    Bamber got soaked last night. Heavy, heavy rain. Pumps on overtime in the basement. I'd like to see a total rain scorecard.

    It was really pounding down here last night, lots of wind too. About 3 inches of rain here, they only forecast one inch. The NWS updates their precipation website sometime around noon IIRC.

    Manasquan and Metedeconk rivers are approaching flood stage. 3+ inches overnight. Northern Ocean county has flood warnings. At least all of the leaves that were due to fall are finally down.

    More rain tomorrow.

    ...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH LATE MONDAY
    NIGHT...

    The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a

    * Flood Watch for portions of northern Delaware, northeast
    Maryland, New Jersey, and southeast Pennsylvania.

    * From Monday morning through late Monday night

    * Moderate to heavy rain will move through the watch area Monday
    through Monday evening. Areas within the watch received 3 to 4
    inches of rain Saturday night into Sunday and area creeks,
    streams, and rivers are all running high. Additional, heavy
    rainfall may result in more flooding across the watch area.

    * Leaf clogged drains and coastal flooding could further
    exacerbate flooding issues. River flooding may continue into
    Tuesday, well after the heavy rain has ended.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
    current forecasts.

    You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
    Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
    prepared to take action should flooding develop.

    ...Accumulating Snow Possible for Portions of South Jersey
    Today...

    Accumulating snow is possible from mid morning through late this
    afternoon across portions of southern New Jersey. At this time,
    the main impacts are expected to be along a narrow band in
    southeastern Burlington and southern Ocean Counties. However, a
    small shift in where this band develops could increase the impacts
    and snow amounts further south and west. Therefore, there is a
    potential for accumulating snow in Atlantic, Camden and
    northwestern Burlington Counties.

    Impacts and snow amounts could vary greatly over short distances.
    If driving within these areas today, please exercise caution for
    rapidly changing conditions. Slippery road conditions are
    possible. In bands of heavier snow, visibilities could be reduced
    as well.

    Just measured four inches out in my yard - everything is white outside. Quite a change from the half inch in the forecast last night. Has stopped for the time being, but it's still swirling around offshore and hard to tell if more is still to come.

    Out and about today had snow from Forked River south, heavy at times. Here we had a couple of bursts, but nothing to write about.

    This image shows water as opposed to snow totals, but the heaviest snow was mostly in Atlantic County.
