    2019 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx - General Discussion

    Just drove from Calvert back to Germantown and saw quite the lightning show to the N and E. Not a drop for the drive though. While in Calvert this afternoon, I watched three storms train just 2-4 miles north of us over about an hour. It was nice because we were able to sit out and enjoy mid 70s and a breeze instead of 90 like we had dreaded. When we drove through Dunkirk (northern Calvert) on the way back, there was a thick fog hanging in the trees like a rainforest. They must have really gotten drenched.

    Looks like very light/calm winds on Sat so it'll get warm (but at least not super-hot like Sunday). You'd have loved a steady S or SE breeze -- I've seen it 85 in Crofton and 60-something in Annapolis with that breeze off the bay this time of year. Enjoy the wedding.

    I got 2.7" over last weekend and have 4.7 for May so far. I really want some warm, sunny weather to get my flower garden going that I planted last Saturday. My vincas and marigolds look unhappy and my tropical milkweeds are just sleeping.

    Got 1.4 yesterday, total for May of 2.0. I just planted a bunch of flowers and it was MUD! I hope they live but I don't want to wait for some unicorn dry period. This is the last 365 days -- isn't our normal rainfall about 40-45 inches per year? ENOUGH!!!

    Nice thunderstorm in Germantown -- about 0.42 in 15 minutes, lots of lightning, and a brief gust to 45-50. Sun is back out and the air is fresh.

    Nice pictures! What's that in the fourth one? I don't see it in the third.

    Don't have my rain gauge out yet but man we must have gotten about 2 inches. Got the daughter and one other kid at the bus stop because it was hitting hard right then and there was some lightning. I was surprised to see how many kids had no umbrellas.

    Alright I take it back. POURING here with alot more to the SW moving this way. Decent amount of lightning with the storms in VA.

    That's because I canceled my mulch delivery and yardwork for the SECOND Friday in a row due to rain. I rescheduled it yet again for next Friday so we all know what will happen.

    LOL. A whole week of build-up to this "severe" event. Not even a single rumble of thunder.

    2019 Mid-Atlantic Severe Wx - General Discussion

    That's what I get for scheduling a delivery of six cubic yards of mulch and a landscaping crew for my gardens this Friday. Damn wedge tornado will probably suck up all my mulch.

    Great Falls, MT was 18 degrees below average for the month of February, and is running -30 for the first 14 days of March. Can you even imagine?! I think DC's coldest ever might be -11 or -12?

    March 8th Light Snow

    0.8 here at Rt 355 and Rt 27 in Germantown. Remember the great March clipper of 1999? I cannot believe that was TWENTY years ago today. Wow time flies.

    Moderate rain and 33. So nasty.

    The March Long Range Discussion Thread, Winter's Last Stand

    This part of LWX's disco gives hope for something next weekend. I hope we get one last hurrah. The bigger threat for a storm really comes later in the weekend. A strong upper-level trough will traverse the US around the end of the week leading into the weekend. Surface low pressure will form in association with this upper-level feature. Meanwhile, a strong high pressure (~1036 mb) could be in an optimal position for a cold air damming setup across the forecast area. You put these two things together at the right time, along with a potential secondary low forming along the east coast, and there could be winter storm potential. This is way too far off to really get specific at this time, but this is certainly something that bears watching.

    The 2019 Sun Angle / Spring Monitor

    After this cold week coming up, I hope we get a massive SE ridge for the rest of March. I am ready for spring. I started dozens of tropical milkweed seeds under lights a few days ago. The monarchs will be happy with me this summer.

    First few tiny flakes in Germantown, 38 degrees. I don't have a weather station, but nearby Gaithersburg reports 37/25 which should give us a little room to drop. The dews in VA are terrible.

    One of the main reasons I left Calvert County. That place could be demoralizing in winter sometimes.

    The March Long Range Discussion Thread, Winter's Last Stand

    Agree. I'm sitting at 28.4 which is almost twice my median of 15, and got a 12-incher which I consider a big storm. Good winter for my area. But I know there are many on this forum who have had a real stinker. It would be great to have one of those long-lead time coastals that gets everyone. Hoping for something next weekend before the pattern flips.

    Wow you're like 5 miles from me and I have pure rain and 33.

    March 1, 2019 Light Snow Chance

    Glad they didn't -- next one might come off the already shortened spring break. They couldn't even have done a 2-hour delay because it's a half day -- either opened or closed.

    March 1, 2019 Light Snow Chance

    Same deal in Germantown - measured 1.9 inches. What will really suck is if we get rain and 33 tonight, more cold rain Sunday night, then super-cold and dry for a few days as currently predicted. I hope the SE ridge sets up shop after next week and stays for the rest of the month.

    Oh what that storm could have been with a better track. In Calvert, I got 5" then a flip to rain and spiked to 50 degrees.
