    I was watching the lightning show from Columbia on Saturday evening, 9:00ish. It was flashing at a quick rate off to my W & SW, but storm traveled SE-ward toward N-ern part of DC. Nothing more here than a distant light show. Temps in MBY ranged from 78 to 96 on Saturday. Sunday morning low as of 6am is 79, pretty toasty for the 'burbs.

    A little cell popped up to my south over the Fairland area on Tues evening about 8:00. Reached MBY on east side of Columbia just before 9:00. 15 mins of ground-watering rain, about 1/10". But a great lightning sky show as the storm verrrry slowly moved NE/ENE-ward from Laurel. It looked like the most intense part of the cell went over Laurel, Ft. Meade, Jessup and Savage .... and eventually MBY got clipped as a small "arm" from the cell grew NW-ward to over my 'hood from the main cell. It would not surprise me if the west side of Columbia and Ellicott City saw nada.
  3. Best storm in years IMBY in terms of wind + rain. Started with a bit of T&L but then just pouring sheets of rain for a solid 30 minutes and quite windy for a solid 10-15 mins (it felt longer). Tropical storm-like during the 10-15 mins of strong winds. About 3/4"-1" rain. Temp dropped from 84 to 71 during storm.

    Yeah, saw that. I just hadn't seen the Twitter map online anywhere. Just curious.

    Is this map (daily?) online anywhere else other than NWS Twitter feeds?

    1.69" rain IMBY for this event so far, compared to 1.74" at BWI for the entire day 3/21. DCA 1.96" for 3/21 but IAD 2.69". 3/21 hi temp was 48 IMBY. 3/22 low temp midnite to 6am today was 40, but temp back up to 41 at 6am. Looks like an active day today!

    Have only measured 1.3" here so far and 3/10" of that has been in past 1/2 hour. Got a new rain gauge so maybe it's not so accurate (?), or maybe am just in the dead zone for this system.

    1 lightning flash and 1 brief rumble. Temp has fallen about 10 degrees to 56 as front moves thru with brief hvy rain. .09” so far but it seems to be moving east and away now.
  10. Down to 34.7. It's wet but closing in on a bona fide dusting, not quite a full-fledged coating yet. Some pine trees are holding a little snow now.
  11. Temp has fallen 0.7 degrees in last 30 mins to 35.3. Slight whitening of just some grassy areas. Deck has minor white pock mark stickage.
  12. Steady wet snow past hour, 36 degrees. Some stickage on mulch, flakes trying to stick a bit on deck. Roads and sidewalks obviously just wet.
  13. I'm in Culebra, Puerto Rico (an island east of mainland) a few more days -- 75 at 7am AST, 81 in afternoons. Fresh east wind 15mph+ all day. Sunny. Probably will have a big storm since I'm missing it.
