heard the first rumble here in pottstown

Yeah there are a couple cells moving through.  Had a heavier shower sideswipe me (currently have up to 0.06") but haven't heard any thunder yet.  The temp managed to get up to 85 here before it really clouded up and dropped back down into the upper 70s before it started raining.  Currently 75 with the light rain.

Had some moderate rain come through and now the temp's down to 73°F. Today's weather (at least IMBY) doesn't appear to be nearly as violent as yesterday or Tuesday, thankfully.

Looking southwest from shoemakersville.  Rain clearing out to the south and east.  Hoping it's all done for the drive back as the drive up here this evening was brutal.

Getting a heavier piece of a line over me right now.  Temp is 70 and currently up to 0.15" for the day so far at post time.

Got a piece of that line earlier. Some circulation but not quite as tornadic as rounds 1 & 2.

It looked worse on radar than what actually happened.  It basically gave me about 15 minutes of a shower to yield 0.04" on top of the 0.02" I got from a previous shower, so that 0.15" total is it for the day (unless I get some more overnight). Seems the heavier segments were running north of me or south of me by several miles either way (I had seen that it was flooding again along the river drives earlier this evening from the cell that gave me 0.09").

I thought the visible cloud cover looked more fearsome than what the actual storm was, probably why it looked worse on radar too. Is it possible to have a virga tornado?

The dewpoints are in the upper 60s around here - pretty much near the surface temps so it could be there's just a lot of low clouds cluttering up the radar and the actual cells are very small and localized.  I did get a couple more hundredths of an inch since my last post so am up to 0.17" with some light rain with temp of 68.

NJ - second half of May most showers north and south and i'm not complaining it's a relief

 

 

Most of the soils in Monmouth county are fairly sandy and well drained which is a benefit. Soil here is much heavier and hasn't really dried out since 2017.

I used to live in Neptune during my teen years and still fish on a party boat out of Belmar.

Weird storm line coming through. Coatesville was surrounded in angry red radar returns while remaining completely calm as the storm passed. It was almost like we were under a bubble.
