2018 Storm Watch

Postby Phantom Phenom » Thu May 24, 2018 7:51 am

NHC has issued a Special Tropical Weather Outlook for the Atlantic basin as of 7:40 a.m. EDT on this Thursday morning...

A broad stationary surface low pressure system is centered over the southeastern Yucatan Peninsula and is gradually becoming better defined. Although showers and thunderstorms, along with strong gusty winds, are confined primarily to the adjacent waters of the northwestern Caribbean Sea, gradual development of this system is expected during the next couple of days as it drifts northward near the Yucatan Peninsula.

Environmental conditions are forecast to become more conducive for development through early next week, and a subtropical or tropical depression is likely to form by late Saturday over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.

Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall is forecast across western Cuba and over much of Florida and the northern Gulf Coast into early next week. In addition, the threat of rip currents will steadily increase along the Gulf coast from Florida westward to Louisiana over Memorial Day weekend. For more information on these threats, please see products issued by your local NWS weather forecast office - www.weather.gov

The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this system will be issued by NHC by 2 p.m. EDT this afternoon - www.hurricanes.gov


It's going to be a wet Memorial Day weekend in Florida

Well hello Alberto

Subtropical Storm Alberto is the first storm of the Atlantic season, which doesn't officially start for another week. Alberto is sitting east of the Yucatan Peninsula and is expected to move north into the Gulf of Mexico, where conditions are favorable for further development.

Forecast models have come to better agreement on the storm's track, eventually bringing it ashore on the northern Gulf Coast, then across the southeastern U.S. But with most of the convection on the east side of the storm, heavy rain is expected to fall across Florida.

Welcome all, the season starts early lol. Before we get too buried, I want to post a couple links and stuff that could be of use during this storm season.

NOAA Hurricane Center: Latest current information about storms

r/TropicalWeather: Good place to discuss anything that happens this season, and any questions that you have during it. There are current and former meteorologists that visit the sub to answer in-depth questions, and most of the regulars are knowledgeable enough to answer questions/discussions too. Just...don't ask about your travel plans lol

TropicalTidbits: Good for maps and info about the current storms around the world. You can view different model runs

Spaghetti Models: Basically a big comp of maps and radars from many different sites


Couple of good people to follow on twitter

Levi Cowan

Jeff Piotrowski
NWS




And without further ado, here's SubTropical Storm Alberto
