East Coast Low

#1 Postby Alyono » Fri Jul 20, 2018 4:01 am

The expected nontropical low is taking shape now off of South Carolina. I have to admit, it's looking a bit better than I expected, though I still do not expect tropical or subtropical development from this feature

I would imagine they wouldn’t say anything, because if it did show signs of development, they would have to make it a Potential Tropical Cyclone and issue warnings for the Mid-Atlantic and NE, which would be a lot harder than just having the NWS offices issue gale warnings and possibly wind advisories if needed

Surface lows often form at the extreme southwestern end of the trough.
Looks like this front made it down into the gulf south of NOLA so until we get a better idea of where the low surface pressure is going to show persistence..

According to IR sats it is building quite nicely off shore. Does look as if center is right along coast. Quite surprised by the intensity off shore it does appear that there are a lot of building heights. IR and visible sat are quite impressive. Certainty not going to be tropical but should be interesting to the tourist as they leave and enter for the weekend (we have an evacuation every Saturday here). Looking outside the altostrats are appearing with a few cumulus and a couple CB’s just off shore.
