The storm slowly crawling out of the Rockies is quite impressive an devastating, but it seems to have a rather non-standard development time and intensity. It never really winds up, yet has amazing baroclinicity, strong upper levels winds, ample moisture, etc. And even when the upper level support and the surface front encounter the Eastern seaboard, it never experiences much rapid growth. It is fascinating to watch storms evolve and grow through positive feedback, but this storms seems to be a bit of an anomaly. Just wondering if anyone would care to discuss some of this storms interesting characteristic's. It probably is on the order of a 10-20 year event (maybe I'm exaggerating).
