The sky looked ominous just before it went through here - the wind picked up a bit - it was promising, but when all was said and done fairly meh...

Not a lot of lightning, not a lot of downpour, no hail, not a whole lot of wind either...

Shelf cloud just went over Somers.  No lightning so far.  No rain so far either.  The wind is gusting to about 25 mph.

Self-propagating. You can also see the split where the southern stuff robbed Peter to pay Paul :/

Well didn’t get to see the shelf cloud I truly wanted but oh well. Sky looked cool, saw a flash of lightning, and winds gusted maybe 30-35? I think I need to by myself a handheld anemometer...but I need more hands. Trying to hold a camera in one hand and a phone in the other...how can I measure the wind :lol:

You need a third hand to hold the weenie too. How will you manage...

It may pick up east of here but that line looked great until it hit the hills in western Schenectady county.  10 miles later we got a few breezes and maybe a quarter inch of rain.  Pffffthhh.
