Inauguration weather

Barack Obama won't have the weather as the first concern of his presidency, unlike some of his predecessors. The weather for Tuesday's swearing in ceremony promises to be precipitation-free, with a mix of sun and clouds. With temperatures in the low 30s and a moderate north wind of 10-15 mph, he'll have to bundle up, though. As the afternoon progresses, clouds will dominate for the parade, but the weather at the inauguration promises to be a non-story, unlike some previous occasions:

Most Dramatic and Tragic - 1841:
President William Henry Harrison was sworn into office on a cloudy, windy day, with temperatures in the mid to upper 40s. His speech lasted one hour and 40 minutes, and he rode a horse to and from the Capitol, without wearing a hat or overcoat. Pneumonia developed from a lingering cold he caught on that day and he died just one month later.

Almost as bad - 1853:
President Franklin Pierce was sworn into office during a snowstorm, with temperatures near freezing. Shortly after Pierce took his oath of office, as he began his inaugural address, heavier snow began falling, dispersing much of the crowd and ruining plans for the parade. Abigail Fillmore, First Lady to the outgoing President Millard Fillmore, caught a cold as she sat on the cold, wet, exposed platform during the swearing-in ceremony. The cold developed into pneumonia and she died at the end of the month.

Worst Weather Day - 1909:
President William H. Taft's ceremony was forced indoors due to a storm that dropped 10 inches of snow over the Capital city. The snow and winds began the day before, toppling trees and telephone poles. Trains were stalled, and city streets clogged, bringing all activity to a standstill. Sanitation workers shoveled sand and snow through the night. It took 6,000 men and 500 wagons to clear 58,000 tons of snow and slush from the parade route. Despite the freezing temperatures, howling wind, snow, and sleet, a large crowd gathered in front of the Capitol to view the inauguration, but the weather forced the ceremony indoors. Just after the swearing-in, the snow tapered off.


Figure 1. Inauguration day, 1909. Workers shovel away heavy snow from in front of President Taft's reviewing stand (left). President Taft and wife returning to the White House after the ceremony (right).

The material for this post was taken from an excellent Presidential Inaugural Weather web page put together by the National Weather Service forecast office in Washington D.C. The page has loads more information, for those interested.

Good luck, Mr. Obama!

I'll have a new post on Wednesday.

Tropical Disturbance Summary
TROPICAL DEPRESSION SIX-F
9:00 AM FST January 21 2009
======================================

At 21:00 PM UTC, Tropical Depression Six-F (1006 hPa) located at 13.8E 158.2W is reported as moving slowly. Position GOOD based on infrared/visible imagery with animation, peripheral observations, and latest QUIKSCAT Pass. Sea surface temperature is around 29C.

Tropical Depression SIX lies embedded in a monsoonal trough under a 250 hPa diffluent region in a moderately sheared environment. Low level circulation center is exposed and lies to the west of the deep convection. TD SIX is expected to remain in this area under an upper ridge axis within the next 12-24 hours before moving into an area of increasing shear and cooler sea surface temperatures.

Global models (US/UK/GFS] has picked up the system and moves it southwest then south with little intensification.

POTENTIAL FOR TD SIX TO DEVELOP INTO A TROPICAL CYCLONE IN THE NEXT 24 TO 48 HOURS IS LOW.

I have a strange feeling that Wednesday will dip down much further then what their advertising Wednesday night here in Orlando. Forecast low is 27F. However, if the high pressure sits directly on to at the right time we could surpass 1977 and 1985! Although conditions are otherwise ripe, there's just one fly in the ointment concerning frost-The very low dewpoint air tomorrow!

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center that has 100 knot is 1 minute sustained winds average.. even so it should actually have read 115 knots instead of 100 knots.

HWFBura said CI# /Pressure/ Vmax
6.1 / 925.6mb/117.4kt

117.4kt=135mph but he could be wrong
going by appearance it's a 135mph cat 4 and advisories are sometimes show lower wind speeds than actual especially in other oceans like hurricane Dean last year was a cat 5 south of Hispaniola but the advisories when I was tracking it said 150mph


remember, they use 10-min sustained and we use 1-min sustained for measurement...keeping that in mind, it is possible that is both a Cat 3 and a Cat 4 on the SSHS

MIMIC is a sobering look at Fanele. The nightmare storm, that forms fairly close to land & intensifies rapidly on the way there. North side of the eye looks horrid.

Generally except for those skiing fanatics, it is not worth taking up the storage space to store winter gear. So we layer it. My trick for cold wet (rain or snow) is this. You need two plastic bread bags. If you notice they are very soft and just the perfect shape to fit over your food. Put on cotton socks first, then the bag (as far up the leg as it will go), then long wool socks, cram on your shoes - and voila! good as snow shoes.

Kennedy Collapsed

January 20, 2009 2:46 PM Link

Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., who is battling a brain tumor, was taken away from the congressional luncheon in convulsions.

Kennedy was at a table with Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and others, and was taken out of the room. President Barack Obama went out of the room with him, but he is back in the luncheon room now.

Obama just spoke to the luncheon about Kennedy, appearing extremely sober:

"First of all, I know that while I was out of the room, concern was expressed about Teddy," Obama said. "He was there when the Voting Rights Act passed. And, along with John Lewis, was a warrior for justice. And so I would be lying to you if I did not say that right now a part of me is with him. And I think that is true for all of us. This is a joyous time, but it's also a sobering time. And my prayers are with him and his family and Vicki."

There are also reports that Sen. Byrd, D-W.Va., who is very close to Kennedy, was also taken out of the room. Byrd was conscious when he was taken from the room. The two have been friends for a very, very long time.

An ambulance could be seen driving from the U.S. Capitol.

A friend was commenting on how much colder she feels today - as opposed to the other day when we looking at the possibility of breaking records for low temps. - The humidity it 71% and the cold does seem to just seep into one's bones.

I have turned my little (analog) TV on only 5 times in the last 2 years. This is the first that I have watched it for more than 30 minutes at one time. - Very exciting - Multi-tasking - keeping an eye on the weather as well.

Broad bands of stratocumulus are forming over the Nature coast at this time. If they can stick around north of the bay until we reach the melting point of 37 degrees, we'll see some flakes mixing in with light rain. But unfortunately, it appears to me now that the moisture should stay just ahead of the snow-appropriate temps. Nonetheless, as the light rain spreads over the area this evening, there will not be enough sunlight left to evaporate the rain and I would expect widespread areas of ice to form tonight.... that is if the winds can die down enough. Just be sure to drive with caution in the morning in anticipation of possible ice on the ground.

Would love to hear from you folks in North Carolina. How goes it?

I am not sure if we are still having problems with the blog - appears that is the case. Hope it is cleared up and folks along the East Coast CONUS check in with their weather conditions
