Wallingford yesterday about 6pm before we got hit a little after with a ton of rain and lightning. Had to drain the pool a bit after. Clouds were bubbly, dark, low, and had a somewhat circular motion to them as they moved by. I used to live in Ohio and went through 2 tornados and had a microburst here last year so tell tales are always watched.

There was definitely instability yesterday. Imagine if we didn't have trees and structures around how easy it would be to see. I like when I see vertical motion (clouds moving up through the atmosphere).


Anyway .. Here are some totals from yesterdays storms.

Same town, one area of East Hartford got over an inch, the other less than 1/2". Normal with these hit & miss severe storms.

Summer ends...September 23rd @3:50 AM Eastern. (Ducks...)


https://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Curre...aspx?Northeast

Virtually nothing in Connecticut. The map won't reflect what came though late Wednesday afternoon/early evening (data cut-off is Tuesday at 8 AM Eastern).


Mamattus clouds may look like this:



You usually see them after periods of instability. Again, after the Springfield tornado was the best case for me, despite being about 35 air miles away from the tornado that day (June 1, 2011).

Maybe you forgot? Not sure. Since this is a weather thread, Summer is over, please understand why... Maybe this might help.. September is not a summer month.

We are getting the outer clouds from Dorian over CT.. Check out the loop! Cat 2 It's sitting 60 miles off the coast but nobody on the coast there has "sustained" hurricane force winds. So close though! Seeing Tornados and wind damage happening though from Tropical Storm force and heavy rain bands.


We wont get anything here! Just clouds. Wow, close. Cat 1 at our latitude but too far out.

There's a noticeable breeze now out of the east... rain should start in a few hours


I wonder if there will be any damage anywhere due to an isolated thunderstorm.

Feels like October! Mid Afternoon and only 60s here. Awesome weather past 3 weeks!

Even in the 60s in Philly and NJ. Like an October 25th normal max

Meteorological seasons do not follow actual weather IN CONNECTICUT any better than the calendar seasons. Case in point: March 1st is spring per the meteorological calendar. Except it's not. Not even close. In Florida and Arizona where spring training is underway? Yes.

And while it's been cooler so far this September, it was still very hot last September and we did get a blast of very summerlike humidity just the other day.

Team Calendar Season all the way!

Dorian to strengthen into a Cat 2? Far from us. Lucky? or just the way the pattern goes. We always cant get hit
