Excessive Rainfall and Thunderstorm Event

Recommended Posts

Pouring. Again. Today might be the event that makes me finally get my own weather station. Wantagh mesonet and Farmingdale Airport are usually close enough that they give me a pretty good estimate of weather events. Not today. I’ve never seen it pour so many times like this in a single day.  So localized too.

radar estimates 2" around you.   3" around me and 4" around Bellmore.  I'm  not home so i have no idea.

There's a decent east wind this morning, I didn't anticipate. Point and click offering another 1.25" out this way; nothing so far.

The radar presentation in PA is impressive. A fire hose of heavy rain right up the Susquehanna valley.

The radar is filling in along the coast and Southern NJ.

Just a crazy pattern this week.   Modeling all of the place for today-RGEM and EURO the wettest, Euro has 6 inches over N NJ by tonight

The slug working its way up the NJ coast and into NYC should gradually spread into most of NJ before pivoting Northeast late tonight.

PA can keep that much rain.

I wonder what local seasonal/annual records may be broken for them this year.

This has to be the wettest period locally since August 2011, and even for as wet as it's been, we've still managed to miss a majority of the heaviest rains.

If that comes to fruition...look out. The Passaic is up in Pine Brook, minor flooding occurring.

Pretty classic setup for excessive rainfall with the closed ULL over E PA. The low should slowly open and shift Northeastward over the next two days. Before that, we should continue to get waives of precip running in off the ocean.

Looks like a squall line is developing from what's left of this mornings coastal convection in Eastern Monmouth, extending Eastward out into the ocean several hundred miles with more storms firing North of that about to rotate into LI, the sound and CT. Meanwhile the rainfall rates seem to be diminishing some as the bands rotate into Northern NJ. The heaviest will likely be wherever the pivot ends up occuring.

Heavy rain here in Fort Lauderdale too and flight home is delayed. Long day incoming

Been there, done that. You might have a window later this afternoon but it's not looking great. I find that traveling too and from Florida, it's best to have the first flight. After that, they're all a crap shoot this time of the year.

Yea I’m not a morning person so I get later flights. Starting raining early today at 9:30 which isn’t normal, every other day rain started after 2
