Summary

  • Barry would fall within the “Southeast Recurvature” category for TC’s associated with PRE

    • “Left of track” PRE most common with this scenario
    • “PRE-Like” activity did occur left of Barry’s path from June 1st through 3rd
  • Some typically present PRE ingredients were lacking, despite decent moisture transport

    • Weak jet dynamics, lack of mid-level confluence / short-wave support, ill-defined boundaries
    • This is why the term “PRE-like” has been used
      • Even so, isolated flash flooding did occur
  • Should we categorize weakly forced vs. strongly forced PRE?

    • Mesoscale / orographic forcing perhaps takes on greater significance in weakly forced cases (Typical for ROT PRE?)
