    Forecast for today is cloudy, but I've got full sun and it is STEAMY. We could be in for some heavy rains again -- I hope they stay away from my yard and give it to people that missed yesterday. Check out the flash flood warnings ongoing in the Philly area to central NJ -- some places have had 5" in a couple hours; one place had 3" in 45 minutes.

    Bullseye! Nice, heavy storm that dropped about 0.75 in 20 minutes, plus a few bolts. The best part is the temp went from 90 with lots of pollen to 71 and clean, fresh air. Damn NPZ, that is one heck of a rain shadow you have there. This shows how you only average 30-something inches a year while high spots to your west get near 60.

    Those storms firing in central MontCo just popped out of no where.

    Alright NPZ, no way you get missed by this one....right? That would be one heck of a Houdini act.

    Wow Silver Spring is getting deluged. I am watching Stephens City on Radarscope to see if that hole in the line fills in before it reaches there -- all those tumbleweeds might dry them up.

    Man you can really feel the humidity today! I am really hoping for a big lightning show later -- from LWX's disco: Frequent lightning may be a hazard given large areas of updrafts in the 0 to -15 C region, suggesting lots of suspended small ice particles (graupel) which would be favorable for excess charge separation.

    Yesterday's 0.5 put me at an even 5.0 for the month. Excellent rainfall amounts. Hope June is just as good.

    Raining hard and blowing in NE DC -- I'm gonna take a train 20 minutes later rather than get soaked. I have an umbrella but that's not helping on the First Street canyon effect. ** Oooh just had a ctg strike with thunder less than a second after -- must have been within a few hundred feet.

    Might get more of that t-storm that I bargained for -- it looks to hit right as I am on my several block walk to Union Station.

    My wife said it looked pretty wild in Germantown. LOL we get the rare strong thunderstorm and I'm not home (in DC at work).

    My sister lives in near Leonardtown, central St. Mary's County -- they have just a firehose of rain moving over them.

    Just wow at that train of rain from eastern Virginia up to the Eastern shore!

    You and I have almost identical amounts for the week -- it was much needed and perfect amount without being excessive, plus it was mostly spread out. The gardens are happy!

    Six straight days of measurable rain with a total of 4.3 since Sunday. I am begging for sun at this point! May 13 - 0.4 May 14 - 0.4 May 15 - 1.25 May 16 - 0.5 May 17 - 0.65 May 18 - 1.1

    It has been the perfect beneficial rain amount in Germantown, with 2.8" from Monday-Thursday (0.4, 1.25, 0.5 and 0.65). I am really ready for some sun though, and am kicking myself for not cutting the grass Tuesday evening before the rain came. It's 10" tall easily now. Sunday looks dry but we're going to be away all day and it might rain again Monday? I am really glad the Frederick area did not get more big rain last night into this morning.
