  2. NWS Says No Tornado in Toms River
  3. This seemed more than some generic t-storm wind damage based on the response from first responders on the ground. The highly localized nature of it...all within a few blocks, also suggests more than generic t-storm wind. Strong microburst would fit the bill I suspect. Local police thinking tornado, will see what NWS comes up with - NJ weather: Toms River police report tornado touched down in East Dover NWS confirms waterspout in the vicinity according to the below - Waterspout funnel cloud spotted above N.J. Shore town during storms
  4. Move that due east and it would be in the vicinity of the Toms River damage...
  5. Multiple trees on houses...defintely some type of weather event...I hadn't looked at models for this close enough today, possibly some type of rotation event?
  6. Tree down on vehicle now, this seems to mostly be localized to the area near and east of the Ocean County Mall.
  7. Toms River NJ Fire Departments in North Central Ocean County presently reporting some type of wind event with many trees down and gas leaks reported, in the area of Gilmores Island Road. Gas meters reported ripped off houses.
  8. Modeling did well pegging the peak coast winds between 11 and 2 imo...here is the NAM from this morning
  9. Don't think I've seen this one posted yet...82 mph at Island Beach State Park...

  10. Agreed...I don't think we are far from each other...I at the North Eastern most extent of Atlantic Couny. The period from about 11 to 12:30 was so was the worst. Police scanner lit up, just about every Atlantic County fire department in service for trees/wires down. I have an 8x10 aluminum framed fabric shelter at the head of my driveway, sticks out about a foot past the front of the house...a gust broke the frame in half at that small part sticking out, never had that happen before. This evergreen didn't fair so well, the girth of it gives you a sense of its previous height relative to those near by.
  11. 0Z GFS ULL looks to be right over mouth of DE Bay at 18Z on Monday...south of 18Z but maybe a little north of 12Z today...ridging between the 2 runs...more than 18Z but less than 0Z.
  12. Very nice Bonito, enjoy! Great eating and fighting! Not sure where the 102 near KACY came from on that graphic posted above...the NWS hourlies had KACY (Pomona) at 98 at 1 pm, 100 at 2 pm and 99 at 3 pm...I suppose there could have been a 102 measurement somewhere in between?
  13. E of KACY...started snowing around 4pm with a temp of 35...had snow mixed with rain until 7ish, then snow with a temp of 31 to 32...tapering off now...def over 1/8" but shy of 3/16", will call it .15"...more than a trace, definitely an "accumulation", nice event 😆
