So I was able to pick up some new information. There was a funnel cloud in the north end section of Wilkes-Barre (about a mlle from where I'm at) and there are some power outages down in that area. If anyone is familiar with the area, it was near General Hospital on River Street.

There were other reported sightings of funnels from that same storm but no confirmed touchdowns as of yet.

Positively the best lightning show of the season here. Good way to end this b/s pattern; light show without brutal winds and rain.

I am. Really strange to get funnel clouds anywhere near there.

Packing the truck now. A frog drowned in my front yard tonite. Figured it was a hint. I was a bit caught off guard by the tiny sign next to him that said "avenge me". Never the less, time to go.

This thing is wild. They issued a tornado warning for Northampton county around 8:30, which is county above This was storm that looped north of PhillyFan. Then it kicked south of my area. I mean we got great show, but seems as if ground zero went decent amount south of us. Wish I could get reports from lower Lehigh Cty and Bucks Cty.

Rained hard for about a minute here in east-central PA, then the rain backed off to a light rain (which it's still doing now). Saw on the radar that the strip of heavier rain broke up as it reached us and then reformed on our other side (this happens a lot) as it hit the PA/NJ border. It got a bit windy, but thankfully nothing brutal. Lots of lightning to my south now, with a few quieter thunder claps.

And thus ends the stormy/wet pattern we've been in.

I think the cell that got Tornado Warned is the one that just went through my area earlier. Got 0.60" out of that soaker.

We had a tornado watch earlier today for this part of upstate NY, but so far all we've had has been a routine rainfall--very little in the way of thunder and lightning. However, this could be our last 80-plus day for a while because of the shift to fall-like conditions.

Just had ch 69 on , and they were doing the Reading version. Our area has had even more rain than Reading by far(just ask PhillyFan). Before tonight's bout , it was already the 6th wettest June -August on record, something MD and I have been railing about. So now add tonight's amount, plus we still have rest of August to go. Wanna laugh(or cry) more? They now mentioned chance of showers from an upper air disturbance sometime later Thursday laugh.gif I believe I mentioned that something like (that) would pop up wink.gif .
Also, note that 2 of the higher years in the top 6(maybe even more), including the horrific hurricanes of 1955 and 1972, Diane and Agnes I believe. So we are setting records here all on our own, without tropical help. Unbelievable, if you think about it.

Truly is incredible. The consistency of the storms is remarkable. Its been an every day deal. I'm very confident in my adult lifetime we've never had a wetter summer. Bigger storms? Maybe. More rain? No.

What else is amazing is the violence of many of these storms without any serious heat. Have their been warm days that have caused storms? Yes. But no 90's here, and a cool summer overall. Loaded with ULL, synoptic systems, etc. Really amazing.

Feel sorry for the mid-Atlantic folks with all the rain...

I don't think it was as cloudy and gloomy in the summer of 2011 as it is this year (in fact the first half of it was hot and dry), but in August and September combined there was 23.70" of rain at BWI which is over 6 months' worth. I think at least 2 events within were tropically enhanced.

The summer of 2003 was also very wet and except for the one event in September was not tropically enhanced to my recollection.

In an article in the Reading Eagle today:

QUOTE
At Reading Regional Airport, 0.75 inch was recorded, pushing the monthly total to 5.91, and the total for the meteorological summer - June, July and August - to 19.63 inches, good enough for the seventh-wettest summer in the 148-year precipitation database.


QUOTE
About 33 inches has been recorded there in 2017, more than 5 inches above normal.


Almost at last year's total for the year.
