E PA/NJ/DE Spring 2019 OBS Thread

Recommended Posts

This latest line dumped 0.15" of rain as it came through. Had some thunder with it but nothing really severe and little wind.  Up to 0.27" for the day so far.  Hit a high of 75 earlier today and currently 70 with some light rain.

Weak thundershower this morning and another this evening. My running tally is probably 200 thundershowers, 3 strong storms and 0 severe the last decade.

Had some very heavy rain and decent thunder/lightning when the storm moved thru earlier.

Picked up 0.34" of rain from that storm. Total rainfall so far today 0.83

Under a warning here, might get clipped by the west side of it. Nice light show so far, about 10 miles away now.

Nice.  Looks to be heading right for me, so I'm gonna head out with the camera.  It's a bit more disorganized now.  Hopefully it holds together for a bit.

Seeing a few photo worthy multi-pronged bolts!

Kind of shrunk as it got close, a little rain and now some breezes, lightning pretty much stopped.

Yeah, I've captured a couple distant strikes, but it collapsed as usual.

Didn't two Southern NJ counties get tornado warnings last night?  Also that storm passed just 4 or 5 miles to my south along 76, I could hear it and got a bit of a drizzle.  All it did was make my cat want to come inside.

 

Edit: I think that was may 21/22nd with the tornado warnings, not sure it was an article I saw this morning, but only read the title of course!

There haven't been any tornado warnings.  There was a tornado in Delaware a while back, but that's about as close as any severe weather has gotten.

Sorry for the confusion, it was actually out of our region in northern Jersey that got the warning or watch, I believe on may 23rd.  I was half asleep when i saw the article and was thinking it was SNJ.  this isnt the article i saw, but close enough.   https://www.mcall.com/news/breaking/mc-nws--20190524-dvcg3ykhczfdzdpbt3ygqimsla-story.html

 

Also theres a real nice storm rolling through sea isle right now.  I'm sure half the island is underwater now seeing as it floods with a light drizzle.

Got up to 88 here yesterday and humid, but managed to skirt some of the heaviest cells that came through the area right when our bbq was concluding, only getting 0.05" (it clouded over in the afternoon and that seemed to keep the temps just under 90).  Much different day today, where it is currently partly cloudy, with dews down in the low 50s and temp of 80.

My humorous observation on the holiday is the soil has become bone dry , the weeks rain chances each dumped a trace or a tenth of an inch. One extreme or the other.
