Another week, another Nor’Easter. It is starting to be a weekly routine in the Mid Atlantic and New England. A surface low will develop off the Delmarva Peninsula tonight and will drift northward as it develops. There is more confidence that the track will be closer to the coast and the result will be more precipitation, mostly in the form of snow. As a result, Winter Storm Warnings have been issued for a good part of the region.

I just ran thwe NAM radar model for Christmas Eve and things look quiet for the Treasure Coast. Areas to our north around Georgia and North Florida looks like rain could be the rule. The air flow in Florida has now shifted to an onshore breeze and with that comes a moister air flow with an increased chance of showers the next couple of days. By Christmas, this flow will turn more from the south and long with the very warm temperatures, we will be looking at low rain chances in the 10% range as is being replicated in the NAM model.
***Morning Bertha Update***
Tropical Storm Bertha is now moving near the Southeastern Bahamas. The Tropical Storm watches for the Central Bahamas has been dropped.
The cloud pattern of Bertha has gotten better organized overnight. banding features are starting to finally materialize as the system moves into an area of lower shear and high water temperatures.
NOAA Aircraft confirms that the low-level circulation is getting better defined.
The cyclone will continue to move around the edge of the ridge and move north and then north-east out to sea.
CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY…
Hi all and welcome to Hurricane Season 2014. The forecast for this year is projected to be an average to slightly below average season for the Atlantic. This forecast is due to a phenomena known as El Nino. El Nino is a warming of the tropical Pacific that affects the weather across the globe. Normally this scenario will help to suppress the formation of storms by creating strong trade winds that blow across the Atlantic.
Update….All our radars have now been converted to Flash as of 2/26/14!
Like many websites, our website uses the Java platform for some of our messaging features and radar loops. To make the program more secure, Oracle has added security measures that make it harder to run anything that is Java based. Our site uses known safe and trusted scripts that are only used when absolutely necessary to get the weather information to you. Our primary use of Java is with our unique radar loops. Our loops are unique in the fact that they contain lots of information that can be useful for not only a homeowner or business but also to storm trackers. These loops currently can only be displayed with Java.
***The Largest North East Storm Of The Season Poised To Strike Today and Tomorrow****

Blizzard warnings are in effect for parts of Long Island and the Cape for strong winds with blowing snow later today and tonight.

Schools in Boston will be closed tomorrow and a snow emergency is in effect.
Uniden has announced a new line of police scanners today! We have been using Uniden scanners for years to bring you the live St. Lucie County police scanner action that we provide. There is no word on exactly what new features will be offered but they are coming out just in time for the holiday season. I know I will be watching, will you?
Police scanners can be very useful during severe weather events alerting to streets that might be flooded, tornado sightings and road closures. They should be a part of your emergency weather kit.
