Ridiculous. I really need to move. Don't understand why it's so dam hard to keep the 80s around until thanksgiving.

Move down to Austin TX where I live. We have 80s past Thanksgiving down here and we wont even break a sweat. You need to move. In Austin we can have 73 dewpoints IN JANUARY for a couple of days.

This place is Subtropics heaven, lol. Some people mow their lawns into Christmas. I've seen grass get 8 inches high down here in midwinter. There is no winter down here lol.

With the radar blossoming, I'd say Michael has the advantage right now, but I can't wait for this dang front to pass.

The front is going to win/winning, but there has been a noticeable uptick just east of 95. Lots of lightning suddenly popping up.

The serious stuff is never going to make it past the Beltway from the southeast, is it. I can see lightning, but the oranges on the radar keep fading right before they get to me.

How did you get so lucky to move to such a magical place?

Anybody else catch this tidbit from the afternoon LWX disco?

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
High pressure from the central U.S. will migrate eastward and
build in over the region on Friday and into Saturday, bringing
more October like temperatures to the region. A sharp shortwave
trough and upper jet will move over the area Friday night and
into Saturday morning, giving us another shot at showers.
Higher elevations along the Potomac Highlands may even be
greeted with some wet snowflakes given 850 temperatures do drop
below freezing. Conditions will trend drier the second half of
Saturday and into Saturday night with mainly clear conditions
and slightly below normal temperatures. We may finally get some
frost in some of our western zones Saturday night.

I read that earlier today.  I was there a week ago and it was 80F.  I chose the wrong week.  SMH.

4.5" of rain here in VA over the last 7 hours, forecast to go for another 3 hours.

I just moved here a few months ago. I grew up in San Diego and this is the most rain I have ever seen in my life.

Lots of heavy rain, about 3.5", and winds have howling. Sustained around 30 mph with gusts anywhere between 45 and 58 mph. I am 25 miles south of Richmond. Lost power at 8:15 pm. Michael is putting on a show here. Too bad it had to happen at night.

DP now down 9F.  I keep going outside to check the weather; it's like during a snow-storm.  LOL.  

WELCOME, OCTOBER!

Yes. Gorgeous out here right now. 63 and the air is getting drier by the minute.

I think you might dagger our see-saw precip battle with this one.

3.97 at 10:50 and still rain overhead. I did not think any of us around here would get close to 4 in. Especially not me. I am the Giancarlo Stanton of tacking on useless stats. It never rains or snows when I need it to but I come through when there's not much on the line.
