July Discobs Thread

Recommended Posts

Rain rate has fallen to 1"/hour. Sitting at 6.5". Probably will end up with 7" on the day, more if the yellows sustain on the back end.

 

Most rain since I've moved here. Downright tropical amounts.

That Cameron Station Huntington area floods out every 10 years or so.

5.23 so far. Woodbridge  va. Creeks caved a few hours ago and the woods behind the house are inundated with 1 or 2 ft of water. Could be higher now but it's dark I can't see.

A very stormy night with east-facing windows getting hammered with 40 or so MPH gusts. Trees swaying like crazy.

73/73 and 2.09'' of rain and counting.

I literally would spam this forum if I kept posting water rescues but they are coming in ALL over the region. I’m above 7” now in East Germantown, multiple PWS verified.

 

Rain still very steady.

My yellows are turning to green. So I'm ending with 4.80 according to my digital rain gauge.  May pick up a smidgen more I guess.

I think that'll do it for DCA too. I always hate it when a rain event goes over to the next day.  Yes, I'm anal.

Good night!

Over 5 here by now. 

Electric gauge got clogged and I cleared it a few hours ago, so I have to estimate until reading the normal gauge again tomorrow. (Which was 2.72 at 2100L)

Even so, it's reading over 4.5, and Dr. Davis says it's raining cats and dogs.

PWS's range from 5-7.5" in my area. Two 7+" stations within a mile of me.

 

Rain is still coming down too. Germantown is getting shellacked right now.

 

I'm going to sleep. At this point It'll never end and I'll just assume everything's gonna be ultra flooded tomorrow.

For a stratiform rain event (no real instability) in July, this is a anomalous event by all measures. 3 to 8 inches region wide (sorry NPZ) is huge
