  1. 9/5 Slight Risk Of Severe Storms Obs

    Yep 34mph gust here in West Chester.
  2. A whopping 0.17" in the bucket here in downtown WC. Really having trouble cashing in on precip this year - all around us but not here. Thinnest part of line hit us tonight. Weird! Nice lightning show, although this was a good test of our new rescue dog, and he didn't pass :-(
  3. 8/18 Thunderstorms, Heavy Rain Obs

    Same here. West Chester with pitiful 0.23" total. Sun now out.
  4. FYI (for those of you who read my forecasts)

    Thank you Tom for your dedication and efforts. I really appreciated your take on the weather and enjoyed reading your posts. They were so easily understandable to the layperson and helped me learn a lot. Best wishes to whatever's next!
  5. That makes 2.02" for today in downtown West Chester, adding to yesterday's 1.53" for total of 3.55". Nice!
  6. Some how some way we didn't even get a drop from this! WTH??
  7. 7/11 Marginal Risk Of Severe Storms Obs

    What on the world is going on here? IMG_7474.mov
  8. Far away thunderstorm - lightning or sprites?

    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
  9. 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.
  10. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    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.
  11. 5/1 Severe Thunderstorm Threat Discussion & OBS

    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!
  12. Inlan'easter Observations April 24th-26th

    0.39" today in West Chester. So far.
  13. 25° with winds gusting to 27mph here in West Chester. Heavy sleet.
  14. 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.
  15. 2/25/17 Line Of Showers and Thunderstorms Observations

    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.
