Just saw this on NOAA website WTF. Looks like a tornado watch has been issued for most of central Jersey and parts of PA. Hopefully nothing happens.

By the way, I haven't been back to the garbage state in 2 years and I am stuck in Chicago waiting on my connecting flight to Newark because of the weather in back there.

You're stuck in Chicago and you're calling NJ the garbage state? Got your body armor on?

I thought we're supposed to have a porn hub links in all weather threads now.

Asian girls? 😮
I'd like to make a preemptive respectful plea to the moderators to just delete those posts that are problematic as opposed to locking the entire threads? This tornado watch thread does serve a legitimate interest to all the forum members.

Remember, tornadoes are pretty rare around here, but the risk is slightly elevated in a mesoscale convective vortext event like this one. Keep an eye on the radar and the NWS site. Severe t-storms with heavy downpours, gusty winds, and lots of lightning (and hail for some) are far more likely and occurring as we speak...

I agree. Probably higher 80s reach low 90s in our area. I saw some predictions of 97 - that’s July and August heat wave sh$t.

Are you going? They always did everything first class now they have a Yankees affiliate. It’s great for our area.
We go to about 4 games a season. My wife, son, her parents and I are going. They are having a day for vets and a few different ceremonies. My wife's father is a vet, and the Patriots are giving free tickets to vets that day. The Patriots are also giving family members $5.00 upper box seats.

Why would you call today's forecast a bust? A tornado watch just means that tornadoes are possible, so having a tornado watch, but no tornadoes isn't a bust, per se, especially when all of the other impacts were generally realized. The area had 1/4-1/2" of rain everywhere, with up to 1" common in many areas and over 1" in localized areas and severe t-storms hit large parts of the area with significant hail (especially in SNJ, where 2" hailstones were reported) and very gusty winds, with some downed trees/poles and several thousand power outages.

I do agree with your skepticism on tomorrow's heat, though, as most of the models are now showing max temps tomorrow in the low 90s for the urban corridor and upper 80s well NW of 95 and, of course, the low 80s near the coast with sea breezes...and temps barely getting to 90F on Sunday for the warmest locations near/along the 95 corrdor from Wilmington to Trenton.

Maybe give it a rest. While there's oodles of comedy gold in that event, it's just getting threads locked and deleted, which serves nobody.

Well, then stop teeing it up to perfection. I didn't even want to rag on you.
