Aside from a few showers and drizzle, there hasn’t been much rain so far.
Perhaps the only good thing about this storm is that the rainfall totals are expected to be on the low side and should be considerably less than what we saw with Irene last year.
The latest radar and water vapor data shows very little moisture across the area. In fact, dry air southeast of New England is trying to sneak in, which may help to keep many spots dry for the next few hours.
Radar shows the bulk of the rain south and west of New York City.
Do keep in mind that there is no radar data out over the Atlantic, so the radar image is a bit deceiving A period of heavy rain is still expected later on today and some spots could see flash flooding with that. Thankfully, any heavy rain should be short-lived, so widespread inland flooding is NOT a major concern.
