Oh geez.  Let's hope that doesn't verify although I would think that "look" would be welcomed in winter around these parts. :lol:

Made it up to 81 here today after a cool low of 62.  Very different today than the past couple days by not having any overcast/marine influence issues.  Pretty much blue sky all day (with an occasional cloud here and there) and low humidity to boot, with dews in the low 50s.  Currently 77 and sunny.

Semptember looks to start mainly dry and boring here. No big synoptic set ups in the next 10 days.

If Dorian decides to come up the coast, you might see something. :lol:

As an obs, after a low of 60 this morning (thought it could have gone a bit lower here but didn't), am now up to 85 with dps that have slowly increased through the morning to the low 60s (after low 50s yesterday).  Still... there's been a perfectly blue sky so far today so it looks like a great start to the long Labor Day weekend.

I really hope after the turn the trend is more east, for all coastal areas benefit. Locally here, following the damage from the microburst event, without question, any extended period of wind would be bad in these parts as the soil remains saturated and the trees/poles have been already stressed and left in a dangerous state.

Still see the crews clearing out large branches left hanging by the thread. When you scan the woods there are hundreds of these and easy to spot with the dead leaves.

Holy crap that storm was no joke.  Extremely heavy rain and strong wind.  Gutter got knocked off the side of the house, whole yard is a river now.  

I took some video but I missed the gusts.  Just lots of flooding in the front and back yard running down the hill.  We have a storm drain on the upslope of our driveway, as well as a hump for water runoff.  Clearly neither worked well enough..

I think that when it gets up here it will probably zoom on out and not sit and spin - unless the timing gets messed up and it misses getting ingested into any troughs or fronts that would normally sweep it away to the NE.

I actually got fringed by the cluster of storms that have been coming through this morning - the heaviest going just a few miles to my north.  I did get 0.07" out of it (so far) and it's currently 72 (after a low of 68 and a high before the rain of 75).  Had a pretty nice day yesterday too with some breezes, a 64 low and 82 high.

1.08” of rain in Exton this morning. We only had 1.42” here in August. 

Wow.  You really got into a precip hole. I at least managed 4.39" for August and I know I was fringed or got missed by a bunch of storms.

.65 thus far and may I say all in brief but intense burst of rain. Instant washouts.

Thunder building near by again so I would expect more rain is coming.

Well I got shafted from the last line.  Got an additional 0.10" for a total of 0.17" for the day so far.  Managed to make it up to 84 before the rain and am currently overcast but clearing and a steamy 73 with dews now in the upper 60s.

first shower softened up the lawn, aerated prior to the second shower. Lawn says "thanks, I can breathe and drink again"

Nice timing!

.51" of rain yesterday. Had 4.7" in August total although half of that fell in one day. 2nd half of the month was pretty dry, only .8" from 8/16 - 8/31.

Overall nice late summer day yesterday with a high of 82 after a low of 66 here.  Today is supposed to be the warmest of the near/long term but I don't think I'll make it to 90 here today, especially if the overcast this morning manages to persist (at least in part) during the day. Currently mostly cloudy and 70 (where I actually had a low of 67 around 1:30 am and have been experiencing non-diurnal warming since).
