    The problem with this kind of storm setup is that there is a lot of heat/moisture to fuel the storms, but the triggers are very subtle. Unlike a squall line or supercell where movement can be counted on, these cell just kind of ooze around and then die out. So, putting up a warning box is especially tough. The storm last night looked really healthy, and 30 min late it was remnant clouds. Nature of the beast. Not to mention, the areas that get hit by severe conditions are almost always very small.

    Triple point boundary collision right at the bend of 495 in Annandale. See if anything comes of it. Great Falls getting hit. Again.

    Three straight 95+ in later August is pretty good.

    There is an AI yoda that posts warning text to cover down times.

    Back to 97 for the 3:52pm ob. Chance for 100 is shot, but we were either 98 or 99, which is a big number as we get into late August.

    Got the W wind to push us up by a tad. DP down to ~66. Tied the record, might as well try to push for triple digits.

    DCA 97, now 1 shy of the record. I think the river is finally warm enough that the winds aren't really hampering the temps.

    99 on the tarmac at BWI. New daily record high. 95 at IAD has tied the record.

    Putrid is my observation. Summer needs to end.

    A bit surprised at the size/shape of that box.

    Is next winter looking like a disaster?

    Yeah, the Philly game has more snow, but Vikes-Ravens had the insanity. Just sad that Baltimore had the ball last.

    I know we have another half hour to go, but I’m starting to get a bit skeptical about this model projection from earlier today.

    19z HRRR is good for entertainment value. Probably still too much near Burke.

    Fairfax City looks like the place to be.

    2019 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx - General Discussion

    It has weakened some since hitting IAD flush. Winds are weaker and the other rain indicators are less. Still a nice cell, though.

    That thing is putting down a ton of rain, too.

    2nd lightning hit that affected the electrical. Up to 0.7”

    Rain and lightning and thunder. Good summer storm. And there was a nice 5 second power outage.

    The heaviest rain is headed right at me, but I’ve been fooled before.

    Should at least be raining and thundering there. No idea what it’ll look like when it gets to me. Sitting on the front stoop watching the light show is pretty good though.
