My backyard is the border for West Springfield (the big power lines), so eastern Burke :) 

I was driving home from Fairfax City this morning hoping to cross Guinea before Long Branch rose... lotta anxiety during that 20 minute drive!

Sounds like you're pretty close to me. I'm in Burke, relatively near Burke Road and Rolling Road. Not far from yoda.

Yup, I'm off of Shiplett, maybe a 500 feet north of Old Keene Mill. Wish I had a view of Pohick Creek right now.

Nearest PWS's are around 6" for the day.  Given all the road closures, etc etc it seems about right....

Looks like the odds are increasing for a mid-month heat wave.  GFS and EPS seem to concur.    

Also,  bake those Western Atlantic SSTs even further.

Easily the heaviest rainfall I've ever experienced...pictures coming out of various neighborhoods in Arlington was pretty crazy.  Roaring rapids video was nuts along Four Mile Run in Shirlington at the dog park.

I'm surprised actually at how few posts there were last night . Majority of short range guidance showed the big total potential in some spots in central Md  and I remember before bed Hrrr was obviously way underdone esp western suburbs around 10 PM  or so. Pretty extreme ff event for some . Here in Eldersburg area. There was some minor stream flooding and water on roads but nothing major .At home ...probably about same 

probably because it was sunday of a long holiday weekend.

.68 for the day, 3.7" since thursday IMBY

The Huntington Levee (Alexandria) had its ribbon cutting on June 15 and consequently dozens of homes were saved by it this morning when Cameron Run reached 11.8 feet this morning.  A 10 foot rise in an hour. 

Previously, 9' was when some homes began to be impacted and 11' was when "dozens of homes in Huntington are flooded. Water affects businesses near the Route 1 and Fort Hunt Drive intersection."

People texting me left and right... as far as rain storms go it was pretty good, but not catastrophic like I'd expect with all these texts.
