Hot & Steamy Saturday

7/23/2010 Update:

Hoboken gets wet for a while; free fireworks

Tornado Watch Canceled – brutal heat & humidity for Saturday, though…

The brunt of our recent summer thunderstorm was to the north – But at around 9pm, Hoboken got a taste of wetness, wind and lightning as mother nature exited stage right. Here’s a glimpse of what it looked like before the brief deluge:

I’d bet the tornado watch is over for the night – but I could be wrong.


Conditions ripe for stormy weather in Hoboken

The National Weather Service issued a Tornado watch until 1:00am Saturday morning. New Jersey Counties listed on the watch were Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Sussex, Union and Warren.

A tornado watch doesn’t mean a tornado is imminent, but rather conditions are ideal, and stormy weather may occur in the watch area. What you really need to be worried about is when a tornado warning has been issued – which typically means one has formed and been spotted.

How this affects tonight’s St. Ann’s Festival remains to be seen – nothing is visible on the radar at the moment, except for a large storm over northeast Pennsylvania heading east southeast.

Tomorrow, a heat advisory is in effect, with temperatures hitting the upper 90’s – with high humidity – making it feel like well over 100 degrees. Stay inside with your pal “Mr. AC,” or head to your favorite swimming pool.

I wonder if there was a real destructive tornado in town – would Cake Boss Buddy make a cake out of it?

Have a great weekend otherwise!
