If something matured enough today, would be formidable. But I think lack of forcing , and tough environment , will limit our potential. 

You were saying? Not that severe, but pretty much the only thing on the radar in eastern PA or NJ.

Edit: thunder in the distance for awhile, but, as usual, just rain in Media and it went by in the time it took me to post the first images I‘ve attempted here.

That cell got SVR warned...I missed it but mt holly references wind. Nothing but rain as it rolled through here.  We just had another heavy shower swing through.

We are in marginal risk for severe today.

...PA and NJ southwestward into northern GA...
   Although beneath an upper ridge, the air mass will remain moist and
   the region will experience strong heating. MLCAPE of 2000-3000 J/kg
   will develop, and will conditionally favor pulse storms capable of
   marginally severe wind or hail over the Appalachians. Storm mode
   over northern areas such as PA and NJ may trend toward multicells
   with 20-30 kt mid to high-level flow. The severe threat will be tied
   to the diurnal cycle, and will dwindle by early evening.

Like yesterday, we are in a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms.

...Middle Atlantic...

   Strong boundary-layer heating is forecast across portions of the
   Middle Atlantic region, especially from southern NJ into the
   Carolinas. As temperatures climb through the mid 80s to near 90F,
   scattered deep convection is expected to develop, both along the lee
   trough and more pronounced cold front over NJ/PA. Wind profiles are
   not particularly strong but northwesterly deep-layer flow should be
   adequate for multicell clusters capable of generating locally strong
   wind gusts. This activity should propagate toward southeast VA/NC
   during the evening hours.

.82" from a heavy downpour this afternoon around 4 PM.

Does this count as "Getting VAY'ed"?

.11" yesterday, and most of that was from the heavy mist after 8pm or so

I had about the same amount of rain last Thursday.
