    Nope never got anything. Just googled the green heron and I think you're right. I thought it looked like some kind of heron but never knew they could be that small. Thanks!

    Medium - long range tropics

    Ha! I think it's a super neat image. My dad actually went down to SC to help with recovery efforts after Hugo. He has lots of stories from that one.

    Anybody know what kind of bird this is? (Besides dead) found him outside our office. I think he flew into the window.

    Severe threat - July 27th

    Had am amazing light show last night. Wish I didn't have that 5am wake up call or I would have stayed up longer. Saw one flash of lightning through my window that hung in the air so long the sky turned green. Don't know that I've ever seen that. Heard a couple of loud cracks as I dozed off and prayed the ning wouldn't hit any of my 10+ foot trees in the back yard. Glad to see we didn't have much damage.

    Severe threat - July 27th

    Lightning and thunder steadily increasing just south of Pottstown. Heaviest precipitation is to my west. Lights have already flickered so I'm hoping they hold out for the night. Radar indicates there could be some hail. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Thanks guys. Wish y'all could have heard Adam and myself that day. I glanced up from my cube and all I could get out of my mouth was "Adam look! A bird! A big bird!"

    Heavy Rains/Svr threat 7/14-7/15

    This should give you a good laugh. My mom spoke with my uncle yesterday who lives in California and he was complaining about how hot and gross it was outside. He said the humidity was 30%...sigh

    Heavy Rains/Svr threat 7/14-7/15

    Preston and Steve were talking about the storm damage in Voorhees (I think?) yesterday and mentioned tornado reports. Any plans on someone from Mount Holly surveying the damage today?

    SPC has issued a MD for our area.80% chance for a watch issuance MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1367 NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK 1206 PM CDT MON JUL 14 2014 AREAS AFFECTED...NRN VA...MD...PA...NJ...SE NY...DE...ERN WV...FAR WRN CT CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY VALID 141706Z - 141830Z PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...80 PERCENT SUMMARY...A SEVERE THREAT IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON FROM ERN WV AND NRN VA EXTENDING NEWD ACROSS MUCH OF PA INTO NJ AND SE NY. ISOLATED LARGE HAIL AND WIND DAMAGE SHOULD BE THE PRIMARY THREATS AS THE CELLS INTENSIFY OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS. WW ISSUANCE WILL LIKELY BE NEEDED ACROSS THE REGION THIS AFTERNOON. DISCUSSION...THE LATEST SFC ANALYSIS SHOWS A SFC TROUGH EXTENDING FROM MD SWWD ACROSS CNTRL VA. SFC DEWPOINTS ALONG THE TROUGH ARE IN THE LOWER 70S F AND MODERATE INSTABILITY IS ALREADY IN PLACE EARLY THIS AFTERNOON. MLCAPE IS ESTIMATED IN THE 1000 TO 2000 J/KG RANGE. CONTINUED DESTABILIZATION AND INCREASING LOW-LEVEL CONVERGENCE ALONG THE SFC TROUGH SHOULD RESULT IN SCATTERED THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT HOUR. CONVECTION WILL ALSO BE SUPPORTED BY AN UPSTREAM SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING INTO THE REGION FROM THE WEST EVIDENT ON WATER VAPOR IMAGERY. IN ADDITION...REGIONAL WSR-88D VWPS ACROSS THE MCD AREA SHOW 0-6 KM SHEAR IN THE 40 TO 50 KT RANGE. THIS COMBINED WITH MODERATE INSTABILITY SHOULD BE FAVORABLE FOR ISOLATED SUPERCELL DEVELOPMENT. SEVERE MULTICELLS WILL ALSO LIKELY DEVELOP. DUE TO STEEP LOW-LEVEL LAPSE RATES AND UNIDIRECTIONAL WIND PROFILES ABOVE 1 KM...ANY CONVECTION THAT SHOWS ORGANIZATION SHOULD HAVE A WIND DAMAGE THREAT. ISOLATED LARGE HAIL WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY WITH CELLS THAT EXHIBIT ROTATION. ..BROYLES/HART.. 07/14/2014

    Thanks for all the tips guys. The husband really wanted to do Cape May so we made the trek down there. The weather made it worth while. Wasn't too hot and there was a nice sea breeze.
