  1. 0.27" of rain with our 1st rain event of the week. 2.87" so far this month which is 0.73" above normal here in NW Chester County PA. We are now at 26.51" of w.e. so far this year which is 123% of normal through today. Through today the Philly burbs have not seen a 90+ day - however the PHL airport has already seen one such day. To highlight the PHL Airport heat island effect - while Philly averages 21 days of 90+ in a normal summer season....here in the NW suburbs of Philly we have only experienced 3 years in the last 20 years of records with even 10 or more days that surpass the 90 degree mark.
  2. Rainfall between the 2 storms yesterday was 0.79" here in NW Chester County Pa MTD rain now at 2.60" (+0.76) YTD rain at 26.24" (+4.95") 123% of normal Temp wise running 0.6 degrees above normal thru the 1st 13 days of the month of June
  3. I see JB is indicating the period from October 2018-May 2019 across the entire USA was the coldest of that period since the 1977-78 stretch....
  4. Here in Chester County we finished May at 3.6 degrees above normal temp wise. Rainfall finished at 6.63" (+2.43" above normal) YTD we are 122% of normal rainfall at 23.64" of water equivalent. May 2019 marked our 6th consecutive month of above normal temps (however 2 of those months - Jan/March were barely +0.3 above normal) Of interest in the last 15 months we have seen 8 above normal months and 7 below normal months - so from a longer term view nothing that unusual.
  5. Another 0.68" with the 1st 2 Thunderstorms this evening here in East Nantmeal Twp in NW Chester County PA - with one more t-storm just pushing into the Township as I tap this post...that should be the end of the strong storms for tonight. 2.36" of rain (so far) over last 4 days
  6. Thunder shower underway here in NW Chesco - notice on latest radar that the sea breeze front has made it thru Trenton and is now just NE of NE Philly airport...will be interesting to see if this boundary triggers or enhances some activity as we move through this PM Sea Isle was up to 88 warmest of year before sea breeze cut temp 12 degrees in 8 minutes
  7. 0.69" with the big storm with 0.80" for the day - 1.62" in last 4 days and 5.49" this month Currently 66.4 and cloudy
  8. Additional rounds incoming here is some video from the earlier hail 2019-05-28 18.07.43.mp4
  9. Lots of pea size hail rocking the windows and deck here in East Nantmeal Twp Tornado warning just issued
  10. 2nd storm of the day underway in East Nantmeal Township in NW Chesco. 0.11" earlier this morning - we did reach a high of 80.4 today.- now passing 1 inch of rain here in the past 4 days. Beauty of a day down the shore in Sea Isle City with a nice sea breeze keeping things comfy
  11. Today's high temp of only 48.7 was the coldest May 13th maximum temperature in the history of local Chester County records back to 1894. Previous low max was the 49.0 set back in 1938. Also, with another 0.85" of rain today brings our 4 day total to 2.09"
  12. 1.49" so far today here in East Nantmeal Chester County PA
  13. Heavy rain and 54.9 here in NW Chesco with now up to 1.17" of rain so far today. YTD we are up to 18.27" of rain which is 0.55" above normal through today
  14. You are a wise man.....as usual!! I do think think I get to at least five 90+ days.....I predict 8 for you.....
  15. Sea breeze front continues to march SW bound - noted the wind swing at Sea Isle City with drizzle now and down to 57.3 on my station down there and already down to 55.9 at TTN - just went through KPNE and down to 66 - KVAY down to 60.1 while PHL still at 71. As of 930pm front looks to lie from about Easton to KDYL to KPNE to KACY
