Why isn't anyone else reporting this, I wonder? :-?

Anyways, the low pressure system that just dumped on the mid-west is supposed to continue heading N.E. as far as I've heard. I don't see how it'll still be around to contribute to this, unless the artic and pinapple systems kick things into high gear.

It's a Supercomputer sim of what is possible---we're partly cloudy now in San Diego, expecting rain tomorrow (Friday).

We're near freezing here in N MS. So much for that "unnamed warm, moist storm system from the Gulf of Mexico"! :roll:

No wonder I couldn't make it fit the real world! #-o

This is just great. We had 6 inches of rain in the last 2 days (2 of which are in my basement :evil: ) Now this is coming. The Mississippi river is way up as of 45 minutes ago when I crossed it. The last thing I need right now is another storm. I've heard people talking about the "Day After Tomorrow", and how it seems to be coming true. :o I just wish it would stay out of my basement.

We just had the worst ice storm in 50 years in Wichita, and now we're expecting to get dumped on by tons of snow?

Gmann/Crazieman. Are you guys just being funny, or did you get suckered in like I did? It's just a computer simulation. It ain't real!! :)

LMAO

My theory is it is going to be caused by pengo the giant killer turtle... he's real i swear :wink:

Unless this story was telling what just happened, as opposed to what is coming. I can't really tell. Our forecast calls for a few showers possible this aft, then a warming trend. On the 4th and 5th, we got almost 6 inches of rain in St.Louis. All of the rivers are above flood stage. My basement is above flood stage. Rescue teams have been pulling people out of cars stuck on flooded roads. I think you get the picture, it was not much fun, I just hope there isn't another one coming. :o

Big storm coming on shore in California today. Wonder if that one's on the same track. Hope you get missed this time, Gmann.

From a story in USA today yesterday it said this big convergence of 3 weather systems is supposed to occur early next week (i.e. 1/10 1/11).

Of course, as has been pointed out already, this is only a computer sim of what might occur.....

This whole thread just proves that the weather is perfectly normal. How often is there a time when the weather is not weird somewhere?

PS The DC area has been well above average in temperature for the past 8-9 days, moderate rain on several days, clear and warm (48 as of noon) today.

It started steady 2 hours ago (9AM) here (http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=90027) in Oceanside, where we're now at 3X our normal rainfall, with rain predicted for next 4-5 days.

I didn't see the computer model output the day of the linked article, but the computer models now are showing a similar, but less-extreme scenario to what the article describes. It's hardly as rare as they say, though, more like several times in a typical year.

...And the "storm" system from the Gulf of Mexico is just wrong. That's just the moisture source that feeds in some of the heat energy the storm uses to continue its development.

However, I loved this comment:

Somebody is in for something pretty darn interesting

=D> Way to go out on a limb! :D

It's not only N.America, this weekend northern England got pounded (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4158641.stm), along with Sweden, Denmark, the Baltic States, flooding in St. Petersburg. Some pictures of Tallinn (http://www.postimees.ee/090105/online_uudised/154639_foto1.php#33), and Parnu (http://www.postimees.ee/090105/online_uudised/154645_foto1.php#33).
Hoping some relatives didn't sustain much damage.

edit to fix link.
