Good day everyone.

Looks like a reload and another winter weather maker for portions of the north and east in about 72-96 hours.  Models indicate another low developing in the GOMEX, and pretty much being on a trajectory as this last system, with the exception of being a tad further south and east with precipitation.  This is just a brief heads up, as I want to try and complete my Post Hurricane Season narrative.

NCEP GFS MODEL FORECAST LOOP

GFS 96 HOUR PRECIPITATION TOTAL LOOP

GFS 96 HOUR ACCUMULATED SNOWFALL FORECAST

I’ll have more on this in a couple days.  ECMWF suggests possible blizzard conditions for portions of the NE.

Have a blessed day!

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.
