Looking at reports around the area I was surprised to find 1.51” in the rain gauge at 7am. About .20” since.

The creek is as high as I have seen it this year so far.

My cloverfield needs mowing. Too wet. Mosquitos have begun to emerge. Need a dry period to spray. Pollen is glopped all over my jeep, but futile to wash it until we get a few dry days.

This event has not produced much here yet, not that I am complaining. Just over a quarter inch so far.

Same here despite the favorable jet region, and high PWAT not really impressive.

We are ahead of last year at this time in terms of rainfall and moisture.

I hate to think about the dews in June to early Sept. ugh !

Yeah this event has been weak sauce here. Hopefully it moves its ass out of here quickly so I can get outside and get something done this afternoon.

Right. I was clearly referring to just April. Everything remains historically wet from the previous 16 months up my way. If it didn’t rain much for two months that would be fine by me.

Back edge on the move , expect some hard downpours as this baby pulls away.

Soil moisture super high I would bet, looking at the next 7 days to our South and West.

You could wager May is going to be normal temp wise, and above with precip.

 

The - NAO a beast right now, with another possible down cycle and the AO looks to stay negative for a while. Crazy....

What do you recommend spraying with? (Briefly,  without getting too off track)

0.76" since midnight here.

0.29" yesterday

2.79" so far today.

I drove to Martinsburg for church this morning and there was running water everywhere, with large parts of the back roads underwater.

If you mean the chemical, Malathion(Bonide). Instant kill and somewhat more selective than other insecticides- wont kill bees etc. as long you dont spray directly on flowering plants. It does not leave a long lasting residual, but the objective is to kill every adult you can NOW and stunt the next cycle. Just be sure it doesn't rain for a few days for best results.

I have a backpack sprayer with a 2-cycle engine. You can use a pump-up garden sprayer if you don't have a lot of vegetation to spray. I am in the woods so I need serious hardware lol.

Oh wow, cool.

I did mean the chem though. Sounds effective.

Looks like about 1" in the normal gauge here so far. The electric Davis is stuck with a pollen/crud clog again.

Stopped for now, but looks like some scattered showers will move back in shortly.

Solid shield of rain moving in . I bet its 9 or 10 PM before it backs off.  My Vp2 is clogged so not sure total but creeks are pretty high here

Yeah it has really filled in nicely on radar compared to when I made that post. At least there was a break so I got out for an hour to pull weeds. Easy when the soil is saturated. :D

Not really lol. I have plenty of weeds and its futile to try to control them. They grow prolifically. 

I just have "certain places" I don't want them. Driveway, mulched areas, etc.

55 here and pouring.

Considering I had less than a tenth of an inch of rain for this event when I woke up early this am, the 1.15" currently is pretty impressive. It is also enough. Ready for it to end.

 

eta- looks like the total will be 1.4"
