A really nasty polar cold front rolled through the Pacific NW Mon & Tue leaving freezing temperatures and snow in its wake as it headed east. It rolled through the Rockies and Colorado dropping temperatures 56°+ leaving 4-8" of snow Wed night and Thurs morning as it continues to roll east. Being in Chicago and NY may not be fun come the weekend.

Ed. for correct temp drop

A Northeast storm will intensify into a bomb cyclone, forecasters say

https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/16/weather/ ... index.html
A potential bomb cyclone is quickly taking shape along the eastern seaboard and is getting ready to wallop the Northeast. The storm is expected to begin rapidly intensifying later Wednesday morning.

The pressure of the system could drop more than 30 millibars in 24 hours -- making this a bomb cyclone, the National Weather Service in Boston said Wednesday.

:snippity:

Winds could reach tropical-storm force (39 mph+) with even higher gusts by Wednesday and Thursday for places such as New York City, Boston and Portland, Maine.

Some areas could top out with winds reaching more than 60 mph. With a majority of trees still holding on to most of their leaves, these winds could have an easier time bringing down trees and power lines, potentially cutting power to thousands of people.

Florida starting to get ready.

Mandatory evacuations issued in Franklin County, closures announced

https://www.wtxl.com/news/local-news/ma ... -announced
Franklin County Emergency Management has issued mandatory evacuations for all campgrounds and is urging citizens on the coast and low lying areas to move to higher ground ahead of an anticipated tropical storm.

EVACUATIONS:

Officials say mandatory evacuations have been issued for all campgrounds in Franklin County. You are being asked to move your campers inland until the storm passes.

The county is also urging people who live along the coastline and Barrier Islands, in low lying areas, in river areas that are prone to surge or flooding from tidal surge to move to higher ground.

People living along Alligator Point Road are also being asked to move to higher ground as the road is likely to erode due to storm surge and wave action.

It is currently 23F, winds from 30-40 mph, and snowing. I decided to start winter a little early. The fun spending time at 8,000 feet above sea level.

There is an amazing video of lightning lighting up the night sky of Dallas, framing a tornado. I saw it via a FB page for PDX weather. Interestingly, I had just talked to my husband (he's in Norman, OK, at the moment for school) about the possibility of night tornadoes. Pauls Valley, about 40 miles south of Norman, is having a supercell go through and he thought he might experience a tornado for the first time.

‘A life-threatening situation’: Dallas tornado devastates homes, leaves thousands without power

A tornado and several violent thunderstorms tore through the Dallas area Sunday night, destroying homes and businesses, lifting debris at least three miles in the air and leaving tens of thousands of people without power.

The severe storms, featuring 70 mph winds, heavy rain, lightning and half-dollar-sized hail, left 65,000 people without power Sunday night, according to Oncor, the state’s largest utility company.

“Damage is significant in the areas where the tornado touched down,” Oncor tweeted.

The city of Dallas said there are no reports of fatalities, but first responders were working overnight to check on residents in a door-to-door search, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Invest #97L appears to have a closed low level vortex exposed just west of its deep convective plume. It’s nearly a TD, but right on its heels is a rapidly advancing cold front dropping south from Texas.

It’s unclear how this strong (but shallow) front will impact 97L’s vortex.
