Jeb Posted December 9, 2013 Report Share Posted December 9, 2013 WINTER 2013-2014 Existing sig on American Wx Forums Thats a great sign. Wes is the medical examiner of this board. He shows up, delivers a grim prognosis and picks up the body. As long as the prospects are alive and kicking no need for the toe tag guy. CRAZYBLIZZARD It is like atmospheric magic. A meteorologist could not have co-located everything at once at the same time over one area. Tanking mid level heights with the incoming PV max, the most divergent portion of that upper jet coupling, strong 600-800 frontal forcing, strong low level moist theta-e advection into the frontal circulation, and extreme convergence into the low level cyclone. I am thinking this is going to be ripping heavy TSSN over N IL like nothing before. baroclinic_instabilityThis is a pretty nasty combination of a pretty good thermodynamic environment with some excellent shear. Fairly steep ML lapse rates combining with increase low-level WAA and moisture transport and increasing theta-e is really helping to not only keep things unstable but helping to destabilize the atmosphere even further!Supercell composite parameter is 20 with sig tor of 4...that's insane for this time of night. You even have Dcape values over 1000 J/KG. weatherwiz12.24.12 - Hour or so of snow showers, no accums. | 12/26/12 - 0.25" snow |1.23.13 - 1.5 inch snow, 1.25.13 T 2 days snow cover3 days snow cover so far in 2012-2013 winter Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
