING THROUGH LOCAL MEDIA OR THROUGH NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS WHO
RELAYED THE WARNING. RESIDENT REPORTS INDICATED THE WINDS CAME UP
QUICKLY DURING A LESSENING OF THE RAINFALL. FIRST FROM SOUTHEAST
TO NORTHWEST... THEN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. ANOTHER SAW WHAT
LOOKED LIKE A WATERSPOUT COMING OFF THE CREEK INTO THE COMMUNITY.
THE COMMUNITY WAS FORTUNATE IN THAT OTHER THAN THE TRUCK AND THE
SHED...ALL OF THE LARGE TREES FELL TO THE GROUND AND NOT ON THE
HOMES THEY SURROUNDED.

Final Numbers
October 1, 2010

The numbers are in. Listed below are rain totals gathered by the National Weather Service offices at Sterling, VA, Mt. Holly, NJ, Wakefield, VA and Camp Springs, MD.
