  1. Usually the storms at least make it to Newark before starting to fizzle out. What a disappointing season it has been so far. Have been on the wrong end of basically every storm, June 19 was the only time we even had a credible threat but even then the cell missed to the north.
  2. Looks like SI may get clipped. Here in Queens looks like we'll be lucky to get a sprinkle
  3. One disappointment after another this season. However, last year we didn't really see much until July 25 and after.
  4. WTF why is it weakening? It hasn't even hit the ocean yet. Maybe it will pulse back up, we certainly have the moisture in place.
  5. Apparently there was a fairly strong Tornado spawned by this MCS in upstate NY (check their page for some damage photos). This setup kind of reminds me of 07/18/97 where there was a long lived MCS that tracked mostly through PA and caused widespread damage and 60+ wind gusts in NYC metro area. We'll see if this thing holds up as well.
  6. What's the % chance any of that convection in North Jersey makes it into NYC/Queens area? .0000001%? As much as I love the ocean, the marine influence really sucks when it comes to getting any decent storms.
  7. Another shafting in Queens...barely a drizzle. This is getting old fast...
  8. WTF Queens has been in a hole in basically every storm event this season. Not a drop here in Kew Gardens
  9. This looks really cool and ominous coming in. Don't see any lightning though.
  10. Wish one of those cells would make it to Queens. We had a nice downpour this afternoon, some nice wind driven rain. No thunder or lightning though.
  11. So lame...line was bowing out and fizzled once it hit water. Maybe 25mph gust, two flashes of lightning and a 40 second downpour. Too early in season, water is still way too cold.
  12. Line of storms/showers racing through PA/NJ will it hold together?
  13. That cell just collapsed while hitting the city. Very disappointing.
  14. Hope the action in PA and NJ holds up into city. That cell that just popped up on northern CT looks nasty.
  15. A little disappointed here in souther Queens. First cell came through and looked incredibly ominous, saw an epic CG strike and was thinking this would be like 07/25/16 or maybe even 09/16/10. The cloud structures did look similar. However, cell scooted north at the last minute and only had a brief downpour. Had 2 more rounds but were just heavy rain, couple flashes of lightning and basically no wind to speak of. View from my building of first cell that slammed Jersey City and Northern Queens, but just missed me:
