OK, so last night we had a heck of a series of bands of rain, sleet, and 60+ mph winds rip through NWPA. Fortunately the last week was dry and the ground had some time to stablilize from the really wet conditions or last nights storm would have done more damage. Had to do some minor cleanup today and we lost power twice last night and once this morning for just a few minutes each time. Did anyone else have bad storms in the Northeast?

Them graphics showing where the cone may travel are very misleading. Marco entered the Gulf of Mexico and almost immediately began breaking up from the dry wind shear coming from the southwest. The eye of Marco is heading north-northwest towards Louisiana, but the rain component has broken off heading almost due north.

That rain component has been striking our area of the Florida panhandle for the past two days. But that dry wind shear is really impacting the rainfall as it travels north. Over the Gulf of Mexico, the rain storms are quite heavy, but as it crosses the shoreline it dries up to almost nothing. Yesterday, we got around 0.01 inches of rain and today just a little bit more of 0.12 inches.

That is a good thing as my house is tarped awaiting the installation of the metal roof.
Hope they get it on before Laura jumps on in there!
