June 22, 2012 Severe Weather
& Downbursts in D.C.

PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BALTIMORE MD/WASHINGTON DC
1119 PM EDT SAT JUN 23 2012

...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

...DOWNBURSTS CONFIRMED IN BLADENSBURG AND JOHNSVILLE MARYLAND...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN STERLING VIRGINIA HAS CONFIRMED THAT DAMAGE IN 
TWO MARYLAND LOCALES FROM THUNDERSTORMS ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING 22 JUNE 2012 
WAS THE RESULT OF DOWNBURST WINDS.

IN JOHNSVILLE MARYLAND...THE ROOF OF A DAIRY BARN WAS DESTROYED AND BLOWN DOWNWIND FOR 
SEVERAL HUNDRED FEET. NUMEROUS TREES WERE UPROOTED AND LARGE LIMBS WERE SNAPPED. WIND 
IN THIS DOWNBURST WAS ESTIMATED AT AROUND 80 MPH.

IN BLADENSBURG MARYLAND...EXTENSIVE DAMAGE OCCURRED TO BUILDINGS AND TREES. ALONG 
NEWTON STREET...ROOF DAMAGE WAS SUSTAINED AT AN APARTMENT BUILDING. PIECES OF THE ROOF 
WERE BLOWN DOWNWIND AND DAMAGED VEHICLES. ADDITIONAL HOMES IN THE AREA SUFFERED ROOF
UPLIFT. NUMEROUS TREES WERE UPROOTED...AND MANY LARGE LIMBS WERE SNAPPED. POWER POLES 
ALSO WERE OBSERVED TO BE LEANING. WIND IN THIS DOWNBURST WAS ESTIMATED TO BE 90 TO 100 
MPH.

A DOWNBURST OCCURS WHEN COLD AIR HIGH IN A THUNDERSTORM DESCENDS AND ACCELERATES. AS 
THE STREAM OF COLD AIR REACHES THE GROUND...IT SPREADS OUT AND CAN ACCELERATE FURTHER. 
WHEN ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE...WIND IN A DOWNBURST CAN EXCEED 80 TO 100 
MPH. SUCH WIND IS COMPARABLE TO OR STRONGER THAN MANY TORNADOES AND CAN CAUSE SIMILAR 
DAMAGE.

IN SOME CASES...HAIL AND VERY HEAVY RAIN ALSO ACCOMPANY THE DOWNBURST...LEADING TO 
FLOODING AND SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE FROM WIND-DRIVEN HAIL.

A LOCALIZED DOWNBURST...CALLED A MICROBURST...OCCURRED ON 1 AUGUST 1983 AT ANDREWS AIR 
FORCE BASE...WHERE A GUST OF 158 MPH WAS RECORDED. THIS DOWNBURST WAS ANALYZED IN 
DETAIL BY DR. TED FUJITA...WHO PIONEERED THE CONCEPT OF WIND DAMAGE SURVEYS.

A WELL-SITED DOPPLER RADAR CAN OFFER HIGH CONFIDENCE THAT A DOWNBURST HAS OCCURRED. AS 
DOWNBURST AIR REACHES THE GROUND AND SPREADS OUTWARD...A DIVERGENT WIND SIGNATURE 
PROVIDES A TELLTALE SIGN THAT A DOWNBURST IS OCCURRING. IN BOTH STORMS ON 22 JUNE...
SUCH WIND SIGNATURES WERE OBSERVED IN BOTH NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR AND 
FAA TERMINAL DOPPLER RADAR DATA.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN STERLING APPRECIATES ALL DAMAGE REPORTS AND 
INFORMATION PROVIDED BY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT...STORM SPOTTERS...BROADCAST MEDIA AND 
THE PUBLIC.

Still image of a downburst radar signature in Northeast D.C.

The image below is of velocity from TDCA at 2352 UTC (7:52pm), just a couple of minutes before intense winds near 100 mph caused damage just south of Bladensburg, MD. The blue arrow represents the downburst (downdraft) heading toward the surface. The red arrow represents the less intense side of the downburst once it reaches the surface, while the larger green arrow is where the most intense "straight-line winds" are accelerating away from where the downburst initially made contact with the ground. The colors represent the horizontal direction at which meteorological targets (rain in this case) are moving, relative to the location of the radar - which is to the south and east of the downburst impact area. Red colors represent air/raindrops moving away from the radar and green represents air/raindrops moving toward the radar. In this image, the brighter the color, the higher the speeds.

Several downbursts occurred along a line from Bethesda to Bladensburg, a few of them chronicled in the .gif images above. The one-minute lowest-degree data provided by the FAA TDWRs gives an amazing account of just how quickly downbursts can occur and their relatively short lifecycle. The downbursts that impacted northern sections of Washington D.C. and the surrounding suburbs occurred within a 2-3 minute window, covering several square miles and causing sporadic damage, depending in the strength of the straight-line winds.
