Severe thunderstorms, sleet expected in Houston through Thursday evening https://gosic.org/severe-thunderstorms-sleet-expected-in-houston-through-thursday-evening/ Wed, 19 Jan 2022 21:40:50 +0000 https://gosic.org/severe-thunderstorms-sleet-expected-in-houston-through-thursday-evening/ It’s going to be cold and rainy, maybe a bit icy.

But as of Wednesday afternoon, forecasters were expecting no repeat of last year’s deadly winter frost.

RELATED: Cold weather ignites debate over stability of Texas’ gas-powered grid

“The impact should be minimal for our forecast area,” the Houston/Galveston office of the National Weather Service wrote in a presentation.

A cold front will cross the Houston area Wednesday night, bringing with it a series of showers and thunderstorms. Some of these storms could be severe. Damaging winds, large hail and an isolated tornado are possible Wednesday afternoon and evening.

Rain and sleet are expected on Thursday afternoon and evening. This rain should clear before temperatures drop below freezing. However, the National Weather Service will continue to monitor the situation. Should freezing temperatures arrive sooner than expected, or should rain last longer than expected, there could be patches of ice on elevated surfaces such as roads (the National Weather Service said this is not the most likely scenario).

The National Weather Service will continue to provide updates, with another briefing scheduled for Thursday at 9:30am

In the meantime, there’s no harm in being prepared for sub-zero temperatures. Diane Cowen has tips for your home, family and pet.

Winter storm brings snow, high winds and thunderstorms to Northeast US | US weather https://gosic.org/winter-storm-brings-snow-high-winds-and-thunderstorms-to-northeast-us-us-weather/ Mon, 17 Jan 2022 15:09:00 +0000 https://gosic.org/winter-storm-brings-snow-high-winds-and-thunderstorms-to-northeast-us-us-weather/

A dangerous winter storm brought heavy snowfall, violent thunderstorms and blustery winds to the northeastern US on Monday, and infrequent flurries and deadly tornadoes to Florida.

More than 50 million people were under winter weather warnings as of Monday morning. The huge system affected a gigantic chunk of land stretching from Florida to Maine.

According to FlightAware.com, air travel was impacted as more than 1,200 US flights were canceled Monday morning after 3,000 US flights were canceled on Sunday. More than 180,000 customers from Georgia to New York were powered, according to PowerOutage.us.

Florida saw infrequent snowfalls in the Panhandle region of the state’s northwest, and the system also spawned tornadoes across the state of Florida, destroying or damaging numerous mobile homes.

New York City and Boston were spared the heaviest snowfalls, which piled up at higher elevations in western Massachusetts, eastern Pennsylvania and parts of New England.

A severe thunderstorm warning remained in effect for New York City early Monday, and high winds made travel in the area treacherous. The howling winds spread a fire that destroyed a motel and two other buildings on the Salisbury, Massachusetts waterfront early Monday.

In case you missed it

The Philadelphia Eagles are a better team than the one that lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6. Still, there are plenty of reasons the defending Super Bowl champion is an 8-1/2 point favorite in Sunday’s NFC wildcard game. Of particular note was the fact that the Bucs easily handled the Eagles in the team’s first matchup.

Weather in Melbourne: Severe thunderstorm risk for parts of Victoria https://gosic.org/weather-in-melbourne-severe-thunderstorm-risk-for-parts-of-victoria/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 02:13:09 +0000 https://gosic.org/weather-in-melbourne-severe-thunderstorm-risk-for-parts-of-victoria/ Wild weather will haunt Victoria again, with severe thunderstorms and heavy rains for parts of the state.

Wild weather will again plague Victoria, with severe thunderstorms developing over the west of the state.

Tom Delamonte, chief forecaster for the Bureau of Meteorology, said there had been an “outbreak” of severe storm activity in the west, bringing with it the threat of heavy rains and potentially harmful winds and large hailstones.

In parts of the Mallee there could be between 2-10 mm of precipitation on Thursday, in the Wimmera and in the southwest of the state it could increase to 10-30 mm.

“We were also able to see some localized falls up to 50-70 mm that would result in flash floods,” he said.

Mr Delamonte said the severe thunderstorm risk could stretch across central and eastern Victoria, including Melbourne, on Friday, with widespread rainfall of 10-30mm and an “outside chance” of noxious winds and large hailstones.

At the weekend the weather should relax.

It comes after thousands of residents in the central west of the state were left in the dark on Jan. 5 after wild storms crashed power lines and caused flash floods.

Videos shared on the Internet showed Ballarat residents wading knee-deep floods while other reporters soaked the area with torrential rain.

On January 7, Camberwell, Caulfield, Glen Waverley and Healesville were hit by severe storms on January 7, and heavy rains caused flash floods in Lethbridge, South Yarra, South Melbourne and Port Melbourne.

]]> Rain and thunderstorms move east as the northwest prepares for another cold spell https://gosic.org/rain-and-thunderstorms-move-east-as-the-northwest-prepares-for-another-cold-spell/ Tue, 11 Jan 2022 06:28:22 +0000 https://gosic.org/rain-and-thunderstorms-move-east-as-the-northwest-prepares-for-another-cold-spell/

An intense western disturbance has “creamed” the hills in northwest India with heavy snow and washed excess moisture over the plains in the form of rain or thunderstorms, while its southern flanks will trigger further wetness over the East Indies and the south peninsula.

The western system will continue to move eastward, allowing for colder northwest winds (as opposed to the warm southwest winds that became the southeast winds associated with the western disturbance) and tumbling minima (nighttime temperature) over northwest India. A new western disorder is expected to check in from across the international border by Sunday.

Rain showers for South India

In the south, the system will evoke isolated to fairly widespread light or moderate rainfall or thunderstorms over the coasts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for 4-5 days.

Isolated thunderstorms, lightning and hail can break out over Telangana tomorrow and heavy rains in isolated places over the coasts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on Thursday.

Regardless, a sustained cyclonic circulation over the southwestern Bay of Bengal will bring scattered light rain or thunderstorms over Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Karaikal, Kerala and Mahe for the next 4-5 days.

Minimum temperature trend

The minimum (night) temperatures are currently 2-4 degrees Celsius above normal in many parts of the plains of northwest, central and eastern India, as clouds prevent solar radiation from escaping into the atmosphere. You could fall over the plains in the next two days as the western system moves east.

MP farmers are yet to receive crop insurance claims for the 2020 Kharif season

Moving clouds will help ensure that minimum temperatures over East India rise by 2-3 degrees Celsius by tomorrow. As in the plains of adjacent northwest India, lows over north Madhya Maharashtra can drop 2-4 degrees Celsius in the next 2-3 days as the clouds move away from west-central India.

Cold wave, thick fog

Cold waves can settle across parts of Punjab, Haryana, and Chandigarh, and across northern Rajasthan through Thursday, Wednesday through Saturday. Cold days can prevail in parts of Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.

Dense or very dense fog can fall on Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh during the night or morning hours for the next 4-5 days and on northern Rajasthan for the next three days, as the remaining moisture is on the trail of the western unrest caused by the Cold is cooled down by northwest winds pouring in.

Moderate to heavy rain

Meanwhile, the western disturbance brought on Monday at Kandaghat-8, Dharampur, Solan and Pachhad in Kandaghat-8, Dharampur, Solan and Pachhad above Himachal Pradesh various moderate to heavy precipitation (in cm) – 7 each; Rajgarh, Bharmaur, Khadrala, Kasauli, Sangraha, Shimla Airport, and Sirmaur – 6 each; Arki, Naina Davi, Baldwara, Jattom Barrage, Sundernagar, and Nahan – 5 each; Banjar, Kothi, Sarahan, Shimla, Mandi, Rampur, Karsog, Gohar and Manali – 4 pieces each.

Wheat acreage can end up lower when the rate of sowing slows down

East Madhya Pradesh (in cm): Pawai 6, Venkatnagar 6, Gonour 4 and Buxwaha 4. West Uttar Pradesh: Bijnor and Moradabad each 6, Amroha 5 and Nakur 4. East Uttar Pradesh: Chitrakoot 4; Haryana: Yamuna Nagar and Panchkula 5 respectively, Ambala 4 and Chandigarh 3; Uttarakhand: Dehradun 3.

Rain wanders east

Warm, moist air blowing over cooler ground rolled an envelope of dense to very dense fog in parts of Punjab, northwest Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, eastern Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Odisha. Scattered showers of hail occurred over the familiar terrain along the plains of Vidarbha.

Rainhead traveling eastward will trigger scattered to fairly widespread light or moderate rainfall over Vidarbha, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Sikkim and Odisha through Friday. Over Uttar Pradesh and east of Madhya Pradesh sporadic to sporadic rains can last until tomorrow (Thursday).

Single heavy rains can lash Odisha today (Tuesday) and Thursday. Isolated thunderstorms, lightning and hail can spread over Vidarbha on these days; today over Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar and the hills of West Bengal; over the hills of West Bengal, Sikkim and Telangana tomorrow (Wednesday); and about Odisha on Thursday.

Across Arunachal Pradesh, rain or snowfall is likely sporadically to fairly widespread until Thursday and sporadically over Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura tomorrow (Wednesday).
