was driving my jeep in the middle of the monsoon around 8pm. we must have gotten at least an inch of rain in the half hour it was pouring. i don't think it's capable of raining harder than it did.

I was too. Storm decided to go all beast mode on me as I was walking to my car from the pharmacy. Drenched within 10 seconds.

Picked up 1.27" of rain in ~45 minutes, with a peak rain rate of 5.65"/hr.

yea i didn't expect it based on the radar before i left, but the storm just blossomed across the potomac.  not a ton of lightning, but it was present.

1" exactly.

Was driving earlier and rate this top 15 worst driving rainstorms ever.  20-30mph speed on beltway, few gusts to 40, very dark, some swirling clouds, lots of moderately deep standing water.

 

i passed over 495 and noticed it was backed up along the 270 split.  it was not an easy drive.  could have used another extra speed on the wiper.  the windshield on jeeps are raindrop collectors.
