A miller b is a storm where the low pressure center transfers. Most of the time they are either clippers or apps runners that get stuck by cold high pressure and what was the primary low spawns a new surface low to its east.

From the WPC:
Quote
When specific thresholds in the mass fields are met, convective scheme is triggered and then dumps a large amount of QPF over a grid point - releasing so much latent heat over the grid point that the model is forced to adjust the mass fields by producing a local vertical motion max in the mid troposphere (~ 500mb), a corresponding upper level jet max over the vertical motion max - an intense and small scale vort max in the mid levels (MCV).
The model scales up the mesoscale circulation at mid levels and holds onto it as a real feature for as long as 3 days.

The model can produce precipitation in association with the feature as it tracks along in the flow.

Basically, the model "sees" something that's not there and dumps qpf in response.

With the Pacific moisture flowing in the west will that limit the movement in the noth pole of the bitter cold?   Will it shove the bitter cold to another part of the globe? Lastly how was spring 1986 in general.  Thank your

Honestly, I have no idea on either counts, sorry.  I was only 9 in '86...I have no idea how it was.  Maybe some of our climatology folks can chime in.  That's not my bag.

Spring 1986 was not above or below normal. I recall it as average. i was 22 that year. We had a very warm April and May I recall.

Back when I was in NJ Miller B's where the systems that constantly screwed us over with snow fall, or better siad, lack there of.        ::doh::
