Leaving Nags Head en route for a wedding we are both in up in Red Bank. In my entire life, I will never have a week of beach weather that will equal this week. Seven days of sunshine and a few clouds, a pleasant easterly breeze every day to keep the flies away, and just enough wave action to keep things fun in the surf. Our friends are headed to Rodanthe next week and will most certainly NOT have the same luck we did. 

You timed it well given what next week (as of today) looks like down there.

Back home 0.11" thru 730 while PHL gets flooded.

Flooding in places that I haven’t seen flood before here in West Deptford, Gloucester county. Water is up to my back door. That first cell was nasty - probably borderline severe gusts. Continues to pour and looks like more is in the pipeline. 

Down the road from you in Wenonah, up to 2.29" of rain that started about 6:15pm.  

Vantage Vue shows 0.10" from 6-6:15pm, up to 0.18" by 7pm, then 0.70" at 7:10pm,. then 1.72" at 7:20pm. Rain rate here peaked at 18"/hr according to the Vue.  Still raining moderately.

Some strong winds and also mid-level rotation in the storm near Blackwood

and Turnersville.

Briefly formed a hook on radar as it crossed between Gloucester and Camden counties.  Made me look at velocities and saw what you're talking about.

My Vue also reports outrageous rain rates occasionally, although never as high as you saw!  Wonder if that's a weak area in their software.

Not a drop of rain here in the Boro tonight.

the 4.54" recorded at PHL yesterday annihilates the previous highest precip total for the date (1.22" 1999) & represents the 6th wettest date on record at Philadelphia for the month of September:

6.63" - 9/16/1999

4.76" - 9/10/2015

4.69" - 9/14/1966

4.65 - 9/22/1882

4.60" - 9/12/1960

4.54" - 9/7/2018

Philadelphia's precip records go back to April 1872

In the past 4 days Philadelphia set or tied these daily records: (3) high temperature, (1) warmest low temperature & (1) max precip
