  1. Some how some way we didn't even get a drop from this! WTH??
  2. What on the world is going on here? IMG_7474.mov
  3. Thanks Jim! Mine were definitely not red, and I definitely knew that I had seen them - the sprites in the video seem to be there only because you know they will be! LOL
  4. On the way home from the U2 concert in Philly last night, we were traveling up Rt. 202 in Chadds Ford about 12:30am, right around Rt 1 to Rt 926. Twice we saw lightning wayyyy off in the distance. It did not look like typical lightning - extremely brief flash, yellowish in color - kind of like a strobe. If I hadn't seen it twice I would have thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. When I got home, I looked on Radarscope and saw that they only electric storms in that direction were 107 miles away northwest of Scranton/WB! Would it be possible to see lightning from that far away, or was what I see "sprites" coming out of the tops of the clouds? I don't know if sprites are only visible in space or from the ground. Or could it have been upward lightning? Thanks for any comments.
  5. Just had a downpour here in Malvern with some of the biggest raindrops I've ever seen. Tiny blob on radar moving due east just north of Rt. 202. Had lots of folks running to put up their car windows.
  6. 82F in West Chester with a delicious 68F dewpoint. I'm entertaining myself by watching the PA Turnpike cameras as the front rolls through and the images turn from sunny dry concrete to ominous dark clouds to 0.1 mile visibility in rain. Don't judge me!
  7. 0.39" today in West Chester. So far.
  8. 25° with winds gusting to 27mph here in West Chester. Heavy sleet.
  9. 4" of snow in downtown West Chester and has been sleeting since 3am. I know because it has kept me up most of the night! Battleground looks to be right along turnpike now. @JimCaruso here's what the correlation coefficient looks like.
  10. 31mph gust here in West Chester at 4:44pm. Temp has dropped from high of 71F at 2:48pm to 48F now. Back to reality for February! It was great while it lasted.
  11. At 5 o'clock on the dot, winds shot up to 33mph here in WC
  12. Well wasn't expecting that! Got alerted to Svr Warning about 15 minutes ago - looked at radar and was like oh crap! Just got hit - 36mph gust and very heavy rain. A blizzard of leaves. Moderate lightning. Temp dropping quickly from mid-70s to mid-60s.
  13. 2.14" in the Vantage Vue in West Chester boro. Interesting watching the swirl down in the VA capes. These systems are really long-lived this year.
  14. 1.33" today. Currently 72F - noticeably cooler outside and it feels wonderful.
  15. 0.45" so far tonight from this downpour. As Chesco mentioned, not a single bolt of lightning and max wind speed of 19 just as the rain started. I hadn't looked at the HRRR since this morning, but activity looked much lighter and more scattered. Oh well, I'll take it!
