The remains of Tropical Storm Barry drenched the Northeast on Monday, after riding up the Southeast coast Sunday with gusty winds and heavy rain.
On Sunday, wind gusts along the coast were measured at 44 mph on Cape Fear, N.C., and heavy rain was noted throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coasts. The heaviest rains dropped more than 4 inches of water in some locations, but these amounts were mostly limited to very small areas.
Rain associated with this former tropical system fell all the way north into Upstate New York where Rochester and Buffalo saw some intense thunderstorms. New Jersey and Pennsylvania received steady rain for most of Sunday.
More intense storms formed in the Midwest. Southern Michigan was hit with thunder, lighting, hail and even a couple of tornadoes. Twisters touched down in northern Illinois and southeastern Michigan, though no damage was reported.
Another line of thunderstorms moved from eastern Texas into Louisiana causing some wind damage.
Temperatures in the Lower 48 states Sunday ranged from a low of 28 degrees at Leadville, Colo., to a midday high of 102 degrees at Needles, Calif.
