1PacificRedwood (Mon.) Tropical Storm Harvey has been stalled in place with high pressure on its North side, West side and East side. On the North side there is an upper level low pressure system. On the East side, a large disturbance is developing with a good chance of hurricane formation in 48 hours. On its West side the system is blocked as well. Looking at the pressure maps there are a lot of squiggly isobars indicating turbulent airflow patterns, which are being caused by these microwave transmitters forcing descending air into weather systems to either generate blockades or to destroy supercells. This descending air activity near the center of Harvey is causing tornadoes in the SE Texas area.
A very similar situation occurred with hurricane Joaquin September 30 through October 5, 2015. Joaquin was stalled in place and its moisture flow drowned South Carolina for three days straight. This channel covered that storm. Watch the videos.
On the West coast there is a surface closed low pressure system located over Nevada and California. Looking at the 500 mb map there is an installed closed high pressurize zone stacked on top of that closed low pressure area – and those squiggly isobars represent the warm descending air intermixing with the low pressure causing a turbulent flow which is represented by the squiggly lines on the pressure maps. The installed high pressure zone is dominating and ‘squashing’ the low pressure area creating very hot temperatures and low humidity over the Southwest over the next few days. This installed high pressure will also block and re-route the upper level low pressure offshore that formed from the remnants of hurricane Kenneth.
