I'll be surprised to get anything more from these thunderstorms :tongue:

 

I'm guessing that we'll see a line of generally "meh" thunderstorms, though I suppose we could see some nocturnal spinnies, as well as some bowing segments within the line to bring down some of the strong winds from the LLJ.

yea this is all shear/llj driven. Not much instability really.

Are these coming in earlier than expected? Radar looks closer than I thought it would be

Looks like we are going to get two rounds. Main batch is further west,  just entering Pa

Can tell the heaviest stuff went right over the Chester/Ridley/yeadon Mcdade Blvd corridor is S&E Delco. No surprise Phl guesses to 55. That’s right where the strongest updraft went over (follow the lightning ! Saw some power flashes from that corridor from my vantage point. Only a handful of transformers/wires called being dispatched. No reports of damage on the scanner.

Only reason I am here is the phone alert, as nothing much was happening and I fell asleep.  I tried

to find a signature on every radar, but couldn't see one clearly.  Big area of Downburst/Macroburst

style winds were located between Chester and Camden, along both sides of the river.  Now, best

possible signature is near Bensalem, moving toward Bristol.

I'm in Towamencin. We had intense rain and a few rumbles. I called my parents, who live in NE Philly to warn them. I could hear their wind - it sounded insane. My mom says it's died down quite a bit just now.

Thought about setting an alarm to check on radar and warnings but opted to rely on the phone alerts as I just finished an 80 hour week.  Was hoping not to get an alert and sleep but the alert worked...hustled wife and dog into the basement.  At its peak it was bad enough that my wife got over being awakened at this hour.  Surprised and pleased we have power.
