Tropical Storm Fay has come and gone, officially becoming a post-tropical cyclone on Saturday morning. Fay was the sixth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season and made landfall along the New Jersey coastline Friday afternoon. Fay is now quickly moving to the north, away from the United States. No additional weather impacts are expected in the U.S. from Fay's remnants. Fay brought plenty of heavy rain to the region, particularly along the coast where some rain totals approached seven inches. In addition to flooding, Fay and its associated storms caused wind damage in the region. The dots in the graphic below represent reports of either flooding or strong winds.
