TROPICAL THREAT COMING FIRST OF JUNE POSSIBLY

Posted by Timothy Richardson on May 31, 2015 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (4)

visitor statsTampaSpins TROPICAL WEATHER ANALYSIS

What is in the MODEL FORECAST:

The GFS and CMC MODELS are showing a system devloping coming out of the Carribean and moving over Cuba into the Bahamas.  The CMC MODEL is very aggressive in showing a very strong Hurricane developing and moving toward the Carolina's!  If you look at the MJO uplift forecast it shows a strong moisture surge this same time as well.  Something we have to watch for sure.  The EURO and Navy model hint at something, but currently show nothing developing!

THANKS,

Tim

2015 TROPICAL SEASON FORECAST

Posted by Timothy Richardson on May 28, 2015 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

visitor stats 2015 TROPICAL SEASON FORECAST!

Here is my thoughts on the 2015 Atlantic Basin Tropical Outlook!  

I am using my Rating System above under the Tab "Tropical Prediction Analysis" to rate each category as outlined and with reasoning to back each rating.

  The Graphic directly below shows the Global trend with Hurricane Days for the Globe.  Although this is in no way completely shows the exact graph for the Atlantic Days one can see that when following a low time it seldom goes straight to the top at a peak as it does not occur until a 2-3 year climb.  So, i am lead to believe that this will likely be a slower than average season!


SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES-3 rating

When looking at the Sea Surface Temperture Anomaly and the Ocean Heat Content grapic below the Caribbean the Gulf of Mexico is running above average while the MidAtlantic is running below normal for Tropical Development!

 

 

 

 

SHEAR-4 rating

Shear seems to be running about normal to slightly above normal.  With the forecast of possible ElNino conditions, this would tend have Above normal Shear.


 

 

SAL-SAHARAN AIR LAYER-7 rating

This is very difficult to figure out the amount of Dry air and Dust that will be in the Atmosphere during the season.  But, my best analogy on recent trends would lead me to believe that less dust is possible because the abundance of Rain in the African region!  This would tend to produce less dust storms.  Also current Dust seems below normal.

 

 

PRESSURE-4 rating

Again this is very hard to set a value but, most documents and findings indicate that the Atlantic as a whole is running slightly above average with current conditions.  It is very difficult to project what the trend will be later but, to only base it on the current trend.

BERMUDA HIGH POSITION-7 rating

The Bermuda and Azores High is another very complicated item of focus to predict.  But, based on what it should do in ElNino conditions and where it already is located i have to give this a higher than normal rating.

 

 

MJO-5 rating

Again another very difficult forecast focus.  MJO is basically moisture in the Atmosphere that circles the globe about every 30-60 days.  We will currently go into a higher MJO position so if 30-60 days out would tend to put us in another uplift position starting about July into August.

 

Spatial map of MJO OLR anomalies

 

CAPE VERDE LOWS SPINNING-5 rating

One never knows on this other than current trends!  The current trend has not seen strong spins coming off of Africa!  Although last year the trend was not so strong rotation off of Africa.  I will continue with that current trend in my rating.

 

 

LOCAL BREED-8 rating

With the current trend of warmer GOM SST's i am giving this a Higher than normal rating.  Again very hard to tell but, with the above Average SST's currently it would be very hard to give this a below average rating.

 

HISTORY TENDENCY from ESNO-3 rating

I have given this a very low rating based totally on the trend over the last several Years from ElNino conditions.

 

VOLCANIC RELEASE-5 rating

I have given this an average rating.  I have based this on the amount of release from Valcano erupting in the Northern Atlantic.  This has to play some effect with the season in my opininon.  Although this may not be very significant, what little has been released into the Stratosphere could deflect some sun light and cause some cooling as some of the dust one would think has drifted into the Lower Atlantic.

Summary:

Based on my rating system and plugging the numbers together, my best estimate for the 2015 Atlantic Basin Tropical Outlook is for:

72% chance of Below Average Conditions leading to

7 Named storms--the average is 9.6

4 Hurricanes--the average is 5.9

2 Major Hurricanes--the average is 2.3

I will enjoy hearing the debates of my thoughts and keep in mind these trends can change!

Thanks,

Tim

TROPICAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

Posted by Timothy Richardson on October 16, 2014 at 10:55 AM Comments comments (0)

visitor statsTampaSpins TROPICAL WEATHER ANALYSIS


What is in the MODEL FORECAST:

Models are in fairly good agreement that a TROPICAL STORM will develop in the SW Gulf of Mexico caused by a stalled cold front and INVEST 92E in the Pacific that will likely cross Mexico and move into the BOC in the Gulf of Mexico.  Every model currently shows this occuring.  What happens from there is uncertain as for as how strong and where it goes.  Currently most models move it in the general direction toward Florida.  I won't go there as i only try to tell you what the models are showing.  Intensity beyond 72 hours is impossible to forecast because of Shear.  Shear is currently forecasted by models not all favorable but not all that unfavorable either.  WE will likely see some Circulation starting in the BOC in about 3-4 days or SUNDAY/MONDAY!  I only tell you what the models say and i as all can change over the next few days!

THANKS,

Tim

NOTHING IN THE TROPICS 10-2-14

Posted by Timothy Richardson on October 2, 2014 at 1:20 AM Comments comments (1)

visitor statsTampaSpins TROPICAL WEATHER ANALYSIS


What is in the MODEL FORECAST:

Models currently are not showing anything of major concern over the next 5 days!  However the GFS Model and NAVY Model show a Tropical wave moving from the Atlantic into the Caribbean in about 7 days.  The GFS Model has been on and off developing this wave.  There is a Cold front that will move very far south into the Gulf of Mexico and really shut down much of the Tropical Development chances for a while.  Keep in mind that many Tropical systems develop on the tail ends of stalled cold fronts.  Something to watch down the road, but again NOTHING to worry in the Tropics.  The NHC does have Invest 97L and 98L.....I am not going to even post any graphics on these as they are completely of non interest and probably did not even warrent an Invest declared.

Tim

SEVERE WEATHER THREAT

Posted by Timothy Richardson on October 1, 2014 at 2:30 AM Comments comments (0)

visitor statsTampaSpins SEVERE WEATHER ANALYSIS

The Threat of some severe weather will start Wednesday 10-1 thru Friday 10-3 from the plains into the Ohio Valley!  This is all due to an area of LOW pressure which will bring some very Cold air out of Canada and hit a mass of warm high due point air.  The shear caused the the counter clock wise rotation will be enough to cause some tornados thru the time line.  Keep your ears near a weather radio and your eyes to the skies!

TROUBLE AHEAD

Posted by Timothy Richardson on September 18, 2014 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (4)

visitor statsTampaSpins TROPICAL WEATHER ANALYSIS


What is in the MODEL FORECAST:

The Models are hinting at something that might be a real possibility.  The EURO model and the GFS model both are showing a Tropical System developing in the GULF OF MEXICO and moving across Florida as a Cold front approaches.  Models show something developing in about 8-10 days or about September 26th.  We have not seen this often where we have both the major models agreeing this far out that something will develop.  We need to watch this very closely to see if this trend continues!!!  JUST something to watch.

Elsewhere, we will see some MAJOR FLASH FLOODING again from the WEST caused by Hurricane Odile.  The impact into Arizona could be as bad if not worst than last week!

MAJOR PROBLEMS AHEAD

Posted by Timothy Richardson on September 15, 2014 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (2)

visitor statsTampaSpins TROPICAL WEATHER ANALYSIS


What is in the MODEL FORECAST:

The Models are hinting at something that might be a real possibility.  We need not be reminded what happened on the Jersey Shores, but the Models are hinting at a storm taking a similar path that gets going off the Florida/Georgia Coastline and then moves into the NORTHEAST becoming very strong by some Models such as the CMC.  Yea, i know the CMC can over do storms, but the other models are hinting at some development as well.  This is all about 8-10 out if anything was to occur.  JUST something to watch.

Elsewhere, we will see some MAJOR FLASH FLOODING again from the WEST caused by Hurricane Odile.  The impact into Arizona could be as bad if not worst than last week!

Tropical Update

Posted by Timothy Richardson on September 10, 2014 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (0)

visitor statsTampaSpins TROPICAL WEATHER ANALYSIS


What is in the MODEL FORECAST:

The Models are hinting at something that might be a real possibility.  We need not be reminded what happened on the Jersey Shores, but the Models are hinting at a storm taking a similar path that gets going off the Florida/Georgia Coastline and then moves into the NORTHEAST becoming very strong by some Models such as the CMC.  Yea, i know the CMC can over do storms, but the other models are hinting at some development as well.  This is all about 8-10 out if anything was to occur.  JUST something to watch.

Elsewhere, we will see some MAJOR FLASH FLOODING again from the WEST caused by Hurricane Odile.  The impact into Arizona could be as bad if not worst than last week! 

THANKS,

Tim

TROPICAL UPDATE 9-10-14

Posted by Timothy Richardson on July 20, 2014 at 10:25 AM Comments comments (0)

visitor statsTampaSpins TROPICAL WEATHER ANALYSIS


What is in the MODEL FORECAST:

Nothing in the tropics is expected over the next 7 days as all the models show nothing developing except the CMC model shows some small develpment from a spin in the ITZ.  It is only brief until it hits higher shear and goes poof.....gone!  Models do show Shear easing some in the Central Atlantic, but continues higher shear in the Caribbean.  SHEAR is just to strong....NOTHING can develop. Until the Shear drops to below 20kts NOTHING will develop.

THANKS,

Tim

KENTUCKY SNOW STORM

**MAJOR WINTER STORM FOR KENTUCKY NAM MODEL SHOWING**

The NAM MODEL has came out with KENTUCKY getting rocked with about 17" of snow! thru Tuesday!

https://scontent-b-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/t1/1508067_712952002072527_2118304459_n.png


Just to confirm....the GFS MODEL is showing much the same!

https://scontent-a-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t1/1779891_712957278738666_408420848_n.png


Keep in mind we still have a Tuesday and Wednesday Storm to deal with along with a Weekend Winter Storm that is showing signs of being rather large event possibly!

**BLIZZARD ALERT**

Posted by Timothy Richardson on December 30, 2013 at 10:35 AM Comments comments (0)

**MAJOR WINTER STORM COMING**

We have currently 2 different solutions by models. Currently the GFS Model takes a Surface Low more off the Coast and out to Sea while the very reliable European Model moves a Surface Low up the East Coast BOMBING OUT in VERY VERY COLD AIR! If the EURO is correct, we will have an amazing BLIZZARD in the Northeast including possibly the New York City area on Thursday and Friday into the Weekend. We need to watch the next few runs of the GFS Model to see if this model follows the EURO, if so...OH MY! Below is the EURO MODEL CURRENT RUN!
