Quick Hitting Tropical Storm Isaias Lashes the Area…

Synopsis:

***Tornado Watch for the entire area until 4pm. Keep an eye to the sky for threatening weather. A tornado watch means conditions are favorable for possible tornadoes. It does not mean that a tornado is happening***

Isaias will ride inland just East of the I-95 corridor and through our area today. The morning will feature areas of rain and storms mainly well West and North of the coast. Not much in the way of rain and wind is expected for the majority of the region. The brunt of Isaias will be from midday to early evening, around a six hour period. A round of heavy rain and Tropical Storm force winds will occur during this time.

Flooding is quite likely where the heavy bands set up. As of this writing the heaviest axis of rain looks to fall along and to the West of the storm track. A Flash Flood watch has been posted for Tuesday the possibility of 1″-4″+ of rain. Much lighter amounts of rain are likely to the East.

A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the entire tri-state area. Winds will gust between 45-75mph. I would prepare for possible power outages, especially near and along the coast where winds will be strongest. Tree limbs and weak rooted trees may come down. There is also the slight risk of severe thunderstorms. Isolated tornadoes are possible. Please be vigilant  during the afternoon as conditions will be changing rapidly.

There will be a storm surge with Isaias. A bit of good news, the brunt of the storm will not coincide with high tide. Even so, the tidal surge may cause an inundation of one to possibly three feet.

The storm will be a quick hitter and the sun may even shine later in the afternoon especially to the South and West of the City.

The sun will return on Wednesday. High pressure will dominate and result in fair weather through the end of the week.

Stay Tuned.

Tropical Storm Isaias Lashes the Area Tuesday…

Synopsis:

Tropical Storm Isaias will make landfall along the SC/NC coast this evening. The storm may strengthen to a hurricane just before landfall. Clouds will thicken tonight and scattered showers and storms will develop in our area. It will become humid.

Isaias will ride inland just East of the I-95 corridor and affect our weather on Tuesday and Tuesday night. The morning will feature areas of rain and storms. The brunt of Isaias will be from midday to early evening, around a six hour period. A round of heavy rain and Tropical Storm force winds will occur during this time.

Flooding is quite likely where the heavy bands set up. As of this writing the heaviest axis of rain looks to fall along and to the West of the storm track. A Flash Flood watch has been posted for Tuesday the possibility of 2″-5″+ of rain. Lighter amounts of rain are likely to the East.

A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the entire tri-state area. Winds will gust between 45-75mph. I would prepare for possible power outages, especially near and along the coast where winds will be strongest. Tree limbs and weak rooted trees may come down. There is also the slight risk of severe thunderstorms. Isolated tornadoes are possible. Please be vigilant  during the afternoon as conditions will be changing rapidly.

There will be a storm surge with Isaias. A bit of good news, the brunt of the storm will not coincide with high tide. Even so, the tidal surge may cause an inundation of one to possibly three feet.

The storm will be a quick hitter and the sun may even shine toward evening especially to the South and West of the City.

The sun will return on Wednesday. High pressure will dominate and result in fair weather through the end of the week.

Hot Monday. Spot PM Storm…

Synopsis:

Today will feature more sunshine as a Bermuda high noses in from the Western Atlantic. This will result in readings flirting with 90º. The humidity will not be as high as yesterday. A spotty afternoon storm is possible.

All eyes then turn to Tropical Storm Isaias. Isaias will continue North to just off the Georgia coast this afternoon and is forecast to make landfall tonight along the Eastern South Carolina coast. The storm may strengthen to a hurricane just before landfall. Isaias will ride inland just East of the I-95 corridor and affect our weather on Tuesday and Tuesday night. Confidence continues to increase that a round of heavy rain and Tropical Storm force winds will occur for much of the area. Flooding is quite likely where the heavy bands set up. A Flash Flood watch has been posted for Tuesday the possibility of 2″-5″+ of rain. A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued much of the area, with a Tropical Storm Watch for Northwestern counties. Winds may gust between 45-70mph. Well inland winds will not be as strong. The coastal flooding potential has increased. How high the tidal water will be will depend on the exact track of Isaias and the specific location.

At this time, I would prepare for possible power outages, especially near and along the coast where winds will be strongest. Tree limbs and weak rooted trees may come down.

The storm will move out of the area on Wednesday and the sun will return. The end of the week will be pleasantly warm.

A Tornado Watch is in effect until 10pm for Sussex, Passaic and Bergen counties in NJ, All of the lower Hudson Valley and most of Connecticut. The watch doesn’t include NYC, Long Island and areas to the South. Scattered thunderstorms may become severe this evening. An isolated severe storm has the capability of producing a weak tornado. Please seek shelter if threatening weather approaches. Not all areas will get in on the action.

Any leftover evening storms will give way to partly cloudy skies tonight. It will be warm and muggy.

Monday will feature more sunshine as a Bermuda high noses in from the Western Atlantic. This will result in readings flirting with 90º. A spotty afternoon storm is possible.

All eyes then turn to Tropical Storm Isaias. The storm will ride along the Florida through tonight.

Steamy Sunday. 2 Sct’d Rounds of Storms. Hazy Sun at Times…

Synopsis:

A push of tropical air from the South today along with a few disturbances riding along the jet stream will cause two scattered rounds of thunderstorms. One round this morning will mainly be concentrated over the Northern half of the tri-state area. The second threat will be for the entire region later this afternoon.

The airmass will be very unstable so any storm may become severe. Severe thunderstorms contain winds in excess of 58mph and or one inch hail. Frequent cloud to ground lightning and torrential rain will also be a concern. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. I know this sounds like today will be a washout out but it won’t. There will be several hours of tranquil weather and hazy sun at times. Please keep an eye to the sky for threatening weather this morning and then again later this afternoon.

Any leftover evening storms will give way to partly cloudy skies tonight. It will be warm and muggy.

Monday will feature more sunshine as a Bermuda high noses in from the Western Atlantic. This will result in readings flirting with 90º. A spotty afternoon storm is possible.

All eyes then turn to Tropical Storm Isaias. The storm will ride along the Florida coast today. Isaias will continue North to just off the Georgia coast Monday afternoon and is forecast to make landfall Monday night along the South Carolina coast. Isaias will ride inland just and take East of the I-95 corridor and affect our weather on Tuesday and Tuesday night. Confidence continues to increase that a round of heavy rain and gusty winds will occur. Flooding is quite likely in vulnerable areas. 2″-5″+ of rain is possible. Tropical storm force winds are possible along the coast. This will be fine-tuned as we get closer to the event.

The storm will move out of the area on Wednesday and the sun will return.

Stay Tuned.

August’s Debut-a Winner. Sunday not as Stellar…

Synopsis:

As we turn the page to August today the adjective to describe the weather is spectacular.  It will warm and sunny with low levels of humidity. Tonight and Sunday will feature a push of tropical air from the South. This will result in high humidity and spotty showers and storms through Sunday. It will not be a washout.

All eyes then turn to Hurricane Isaias. The storm will head through the Bahamas today. Confidence continues to increase that Isaias will move along the Florida coast on Sunday as a category one hurricane. Whether Isaias is a minimal hurricane or tropical storm; it will ride along the coast (either just inland or along) and most likely affect our area on Tuesday. By that time the storm will be rapidly moving. The potential is there for areas of heavy rain and gusty winds. The specifics will be fine-tuned as the even nears. High surf and beach erosion will occur.

The storm will move out of the area on Wednesday and the sun will return.

July’s Finale-Damp & Cooler…

Synopsis:

An upper level disturbance will move through the region this morning with scattered showers and isolated storms. It’ll be much cooler due to the rain-cooled air and clouds. The sun may make a return at times especially North of the City.

As we turn the page to August this weekend the humidity will return. Hazy skies are expected both days. It will warm and mainly dry. Spotty storms are possible on Sunday it will be steamy.

All eyes then turn to Hurricane Isaias. The storm will head through the Bahamas today and Saturday. Where it goes from there is still uncertain. The storm will head North. Will it be into Florida or stay offshore?  From there the track will be up the coast-inland, along the coast or offshore?  The track will determine what conditions will occur in the tri-state area. The track map is above. As you can see the cone of uncertainly expands through time. This will be fine-tuned over the weekend.
