Areas along the coast of Delmarva were pummeled with record rains from Tropical Storm Fay yesterday in addition to winds of up to 57 mph. For the trivia buffs among us Fay represented the earliest arrival of an “F” storm in an Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Tropical Storm #Fay left Rehoboth Beach, DE with some beach erosion and tidal pools. Nearby Lewes gusted to 49 MPH & Ocean City, MD picked up 5.47" of rain.

In Wicomico County the rainfall measured around an inch in western portions, to between 1.5 and 2.5 inches east of Salisbury.
Fay is not done with America as noted by President Trump. He must have misplace his Sharpie!
With Tropical Storm Fay heading towards the Great State of New Hampshire this weekend, we are forced to reschedule our Portsmouth, New Hampshire Rally at the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease. Stay safe, we will be there soon! #MAGA2020

Good. He can stay home and study his fractions!
Today will be calmer in comparison with a high temperature near 90 degrees and a chance of an isolated thunderstorm. It will be the start of an extended heat wave with a good chance that the thermometer will register in the 90’s for the next week and maybe longer.
