An astounding 0.11" of rain and a distant rumble of thunder.  All that's left is this dying line of storms over GSP now.  Second bust in a row this week if this peters out.  It's been rockin' east and west of here.

While it's not in an ideal radar location, it looks like tight rotation and weak TDS (maybe) west of Saratoga.

Cell east of Milton looks good as well, just lots of activity but very few reports so far.
