The dry slot was  the end here. Maybe a half inch of additional accumulation after about noon. In retrospect, I really dislike that storm (as much as you can hate on an underperforming 15" event), and that entire torch of a winter sucked.

Easing into bitter mode.

Yea that storm was a bust really east of I-95.  Really was a shame that it melted off so damn fast.

There was one cold day after it fell before temps shot up into the 50s and 60s and the snow went to granular slop. Could hardly get out to enjoy it. The best part of that winter was tracking the event for week.

Goes to show you how dead this summer has been that we're talking about a snow event from almost 3 years ago in August...lol

Yes the lead up to the event was good.  That was the last time a blizzard watch will ever be issued from LWX since the product was discontinued.  If you were in the usual snow favored spots of our area it was a solid event, especially up towards Frederick and Washington counties.

Some peeps are going to get dumped on today. Big cloud tops already.

Yup...big CU field in western Carroll County today.  Classic sign of a humid airmass.

Holy crap - a storm popped up pretty much right over Towson to north baltimore and is just sitting. Was dry here - but now it is not. Wow.

I can see that storm from New Windsor.  Pretty robust CAPE today, but the lack of a organized impulse and shear will mean it's all about mesoscale features for initiation.

Parts of Baltimore city and close  surrounding areas have had a few decent pop ups the past few days . They could use it for sure 

We really could use a 1 - 3" all day soaking rain.  We're edging pretty quickly toward D0 / D1 status.

Just starting a dry period up here . The past 10 days .35". We need an old fashioned August coastal or( preferably tropical:) )

Yeah seriously...this one actually bullseyed us, lol Kinda reminds me of the one last week that bullseyed the central part of the city (although unfortunately not strong enough for hail, it seems)

SVR now on the Baltimore City cell.

So I drove out of it to pick up my wife at the airport - as we drove back into downtown from bwi could see some wicked cloud to ground strikes and then as we circled onto MLK drive we hit hail and some winds that shook the car. The hail looked penny sized bouncing off the hood of the car. Pretty sure that was what the SVR warning was for.

Poured rain for about a minute at Nats Park at the end of the 3rd, apparently, but here, about eight blocks away, nothing. Bright sun now, though, so hopefully some more to come.

Picked up over an inch of rain here in a rather interesting storm. At the end poured with bright sun out. During the storm vivid CTG lightening. 

I believe Elkton, MD.  got it very bad. In that area the storm was warned. Awesome cloud images as well when I was driving home.  Got lucky with this rain, did not expect anything today. I had already watered the garden this morning.
