Any thoughts as to what phenomenon may have caused these waves on radar traveling across the Delaware Bay? They have since continued to cross over Delaware. They don’t seem quite like an outflow boundary or a sea breeze.

They look like gravity waves.  I have never been that sharp about them, so I would not take my post as the correct answer.

Interesting. My accuweather buddy told me some folks might chalk that radar image up to gravity waves. Mysterious stuff, indeed.

Feb just texted me, he is not complaining about drought anymore.

Meanwhile in Mount Laurel, 0.01" today, got a golf round in in less than 3 hours because there was nobody there.

Got some fishing in this am.

0.97" so far today. My July+August total is 21" and may have missed a few when we were away.

Wow... That is some very strong but needed language in that FFW. What a disaster out there and no end in sight. 

Meanwhile at the eastern end of the county, we are sitting at 0.73" on the day. 

It is amazing how much it has rained in Berks, Lancaster & Chester Counties.

5.06” so far today in SW Berks County, Sinking Spring area. Most rain I’ve experienced in one day since moving to this house 6 years ago.  No water problems for me, but detoured around many flooded roads on the way home.  Pales in comparison to west/central Lancaster County right now.
