There is also a marginal risk for near/in the warm sector tornadoes along coastal NJ and DE today (the 21st).

Overall, not much severe stuff forecasted, just heavy rains. Correct? Other than what you mentioned.

2 plus inches already this week and going to add another 2 or 3 from the looks of it. Wish we had sandy soil like you have in NJ. :)

Our soil in Mount Laurel is primarily clay.  Golf courses here react the same way as they do in Bucks County.  It is funny Kresson in Voorhees is clay on the front 9 and sand on the back 9.

Kresson is a "unique" course for sure. 

I'm supposed to, I say supposed to, play golf tomorrow at 11 AM at Berkleigh Golf course in Kutztown, PA. I'm hoping it won't be a wash out for tomorrow. It may not rain while playing, but the soggy conditions may not be suitable to play.

Not a good stretch for planning outdoor activities that require a rain free period. We have an outing on Monday morning. That doesn't look great either.

Much nicer morning than I expected. I knew it probably wouldn’t be raining when I woke up at 6am, but I thought it would already be cloudy and more humid. Instead, it was another glorious, sunny, dry, September-like morning.

This may sound crazy but I kind of like rainy weekends. I always feel like I should be doing something more interesting on summer weekends, but I don’t play golf, I don’t have a beach house, I usually don’t feel like driving to the shore for day trips and putting up with crowds, I don’t feel like rushing out of the house early in the morning for much of anything, and later in the day it gets too hot, so I end up staying around the house feeling like I should be out doing something more exciting with the kids. A rainy day gives me “permission” to stay home without feeling like I’m missing anything. I don’t like not being able to go out on the deck and barbecue, but I do enjoy sitting out on our covered porch while it is raining.

Unfortunately, I do need to go back and forth to Philadelphia for an event this evening / tonight, so I’m not looking forward to doing that in pouring rain and the resulting traffic...

DC area looks to take it on the chin. Could def see some sort of frontogeneises type band sitting west of the low track which would be in the Lns-bwi-dc-hgr-ipt zone with over 3” of rain Think most of use see average .75-1.5 totals with iso totals above 2”

It’s had a decent summer honestly

Always have to look at both sides of the spectrum with threats so can’t say I’m 100% surprised it ended up breaking this way. As others have said, atleast one day of rain will be appreciated by many.
