Weather Update, November 18, 2008: Prozac Nation, Temperatures go Bonko!

18 Nov 2008, 1:06 pm
Forecast Temperature Animation
Forecast Temperature Animation
As northerly winds control the eastern United States, a strong ridge of high pressure maintains itself in the west that will result in more record low temperatures in the east, and record highs in the west.

At left is our HAMmodel NAM 2 Meter Forecast Temperature Animation (3 hour increments) through 84 hours (ending 00z Saturday) initialized 12z this morning. As you view the animation, note the higher temperatures pop up in the Western U.S., while the 32°F isotherm (temperature of interest) surges south covering the majority of the eastern United States. This type of activity is normal this time of year and will bring with it some record temperatures.

To view the records that occur today as the southeastern U.S. will finally feel the cold weather that we have been enduring in the north (ha ha!), and the western United States flaunts their warmth (boo! lol) be sure to view the Climate Section of our site, as it is updated daily to keep you abreast of the latest developments!

Forecast Rain Animation
Forecast Rain Animation
Since the ridge of High Pressure is dominating the east, liquid precipitation will be absent for the western section of our country until Thursday as a new system begins streaming in for the Pacific Northwest, as rains will continue offshore in the Atlantic for the next few days with some dabblings of rain in the Bahamas and Florida.

At left is our NAM 84 Hour (ending 00z Saturday) Liquid Precipitation Animation (3 hour increments) to give you a graphical overview of what the model is thinking at the moment.

On the subject of rain, tropical development is not very favorable over the next few days as well for the Atlantic as we continue our progression into winter weather patterns.

Forecast Snowdepth Animation
Forecast Snowdepth Animation
Lake effect snows will begin trailing off today as the area of high pressure mentioned above moves into the great lakes region. Our Advisory Center shows that most of the lake effect snow warnings have been removed as of the time of this writing, with the balance likely to be canceled later today.

New snows will begin forming later in week for the Pacific Northwest, Northern Rockies, and Northern Great Plains. At left our HAMmodel 84 Hour Forecast Snowdepth Animation (3 hour increments) displays where the snow is projected to fall for the next few days (and where previous snowfall is projected to melt). Nothing magnanimous is forecast to occur in the immediate future, however the potential does exist for something exciting further out, but we will wait until we get closer to make any firm projections.

Below I have provided the spotter reports out of the NWS Office in Cleveland, OH for you again. Recall they are grouped by new snowfall, and ‘snow on the ground.’
