  1. Had to bail from the pool because of the thunder. Didn't rain a drop.
  2. 1.18” since the deluge on July 8th.
  3. Have a 5pm departure from DCA today. Hope they keep us in the terminal rather than have us sit on the tarmac.
  4. BWI was 98 which ties the record high 3rd hottest day of the summer at BWI and IAD.
  5. 97. Higher than most of the days in the heat wave a week+ ago.
  6. 93 at home and at IAD. DCA lagging again.
  7. DP in the 60s is a heck of a lot better than the mid 70s. Mid 90s is still hot, though.
  8. Ob: hot 94 for a high. Looks like 96 BWI, 94 IAD, and DCA brings up the rear again with 93.
  9. Great map here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/brianbrettschneider/2018/07/08/when-does-the-hottest-day-of-the-year-usually-occur/#67127324548c
  10. I was going to go with 16-day FV3 model output, but yours is probably more accurate.
  11. Zoysia is fantastic in the summer, but it goes dormant (brown) in the winter and takes quite a while to green up in the Spring. If you are ok with that, it is great for full sun areas. And it is so nice and lush.
  12. 18 didn't act like a nino, 19 is so far. That's what I get out of only the post you are quoting. The "less convection" in the Atlantic goes along with the traditional view of El Nino = less hurricanes.
  13. Rained hard - for about two minutes. 0.10”.
  14. I'm impressed at how well the meso models have handled this so far. The initial batch timing and location is pretty good. The rest of us should be looking out for later this afternoon into the evening.
  15. It has been to 94 at DCA. Got a 95 at my house. 96/90/95/97/99/95 is a good run.
  16. Quite simply, there is enough juice in the atmosphere that (as we saw yesterday) we are likely to see some wind reports. Even if this isn't a widespread severe day, I think they go with a box.
  17. Honestly, anything I would have would be guesses on the CCN question. You want active updrafts and ice to ice collisions. That certainly points to the environment taking precedent. There are studies out there about increase aerosol loading leading to more lightning, but whether that effect is major or minor I think is still uncertain.
  18. The rechargeable batteries on my anemometer finally gave out last night. So, obviously it is derecho time.
  19. I’m well on my way to 0.01”
  20. Looks like we are 100 at BWI, IAD, RIC and 99 at DCA
  21. CHO got there too. 100
  22. It is going to be interesting. IAD only had 1 minute at 100. I’m not 100% certain on this, but I think that they use a five minute average. It is possible that IAD’s high is 99. We’ll see if LWX tweets something or when the climo comes out.
