11 days for a TS. Man if we get a cane here...good lord. 

Even a hurricane Bob like 100-150 miles west would be ridiculous.

Not weird... The pressure gradient was much more representative of a tropical system at that latitude. 

MTP is almost 90 miles east of FRG and never really got into the action, that plus pressure gradient and proximity to the center. Still so strange to me how windy it was where I am but with less than 0.25” rain. I’m about 5 miles north of FRG and my neighborhood was completely trashed. I could only imagine what would’ve been if it struck NC at 110-115mph instead of 85.

No. Latitude. It became extra tropical and phased right around NYC metro, hence also began tracking due north...That’s also why the wind impact broadened for our sub forum despite it tracking much further west.

MTP is like the same latitude as FRG

700K plus were out yikes

We have 100s of crews working across CT to restore power after Tropical Storm Isaias caused widespread, historic damage to the electric system.  As of 10 a.m., crews have restored power to more than 100,000 customers since the storm began and ~617,000 remain without power.

Bobs worst was around 5x worse than Isaias. I'd never trade that experience for this clunker

I was disappointed in Bob where I was in Brockton. I know why, but I thought Gloria was worse. Obviously different past Plymouth and the Cape.

All about the track.  Bob west east and Gloria was west

 Yeah, that NE curve as it passed BID saved I95. Will said 100+ miles but even 50 miles would have rocked around 10 million more people in the Boston and PVD metros

Always wonder what kind of damage Hazel did in NY, NJ and CT.  There was a 100mph + gust at battery park.  I can't find any descriptions of the damage without digging up archived local newspapers from the time.

Yep. I was stunned at the damage on the Cape when we went back there like two weeks later. Not to mention the trees left were all bare from the salt water spray. Really strange to see.

You know what...looks like we do have some CAA in the mlvls. The TCU's I've seen have that look and after what you just posted I decided to take a look. The core is to our north but not bad

Gloria was that way here,all south facing leaves burnt from salt. You literally could be on one side of a tree and see brown, other side green.  East sides of tropical systems here are always dry. I was western eyewall of Bob and had 6+ inches

Yeah I'm not even sure we had a shower from Gloria. Just a big wind bag.

Aerovane - 62 kts (71 mph)
ASOS - 51 kts (59 mph)
Davis - 57 kts (66 mph)
Merlin - 58 kts (67 mph)
RM Young - 61 kts (70 mph)

I vividly remember tops of railroad utility poles blowing down my street.  This is about a mile from the tracks in Teaneck,NJ.  As an almost 8 year old, it was awesome!

Agree. As I mentioned yesterday Bob was a cat 5 compared to Isaias in the Merrimack Valley area. Hell Isaiah Thomas  caused more damage in the MV area than Isaias...kidding .

Just goes to show how much track dependent these systems are. One town can get smoked with flooding while another gets little. One town can be decimated by wind and a few miles over it’s not too bad.

My neighborhood was hit pretty good. Trees down everywhere. I discovered more today. I think you can file these under the category Man Wind.

Still no power.

Isaias could have been quite a bit worse.  If that wind shear had not been so strong off of Florida and the track 75 miles east we could have had a major hurricane coming ashore along Long Island.  With the trough to the west Isaias could have been coming up the coast in a similar fashion to '38.   Damage in New England would have been so much worse than it was.  Lucky for wind shear and maybe SAL this wasn't too bad.

I was able to take a ride around my area of Central NH.  Really not a lot of tree damage.  That makes sense because I never gusted higher than 42mph and I'm up high with a open south exposure.  I'm actually surprised there is as much power out as being reported.  Our high gusts also did not last very long.  Really as that main feeder band came through.  I thought the backside west winds would have been stronger as what happens as a Noreaster passes but this was different because it was a filling storm not a strengthening storm as a Noreaster is.

Still need rain but I'm lucky to have received my .40",  I know much of the board received less.
