For a lot of areas, most of today's thunderstorm activity has stopped. However, we still have some weaker thunderstorms moving through Long Island, NYC, the eastern Hudson Valley and Fairfield County.
Below is a look at the change in surface CAPE in the last three hours. As you can see, CAPE is rapidly decreasing, which will further cause any thunderstorm activity to weaken.
I originally thought that if the sun could pop out, instability could rise again, and thunderstorm activity would resume, but this doesn't look to be the case. I still think we could see a few more thunderstorms when the cold front passes through, but nothing widespread or severe.
Around the area we saw several reports of damaging winds and hail. In my location, I had hail the size of pennies with many areas reporting larger. Heavy rain was perhaps the most damaging effect of today's severe weather. In my location I measured over two inches. In Monmouth county, 2 to as much as 4 inches of rain fell. Outside of the coverage area, there was a report of 5.5 inches of rain in Cumberland county. Some of these numbers may go up tonight.
