the legend of the dc split continues.

Well, you may rightly think that the DC area gets missed by severe weather in most years. I have been playing a severe weather game on a different forum. Do you know how many points I have gotten from Washington DC and nearby cities this year? Tons. I hit the day when there were 3 tornadoes in Washington, plus I hit 2 or 3 or 4 other big days where the hail and wind reports came in by the dozen(s). One day I picked La Plata MD because it seems to attract (F5) severe weather. That pick worked out alright, I think I got about 10-15 hail/wind points.

Looks like some heavy rain is about to come into Leesburg VA. I see 60 dBz on composite reflectivity there at Middleburg, VA.

in general, this is a moderate place to live.  winters are rarely extreme.  summers are rarely extreme.  storms are rarely extreme.  we're a jack of all trades here, but that's what i like about it.  pretty good mix of everything.

the leesburg stuff looks like it has potential for the dc-bmore corridor.
