Record Setting Heavy Rain Sunday July 28th

I drove through the rain from Pt. Pleasant beach area towards Trenton, NJ yesterday. Rain was so heavy that I almost had to stop. Plenty of flooded roadways in the Flemington area.

Here are the official reports from the NWS. I “only” received 0.91” for the 24 hours ending at 7am this morning. About half of that was from the afternoon deluge:

The following are unofficial heavy rainfall observations taken
yesterday for the storm that affected our region. Appreciation is
extended to Highway departments...cooperative observers...Skywarn
spotters and social media for these reports. This summary is also
