Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  Empty Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call

Post by Frank_Wx Fri Jan 22, 2016 10:50 pm

I can honestly say I did not expect to do this tonight. I am putting the forum - I think for the first time - under Roidzilla Storm Mode. I expect widespread 24" snow amounts to fall from southeastern PA - NJ - NYC - and LI.

Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  H51

The 500mb low closed off and is heading east-northeast. The ridge downstream is preventing it from moving north - which is why we're likely to see cut-offs in the first place. The trough is neutral with heights rising well into NJ / PA. It remains to be seen whether the trough goes negative at any point during this storm. At this time I think no. The decaying ridge will flatten heights and keep the flow progressive. But the block to the north, H5 closing off early, and favorably positioned jet streaks is what will keep the low close to the coast.

Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  Jet_stream

Here are 250mb winds valid 1pm tomorrow afternoon on a World map. Look at that Sub-Tropical Jet Stream! There is Pacific air feeding into this storm. There is also the northern jet phasing in with the STJ off the coast. THIS could be why some models are chasing convection on the east end of the trough.

Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  Caribbean_air

It's not just the Pacific feeding the storm. There is also Caribbean moisture streaming up the coast. This is why current radar shows thunderstorms getting into the southeast and southern Mid-Atlantic. As these thunderstorms ride into the cold air mass, that will spark snow rates to intensify. Aka thundersnow!

Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  Surface_low

Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  Radar

The primary low is dying over western NC and a secondary is taking over off the coast of NC. Convection is streaming N-NW and H5 heights are pointing north. This argues for the surface low to take a track right up the coast. Once the ridge to the west collapses and the H250 jet streaks shift east, that is when the surface low will begin to pull away from the coast and track east. The timing of when this happens is critical for those near the gradient. If this happens quickly, the cut-off is real and areas just south will see a historic storm. If it takes time to develop, the surface low will track north enough to bring substantial banding into HV and CT.

Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  Gfs_h7

Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  Nam_h7

The GFS (top) is elongated with 700mb vertical velocities, or where the greatest lift will be. Meanwhile, the NAM nicely pivots H7 VV's around the H7 low. The NAM - as well as other mesoscale models - keep the surface low organized and close to the coast while Globals broaden it out. Regardless, both models show incredible lift getting into the area in the early afternoon. The CCB is likely to be very impressive with thundersnow and snow rates of 2-3" an hour.

The NAM, RGEM, HRRR, RAP show Roidzilla-criteria snow falling over PARTS of the area.

UPDATED SNOW MAP

Roidzilla Storm Mode - January 23, 2016 Updated Final Call  Roidzilla_snow_map_january_23

AGAIN, this means my confidence is HIGH that the POTENTIAL for 24" is possible if you're in the purple or red shading!!

Orange county solidly in 8-12 on that map and still only a winter storm watch.

I suppose the thinking is if that ridge in the west collapses to soon as is still very much on the table as frank has mentioned the HV is scrooed.

I will not sleep well tonight.
