Also, I've been doing a little research on the "Storm of The Century", the March 12-13 1993 super storm that dumped more than a foot of snow on Atlanta. I remember the snow coming down so hard you could hardly see and watching the sky glow when the lightning flashed and the thunder rolled. It has to rank in the top two weather events I've ever seen.
I now have the old NWS maps and charts dating from March 1 through March 14, 1993. It's interesting to see what the weather was like leading up to the storm and be able to watch how it evolved. It was very fast moving once it got rolling and was out of here on the 14th. The entire storm was created through the phasing of multiple jet streams If you don't remember or don't know about the storm or if you'd like to read more, click here. Be sure to see all of the images for additional detail. You can read the Executive Summary here
Here are the links for maps for the days leading up to the storm. These maps are large so you can see the detail and each one contains 4 seperate maps:
One of the posted images is an animated gif that won't play up here, this is the link for that.
Where were you for this great storm? Share your memories and photos if you have any!
As always, I'm adding new pages to the website and over the last several weeks, have probably added 70-80 new pages. I should have kept a list but that would be too easy. There are about 50 new pages of the National Weather Service GFS model images and loops (they are located on my menu under Models, GFS Model, NWS GFS Model Images).
Here's just a few that were added:
- UV Index
- Model Run Status
- Model Verification Scores
- Arctic Oscillation Chart
- NAO Chart
- PNA chart
- AO Bias
- MJO CFSv2 & GFS Charts
- MJO Phase Charts
- GFS Stratosphere Temps
- GFS Stratosphere Heights
- Stratosphere and Troposphere Details
- ECMWF Stratosphere Temps and Heights
- ECMWF Zonal Sections
- ECMWF Zonal Averages
- New SE Visible Satellite
- New US Visible Satellite
- Climate at a Glance
- GFS 850mb Anomalies
- P-Type Nomograms
I'm sure there are more that I haven't posted here. Take some time to explore the many different pages I have, I know you'll find something of interest. I'm in a never ending quest to add more stuff so if I don't have what you're looking for, let me know and I'll see what I can do!
In a future post, I'll let you know what pages I look at the most when bad weather is on the way.
