Nor'easter Beginning to Take Shape

As of this morning, the two pieces of energy needed for the Nor'easter are making their rendezvous point around the offshore areas of Georgia and South Carolina. We have an energized clipper system currently in place over southern Illinois, and the second piece of energy containing much of the moisture centered to the west of Florida. The systems will continue to be forced east as a massive ridge can be seen over the Western US, distinguished by the large arching lines.

As I mentioned earlier, much of the moisture and initial energy will be coming from the second system near Florida. This is another infrared view, showing just how little moisture and energy the clipper has to work with (scattered colors over WI/IL) at this time.

Again- they are on their way and will be phasing likely beginning today.

Sorry, I haven't been able to post much today. Things are busy. Wind swept heavy rain has been a problem and minor flooding is occurring right now.
