    Major Hurricane Michael

    9'+ is the estimate. Measurements are ongoing even today but are getting harder since recovery and cleanup work is happening as we speak and erasing the evidence.

    September Discobs Thread

    With the end of the month, last 3 month totals of 10+” are in the books Sept was 13.16” to go with 10.96” in August and 11.55” in July. Up to 64.57” on the year here in Clarksburg.

    After the 0.44” since midnight here in Clarksburg, I am at 9.99” of rainfall for the month of September. I am one light shower away from the third straight month of 10+” of rainfall. I also just pushed over 60” on the year and am now at 60.41”. Adding now that I’ve hit 10” while typing this. Let’s hope the wetness carries thru the winter.

    With the 2.14" yesterday, were up to 6.41", 1/3rd of the way through the month. We're well on our way to our third straight 10+" rainfall month in a row here in Clarksburg.
  6. Thanks. I don’t post that often but my background in remote sensing back in the day sometimes offers a slightly different perspective on the discipline. Some day, I’ll tell the story of my one day of OpMet experience....
  7. Likely, yes. Where I was on Parr's Ridge in far northern Montgomery County was the sweet spot for 70% of storms in the DC "metro" area. I think, though, the biggest disappointment will be watching a big coastal crawl up the coast hitting Maryland to Maine and I'm in sunny, cold subsidence to the NW of the storm.
  8. Move to Charlotte (just south of Burlington) is nearly complete. I'm looking forward to my first winter up here. DAS
  9. Many great gov and non-gov weather data sets can be found. Indexing of open data sets worldwide is happening post-haste so check back often for more. https://toolbox.google.com/datasetsearch Shout out goes to Ed Kearns from NOAA and my data.gov team for excellent MVP work with google.

    Here's the loop, saved here for posterity in case anything touched down. (edited to add, eh, every time I upload the .gif, it uploads all 13mb of the loop but only displays the first 600kb image in the loop. If anyone wants it, PM me and I'll e-mail it to you)
