  4. OOPS, meant to say flood warning. But for the usual trouble spots such as S. Glebe Road and the I-395 underpasses, makes not much difference. And WTOP just announced that Columbia Pike is underwater at S. Greenbrier.

  6. Getting half-pea-sized hail near Crystal City.
  7. Have both the DCA and USGS gauges for Four Mile Run broken?? I've been lashed with rain in Arlington, but not a scrap has been reported.
  8. So far, DCA has picked up 0.94" for the event. USGS at Four Mile Run just now is starting to record some new precipitation.
  9. The silly weather radio keeps beeping me. At least LWX appears to have dropped the habit of whooping at me.
  10. USGS indicates the gauge at Four Mile Run in Alexandria picked up just about 4 inches of rain. It almost hit flood stage, but is back down. DCA picked up 2.62 for the event.
  11. Can't SOMEBODY please tell NOAA radio to quit referring to Fred as Frederic?? Frederic was 1979.
  12. Severe thunderstorm watch for DC area now announced on NOAA radio.
  13. NOAA radio just announced the 100F at IAD is a new record for the date.
  14. Got half-pea sized hail in Crystal City.
  15. Basically everywhere east and south of the Mason/Dixon line and the Blue Ridge, all the way through the Eastern Shore.
