    I've fallen for that one b4. I usually check my nws forecast. This past spring summer the setup is always been: forecast sunny next 5 days. Then you get 1 maybe 2 nice days, then the it's all showers/rain (5-7 day forecast). Usually going into the weekend! My conspiracy theory is that the interns are running the models in the weekend and, when the Monday crew comes in, all forecasts are revised.

    Last sunday/monday rain was 1.68". In before this line of storms hit

    Got a really dumping of rain around the lunch hour here. I missed it as I was at work. Looked like your basic yellow cell on radar, but my rain gauge said it dumped .80 or so. Also, the city drain is loudly gurgling water so I know it was a lot. Or, it's probably saturated rain that has to go into the Cheasapeake. Total over this 2 day period is 2.36".

    Last night's T&L and rain show gave me roughly .5 inch. Rain gauge said 1.52 this am.

    1.02" from Florence remnants thus far. (although a mini train moving up from the SW) Also, on of the TV mets had the Euro calling for a lot of action for our area today vs. the GFS that had all the action staying in the mountains to the W. Looks like the Euro won.

    I've only heard the Euro and the American models being referred (at least in the media). Which has a better track record for this type of storm? Obviously, no hurricanes this season, but can we go back to last year's performance?

    Has not rained since my update above. Nothing coming up according to radar. Time for a rain total update. Since that big rainstorm that developed Friday pm, I've gotten 4.08". Went from 4-5 high heat index days to this monsoon. Wish Mother nature would throw in some 4-5 days of low humidity cool days between these extremes.

    1.98 and no rain for the past 1.5 hours. Good demarcation point for a later update.

    Peeking ahead, most of the Florence rain could hit our area next Saturday/Sunday. Coincidentally, those are the days I don't have to report to work

    Mets can correct me on this but the rain line SW of DC proper shows clearing behind it (radar). Maybe the end of rain? At least the 'moderate' rain variety.

    Spoke too soon. Picked up roughly another inch. now at 2.10. The yellows have moved out. Had the whole enchilada: rain, thunder, lightning. Lighting was more cloud to cloud. Earlier, it was more hitting the ground. There was a cell that developed in my area then that blob from the S SW overtook it. I checked DCA when this 2nd round started and they were already at 2". Pretty sure that they picked up some more. It's a rare day when DCA logs more rain than me.

    Total damage here was 1.15". Went outside and lots of cloud to cloud lightning and distant thunder. No more rain, though.

    Picked up 1" in about 30 mins in S. Arlington.
