Pretty good downpour here with a bit of thunder. Great to hear rain on my roof again!

Wow, thanks for linking those stories BW.  I knew those cells looked intense and slow moving.  Lots of runoff and low lying spots in that city too.  A bad combination.

Looks like central/eastern New York really made out with the rain. Got some rain this morning here but nothing compared to what they got. The eastern seaboard from the Carolinas up north through Maine have had incredible rainfall amounts the last month. 20-30" in some spots.

Radar has been impressive in and around Rochester for the last few hours.  Looks like some 4"+ amounts possible.

Walking along the waterfront over the weekend I noticed Lake Erie is running well below normal water level wise. Any good websites to check that data?

Lake Erie is actually 19 inches above normal. What did you see that made you think it was so far below?

I was just downtown and the water level seemed so low compared to normal. I saw rocks uncovered along the beach there that I've never seen. Thanks for the link, quite surprised at the data.

Wind Direction! Not sure which day you are referring to but both Saturday and Sunday had a fairly constant and very unusual NE wind flow which would certainly lower the lake level on our end!
