UPDATE…1:25 P.M. EST…NOV. 23, 2014:

The SPC has since dropped the ENHANCED risk area.

Good day everyone!

The SPC, Norman OK. has designated an ENHANCED risk of Severe Thunderstorms from portions of the Lower MS Valley, into the Tidewater Region…

There is a SLIGHT risk from the Central Gulf Coast to the Eastern Carolinas…

There is a MARGINAL risk over a part of the Northern Gulf Coast…

SPC DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK

Based on information contained in the outlook, a 90 –  100 knot Mid Level Jet Streak will continue eastward today, before turning toward the NE and intensifying as it enters the risk areas late this afternoon, into the evening.

NAM MID LEVEL JET
NAM.MIDLJ

In response to the thermodynamic and kinematics of the the current MCS to the west of the area, and strengthening Mid Level Jet, will allow for the expansion and strengthening of a SWLY LLJ (Southwesterly Low Level Jet).  This will allow for the severe threat to carry over into the Appalachians and Eastern Seaboard in the over night hours.

Based on analysis of Severe Weather software data from the GFS and NAM models, it appears the NAM may have a better handle on the situation.  However, I am a little perplexed as to why an enhanced threat was issued, as certain severe weather indices do not support a great probability of severe thunderstorms, although this could change as the newer model runs post.  Regardless, based on the information in the current outlook, isolated tornadoes may occur within the slight risk area, with the greater probability in the enhanced risk area.  Certain tornado parameters analyzed, do however suggest a threat for isolated tornado activity, and the greatest probability based on the NAM model output through the software, is outlined in the white circle areas:

NAM 4:00 P.M. EST

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.

    Thanks, Storm. looks like we will have a very active 4-5 day period coming up. With heavy rain showers up here overnight, as the warm front pushes thru, then maybe some more showers later Monday as the cold front comes thru. (And Windy too!). Then all eyes up here look to the Wed/Thurs. time frame for a big N’or Easter. Wether we have all rain or rain/snow or rain changing to snow, is still “up in the air”. But well inland, North and West of the Greater NYC Metro area, could have some significant snows. Of course I’ll let you know what I get href in Stamford CT.
