The Northeast had a record October bomb cyclone dropping the pressure in Boston to 975.3mb. The pressure fell 30mb in 15hrs from Wednesday evening into Thursday morning. More than a half of a million people lost power as trees took out power lines. Schools were closed, trains stopped, boats broke free and sank offshore.
In the Gulf of Mexico a storm is expected to pull together. It is being called Potential Tropical Cyclone Sixteen (PTC16) and is expected to develop Friday and make landfall Friday night into Saturday. PTC 16 may have much of the storm sheared to the east and north of the center. Concerns are heavy rain, severe weather and storm surge for Georgia, Florida, coastal Carolinas and Alabama.
After the weekend subtropical or tropical storm, look for severe weather to develop on the tail of a low that forms over the Dakotas and moves east. The worst of which maybe in the south, between Oklahoma and Alabama.
