The North Atlantic has been incredibly active this winter, producing numerous intense extra-tropical cyclones in the past few weeks. While on the other hand, the European continent has been more or less trapped under strong ridging pattern and high-pressure systems. There have been at least 6 large cyclones, most of them were going through rapid intensification phases.
Another explosive cyclogenesis will take place over the Northwest Atlantic today, will push severe windstorm and major waves towards Greenland and Iceland over the weekend. A positive NAO pattern continues – meaning above normal activity of the Atlantic storms. An upper wave is currently ejecting southeast Canada and expected to develop yet another rapidly intensifying extra-tropical cyclone today. Models are forecasting a violent windstorm again. Thankfully, the system will stay over the open waters of Northwest Atlantic during its peak strength (hurricane-force winds) tonight and will not pose any significant threats to land areas until Sunday when high swell pushes towards southwest Iceland. 18 UTC analysis on Jan 16th indicated a developing cyclone just off the northeast US coast, with a rapidly intensifying process expected to begin within the next 24 hours. Hurricane-force winds will develop while the system will be moving along far eastern Canada into the open waters of the Northwest Atlantic ocean. Severe Weather Europe
