With the remnants of what was Hurricane Ida approaching the and passing the area, it brought all sorts of extreme weather for this area and the entire region, really. Flooding all over the place and some tornadoes were the main features.
With the remnants of what was Hurricane Ida approaching the area then interacting with a cold front right in our area tomorrow and tomorrow night certainly look to be a mess. I don’t know if it will be right here In Mount Joy, but where everything set up, there will be a lot of rain.
The year of 2018 was a year of major flooding here in Central PA and Especially Lancaster County.
Tropical storm Fay was pretty interesting to watch. It never got strong, but it brought heavy rains to the southeast.
More heavy rain on the way. We’re back under a flood watch, too.
It looks like we’ll be in for some heavy rain and minor river flooding. I got woken up last night by howling winds.
It was around this time in 1972 that the remnants of Hurricane Agnes impacted the area. I’ve always been interested in that storm. The storm made landfall over Florida on June 19th and then moved northeast and weakened to a tropical depression. It became a tropical storm again over North Carolina and moved made another landfall near New York City on June 22. It produced 6 to 12 inches of rain in Pennsylvania.
Earlier this afternoon it was looking good for strong thunderstorms to move in. A nice line had developed to our west but we ran out of daylight and heating by the time they got here. Just some rain and not even any lightning or thunder. Well actually there was a bit of thunder and it seemed like a storm was going to move in but then the thunder stopped and the sky brightened.
