I need everybody in D.C and the Delmarva to buy an industrial fan and strap it to a helicopter, and turn them all on at once so we can get a D2 MOD.

Here's my contribution!

And look at that, some showers showing up now with maybe a bit of Zeus'ing going on! ;)

Speaking of fans, we do have a bigass fan, 18' in the main hangar.  Had to run it nearly WOT due to humidity!

Nasty-looking bow heading into Clarksburg area.

Yeah looking pretty bow'y, any reports from that guy? 

Nothing on CAD or our DOT feed. Really surprised. It came through Reisterstown as nothing but heavy rain. Radar looked a lot better than ground truth.

404, severe not found. ;)  We were in a yellow box.

Torrential downpours, max wind 18 mph, some lightning and thunder.  Heavy thundershower is what we call it.

Tomorrow is the 3rd ENH for this area so far this year?  Can you call drizzle and fog enhanced?  Oh the moss is growing on three sides of our barn.  Now that is definitely enhanced! :)

Reflectivity looked great in that bow shape - but velocity scans were consistently underwhelming. I was struggling to find anything of severe magnitude even on the TDWRs.

     I don't really understand why the line was so meh.    The 00z IAD sounding isn't bad.     Maybe the CAPE is a bit tall and skinny, and deep layer shear is marginal, but I would have expected an organized line like that to have a lot more wind.
