Emily – Just a mid-latitude Low

Business Card 2FAX

 

Really Emily has been  nothing more than a Low.  Even now it sits off the Coast of Florida,  with Mininum Central Pressure of 1010mb.  The norm is 1013.2.   The other thing, is it did what was expected in terms of relative movement.  The issue now is more a rain event and most likely closer to the Outer Banks and then beating a hasty retreat NE.   You can see on satellite where it is being absorbed along the Cold Frontal Boundary.  The next system should be weaker.    I think that the NHC is being hopeful with their storm forecasts.   (Quite naturally).

The X off the coast of Africa shows some wave effect.  That should be entrained into the frontal boundary and remnants of Emily.  It gets a bit active this year and the system off the coast of Florida is pretty standard stuff.  Being inland the systems have these tiny impulses.  If they get a warm water(hot-spots) regime,  adiabatic processes are enhanced. But there are too many things that can happen between Cape Verde and the shores of the U.S.

...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 11 PM PDT
FRIDAY...

* TEMPERATURES...Record high temperatures are expected inland.
  Temperatures will climb to around 100 this afternoon, heating up
  to 104 to 108 on Wednesday and Thursday. The heat will continue
  into Friday, with temperatures near 100 likely. Low temperatures
  are expected to remain warm, dropping only into the mid 60s to
  lower 70s in the valleys. In the foothills and lower Cascades,
  overnight temperatures will remain very warm at night with lows
  only in the mid 70s to low 80s.

* TIMING...Today through the end of the week. Wednesday and
  Thursday will be the hottest days, with record setting high
  temperatures and poor overnight recovery. Friday could also be
  another record setting day. Above normal temperatures are
  expected to continue through early next week.

* IMPACTS...The elderly, people without access to air
  conditioning, and anyone engaged in prolonged outdoor
  activities will be be particularly vulnerable during this heat
  episode. Local power demand is expected to be at high levels.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. Hot temperatures will
create a dangerous situation in which heat related illnesses are
likely. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room,
stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency, call 9 1 1.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances, even for short periods of time.
This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car
interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Red Flag Warning

URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Portland OR
233 PM PDT Tue Aug 1 2017

...Multiple Fire Weather Hazards Across Northwest Oregon and
Southwest Washington this Week...

.Very hot temperatures with low humidity will affect the region
this week. There are a couple different impacts regarding fire
weather bringing potential for rapid fire spread. A thermal
trough has set up west of the Cascades and will drift from over
the Willamette Valley at night to over the Cascades during the
day. This will bring breezy winds to the Willamette Valley today
along with humidity below 25%. This thermal trough will also bring
very unstable low level conditions to the area through at least
Thursday, increasing the likelihood of plume dominated fire
activity mainly during the afternoons and evenings.

  primarily across the southern two thirds of Fire Weather Zone
  604 in the Willamette Valley. Dry and locally breezy
  conditions elsewhere.

* Instability...Mid-level Haines 6 and High-level Haines 5 or 6
  conditions will produce an unstable atmosphere conducive for
  rapid fire growth for all of Fire Weather Zone 604.

* Humidity...as low as 10-20%.

* Timing...Tuesday afternoon and evening.

* Affected Area...In Oregon...Fire Weather Zone 604 Willamette
  Valley.

* Impacts...FOR WIND/RH: Conditions may be favorable for rapid
  fire spread which may threaten life and property. Use extra
  caution with potential ignition sources, especially in grassy
  areas. FOR INSTABILITY: Conditions may be favorable for rapid
  spread on any new and existing fires. Extreme fire behavior is
  possible. Outdoor burning is not recommended.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now, or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures can
contribute to extreme fire behavior.
