West Chester must have just been/is being smacked right now?  
 

No one has anything to report?

I'm south of there, and so far it's been a pretty cool light show, with some huge ctc lightning, for the last hour plus. It's all scraping by just to the NW of here, hoping we can catch the tail end of it.

It has been non-stop lightning/thunder for the past 2 hours so finally came down to check the radar on the laptop and assumed there had been rain all that time and nope, the line hadn't even gotten here until now when I saw I had 0.25".  Now the front edge of the line has moved over my area and am getting almost 3"/hr rates.

Getting badly needed rain is often like pulling teeth good to see you broke through

Looks like Flourtown was reporting a water rescue. I think the heaviest is now pretty much past and currently have 3.42" in the bucket with 0.61"/hr rate.  Like a month's worth of rain in an hour.  Temp 75 with dp 74.  And with that, time to go back to bed.  The lightning/thunder has pretty much ended for now.

ETA - now at 3.45" and light rain at 2:30 am.

Will have to say that however innocuous Fred was when it fell apart over Cuba and never made it to Hurricane status, it still packed a wet wallop once it regenerated itself!  Wasn't expecting that rain band line to hold together although we were certainly warm and juicy enough this far east to prime the pump...

 Currently down to 73, which may end up being my low, and cloudy with dp 73

Picked up 1.6" last night, light show was tremendous though. We had some good booms from just after midnight until about 230 am. Needless to say didn't get much sleep between the tor warnings going off on my phone and flash flood warnings. Felt like the storm was on top of us for hours based on the lightning/thunder but it really only downpoured for 30 mins or so.
