Funny dog holds dollars in mouth, isolated white background

Good day everyone!

There are no severe thunderstorms forecast over the next 7-8 days, and the next coastal system is about 5 days out.  Based on this, I will be out, and working up a post hurricane season analytic review with my thoughts as to what may have contributed to the cause of a slightly above average season as far as totals, and a lack of hurricane activity.

Not sure how long this will take, however I will return to forecasting when completed.



About palmharborforecastcenter

I am a Tropical Forecast meteorologist, providing hurricane forecasts during the Atlantic Hurricane Season. I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in July of 2001. Meteorology became my passion in high school, and I have continued my educational background in meteorology since 1996, when I undertook the study of Tropical Meteorology. While working toward my degree, I had to unexpectedly withdraw from college due to my oldest sons medical reasons. I do however, meet the educational criteria of the AMS to be recognized as a meteorologist. Studies include, but are not limited to the Navy Aerographers Mate course, Naval METOC meteorology course, Meteorology 2010 Sophomore level course while attending St. Petersburg College, Clearwater, FL., Basic Forecasting course for operational meteorologists from Rapid WX, meteorology institute, a four month meteorological internship, and extensive research on numerous meteorological topics such as the MJO, NAO, satellite imagery interpretation, etc. I have been forecasting Tropical Weather (Tropical Storms and Hurricanes) since 1996, with my main client being three different Coast Guard Commands.

  1. Thanks Senior Chief:!
    A small (too small ?) donation has been made, not for your efforts of the past season (It is past, isn’t it?) but for what we know will be the most useful of Atlantic Basin tropical weather sites of the coming season.
    Again , Thanks Storm

    Thanks Storm, I’ll give you final snow totals from up here.

        Storm, the NYC Metro area ended up with, in general, 2-4″. We in Stamford got about 3″. It was tough to measure accurately, because, of melting and compaction of the snow. The temps. never really got below freezing during the time it was precipitating, and there was no “banding” which they thought might leave some areas with 6-8″, –as was the case with Sunday’s storm in SE PA. , southern NJ, northern Maryland, and northern Delaware.Now the temp. is down to 25.7F and should bottom out at about 18-23F by morning. Now it’s on to the next storm threat, for the Sat/Sun. time period that you alluded to. It could be a Miller B type system. We’ll see as we get closer, should know a lot more by Thursday.
