The rain is just entering my area, and the winds are starting to pick up. Looks like were in for a nasty night.

Gaston strengthened while it was OVER Va. this year, and there was another that did the same thing within the last few years, but the name escapes me. I don't know what it is, but it's like tropical entities don't know Va. is a land mass.

This shows a good band wrapping around, and I believe the rotation seen is the mid-level low which the NWS said moved farther north than progged, and messed up the forecast.
Apparently, there was a tornado reported 10 miles (about) east of Philly today, which is about 20 miles from me.
The dew point here in S. Jersey reached 76 today.

Probably should have posted this in between Ivan and Jeanne, but didn't want to make light (then) of serious situations. But, in retorspect, got this e today and thought it humorous.................

Lessons learned through Hurricane Ivan




1. An oak tree on the ground looks four times bigger than it did
standing up.

2. When house hunting look for closets with lots of leg room.

3. Shower water is much colder than kitchen sink water--and tastes just
as bad.

4. AA, C and D are the only alphabet we need.

5. The four-way stop is still an ingenious reflection of civility.

6. Radio can be the best way to watch television.

7. Chain-saw wielding men are nothing to be afraid of.

8. SUV's are the best makeshift tents on the market.

9. You can use your washing machine as a cooler.

10. It's your God-given right to sit on your back porch and eat Chinese
takeout by candlelight in your underwear.

Thomas says..... [Re: mbfly]

No one's talking about it, but Thomas is as of noon today.

Looking at the latest visible satellite imagery we have a disturbed area of weather in the SW Caribbean Sea east of Nicaragua and Panama.

In any event a couple of days or so ago I began mentioning the probability of a Western Caribbean/Gulf Of Mexico tropical cyclone threat. October-November is basically our local tropical cyclone season. Basically we get splitting and SW backing into the GOM of mid level cold core longwave troughs and associated surface cold fronts and subtropical jet stream mid level shortwave troughs. These temperate mid latitude non tropical weather systems sit out over the still very warm North America ocean waters and transform and grow into warm core tropical systems.

Bottom line we need to watch this disturbance because it will "possibly" grow into a future Tropical Cyclone Matthew and threaten all of the Gulf Coast, but particularly the mid and eastern Gulf Coast from New Orleans to Key West. To jog our memories, remember CAT 5 Opal in 1995? She was a local home grown tropical cyclone.

Well, since Richie opened the can o' worms...a couple models are developing the system, quote from JB:

"I am very nervous about an Opal-esque ending to the hurricane season, and of course that would mean Opalanoia. I remarked last week how this week looked like the set up that led to Opal's development, but Opal came from the Caribbean. Well, I am concerned that we may see something like that evolving over the next 6-10 days. The southwest Caribbean is getting dirty, and I think this area will drift northwestward and gradually get better organized. The modelling is overwhelming on a westward move into the Yucatan this weekend (yes, it's starting to see it). And while there has to be some concern about it simply trying to come between the two subtropical ridges for a quicker move to the Gulf, I again am relying on the history of what I consider an analog. Let's remember that Florida was hit by four storms in 1995, three of them hurricanes. There are some similarities here to the amount of traffic we have seen. The western and central Gulf remain very warm relative to averages as well as the southwest Caribbean. Suffice to say, I am nervous about the pattern.

Also very warm is the area east of Islands, which may mean the Caribbean islands may have to look out for some renegade African wave, though it would appear that part of the season is shutting down. Lisa has two chances of making it back here, one is slim, the other none."

Right now here it's almost pitch black...not hearing any thunder, but radar is indicating some nasty stuff...pouring and windy.

My street is filling up, I think I might have a flash flood on my hands. Very windy just had a gust up to 35mph. How warm are our water temps off NJ and LI?

I discovered this site last year when Isabel was headed my way; came back to follow Charley and this unusual season has had me glued. I've been meaning to post for a while - it just feels like spying if I never post - but didn't want to but in on the flow of pertinent information during the storms.

Anyway, in Kent County, MD (northern Delmarva), we've been feeling Jeanne's remnants this afternoon. Raining hard for hours now and my DirecTV signal is currently having a rough go, so that may mean we have worse on the way. I live right near the mouth of the Sassafrass River and the Chesapeake Bay, but up on a bluff (and in the third story of my building), so flooding's not much of an issue for me.

Oddly, the northern Delmarva has been relatively spared each time the hurricane remnants have gone northeast this year. Got some rain from Charley, but nothing unmanageable. Frances drenched Maryland on the other side of the Bay, but we got a couple showers if that. Ivan brought plenty of rain, but again not as much as across the Chesapeake and we didn't experience the tornadoes that parts of northern Virginia and central Maryland did. Even today, it started raining hard later here than in may areas west and north of us.

What am I missing? What's developing?

I'm thinking about getting a weather station for my house. Nothing fancy (or expensive) but I'd like the basics, temp, humidity, pressure etc... and I of course want accuracy too
What brands to y'all recommend? I'm thinking under $200 I've seen a lot of LaCrosse brand is that a good one?
Thanx for the advice!

The water just fills up very quickly, I just got hammered with a rainfall rate over 3 inches. Crazy

I think the low pressure is tampering with my brain. I actually feel a little buzzed, like you'd feel after a couple of beers. If my head is this sensitive to Jeanne now, I'd hate to imagine what it would have been like at full strength.
