  1. That guide actually came out in late 2013. Maybe some WFOs disseminated and adopted more strictly than others.
  2. You're doing it perfectly right. This is the same that we advocate in CoCoRaHS (I coordinate the NJ program). And yes, also doubling for posting here.
  3. I'd just add that this page is a bit outdated, since it allows for 6-hourly board clearings. Current NWS guidelines have removed that option, unless specifically requested from your local WFO (e.g., airport stations). See pages 6-9 here:
  4. 50 mph. All, you can monitor those here (note: problem with maps displaying on Chrome; other browsers should work):
  5. 75 mph at Berkeley Twp, which I think is co-located with the Toms River AWOS at Miller Air Park. So they definitely corroborate each other.
  6. Can confirm. I was the 2.76" CoCoRaHS in Somerset. 10.31" for the month.
  7. Absolutely slammed here. Picked up about 2.30" in 45 mins, and 2.60" in an hour. Pretty intense winds (would estimate at least 40-50 mph gusts) that continued for a while. Max rain rate on my Davis of 14.05"/hour, which I think is by far the highest I've ever seen. Definitely an upper-echelon storm among those I've experienced in my 39 years.
  8. Got around 1.10" from last night's storms, and 1.33" for the day. 7.43" over the past 18 days. But couldn't buy a raindrop for the 30 days prior (0.35"). Summer rainfall is so fickle.
  9. Not sure. Works for me. Can try this too:
  10. I took a loop centered on my location, but close enough to you to see much of it.
  11. Soon to be 7 of 11.
  12. 1.54" from this evening's storms. Sub-severe imby, but a short period of gusty winds of maybe 35 mph. Very satisfying.
  13. Not sure what's up with the Met department page, but we're still bringing in the data through our NJWxNet site. So you should be able to find what you need here!
  14. Still at just 1.10" this evening? There's a bunch of gauges in the NJWxNet up your way with 2"+, and I definitely don't doubt what you measured in the plastic 4" gauge (I coordinate the program out of Rutgers; those gauges are top notch). The 2.52" is at High Point (not all the way up, but 1388'), and the 2.12" is our brand new station at the top of the main lift at Mountain Creek (~1394'), which I believe is pretty close to your location? Both are quite similar in elevation to yours, so doesn't seem to be a topographic thing. I'm really surprised by the difference and curious to see what other reports in the area show tomorrow.
