Congrats to the Mets. They nailed this forecast.  Days in advance they got this one 100% right.

It’s raining like crazy.  Correct almost to the hour, days in advance.  Nicely done.

Just incredible what the radar is showing south of me. This is the third consecutive week where all the heavy rain has missed my area. Don't get me wrong, no one wants flooding but just a little would help. There are now a lot of lawns around here that are brown or turning brown. Just 0.02 recorded at the county airport today as of 9:00pm.

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.

Quote

 

The Berks County Coroner's office was called to the scene of a water rescue along Manatawny Creek in Douglass Township, authorities confirmed late Thursday night.

After a nearly five-hour search, emergency workers using watercraft located a vehicle swept away upstream in Ironside Creek, a tributary, amid raging flood waters.

Reports indicated the vehicle was occupied by a pregnant woman and her two children, whose vehicle had been pinned against a guard rail on Grist Mill Road, near Locust Road.

Amid darkness, rescuers reached the vehicle and gained access through a sun roof around 9:45 p.m., according to emergency radio dispatches.

A spokesman for the coroner's office confirmed that a unit was on its way to the scene in the vicinity of Manatawny Drive and Colebrookdale Road.

Dangerous conditions prevented rescuers earlier in the evening from getting to the vehicle, and emergency responders indicated it had flipped over and floated down the creek with the three occupants still inside.

A massive rescue effort was staged on the Ironstone and Manatawny creeks as multiple marine units with search boats were dispatched.

it's definitely an interesting meteorological phenom going on with seemingly an stationary lift mechanism stuck over the PA/WV/MD/NJ region (almost monsoonal-like) and things to the north getting spits of that...feast or famine...but the "famine" is actually just closer to normal....

Glad you finally getting some rain. Early evening looked like we would get in on the action. However, the northern part that look to hit me shifted south just giving my early some light showers. The county(Orange) just across the Hudson river from me even had flash flood warning. Talk about avoiding an area. :hmm:. Oh well, that's why we love weather. :classic_rolleyes:

We got a good dose on Saturday, with 1.5” but only have seen a few spotty doses the previous couple weeks. Plenty enough for the perennials, but the annuals (seedlings especially) just aren’t going to be successful with 2 hours of rain over 3 weeks. 

Storms falling apart as they trek east but hoping precipitation shield holds together

I was referring to the 1/2" you received. compared to my 0.02" of rain I would swap in a second. NWS/Albany say maybe more showers before 5:00am. I just dont see it after looking at radar.

Little band rolling through bringing the most intense rains of the event this morning. Picked up a 0.1" in a short time frame...so 0.6" for this event. Now i guess it's time to watch Barry...

Doesnt seems like anyone is really chiming in much yet as to where the remnants end up other than just what the models spit out, and looks like a wide variation at that

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The National Weather Service says an EF-1 tornado with wind speeds of 90 mph touched down in Mount Laurel when severe storms moved through the area on Thursday night. It is the second tornado to strike Mount Laurel in less than a week.

The tornado touched down in the Ramblewood and Birchfield neighborhoods in the township at 7:18 p.m.

The twister began on the Ramblewood Golf Course and then went into a wooded area. Several trees were damaged, including some that were uprooted.

Some apartment buildings also sustained minor damage.

The tornado was down on the ground for three minutes and traveled just over a mile.

This is the fifth tornado to hit New Jersey this year..

Two in one week for mount Laurel which is pretty nuts especially considering NJ only sees a handful (if that,) of tornadoes per year..

Edit: Surprised by this stat..

While it might appear that tornadoes in New Jersey are an uncommon occurrence, the Garden State has averaged two tornadoes annually in the past 20 years, said Sarah Johnson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Mt. Holly office.
