  1. Snow in Western PA. Vortmax is moving East in a hurry. Sunny here for the moment and beatiful.
  2. This rain in Delaware is like snow virga, what's the deal. Ugh
  3. Here I am still amazed by the record 26 mile tornado on the ground that traveled through Delaware last summer. The tree damage was extensive and in certain areas extreme.
  4. We are due for a derecho A derecho is a complex of intense thunderstorms that unleashes damaging winds over an area extending hundreds of miles. This extreme weather event is sometimes called an "inland hurricane" due to the hurricane-force wind gusts and the way that it appears on radar. “We are still very nervous about the possibility of derechos developing based on the pattern that we’re forecasting" beginning in early June, Pastelok said. On Aug. 10, 2020, a particularly strong derecho blasted across Iowa with winds greater than 100 mph. The storms leveled entire fields of crops and caused billions of dollars in damages.
  5. Late summer heat to build in Northeast after stormy start The stifling heat of summer may not take hold right away from the Interstate 95 corridor to the shores of the Great Lakes, but that doesn’t mean that air conditioners will be able to take it easy this year. The first part of the summer will feature frequent thunderstorms across the Northeast, Ohio Valley and Midwest, limiting the potential for long-duration heat waves with temperatures averaging right around normal. AccuWeather’s long-range forecasters believe that several rounds of stronger storms could sweep across the region, particularly in June and July, in addition to garden variety summer storms that pop up on warm and humid afternoons.
  6. Hottest weather later this year , interesting.
  7. Another bust , two in a row. no rain at all. Good for you , at least you got some.
  8. Thinking another bust rainfall forecast coming up? Amounts coming down , and radar looks pathetic. Talk of excessive rains have slowly evolved to .25 inches , if we are lucky. I don't need or want a flood but some rain for the flowers would be nice.
  9. Maybe will get some rain, meanwhile, a special marine warning for the upper Bay has been issued.

  10. Yeah, dissapointing so far. Is it going to be a busted forecast around my parts? Mount Holly says 80 % chance of rain .5 to .75 inches. Thats more than showers. Radar looks like a bust coming up, but we will see. . Showers and possibly a thunderstorm before 1am, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly between 1am and 2am. Patchy fog after 4am. Low around 64. South wind around 5 mph becoming southwest after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
  11. Yep, we do wind rather well in these parts, and this event has the potential to be a memorable one, due to the long duration as mentioned in the AFD and the peak gusts. Only savings grace is that the ground is not saturated for once.
  12. You sure? Ask Mulder, you might be surprised
  13. Even now it does not look good for a mostly sunny day. Sector Images_ Northeast - NOAA _ NESDIS _ STAR.html
  14. High Wind event possibly on the way - National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 513 AM EDT Wed Apr 28 2021 In the wake of the front, a secondary vorticity lobe (stronger than previously expected) is forecast to dive quickly south across the region. This will be accompanied by a low-level surge in cold air advection as the surface pressure gradient continues to tighten behind the departing and intensifying low. West to northwesterly winds will increase substantially as a result, especially into the evening hours, as mid-level height falls and cold advection will support efficient mixing to the 850-900 mb levels. Models indicate winds speeds in these levels during this time increasing to 40-45+ kts. Expect sustained winds of 20-25 mph with gusts of 30-40 mph by the afternoon hours, with gusts potentially increasing to the 45-50+ mph range during the evening hours. At this point, a Wind Advisory seems probable for at least some if not most of the area, but given the major shift in the forecast, confidence is not particularly high on the details of this strong wind threat at this time. We will continue to monitor this threat.
  15. And the sun is where?
