8/7 Slight Risk Of Severe Thunderstorm Obs

What are your thoughts on the constant VAY crush jobs?

I only got .86", which is nothing when compared to VAY. Definitely appears the bullseye has moved over VAY. Maybe needs to check the batteries in his station? Low batteries can give some erroneous readings. :bye:  

There has been more of a split, at least from my perspective, of rain/storms firing more consistently to the North and South of me.  Downtown Philly was getting rocked the last few rounds. I had one cell fire up close by around 3:30 AM and dumped .25", then the same thing happened around 4 PM and then as the front passed through it was just a light rain. Everything else was firing up North and South (VAY and the city) or just as it got by me heading NE in to Hunterdon County.  (See my post above where I'm in the "dry zone")

If you want my honest opinion, I think someone in VAY did something wrong this year and he is being punished. :ohmy: Flooding rains, high winds, tornado's, locusts, etc.  He's probably growing lily pads in his garden, and the figs are drowning. Wait till winter when VAY gets about 6 ft of snow every week. :popcorn:

0.16 - a yawner.

Local geography appeared to play a strong role in yesterday's winners and losers. There was a clear area downwind of Chesapeake Bay as storms started to develop that lined up well with light qpf in western suburbs. Meanwhile convection was enhanced further east as bay breezes from Chesapeake and Delaware Bays interacted leading to heavy storms near philly. Finally sea breeze helped trigger strong convection west of NYC

We had strong storms roll through the OBX last night. Seeing a large storm roll out over the ocean is something to behold. Just nonstop lightning over the ocean.

I think there was one in Springfield last week as well, an EF0.  I believe that Armando who some know from other boards actually filmed it.
