Iraq Weather & Maps - 03/26/03
AccuWeather / Weather Channel / NOAA / CNN Weather | March 25th, 2003 | Sabertooth

Posted on 03/25/2003 10:13:12 PM PST by Sabertooth

Much cooler weather will move into Iraq Wednesday in the wake of the storm system. Visibility will improve across northern Iraq. Gusty winds over the south will keep the dust and sand flying.

High pressure will slowly build toward Iraq on Thursday. This will cuase the wind to ease resulting in an end to the dust storms. Warmer air will also build back into the country.

In a small effort to help America keep tabs on loved ones overseas, Weather Underground now offers free, downloadable Middle East weather maps suitable for publication. Keep your readers informed, with color graphics and accurate weather information - free.

Here's what our troops have been under...




And here's how it was on the ground...


A real desert storm slows the war in Iraq

Sandstorms slowed Baghdad-bound troops on grounded scores of aircraft and blinded the array of electronic eyes needed not only to target and attack Iraq, but to separate friend from foe.

Freak thunderstorms also thwarted badly needed humanitarian aid to the country's sick and starving.

War's most volatile variable" bad weather" was gumming up guns, breaking down engines and generally slowing a military campaign built for speed, forcing the U.S.-led military to "re-choreograph" the assault on Saddam Hussein's regime, said former Gen. John Abrams, who commanded the U.S.-led deployment to Bosnia.

"If you show up with a force that doesn't have a broad suite of contingencies, you get stymied," Abrams said. "The question that comes up with this situation is: Does this force have the width of capabilities to compensate?"

Reports from throughout the theater showed nature playing the role of third combatant. In southern Iraq, the 101st Airborne Division was forced to halt its march north because attack aircraft couldn't see through the sand well enough to land at a pair of new forward fueling stations.

"It's very frustrating," said Lt. Col. Laura Richardson, a Black Hawk helicopter pilot and commander of the division's 5th Battalion, said as sandstorms gave way to downpours. "These things can come in so fast."

A severe sandstorm swept across Karbala "a stop on the road north to Baghdad" forcing most of the soldiers to take refuge inside their Bradley fighting vehicles. A few men fought the gusts and the sand wearing goggles, helmets and scarves wrapped around their faces in the 50 mph winds, scrambling to maintain their sandblasted vehicles for a march on Baghdad.

The weather also dealt a blow to relief efforts; thunderstorms lashed the Iraqi port of Umm Qasr, slowing efforts to get the captured, badly damaged port open to ships laden with water, medicine and other provisions.

A British vessel carrying 1.5 million bottles of water was waiting to anchor, while naval helicopters ferried smaller amounts of supplies. Relief groups fear a growing humanitarian crisis in Iraq because of water shortages and damage to sewage treatment plants, raising the prospect of widespread disease.

"It's vital we get the port open as soon as possible to get the aid flowing to the people who need it," said British Navy Lt. Col. Paul Ash.

The sandstorms affected operations at sea, disrupting combat flights Tuesday from two aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean. A dozen aircraft that took off from the USS Harry Truman returned a few hours later without reaching targets in northern Iraq. On the USS Theodore Roosevelt, war planes stayed put.

"Weather sometimes does slow things down, and in other cases provides cover and accelerates some things," said Rear Adm. John Stufflebeem, aboard the Truman.

Abrams said the sandstorm can indeed provide cover and allow troops to reposition themselves while moving in closer formation. U.S.-led troops were fairly dispersed to minimize the impact of an Iraqi chemical or biological weapon, he said.

Abrams commanded the 1996 NATO deployment to Bosnia, where fog kept aircraft from landing for six days. Yet that highly publicized delay worked as a distraction while the force quickly built a bridge across the Sava River to Bosnia — a span bigger than the Brooklyn Bridge — and unexpectedly secured the region with ground forces.

Tuesday's sandstorm posed a serious test for the trend to reconfigure the military to wage war with quickness, agility and minimal ground troops.

The dust likely interfered with infrared, laser and audio tracking of targets and the invasion force's own troops, sharply increasing the chances of friendly fire casualties, Abrams said.

Thermal sensors can detect heat through dust, but optical sensors cannot, he said, which means the military would probably have to double its human reconnaissance to minimize confusion and uncertainty. Commanders also have to move closer to the front of their units to get a better grasp on a situation, he said.

"It really slows the tempo of your operations down," he said. "It impacts on movement rates. It impacts on some of the technology, the weapons, whether artillery or machine guns. An engine that may take two or three hours to repair would take maybe a day to repair."

Storms were so heavy in Baghdad that it appeared darkness had fallen. Iraq often sees sandstorms in spring, but Tuesday's was exceptional, bringing dust and sand from as far away as Egypt and Libya, said AccuWeather meteorologist John Gresiak. Lighter winds were likely Wednesday, with no major sandstorms for at least several days.

"Now, when the weather clears, I think you'll see a return to a very rapid movement north," said Col. Michael Linnington, commander of the 101st's 3rd Brigade. "I think everybody knows the reason we're not attacking is we don't have the weather to fly."

A few notes... the Weather Channel graphics are updated at the source, so they'll change from day to day, even though the image source is the same.

Another thought... Seems to me that this thread could also be used to post any weather related article, and also any Iraq maps at all, especially those showing troop movements. Feel free to slap them up here.

Regards,

Thanks, Mo. That was the storm apparently named "Jeremiah," by international weather services. Still trying to get a confirmation on that.


I think I need to find a graphic clock that will give Baghdad time on this thread.

The high building behind the low will push the system over quickly. Unfortunately that also means wind but it should dissipate quickly. Right now it's snowing in Jordan and that means it will be wet in the desert.

Something we can operate in and our all-weather aircraft have planned for.

We're fighting a bad redtide in Florida right now. Symptomatic of a strong rotation in the Atlantic high.

Westerlies will calm down soon and the fleet will feel it first followed by the elements in the west of Baqhdad.

The RG will be the last to see the sky. Not good for them.

FYI
12:06 AM | NYT will report captives were executed
CNN - aaron brown is saying the NYT tomorrow will have a report that some of the POWs were summarily executed, probably publicly.

"When this word gets out, it's hard to control the troops." Gen. Wesley Clark.

Brown said the story will change things. "People will be outraged."

Being a meteorologist, I've been quite interested in this storm indeed. It is quite intense indeed, showing a nice wrapped-up occluded structure on satellite, which also means it should start to weaken soon and probably already has. Too bad that weather information from that part of the world isn't very comprehensive or easily available. I did find a web site of interest from the OWS (Operational Weather Squadron) of the U.S. military:

http://ows.public.sembach.af.mil/wxcharts/wxcharts.htm

These show some synoptic weather charts and forecasts over Europe, but you can see the Iraq storm in the lower right hand corner. The U.S. military has a lot of weather support out there (in fact Iraq probably never has had as good of a observational network as it does now). It would be certainly interesting if and when the military declassifies their weather observations in the future, to go back and run some numerical models with that data to analyze the structure and evolution of this storm (probably will be fuel for several Masters Theses for military meteorologists at the very least).

Here is an article in Forbes that talks about the OWS's role in this war:

Hope this is of some interest

Very much so, thanks. I've got a question I've been trying to answer. Last week I heard an Israeli, who is a regular guest on the Hugh Hewitt Show, say that this storm had been randomly desgnated "Jeremiah," by whatever international weather services are responsible for that type of thing. Do you know where I might confirm or refute that?

Great link there! I've used the PSU E-wall page in the past, but I didn't know they were doing Iraq coverage. There are also operational model forecasts linked on that page. The UKMET, AVN, and CMC models (initialized 0000 UTC last night, so about 30 hours ago) all show a very nice upper-level low in the eastern Mediterranean, which moves east and begins to weaken rapidly once it moves over Iraq (right about now). Just for a little background, the UKMET is the United Kingdom's operational global weather forecast model, the AVN is the U.S's and the CMC is Canada's.

Here's a link to the AVN loop:

http://www.meteo.psu.edu/rtwx/ewall/MEAVN_0z/avnloop.html

Without getting into too much detail, the upper-left panel shows some atmospheric variables at the 500 mb level (about midway up through the troposphere). The big bulls-eye is a major low-pressure system. The upper-right panel shows the surface pressure fields. One can see the storm move rapidly off to the east and weaken in the loop, followed by much quieter and drier weather.

Sorry, I've heard this "Jeremiah" report second-hand through this forum as well, but I haven't followed up on that. I do know that storm systems like this are not given names on any kind of a regular basis. The only storms that are officially given names are tropical cyclones (hurricanes, typhoons, etc.). So, whoever named this storm "Jeremiah" was either doing so tounge-in-cheek, or as a way of informally marking this storm as significant due to its current context. However, I will look into this and let you know what I find.

I think I'm probably the original source for that, though I've been careful to say it's unconfirmed. The report that I heard on the radio said that the name was randomly selected by computer, but who knows?

Thanks for the link. Yes, it will be good thing to get weather info from Iraq. Meteorology is one of the true global sciences: without weather obs from every part of the globe, forecasts that rely on this data will be crippled, both globally and locally, depending on the size of the nation that won't share its weather information. Thus it is imperative that we have international cooperation on sharing weather obs, and this has indeed been the case for decades, and hopefully that never changes. Heck, even France shares its weather obs with us.

In an Ominous Sky, a City Divines Its Fate

< -snip- >

During six days of war, Baghdadis looking to the heavens for omens have had much to contemplate. A terrifying cascade of U.S. bombs has been followed by the apocalyptic smoke of oil fires lit by Iraqi forces, so dense that cars almost collided. The smoke was joined by today's storm, which abruptly ended Baghdad's struggle to reclaim ordinary life. Shops again were shuttered and streets were deserted as a sickly yellow cloaked the sun.

Weary residents spoke of divine intervention, and in the storm they saw God's determination to aid Iraq. But beneath the surface were churning impulses -- of fear and flight, of fatalism and bravado, of grief and dread. With few exceptions, Iraqis still consider political discussions taboo, especially with a foreign journalist shadowed by an official escort. But the storm seemed to draw out anxieties about a future that no one seems willing to predict.

Troops may add to storm in desert
Elizabeth Shogren, Los Angeles Times
Published March 26, 2003
SAND26

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The blinding sandstorms that slowed U.S. troop movements in Iraq on Tuesday may be at least partially the soldiers' own making, according to scientists familiar with desert conditions.

"There have been dust storms there since time immemorial," said Farouk El-Baz, a desert geologist who studied the effect of the 1991 Persian Gulf War on the Kuwaiti desert. "It is bad without the military, but military activities exacerbate it."

The dust and sandstorms, which are an unavoidable part of life in the Iraqi desert, are a consequence of destruction over the centuries of a top layer of pebbles, known as desert pavement. The surface is nature's way of preventing erosion and keeping the fine particles of sand and soil in place.

"Every time you remove some of this pavement for any reason, even for innocent things like agriculture, new dust storms and sand dunes are created," El-Baz said.
