Alan's Weather - 08/15/11

The weekend turned out pretty much as expected on Saturday, although there was some increasing clouds during the afternoon with sunshine fading. It was a pretty nice day, but Sunday was one for the record books. Some incredible amounts of rain fell across the Garden State yesterday.

For example, in Burlington County, Mount Holly had 3 inches, but that was paltry in comparison to what other locations had. Blackwood, Camden County had over 5 inches. Mullica in Gloucester County had just short of 9 inches. Lawrenceville, Mercer County had over 5 inches. Carteret, Middlesex County had a little over 6 inches. Aberdeen Township in Monmouth County had just short of 5 inches. And Elmer, I think might be the winner in Salem County with just under 10 inches of rain.

Yet, by the same token, the south coast, the far south coast near Atlantic City only received about 1/3rd of an inch of rain.

Today, some showers and thunderstorms will be around with temperatures in the upper 70s to perhaps low 80s.

And the threat of a few showers will be around tonight tomorrow, and we should finally dry out by Wednesday.
