Awesome storm!  Best one in a couple years.  ALready 1.8" in 20 min. Big thunder & lightning, gusty wind.. some small hail. Slow moving too

I got 2.75” in a bit over an hour. Surprised there was no flash flood advisories issued.

Tonight’s storm just camped out over the Triad for well over four hours.  Intense downpour for half an hour then moderate rain for the rest of the evening.  I’m at 1.4” right now.  Most of the heavier rain was north and south of me, but I won’t complain.  Saves me from turning on the sprinklers this week.

We are being forced to choose between 70°, dark and drizzly for days on end or a heatwave and drought.  This switch is gonna flip later in June and we'll be begging for a break.  2020 weather is about as bad as the rest of the year so far.

Can we please dial up a week of 80°, sunshine, low humidity and a 10mph breeze?  This current pattern is just wrong.

Yeah I'd take that too.  Only problem is, low humidity is hard to come by this time of year.  

Edit, just saw TWC showing upstate 3 days of mid 70 highs and mid 50 lows starting next Sunday with NO RAIN! That would fit the bill and be a nice entry to June.

I just don't even know what to say about this incredible pattern we've been in for 29 months now. Just passed 2in for the evening and I'm now over 51in for the year. 

GSP now at 40.46.

It’s ridiculous! GSP is +20” of normal, since January 1st! This is the most anti-Shetley pattern, I have ever seen! No 130s in sight and we won’t need a tropical system to save us!

Heavy showers pushing through the Morehead area. Brief excessive rainfall rates. It will rain for 5-10 minutes and then go to completely sunny and miserably humid

After an NWS spot forecast this morning for less than a tenth of an inch of rainfall today here in north Hickory, the rain from TS Bertha is slowly winding down and almost out of here.  My gauge has measured 2.45 inches so far.  Now, that's a busted forecast.  :D

I had a small cell come through sometime after 3:00 AM this morning and drop 0.4” of rain.

The month of May was dry as a bone until the 19th.  I’ve had 10.5” of rain in ten days.

1.30" of rain here in Raleigh today. Came down in buckets this morning. I'm sure the vast majority fell in about 30 minutes. Good lightning and thunder too very early when that storm pushed through. Currently sun is out, waiting on next round. Some distant thunder too.

On and off rain today. Rains hard for a few and then sun comes out. Rinse and repeat. .27" so far. 74/72.

Had a very heavy storm come thru. It dropped an additional .77" on us for a total of 1.04" which has pushed me to 7.65" for the month.

About half an inch overnight.  My gauge needs to be resecured so it collect properly.

 

We've had nice regular rains this spring and the container garden is just exploding.  Only the stuff in the 3-4" pots has been requiring supplemental watering between rains.

Just picked up another .73" which gives me 1.78" for the day and 8.39" for the month and with an 80% chance of rain tomorrow, will I hit 9" for the month.

Edit: Ended up with 1.87" for the day.
