Heavy rain and gusty wind continues for the Big Apple

Since 1 AM today, heavy rain and gusty winds has made up the conditions we see in tropical storms. Gusty winds reaching 40+ mph mixed with the heavy rain has been the problem all day today, especially in the morning rush hours for those getting to places around here.

Remember that roads become slippery, especially when rain first start to fall, leading to treacherous driving condition. Stay cautioned and drive slow. 10 mph slower than what's posted in the sign along the road it's the law here in CT.

2 days ago we reached temperatures nearly 80 F, now it's juts like of nothing happened, back to the chilly upper 40s and lower 40s not including the strong winds knocking those down by 5-10 degrees.

Right now in my area the temperature is 40F but the winds make 33F.

A wind advisory is in effect until early this afternoon for coastal locations along CT and all Long Island.

747 AM EDT FRI APR 12 2013
...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 PM EDT THIS AFTERNOON...

* LOCATIONS...COASTAL CONNECTICUT AND LONG ISLAND.
* HAZARDS...STRONG WINDS.
* WINDS...EAST 15 TO 25 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 45 MPH.
* TIMING...THE STRONGEST WINDS WILL OCCUR THROUGH LATE MORNING.
* IMPACTS...THESE WINDS COULD BRING DOWN TREE BRANCHES AND LIMBS.
DRIVING MAY BE DIFFICULT...ESPECIALLY ON ELEVATED ROADS AND
BRIDGES FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES.

Also some localized coastal (minor) flooding is possible in the low terrains, be on alert!

CURRENT RADAR

The rain is coming to an end as well for the Greater NYC area.
Take a look at the "pink" color above, some mix is expected far in the interior New England. High terrains in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine could get over half a foot of snow from Walda!

Note: We are expecting nearly 2" of rain from this passing storm, some places inland could get flooding from accumulating water, please know your surroundings. The ground remains mostly dry and won't get to suck up the water as fast as it comes from the sky, so some runoff is likely.

This rain, though, is very beneficial for the trees as we enter the transition into springing trees, plants and all vegetation. Just give it a little more time.

For the weekend, dry weather, temps rising around 60 with chilly night temps in upper 30s...cooler to the north/interior and warmer to the south of NYC.

HURRICANE SEASON CHART expect an update tomorrow in my upcoming Saturday Blog.
The closing is August 1.

CSU issued their forecast outlook, will be reflected in my chart as well, but won't we counted to the total add-ons. TWC/WSI, CSU and TSR are placed at the bottom...so take a look tomorrow.

Im still looking for new bloggers wanting to be included...spread the word!
_____________

Let Spring spring. Enjoy these times!
Stay clean and be nice.

Good morning Max, yeah, it was the first time we ate there, the couple we went with had been there once before. It is located very close to the big Fairway food market in Stamford that is South of the Thru-Way, in that industrial area that the city is re-developing. You go to Stamford a lot, you should try it. A good young crowd there, mostly in their 20's and 30's. Alot of cute girls working there as waitresses and hostesses!--Again, your art work is impressive! Also got another 0.10" of rain with that last area that moved thru last night. Total thus is 0.60"


yep..I know where the construction area is...

I see, interesting...

Thanks again...check my new blog this afternoon

LT - Im surprised about those underdone rainfall totals but if that is what we got then there is nothing we can do about it, I must say that rain was very beneficial for us here.

Never heard of the BBQ restaurant you went to, yeah I love ribs, especially the sweet ribs. I go crazy when I get those...lol

Hope you had fun!

Hi Max, I was out for the whole evening, went to the Dinosaur BBQ restaurant here in Stamford, really good for ribs, pulled pork and such, first time I went there. Getting back and checking out the blog, I was "blown away" by your art work, really very good. I'm going to show it to my wife and son over the weekend. I really hope you continue to draw/paint, create, as you have real talent. You should keep this up as your time permits. My son does it like that, he of course has a full time job which keeps him busy, but when he has the time, he paints, it relaxes him, so try to keep it up. Again, you are very talented.--My final rain tally was 0.50"(although it has been raining again for the past hour or so), this last rain area should be out of here in an hour or so, so I guess I'll have to up the totals when I get up on Saturday. G'nite for now , LT

Since WU hasn't put out hurricane numbers I'd make it either Wunderground Hurricane Forecast or Wunderground Community Hurricane Forecast, maybe shorted to WU on the list with CSU & etc... There is also WUBA (WeatherUnderground Bloggers Anonymous)...that's a name that has stuck to this community since the beginning. WU makes sense since Wunderground is unique as in it gathers data from the members like the PWS, this list completely embodies that sense of a wunderground product of it's members conglomeration.

Maybe make it look a little more Wunderground? I shouldn't tell you what to do with it.. I'm pleased alone you kept the numbers. It's a chore:) Thanks!

They said they'd look it over.

Whenever I put up the chart... look for something called
"WUNDERGROUND FAMILY HURRICANE FORECAST"

That is the ultimate average of all entries...

This is for Larry
(and for everyone else lurking here too)

Changing topic a bit...
I was going through some old school papers (saving good stuff and throwing away garbage)
I have in a portfolio all my art work for high school. I remember we discussed something about your wife's art class.

Click on any of the two for larger size if you wish
Take a look at some of these I did in my 11th and 12th grades. And I would like to have your opinion as well as your wife's. (the cam does not do a great job taking these, though, but I try), some other fellow bloggers I would like to have a comment from as well.



Description: (clockwise from top left)

1. A cross-hatch done on plexiglas, ran copy through 2 rollers onto thick paper.
It's a snowy day, you can see the street, driveways, some dry trees and houses.
Done in sophomore year.
Note: Think of this view as from looking through the car windshield

2. Mt. Vesuvius eruption in AD 79.
Look at picture below for better view and description.. This is my favor btw.

3. Mid-section of the Eiffel Tower, with some special effects. Black oil paint on glass and attached on wet paper... I hate that paint btw, very messy
did it in 11th grade

4. Colosseum, crosshatch with a funeral-like effect (meaning a rather scary feeling, take a look on the street lights). Also copied into paper...
My second favorite. Three weeks to do.
did it in 12th grade

5. A white on black still like with a death-like effect,
I used chalk for this one...very hard. Took me about a month to do.
Very hard to do...why? Looking and drawing, keeping in mind the proportions (not distorted/crooked, keeping scale)

6. Two sides of nature. Nice sunset on the left and a thundery night on the right.
Both kinds of weather connected by the wind blowing across.
It took me a little while thinking what could I do to connect both ends of the picture, but I figured it out.
I used charcoal and colored-chalk..did it in 11th grade



7. Vesuvius eruption.

I decided to make this pic be the main picture of my portfolio, it look me about a month and a half to do.
This material was like a big piece of black plexiglass and as you scratch on it, the white underneath shows up. Again with a scary-like effect, perfect for the occasion.
In the back you can see a triangular shape, the volcano and a big thick black upward line being the smoke and lava erupting.
Everything around the top half of the image are dark clouds, ashes and debris from the volcano.
In the foreground you can see the Roman Forum (some buildings/temples/villas etc.) and maybe some people there too.
Take a close look at the 4 edges, you can note a pattern there different from the inner areas. This picture is my best one done in high school, got an award during the art show we do here where all art students put up their work for everyone to see. My mom could not believe I did that.
I gave a second copy to one of my former teachers, (she was demanding one from me...lol) she loves Roman History, so do I.
I did this one in 12th grade

Yeah Max, I checked the precip. amount for Central Park, NYC, and as of 2:51pm today, the precip. amount was only 0.40". So my reading of 0.45" is right in the ball park. So the storm did under perform, in the rain dept. Looks like all of the precip. is just about over.

MA... Yeah, cold, windy and rainy...
expect some heavy rain bands over there...watch out for flooding

LT.. what? .45"?
I thought rain was ending earlier, however it's raining pretty heavy again here, look at the radar pic above, note how that band sneaks a little further north covering our area.. but it's also expected to end soon unless there is more somewhere else (I think that's all the rain)

Yeah, the wind advisory has been dropped, but some gusty winds continue here just like before when it was up.

Hi Max, I think this storm system disappointed a bit in rainfall . So far I've recorded only 0.45", and I checked on line for other amounts in our area, found Scarsdale with 0.43" at 2pm, so I believe my reading is correct. The wind, as you pointed out, on the other hand, did not disappoint, I had gusts to 38mph.
