Satellite imagery over Florida shows considerable cloudiness covering much of the northern half of the state. Long fetch of NE winds along the U.S. east coast and the trailing end of a long cold front is the culprit for the clouds and a few small showers along the Florida east coast as it moved down the peninsula.
While Florida experiences a cooler and drier air mass behind a frontal boundary that produced severe weather across the peninsula yesterday the next in a series of intense extratropical cyclones to hit the eastern U.S. forms off of the Virginia coastline. The two ‘holes’ in the clouds mark the location of center of the surface low pressure as it intensifies. Heavy snow will occur in regions hit by the prior storms.
On this first day of Spring satellite imagery shows an active thunderstorm day developing across the peninsula. Strong to severe thunderstorms are likely this afternoon and evening. Stay weather aware!
Satellite imagery over Florida shows the leading edge of the storm system which will bring the potential for severe weather to the state over the next 2-3 days. Interesting feature is the cold air sinking southward (cold air damming) along the mid-Atlantic coast which will bring snow to region from the same storm system.
GeoColor satellite imagery over Florida shows a vigorous cold front and associated line of showers and thunderstorms moving down the Florida Peninsula. This front will also be the one of the driving forces that aids in the development of the next major extratropical cyclone that will impact the northeast U.S.
Satellite imagery over Florida shows mid and upper level clouds overspreading the peninsula ahead of a mid level disturbance over the Gulf of Mexico. This disturbance will move across south Florida today while a more potent cold front currently seen over the southeast U.S. will impact the state later in the weekend.
While Florida experiences a cooler and drier air mass behind a frontal boundary the next intense extratropical cyclone forms off of the New England coastline. A hole in the clouds ‘eye’ marks the location of surface low pressure off the New Jersey coast. Heavy snow will occur in regions just hit by the most recent Nor’easter storm.
Satellite imagery over Florida shows the next cold front moving across the state. Widespread cloudiness with showers and isolated thunderstorms currently over the panhandle region will travel east-southeast across the remainder of the peninsula during the next 24 hours.
Satellite imagery over Florida continues to shows mainly clear skies over the peninsula. The exceptions will be mid level clouds will traversing northern parts of the state and marine stratocumulus clouds straddling the east coast. Rough marine conditions continue offshore the east coast in the wake of the major extratropical cyclone that battered the northeast.
While Florida experiences a slightly cooler and drier air mass behind a frontal boundary a ‘bomb’ cyclone forms off of the New England coastline. An ‘eye’ marking the location of surface low pressure can be seen on satellite imagery. Hurricane force winds and storm surge along with heavy rain and snow occurring across much of the northeast U.S.
