Euro Model Major Storm Threat Midweek
After seeing all the models come in I think it is safe at this point to say that the Euro Model Major Storm Threat Midweek idea to me looks like the best solution at this point. The biggest threat will be from heavy rains and from coastal flooding and beach erosion. Actually coastal flooding issues could begin as early as Monday night as high pressure builds to the north and a strengthening onshore flow begins late Monday and continues into Wednesday night. Monday is a full moon and its influence on tides will continue into the middle of the week. Being that the storm appears to be taking a westward track inland could be a blessing in disguise as a coastal storm with the full moon and high tides would not have been a good combination.

The last several runs of the European have been pretty consistent and certainly the European has been much more consistent than the other models especially the GFS which has put this storm anywhere between Los Angeles and Lisbon or at least it seems that way.
Now here are the remaining issues in my view. There is a lead area that comes out later Tuesday and Tuesday night. This piece is getting less and less impressive with every run as the the second lobe of upper air energy behind it becomes more dominant. This has been the model error all along on all models. The presence of so many areas of energy have caused to key differently on every run. It finally figured out that rather than the first system being the dominant player, it was the second one behind it that became the main player and times well with the northern jet stream to take a storm inland of the coast. There has been chatter about “blocking” and whether or not it is there. There is some high latitude blocking evident and in fact the NAO actually goes slightly negative early next week. But that blocking is not enough to keep the high to the north from going out and taking the cold air with it. Nor is that blocking enough to force a more favorable, or at least, a less unfavorable track.

Now back to that lead piece. If that precipitation were to get in here fast enough it could mean some snow or ice Tuesday night before the cold air disappears. The European and other models play this down. The NAM has a more aggressive lead short wave that comes out. I think we will get some clues about this later today and tonight. That model has been good this winter telegraphing precipitation faster than what global models have shown. It has done this several times over the last few weeks. This is not to say it has been perfect but it is still something to consider.
