MAJOR STORM TONIGHT
Up until 7pm the rain has been the primary focus here. The satellite loop shows the major storm developing along the Middle Atlantic Coast. It has completely absorbed Tropical Storm Philippe which is now adding extra juice to all this. Numerous Flood Warnings have been posted for New Jersey, New York City, Hudson Valley, Long Island and much of Western Connecticut.
The regional and local radars remain loaded and the heaviest of the rain is now sweeping inland from off the ocean with a few thunderstorms in the mix as well. We should easily double the rainfall totals so far which are pushing the upper end of the 1 to 2 inch range.
