  1. Even with 75 degree dews yesterday, I think I heard 1 clap of thunder and ended up with 0.15" of rain with little bit of wind. I feel like this area misses the storms, every time... this picture pretty much sums up yesterday...
  2. The rainfall is impressive, 0.75" in the first storm in like 20 minutes. This second storm has a us over an inch already.
  3. Zoomed up from that same cell....this was just before we got hit and I couldn't see any further than 100 ft.
  4. This is a picture of that cell near Waterbury
  5. 48.1 on the Davis this morning, house was down to 61 brrrr.... July 1st is this Saturday, right?
  6. Getting quite dark out there at the moment....wonder if this thing fizzles before it gets here though. They tend to do so coming from that direction.
  7. A bit worried about tonight...for some reason the strawberries are in full flower, with 10% having small berries already. Frost would not be good, but a freeze would be pretty sucky.
  8. 33.0 this morning, definitely some frost too....
  9. Snow line is pushing south with each run....might get to see my last flakes for the year. I have basketball at 7 am, so might be perfect timing
  10. I'm here too, but nothing too exciting for this area. I have watched my temperature drop from 37.3 to 36.4 in the last hour, but that only makes the rain colder. I do expect some sleet to enter the area overnight. I'm off to the Keys in 6 days, so I think I have checked out for this winter.
  11. Just looking at the change on the tropical tidbits snowfall map for CT, which is a lot of sleet I would assume. 12z did not have much accumulation, 18z has a ton, reminds me of the storm back in February I think?
  12. I leave for the Keys in 2 weeks, hopefully when I get back Spring has made its final push down this way. I definitely do not want to come back to 40 and rain. Hopefully the transition is quicker this year.
  13. I like the 1.3" of freezing rain that it is printing out here....is that even a possibility for this time of year? Obviously overnight, but I would assume it would not freeze during the day.
  14. I like this one better....NAM 2.0 now?
  15. I think I ended up with around 13, I was around 10.5 before the last heavy burst moved through, which had a ton of wind. Measured right after the sleet started and still had 10.5. It has settled to about 11 this morning...
