  1. Heavy frost and 30 degrees here, several stations showing as low as 27 nearby.
  2. Yeah, the ground that had dried up is wet and with standing water again and we have a training event moving northward into southern MD again.
  3. The skies are dark west and south and the sun is almost breaking through overhead. Lol. Good thing this inversion held.
  4. So will we have a chance at additional storms after this first wave runs northward through the area? Seems like the best shear is coming in behind this.
  5. The storms along I64 started this morning down in North Carolina and have been moving northward steadily since then.
  6. 80 F and 64 are the current temperature and dewpoint from my Kestrel 4500. Still plenty of sunshine ongoing.
  7. 2.38" for the day, 1.5" since midnight
  8. Charles County Scanner confirmed tornado on 234
  9. I had 10.5 inches of rain in August......have had over 10 inches several times in a month here previously.....let's have at it.
  10. 2.94" last night from the two storms and 10.44" for the month of August.
  11. The track of Fred is shifting east with each update. Trouble if we get soaked ahead of it this week.
  12. 4.41" last night. Thankfully the ground was dry here prior to that deluge.
  13. Power already went out once, lots of CG lightning and very heavy rain. And we are at the western edge of the boundary that has set up.
  14. This tornado in central Pennsylvania, fortunately did not impact anything. The motion was quite strong. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ctpSKYWARN/posts/910450359510524/
  15. Today was not just about sunny skies and having the most CAPE, thermal gradient boundaries, and outflow boundaries from last night's storms played into this if one is looking for supercells and the higher end severe weather. Sure if we all had an extra 2 hours of full sunshine and the regionwide CAPE was 500-1000j/kg higher then today would have been different. That isn't realistic in this region.
  16. This certainly lived up to expectations within the region from Philly to south of Fredericksburg VA, even if it did not in your own backyard.
  17. We have broken skies here in Charles County and even less cloud coverage further east and south. Already 1000 to 1500 MLCAPE east of DC, so we aren't in terrible shape. But the MCS rain shield over Ohio looks to head straight for DC area.
  18. The enhanced risk area shifted further north, the MCS rain shield does not look to be decaying much at this time.
  19. Thanks for that placefile Eskimo Joe. Should come in handy.
  20. This little supercell that just passed over west side of Alexandria is hooking pretty good near the Rt1 exit /WW Bridge. Winds are sub severe but frequent gusts.
  21. Haven't been down to Clearwater since the 1990's but remember the first and second visit vividly. The causeway that leads out there is very low. The first year I visited, there was a tropical depression offshore and the water was up to the shoulders at road level. Second time I was there, from Clearwater beach the GOM was as calm as glass and that was a truly impressive sight. Goodluck with your chase WxWatcher007.
  22. Elsa has really slowed down just east of Jamaica. Now only moving at 12 knots, as per the 5am NHC advisory.
