Ended up with .95" of much needed rain. All the pollen was washed away and the trees, plants and grasses got a much needed soaking. After 2 days in the high's in the 40's and after a low of 35 this morning, we are warming up. Currently 63/47.

Last time I was part of this sub-forum, I was just a college student. Now I'm moving back to North Carolina with red tag under my username and experience of two of most insane winters in my life. Gonna miss these crazy northern winters, but I'm happy to have warm weather again! A day in 70 F was nice to return to.

Picked up 0.70" yesterday. It sure rivaled any raw nasty day we've had all winter around here. Rainy, breezy and 37 degrees - warming to 41 when the rain stopped. Nice rebound today... Sunny, 68 and calm winds.

Thanks! I hardly recognize the whole Clayton area these days after being away for almost 6 years. So much growth!

I hope thiis doesn't become the theme this year...

The convection that developed over the Gulf
Coast and moved SE over the NE Gulf of Mexico, and now was
surging into the Florida west coast certainly has been disrupting
moisture transport into parts of the SE including AL and GA. Atlanta
has recorded less than 0.10 of an inch of rain thus far, and the
actual forecast was for 0.75 or so.

So, there is a bust potential today with the QPF. Not only is the
mid/upper level system weakening as it moves over us today, but the
Gulf Coast convection has been wrecking QPF.

Welcome back man. I remember you well. Where were you located during those insane winters? By the way, congrats on your red tag!

Southeastern New Hampshire near Dover. There was a stretch when I saw 43 inches of snow in 5 days. So... much... snow...

Thank you! Hopefully I'll be helpful providing my insights to this sub-forum!

Yeah I was forecast for .50 and all I've had is 10 minutes of sprinkles. Quite an underperformer for my backyard.

Give it a couple of hours and it will all be headed down the sewers.  Storms rapidly inbound.
