Storm north of philly might be the tristates only chance at something

HRRR looks to have been too far south-RGEM was better with its northern solution.

That cell should move right over Southern Bergen and then Westchester. My Wife is driving in it, said its producing torrential rain.

Saw the clouds from the storm that passed by Route 78 from the field in town.  Really beautiful looking with the sun setting at the same time.

Torrential rain for about 10 minutes with some less than pea sized hail mixed in. No wind to speak of. Lots of lightning but no CG strikes it seemed.

Driving on 287 there was just some nasty hail near Suffern.  It was close to golf ball size 

Wow, had some brief hail here in Mahwah but couldn't see the size. Could hear it pinging off my windows.

The pics coming out of southern dutchess are impressive IMG_3694.JPG.eca2d8af72902afa447e4e725e79a216.JPG

The first pic shows great structure - classic placement of a funnel at the top of the RFD clear slot.

This was the pattern posters were hoping for all winter. It just came a few months late. ;)

I posted this in the interior thread, but wanted to include it here in case anyone missed it. Had a great view of the Dutchess supercell yesterday. Here's one video, there are several more (and pictures) if you look at my twitter feed. There's a video on CBS that looks like there may have been a brief touch down near Maloney Road in Poughkeepsie. NWS will be looking in the area today. There was a lot of hail associated with this storm as well. Mostly quarter sized, but I heard from a couple friends that mentioned there was some up to golf ball sized mixed in.

Well of course, I haven't spent much time out West and have only ever flown over that area.

I asked my buddy in Denver. It was June 1999.

We were 35 miles east of Denver.

Heading out to Denver in 7 days.......then out to Steamboat Spring high country for fishing.

It hails all the time out there...but this storm was unique.
