I'll try and keep this simple. Sometimes a weather system (low pressure) will stay stationary for as long as 24 hours, sometimes longer. It all
depends on where the steering winds from the jetstream happen to be at the time. I've seen some that lasted for three days.
From the satellite photos. it looks like just a rather deep low pressure system, a "cut off low". By cut off, it is a low pressure system that has
moved out of the mainstream airflow and just cannot move along a normal path. Over a period of time, the winds aloft finally get it moving again along
the normal west to east flow. from the satellite photos it look like that one didn't even last 24 hours. Looks perfectly normal to me.
We get those here in the Southwest perhaps 4 or 5 times a year mainly in the fall, winter and early spring, but they can occur anytime of year and
anywhere in the world for that matter. Usually they move out within 24 to 72 hours. No big deal other than maybe some unpleasant weather.
Methinks someone there need a new tin foil hat, and you can quote me on that one.
I left something out. OOPS! Look at the satelite photo of 12 PM April 19, 2008. Note the comma shape at the bottom of the cloud formation. Looks
like a typical cold frontal system to me that has stalled due to the cut off low. it's a perfectly natural system and no man made anything.
o.k. my dad is 40 years retired meterologist, so I sent him some of the site, and thats what he told me, (I copied and pasted what he sent me after
looking at the pictures.)I just thought since you were looking for other opinions from professionals I would ask him. Personally I think the weather
is tampered with, but I am into conspiracy stuff, that's why I am at the above top secret forum. Just thought I would include his opinion, right or
