    I'm at 0.67" for the month. Hoping for a quick soaking in Warren County, anything at this point. 

    This is a big time lightning producer currently.  My Tempest has detected over 560 strokes in the past 40 minutes.  We’ll see how long it continues in this pulse up mode.

    I’ve had 0.25” of rain so far this month. I would take it. 

    I am at 0.74” for the month.  Maybe I make it over an inch with this for the month.  Models kill it not long after it passes the Delaware.

    pretty rare to see storms fall apart like that well before the close of daytime heating 

    These storms were the product of orographic lift over the hills of eastern PA and the remnants of a weak frontal boundary.  Once they moved closer to the coast they dissipated.  The lack of any significant seabreeze frontal boundaries probably hastened the process.

    Ended up being not too impressive. Looked great on radar as it was heading into western NJ, but it really weakened. Mostly light to moderate rain, but I did get a very narrow line of heavy rain. It poured for about 3 minutes. I ended up getting 0.42" tonight. 

    The HRRR deserves to be criticized for not picking up on the activity until the last minute, but the 3km NAM was much worse. I mean the 18z run had some areas getting 6 to 9 inches of rain, LOL. That model was totally off its rocker. The HRRR was bad, but the 3km NAM was INSANE with the amounts it was predicting.

    Anyway it worked out ok here. The rain held off until almost 10 so I was able to get all the fireworks in, and then the garden got a decent soaking. Glad I won't have to water tomorrow. 

    We got rained out for our fireworks.  Received 0.42”

    This makes much more sense.  No way did the Island of Grenada record a gust that high 30 miles or so south of the center.

    Maurice Bishop Airport is located on the far SW side of Grenada (Google Earth) FWIW it does have direct somewhat elevated exposure to the W and NW which would put it in a good position to measure higher winds.  In any case it would still be too far away to measure a gust of 121 mph.

    i like this area at the moment


    The SW end of that Bow echo over Warren Cty just passed me by to north and east.  It’s definitely filling in back to SW.  It was a sight to see with the boiling clouds flying by directly overhead with the developing outflow boundary.

    Looks good for areas along and north of 78

    This feature is dropping down and filling in as I type this.  These cells are moving quickly so it looks no one area will be feeling impacts for any significant period of time.  

  8. This is what the leading edge of that bow echo looks like as of a few minutes ago at exit 40 on I78.  The traffic cam was shaking like crazy.  It’s like a wall of rain.

    Nice bow echo along 78 with 70 mph winds

    This feature is coming straight at me.  We’ll see if it outdoes the one from a couple of days ago.
