  1. 422 Highway (River Water fall) in eastern Berks county:
  2. Sad story out of eastern Berks tonight, heard of a car swept away around 5pm with a woman 9 months pregnant and her 2 kids. They found them just after 10pm. May they RIP. https://www.readingeagle.com/news/article/westbound-lanes-of-ben-franklin-highway-closed-in-amity-township-due-to-flooding
  3. Still raining up here but not like it was when it started at 2:20pm. My gauge looks to be approaching 4"
  4. Just a morning downpour to get today started why not... ...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM EDT THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE TONIGHT... The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a * Flash Flood Watch for portions of northern Delaware, northeast Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, including the following areas, in northern Delaware, New Castle. In northeast Maryland, Cecil. In New Jersey, Camden, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Northwestern Burlington, Salem, Somerset, and Warren. In Pennsylvania, Berks, Delaware, Eastern Chester, Eastern Montgomery, Lehigh, Lower Bucks, Northampton, Philadelphia, Upper Bucks, Western Chester, and Western Montgomery. * From 2 PM EDT this afternoon through late tonight * Showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight will be capable of producing torrential rainfall, with local amounts of 1 to 3 inches with locally higher amounts potentially occurring in a short period of time. This could lead to localized flash flooding. * The risk of flash flooding is highest in urbanized and low- lying areas. Rapid rises on small creeks and streams are 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.
  5. Day 2 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1216 PM CDT Wed Jul 10 2019 Valid 111200Z - 121200Z ...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE OHIO VALLEY AND LOWER GREAT LAKES INTO THE MID ATLANTIC... ...SUMMARY... Strong thunderstorms posing a risk for potentially damaging wind gusts are expected to develop across parts of the upper Ohio Valley, lower Great Lakes region, and Mid Atlantic Thursday afternoon into the evening. ...Lower Great Lakes/OH Valley into the Mid Atlantic... A shortwave trough initially centered from near the southern tip of Hudson Bay into the Lower Great Lakes will move eastward on Thursday. In conjunction with this trough, a surface low will move into Quebec and a trailing cold front will move across the OH Valley and Allegheny Plateau. Midlevel lapse rates are forecast to generally remain modest, but low-level moisture will be sufficient to support at least moderate buoyancy, with MLCAPE potentially rising above 2000 J/kg in areas where stronger heating occurs. Effective shear of 25-35 kt will support some storm organization, especially where stronger instability is realized. Scattered thunderstorm development is possible by early afternoon along the cold front from the OH Valley into the lower Great Lakes, with additional development also expected further east into portions of the Mid Atlantic, given negligible capping across the warm sector. Multicell clusters will likely be the dominant mode, with an attendant risk of damaging wind and perhaps some marginally severe hail. In areas where surface winds are locally backed, due either to terrain features or mesoscale surface boundaries, some supercell potential may evolve as well. Any supercell would be accompanied by a somewhat greater risk of hail and perhaps a brief tornado, in addition to the damaging wind threat. ...Central Gulf Coast... NHC is forecasting the development of a tropical cyclone across the north-central Gulf of Mexico on Thursday. The system is forecast to move west-southwestward through the first half of the period, with a potential turn more to the west-northwest tomorrow night. Low-level flow fields will strengthen as the system intensifies, though the westerly motion of the cyclone and forecast for the center to remain well offshore through the period are not ideal for a TC tornado threat. A brief tornado threat cannot be ruled out near the central Gulf Coast, especially later in the period as the system intensifies. Locally damaging wind gusts will also be possible, especially across portions of central/western LA and the upper TX coast during the afternoon/evening, where strong heating/destabilization is possible prior to scattered thunderstorm development, within a regime of modestly increasing northeasterly flow in response to the deepening cyclone. ...Northeast ND into northern MN... Midlevel flow will increase substantially across ND into northern MN during the day on Thursday, as a fast-moving shortwave trough traverses the Canadian Prairies. A surface low attendant to the shortwave will move into southern MB by tomorrow evening, as a trailing cold front moves through the northern Plains. With initially modest low-level moisture and a tendency for the strongest large-scale ascent to remain north of the international border, the potential for convection along the front into northeast ND/northwest MN remains highly uncertain. However, wind profiles and instability will be favorable for organized convection, and there will be a conditional severe risk with any storms that develop in situ along the cold front and/or move into the region from southern MB. ...MAXIMUM RISK BY HAZARD... Tornado: 2% - Marginal Wind: 15% - Slight Hail: 5% - Marginal
  6. Dumped my rain gauge at 1am last night with 4 1/4" in it. Still raining this morning, so still waiting on my final total once this rain finally moves out. Was really heavy from 9pm through midnight last night.
  7. Took them long enough to issue this: Flood Advisory National Weather Service Mount Holly NJ 1054 PM EDT Sun Jul 7 2019 PAC011-080645- /O.NEW.KPHI.FA.Y.0135.190708T0254Z-190708T0645Z/ /00000.N.ER.000000T0000Z.000000T0000Z.000000T0000Z.OO/ Berks PA- 1054 PM EDT Sun Jul 7 2019 The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued a * Flood Advisory for... Northern Berks County in eastern Pennsylvania... * Until 245 AM EDT. * At 1052 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to thunderstorms. One to two inches of rain have fallen. This will cause minor flooding in the advisory area. * Some locations that could experience flooding include... Kutztown, Hamburg, Fleetwood, Womelsdorf, Wernersville, Newmanstown, Leesport, Shoemakersville, Bernville, Strausstown, Lenhartsville, Fairview Hgts and Centerport.
  8. All of a sudden downpouring. Jesus this isn't moving much at all and just pouring and pouring away.
  9. Intense heavy rain here, not so much in the way of wind
  10. Well radar over my immediate looks just like what I had on Tuesday and that was some wicked winds. We'll see what happens.....
