Tornado watch in western CT for late this afternoon and early evening.

I just heard this on the radio. I didn't get the details (I was in the shower and shampoo suds were in my ears) but I clearly heard:

- There's a tornado watch for late this afternoon and early evening in Litchfield and (another) county. I didn't hear the other county.

- Very heavy rain and thunderstorms statewide.

The other CT county was Fairfield (then virtually the whole rest of the NYC and Philadelphia areas except for Suffolk County on LI)

Stay safe everyone.

The last time I went out in a thunderstorm (with lightning) to walk my dog, one of my neighbors yelled at me: "Are you crazy??? Go home. NOW!"

My dog had to pee. Sheesh.

I thought my neighbor would kill me before the lightning got to me.

Dear Lord....5 day precip projection...looks like we're getting 3-7 inches of rain coming from this next Tropical System...Which will be Otto. Hope people are reading this to get a heads up!! Too bad I cant start a new thread.

Otto developing as we speak...soon to head up coast. Models trending West which like Earl is no good for us!

Currently 75mph winds SUSTAINED are forecasted. I think Friday the 1st or Monday the 3rd...I have to confirm that later on...busy today!

Looking at forecasts from BOX and OKX, this thing (Nicole) should be out of the way by Friday morning at the latest. It likely won't be a TS this far north, and won't be as strong as Earl. The NHC forecast discussion has it as extratropical by North Carolina or Virginia in latitude, with 40 knot max winds.

Sure it might have a name tomorrow, but this won't be much different than a nor'easter for us on Thursday.

OKX in their discussion is actually saying one model gives the potential for gusts up to 70 at the coast. And the "official" forecasts they are giving for coastal parts of metro NY (including CT) are talking about gusts to 55mph.

Not trying to overhype it, it certainly isn't a "hurricane", but we could easily see a lot of downed trees and power outages.

I don't remember the year (middle of the 2000s decade), but what's likely to become Nicole seems very similar to a storm named Tammy. It was a tropical storm in Florida, never became a hurricane, but was a very major flood mess in the Northeast. Even same time of year. Given the "T" name, I think it was 2004, the year Florida got all those hurricanes. Might have been 2005, the "Katrina" year.

Cambium, were you mixing up the names Otto and Nicole?
