annoying that the worst model for hurricanes comes out first

0-6" in NYC if you were to blend the GFS & ICON. #powerduo

in the end the surface system went east but the best mid levels were west

It was shifting quickly to the west with most of LI drying out and it suddenly seemed to hit a wall. There are broken clouds to my southwest and I can see some sky but it's still raining a little here.

Been pouring just about all day at home in scotch Plains. I live right off of Rt. 22, bordering Mountainside, so the NW corner of town. Drove down to the new Lidl in Woodbridge earlier and it was only drizzling. The sky was half blue and half gray. Left and drove right back into the monsoon near the Clark/Scotch Plains border, with no blue sky in sight.  Crazy how different the weather is in a 10-12 mile distance. Looks like the Driscoll bridge area has been the cutoff for most of the day.

The rain alone just took out the substation that supplies power to my street and surrounding streets…. Didn’t even need wind to do it.  Shows how so much rain can eventually cause infrastructure damage.
