Philadelphia received over an inch of rain from storm, whose center tracked to the south and eventually west of Philadelphia. Isabel was a tropical storm by Friday morning over Pittsburgh, PA, and strong southeast winds in our region were pumping tropical air into our region in its wake. Temperatures, which were in the 60's for much of that Thursday, jumped into the mid 70's early on Friday AM and we saw a very tropical day in the wake of the storm.
One fatality from the storm in Warren County, NJ, was reported in the National Weather Service report on the storm.
