Just a few hundredths here at the house, but this morning in Clayton it came down so hard I pulled into a parking lot until the heavy rain let up. All the new median curbing they've put on Bus. 70 through town just makes the water pond up worse than before the 'improvements'.

It's been raining for most of the day here but light and somewhat on and off.  Only 0.41" so far.

Well, that escalated quickly.  Pouring now with 2.35" so far.  My Vantage Pro message at the bottom of the screen says it's raining cats and dogs.

 At 1055 PM EDT, Flash flooding will continue around greater
  Hickory as additional rounds of heavy rainfall overspread the
  region.  In addition, with rainfall totals piling up all across
  the unifour, flash flooding is likely to expand in coverage as
  well.  In several parts of the warned area, rainfall this evening
  has totaled as much as 6 inches, and localized additional one to
  three inches of rain could fall into the late night hours.

Some places could get 7-9 inches tonight with a pile more coming this weekend.

4.74" was my total for the day.  Almost all since 7pm. Still raining but I think I am about to get a break.

Fortunately, the rain stopped shortly after 1:00 AM last night. So, I now sit at 5.16 inches since the Big Wet Weekend began. That's already at the upper threshold of what some of the global models were predicting for the entire thing. How big can we go?

Went back out this morning with the lull in the rain to more properly clear all my gutters. I have never cleared gutters after midnight before (like last night), but I was really worried about our basement flooding with all the rain just draining right along the walls. Fortunately, none of the finished areas have any water influx, as of yet. The crawl space has some wet block walls (from where gutters were not properly draining) but no standing water. I think we're ready for round two now. I'm not sure how we'll hold up for rounds three, four, ...

Radar starting to show a nice little sit and spin action dead over the triad.  I dont think we're outta the woods quite yet Burnsie.  Thankfully I live on top of a hill.  Might hit 6" by tomorrow morning.

Good call. 6.17" here.

Lots of lightning firing in those cells from Athens to Augusta - moving NNE

 It's starting to get that firehose look, aimed straight at the mountains. Meanwhile, further north we've been getting on and off sun with CAPE rising. I'm dubious the northern Piedmont will be the focus for the heavy rainfall until perhaps later tonight, but any slow moving cells will have some fuel to work with.

At the moment lots of small areas of precip here but even those give heavy rain for 5 or 10 minutes before moving over. For instance, I just got 0.12" in about 6 minutes. It looks as if they are now beginning to expand and coalesce well before the already large areas of precip to the south move into the area.  Time to batten down the hatches for later this evening and tonight.
