I have to bring something up....to those not into weather, to those who think this is abnormal, to those who dont think anything about these extremes around the world... We only began weather record keeping in late 1800's...think about that...

Earth is not only billions of years old but humans been around about 500,000 years ....and we're only basing "extremes" and "abnomalties" on 150 years??????????

On that note I think future generations will be in for more suprises than we are with record breaking events...we have no idea how severe or common or frequent events were...

Just think of the possibilities

When all you see is leaves, sticks, branches and powerlines and no street pavement you know there was some serious wind.

If a Tornado is confirmed that will make 2 in 3 months and Tornado's are rare down there but only rare to our knowledge from record keeping.
OKX notes in it's "damage reports" some damage in the New Haven area (nowhere near what happened in parts of NYC though). Did the weakened version of the Staten Island/Brooklyn/Queens "tornadoes" cross the Sound in some way that got to the NH area? (Scroll to the bottom of this link: National Weather Service Text Product Display)

Lee Goldberg on Channel 7 last night said he'd be very surprised based on what he sees if it wasn't considered a tornado.

The important thing is, did the reservoirs (which I believe are mostly in lower upstate NY and northern CT) get a lot of rain?

Most of Ct. received an inch or less of rain; some areas up to 2". I read in the Connpost that Danbury received .35 inch, which is about what a lot of northern areas received if you look at the link below. (There are several reservoirs in the southern half of the state) Overall, we really didn't get enough rain to make a huge difference to the reservoirs. We need some good, soaking rains that will last several hours.

Was not much up here in the Quiet Corner, certainly not enough compared to lower Fairfield County and the New Haven area.

Can't believe there would have been more than half an inch.

the Earl topic should of been in here anyway

NHC has an 80 percent chance of a Cape Verdean storm developing soon, at least a TD within 24-48 hours likely. Then we get Lisa. Think it'll take two weeks to get from there to here? Cause I have no reason to believe it won't drift off well east like Danielle, Igor, and Julia.

Not sure, with the high pressure over us it can stall the thing down south and as the High moves East the storm will slowly come up the coast? So far into future, even models are all over the place but definetly showing something happening.

The thing is already at a pretty northerly latitude anyway, and moving to the northwest rather than the west.

It will probably become a TD and eventually TS shortly, but I sense a track of the storm similar to Julia.
