Just got a tornado warning alert on my phone, but I think it's for the storm up in Berks.

 

Edit: I looks like it's actually for the storm just to my east, near Coatesville. Time to head to the basement...

Those are some wild storms.  Hope everyone is doing alright with the hail.  Looks like they're are starting to line out.

Once again, we got nothing!  0.11" of rain and a 9 mph wind gust (doesn't even count! lol). 

Heh yup.  Got 0.13" on top of the 0.12" that I had earlier this morning (0.25" for the day so far).  It got windy and there was some thunder but didn't see any lightning. The cells were pretty fast moving.  Currently 69 and overcast.

Heading back into heavy rain on 55 near Woodbury as I head for a job in Millville tonight.  Didnt get much back home aside from some rain and thunder.  The stronger stuffed passed just 5-10 miles to my southwest.  

Edit: just as I posted that lightning struck a tall utility pole off the side of the highway just in front of us.  It was really bright, I was looking right at it so I feel blinded now.  Theres alot of cloud to cloud lightning as well.  Looks impressive on radar.

That was pretty decent little storm that just popped up in Gloucester County.  Very heavy rain and couple pings of small hail.  Lightning was good.

Lucky strike on the cell phone.  Was trying to get a pic of the updraft and caught lightning striking out of it instead.
