  • Description:
    "Using the local Weather Forecast Office (WFO) Binghamton BUFKIT model sounding archive, North American Mesoscale Model (NAM) and step mountain eta coordinate model (ETA), proximity soundings were analyzed using data interpolated to the forecast point closest to the initial report of flooding. Several variables were investigated to help establish values characteristic of each flash flood type. Results indicate Synoptic flash flood-producing environments were most common, however these events were associated with the widest range of parameter values examined in this study. Meanwhile, events with weak large scale forcing such as Meso High and Frontal flash flood scenarios were less common and were accompanied by a smaller range of parameter values prior to flood occurrence. Furthermore, results of this study suggest that some of the thresholds for the Binghamton area may be different than thresholds determined in previous studies for other parts of the country"--Abstract.
