Driving through it on the way to CVille... dumping in Warrenton with occasional lightning. Never gonna be used to morning lightning!

 

It is one of the things I miss from back home.  The overnight into the morning MCSs in the Midwest/Plains are awesome.

0.83” yesterday and overnight.

Same, we got those in Louisiana too. Feels like a dose of home, with cooler temps.

With the .90 since midnight, I am at 8.12 since Sat morning. 

Some crazy close lightning strikes earlier was quite jarring to wake to.

9.63" since Saturday. The storm that came through yesterday evening was electrified like crazy. I witnessed 2 trees within 200' of each other get struck by lightning. I was standing on my patio about 200' from the action. The second one (closest one) had me running for the door. Trees were sliding off the hillside that is along the road that I use to access my neighborhood. We were trapped in here by trees to the left and floods to the right. Wild day

Pity 60 second downpour as the bulk of the complex passed to my ENE.

Can I join your pity party? Nothing in my yard yesterday or overnight, although a few miles to my west had 4 rounds of heavy rain amounting to 3+ inches. The prospects here look meh for today, as most of the action should be over central MD and N VA. And I bet you get an inch+ today.

OK our luck in VA Beach has run out as we have a loooooong river of mod/hvy rain training right over us that looks to last all day.  My parents in Calvert have water coming into the finished basement due to a clogged gutter.  They fixed the gutter but the damage is done.  Hopefully not too bad.

Really shows how localized this storm is.  I'm not far from you, but "only" have about 6"

I got bullseyed big time yesterday. I was in DC when it started. It didn't get  bad until I got just east of Bowie. Then the sky opened up like wild.

Got bullseyed on the western front too in Germantown, can even see it on the total rainfall maps, a small sliver of MoCo with 7+" from that one portion of the event.

 

I'm at about 9" including that storm and everything since.

 

Reminded me of the flooding event I had in Baton Rouge, except it was basically 2 straight days of the worst parts of it.

Depends.  How much did you get Saturday?  Party is only for those who have received less than 1" since this epic period began saturday.

 

BTW, round 2 is passing safely to my west.  There is just as good a chance of me getting a foot of snow today, as getting an inch of rain.

I feel your pain. Water rescues and flooding just 25 miles southwest of me from post midnight storms, and I got 0.13" in my backyard during the same time period.

Just under 2.5" on Saturday. I guess I am out. :(

Didn't even realize it rained overnight but picked up another .9. I'm right around 7 inches through the past two days, though it remains to be seen if we will get much today.

12Z NAM is pretty tame through Wednesday.

Yup.  Happens every time.  First event over performs then the forecast get progressively drier as the event wears on.
