Wanted to add that Norman, OK had put in the Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 11 pm and the way these cells are building and back-building, that might verify!

Thanks for that!  Did Norman include any NJ counties? 

I'm in the Princeton/w Windsor area, and storms were passing by closely, but we got nary a drop.  Of course, I'm in Mercer County.  The NJ warning I saw did not have Mercer County, but the radar looked bad.  I seemed to be in that big doughnut hole, and then cells started collapsing on radar.  

BTW, I've had some rain in the past week.  Measured at least 2 inches, but the rain hits my deck broadside, so not sure how accurate that is.  

Thanks -

Looks like Mt. Holly picked up the Watch ball in the past hour now and does include the tristate area (ETA it looks like most of the convection has been backing to the west and south now) -

Thanks - that's a big help.  I'm probably located around where the "e" is in "Princeton" on that map. 

Mercer County is not on the list you provided with the Mt. Holly warning.  I did experience the outflow winds noted on radar earlier.  

Weather has become less boring of late. . .  :D

PS meant to say: map shows the influx of nice (to me) ocean air that cooled us off over here, storm or no storm.

Most active T-storm/downpours day I've seen in a while...round after round. Some stuff still floating down at this hour (11:15pm)...probably will dissipate but still.  70F / DP 66

That was a fascinating storm to watch develop last evening! Got down to 68°F by ~9pm and has stayed there pretty much all night. Hoping today won't be as oppressive--working outside in that heat is not fun for long imho.

I will second that emotion, strongly. Might not be as hot today, but the rest of the week is looking pretty humid. That's the worst part of it, for working outside.

Mt. Holly tweeted an animation of that excitement from yesterday -

 

Although it didn't get as hot here as yesterday (I just barely tapped 90 today), the dews were awful and it was pretty rough the brief times I was outside.  Currently 80, mostly cloudy and soupy.. and I saw some pop-ups that formed in Montco and Bucks within the past couple hours moving SW --> NE into Jersey.

A tropical storm is likely gonna landfall in the area in the next 48 hours and there’s radio silence in this sub, where is everyone lol? People are sleeping on Fayz

We're on it, lol. Wait until tomorrow and see what it looks like. Thinking maybe some heavy showers and a breeze here on Friday. Breaks things up a bit, could be interesting!

Actually made it up to 91 yesterday before it clouded over and stayed generally overcast much of the rest of the day.  After I had gone to bed, it looked like we had some lightning around here in the 10:30 pm timeframe but apparently no measurable precip.

Currently 73, mostly cloudy and steamy (yup, windows steamed up).

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY
EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of northern Delaware, northeast
  Maryland, New Jersey, and southeast Pennsylvania, including
  the following areas, in northern Delaware, New Castle. In
  northeast Maryland, Cecil. In New Jersey, Camden, Coastal
  Ocean, Eastern Monmouth, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer,
  Middlesex, Morris, Northwestern Burlington, Ocean, Salem,
  Somerset, Southeastern Burlington, Sussex, Warren, and Western
  Monmouth. In southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware, Eastern
  Chester, Eastern Montgomery, Lower Bucks, Philadelphia, Upper
  Bucks, Western Chester, and Western Montgomery.

* From late tonight through Friday evening

* Heavy rain associated with a coastal low is expected to start
  very late tonight and continue through the day on Friday.
  Widespread amounts of 1 to 2 inches are likely with locally
  higher amounts possible.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash
flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to
occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters
may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams
and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.

Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location
that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash
flood warning is issued for your area.

Currently 89 and partly cloudy and humid although it could be worse (dews only in the 60s).

I've been outside working in this heat for two weeks, and today it finally broke 90°F. However the strangest thing is that I think I've become acclimatized to it! Sure, you still sweat a lot, but I don't feel nearly as wiped out right now as I did after last Wednesday. Then again, my job isn't particularly strenuous and my company looks out for us by providing plenty of breaks, water, and shade to escape to. Sure feel sorry for the guys working on our apartment complex's roofs this week though... Looking forward to a 3-day weekend kicked off by our coastal!

The coastal is Tropical Storm Fay now!  Don't see one of these very often...

National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ  AL062020
517 PM EDT Thu Jul 9 2020

This product covers NEW JERSEY...DELAWARE...SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA AND NORTHEAST MARYLAND

**Tropical Storm Fay to Approach the New Jersey Coast**

NEW INFORMATION
---------------

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for Atlantic, Atlantic
      Coastal Cape May, Cape May, Coastal Atlantic, Coastal Ocean,
      Eastern Monmouth, Middlesex, Ocean, Southeastern Burlington,
      and Western Monmouth

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Atlantic, Atlantic
      Coastal Cape May, Cape May, Coastal Atlantic, Coastal Ocean,
      Eastern Monmouth, Middlesex, Ocean, Southeastern Burlington,
      and Western Monmouth

* STORM INFORMATION:
    - About 270 miles south of Atlantic City NJ or about 240 miles
      south of Cape May NJ
    - 35.5N 74.9W
    - Storm Intensity 45 mph
    - Movement North or 360 degrees at 7 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Heavy rain leading to flooding will be possible, especially
along and southeast of the Interstate 95 corridor due to Tropical
Storm Fay. Tropical Storm Fay is currently off the Outer Banks. It
is expected to progress north over our region through Friday. Heavy
rain is possible beginning very late tonight and continuing through
Friday evening. The threat for tropical storm winds over land is
very low except right along the New Jersey coast.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts along and southeast Interstate 95 corridor. Potential
impacts include:
    - Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become
      swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and bridge
      closures.

* TORNADOES:
Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
New Jersey... and southeastern Pennsylvania. Potential impacts
include:
    - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

* WIND:
Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
coastal New Jersey. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across the region, little to no impact is anticipated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. If you are in a flood-prone
area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded
roadway. Remember, turn around don`t drown!

Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.


* ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION:
- For information on appropriate preparations see ready.gov
- For information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.org
- For additional disaster preparedness information see redcross.org

NEXT UPDATE
-----------

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather
Service in Mount Holly NJ around 11 PM, or sooner if conditions
warrant.
