Last night a mesoscale convective system rolled through the eastern part of the country affecting IN through DC and NJ. In NJ, three people died, two children camping when a tree fell on them, and a fisherman in a boat near Absecon. 190,000 left without power in S NJ with 2million between NJ and WV. Storm lasted maybe 2 hours or slightly more with the hardest part hitting SNJ just after midnight. Winds up to 89mph were recorded. Radar estimates 4-5 inches of rain.
Separately, an interesting feature off tx this morning. Lets see if NHC is on it?
