...SUMMARY...
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN NEW YORK NY HAS CONFIRMED A
MACROBURST /STRAIGHT LINE WIND DAMAGE/ NEAR MIDDLE VILLAGE IN QUEENS
COUNTY NY ON SEPTEMBER 16 2010.

THE PATH OF THE MACROBURST WAS FROM MIDDLE VILLAGE TO FOREST HILLS.

IN FOREST HILLS...

AT MACDONALD PARK...A FIELD OF TREES WERE SHEARED OFF WHICH COMPLETELY
DEMOLISHED THIS PARK. MANY WHOLE TREES AND LARGE BRANCHES WERE DOWNED
IN A DIVERGENT PATTERN. THIS WAS A CLEAR SIGNATURE OF MACROBURST WIND
DAMAGE. THIS AREA WAS BOUNDED BY QUEENS BLVD. AND 69TH ROAD TO THE NORTHEAST
NEAR THE INTERSECTION OF YELLOWSTONE BLVD.

JUST SOUTHWEST OF THE LONG ISLAND EXPRESSWAY ALONG 63RD AVENUE AND NEAR
THE INTERSECTIONS OF REEVES AVENUE AND 146TH STREET AND PLACE...MANY
HUGE HEALTHY 36 INCH DIAMETER TREES FELL IN NEARLY THE SAME DIRECTION
IN NARROW ROADS. DOWNED TREES DESTROYED MANY CARS AND MADE ENTRIES TO
HOUSES IMPASSABLE. WIDESPREAD TREE DAMAGE MADE MANY SECONDARY AND TERTIARY
ROADS IMPASSABLE.

MANY WHOLE TREES AND LARGE BRANCHES WERE DOWNED NEAR QUEENS COLLEGE...
ALONG DARTMOUTH STREET IN FOREST HILLS GARDEN AND ALONG PARK DRIVE
EAST IN KEW GARDEN HILLS.

FOR REFERENCE...
A MACROBURST IS A CONVECTIVE DOWNDRAFT WITH AN AFFECTED OUTFLOW AREA
OF AT LEAST 2 1/2 MILES WIDE AND PEAK WINDS LASTING BETWEEN 5 AND 20
MINUTES. INTENSE MACROBURSTS MAY CAUSE TORNADO-FORCE DAMAGE OF UP TO
EF3 INTENSITY. STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS ARE GENERALLY ANY WIND THAT IS
NOT ASSOCIATED WITH ROTATION...USED MAINLY TO DIFFERENTIATE THEM
FROM TORNADIC WINDS.

&&

THIS WAS A WIDESPREAD SIGNIFICANT SEVERE WEATHER EVENT THAT IMPACTED
PARTS OF METRO NEW JERSEY...NEW YORK CITY...WESTERN LONG ISLAND AND
SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH CENTRAL CONNECTICUT.

IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE FOR THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TO VISIT ALL
IMPACTED AREAS. AS A LINE OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS SWEPT EAST ACROSS
THE REGION...HIGH WINDS ALSO PRODUCED WIND DAMAGE ACROSS PARTS OF
BOTH NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN STATEN ISLAND...FAIRFIELD AND NEW HAVEN
COUNTIES IN CONNECTICUT AND IN NASSAU COUNTY NY.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE THANKS THE NYC OFFICE OF EMERGENCY
MANAGEMENT FOR ALL OF THEIR SUPPORT INCLUDING THE PROVISION OF
COORDINATION...CONDUCT AND SECURITY CLEARANCE FOR THE NWS TO

AREAS AFFECTED...NERN MD....SERN PA...MUCH OF NJ...NRN DE

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY

VALID 162037Z - 162130Z

ISOLATED STRONG TO MARGINALLY SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS MAY DEVELOP FROM
NERN MD INTO CNTRL NJ OVER THE NEXT FEW HRS
. A WW IS NOT ANTICIPATED
DUE TO THE EXPECTED ISOLATED NATURE OF THE SEVERE THREAT...BUT
CONVECTIVE TRENDS WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED.

RECENT RADAR/SATELLITE TRENDS INDICATE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE
DEVELOPED ALONG A WEAK SFC WAVE/CONFLUENCE ZONE...EXTENDING FROM A
DEEPENING SFC LOW OVER CNTRL NJ. INSTABILITY HAS BECOME MAXIMIZED
AHEAD OF THIS FEATURE ACROSS THE SRN HALF OF NJ...WHERE OBJECTIVE
ANALYSIS FIELDS INDICATE MLCAPE OF 1500-2000 J/KG. INCREASING NEARLY
UNIDIRECTIONAL DEEP-LAYER FLOW AHEAD OF AN UPPER SHORTWAVE TROUGH
HAS RESULTED IN EFFECTIVE SHEAR VALUES AROUND 30 KTS...SUPPORTIVE OF
MULTICELLULAR LINE SEGMENTS...ALTHOUGH OCCASIONAL EMBEDDED
SUPERCELLULAR STRUCTURES MAY OCCASIONALLY BE OBSERVED. GIVEN THE
EXPECTED CONVECTIVE MODE...THE PRIMARY THREAT ASSOCIATED WITH THESE
STORMS WILL LIKELY BE STRONG GUSTY WINDS. HOWEVER...THE POTENTIAL
FOR AN ISOLATED TORNADO MAY STILL EXIST...PARTICULARLY WHERE LOCALLY
BACKED SFC WINDS MAY ENHANCE LOW-LEVEL SHEAR IMMEDIATELY AHEAD OF
THE APPROACHING SFC WAVE.
