    Wantagh meso up to 2.16” since this was reported. Great info, baring a very dry end to the year it looks like we crack the top 10.

    That’s where the cheap or undelveloped land was located for reason. Things look to be calming down now in the city. SWCT must have some serious flooding now with a large area 5”+
  3. I’ll second this one

    1” just from one shower in wantagh. Pretty impressive rates

    Even better, try to drive through in a low vehicle. Definitely one of the advantages of driving a truck. But I also know the water depth I’m driving through in my neighborhood. (Coastal flooding prone) dumping again on the uws.

    There’s a very strange area of precip forming on radar down over ocean county heading north. Anyone have any idea what that is?

    Ripping (rain) on the uws right now. Starting to get some ponding on campus. Surprised there is no advisory or warning for Manhattan

    Fall Foliage 2018

    That’s the queens giant, and it’s the oldest and largest living tree in NYC. That tree is incredible and has a huge hollow in the middle you can go into. That whole grove is spectacular. There are several other massive tulips and one red oak that I would think is the biggest of its species in NYC. I didn’t know you grew up in the Bayside area.

    Fall Foliage 2018

    I’ve storms are very rare on the south shore. The last time we had over .25” accretion was back in January 94. I did loose a 12” diameter branch during the middle nor’easter last March with 6” of wet snow. Tulip is generally the tallest and longest lived tree in this area. There is a grove of (I assume) old growth tulips in my town. 5 trees 100’+ tall and several feet in diameter. I assume they are old growth because they have very furrowed bark and large missing limbs that have completely grown over. As big and majestic as they are they have nothing on this one random cottonwood. I’ll have to take a pic to post here. It’s more then double the height of the surrounding forest and is visible for miles

    Basically follows the 2,000’ contour. It would be early but not unheard of in the Adirondacks, greens and whites. .50” so far in wantagh. Looks like from here out most of the precip is north and west which follows some of the modeling

    Out here on the island it was during the storm earlier this month. I will agree it was pretty windy in the city earlier today

    Wow, sad I just saw this!! I have an enormous silver maple in my back yard. It’s currently 14’ in circumference. It’s survived major nor’easters and several hurricanes here on the south shore of Long Island. The key to its survival (it was lifting up sections of my lawn during sandy) is cabling and pruning. Every 5 years or so it’s climbed and pruned. As big as my tree is, by far the biggest tree I have found on the south shore is a cottonwood. Its easily over 100’ tall and 25’ in diameter. I have to get over and officially measure it. Here’s a pic of my silver maple

    Steady light rain currently in wantagh despite zero rain forecast and not much on the radar.

    Wow, happy amx is back. Today was the quintessential early fall day! Should be an interesting week in the Atlantic.

    Hurricane Florence Catch all Thread

    Of the tropical cyclones I have experienced and actually remember that one was definitely no big deal. A few branches down here and there. Bob and Floyd were much more impactful on the island despite similar reported wind speeds (Nassau county). Both of those where pretty tame compared to Irene obviously which had pretty much the same type of damage from wind and surge as Gloria. And then sandy of course was a whole level of magnitude greater.
