BIRDSEYE VIEW POSTS

Since 2012 on the now retired Weather Underground blogs, I have been posting annotated "birdseye view" charts of the Atlantic basin, with a detailed explanation and forecasting that references the chart. From there you may know me as "NCHurricane2009." While I now do these "birdseye view" posts here, I will continue to do comments at Yale Climate Connections via Disqus where the former Weather Underground community has moved to. Feel free to reply to me there, at my Disqus feed at this link, or via e-mail at IOHurricanes@outlook.com

MY 2022 ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON BIRDSEYE VIEW POST #110A (Special Update)

*******Note that forecast and outlooks in this post are NOT the official forecast from the National Hurricane Center (NHC). They are my own detailed views on the Atlantic tropics based on current observations and latest computer model runs. As such do not make decisions based on my posts...consult news media...watches and warnings from your local weather office...and any evacuation orders issued by local governments to make the most informed and best decisions.

...SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 24 2022 10:30 PM EDT...

Satellite image of the remnant frontal cyclone of what was Hurricane Fiona as the sun set over it on Saturday evening... image taken at 2040Z:

The following is a special update on the still-strong remnant frontal cyclone of what was Hurricane Fiona which continues to impact Atlantic Canada while centered in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. For more information on Tropical Storms Ian... Gaston... and Hermine... as well as areas of interest being watched for future development... refer to full update #110 issued early this morning and available on the home page of this site. I will release my next full update on the Atlantic tropics by early Sunday morning.


The remnant frontal cyclone of Fiona has whirled into the Gulf of St. Lawrence and beneath an upper vortex embedded in the large-scale upper trough it has been interacting with. The cyclone is gradually weakening but still strong while trapped beneath the core of the upper vortex where upper divergence is lacking. Therefore peak wind and coastal surf impacts... with some damage potential... still loom for eastern Quebec and Labrador for Sunday as the cyclone and upper vortex lift northward in tandem and across these areas... while steered in the flow between additional upper troughs approaching from the west and north Atlantic upper ridge to the east. Meanwhile weather conditions will gradually improve for Nova Scotia... New Brunswick... and Newfoundland on Sunday. By Monday the cyclone will finally clear Atlantic Canada as it decays in the far north waters between northeast Canada and western Greenland.
