Had a very busy workday and didn't know we had yet another big t-storm rolling in.  It hit pretty hard with some 50-ish wind gusts, lightning and rain blowing in sheets.  The purples on Radarscope were just north - I wonder if there was hail up there.  Looks like about 0.7 more added to June's rich coffers, which now stand at 7.9 inches.  Wow.  Also dropped the temp to a nippy 62.

And have received barely any rain over here on the east side of Baltimore over the last couple of weeks lol

*** weather.gov/spot open request status ***

Hello, this is a Pending Request notification product that will remind you
to deal with pending requests within your service area on the
http://weather.gov/spot/monitor/?wfo=lwx page.

Below is a list of incidents that are in request pending status and
may need a forecast.

You are getting this notification for one or more reasons detailed
as follows...

1) You may not have received the STQ product for this/these incident(s),
   because of STQ transmission issues on the web farm/TOC. First run
   Change Request on the website to attempt another send of the STQ
   product. If that does not work, then run the Manual options in
   Spot formatter. Open TOC ticket for transmission issue.

2) Certain messages state that you are minutes, hours, days late in
   filling a forecast request. If a valid request, then I would post
   a forecast. However, the customer might have entered the wrong
   forecast deliver date/time. If that is the case, then run the
   Change Request link on website and fix it. Otherwise delete request.

3) Certain messages state that you have up to x minutes to complete
   the forecast. If this is a valid request, then work on the forecast
   and try to meet the deadline specified by the customer.

4) Customers occasionally submit multiple requests for the same
   incident, instead of using the Change Request functionality.
   If you only need to post a forecast to only one of the requests,
   then delete the request(s) that will not get a forecast posted to
   it.

5) Customers may have unintentually run "Copy Info into New Request
   for This Incident" or the "Request Forecast Update" link.
   You do not want to delete such requests,
   because forecasts have been posted against the incident. If the
   incident is finished, then Archive the incident. Otherwise,
   edit the incident and sent the deliver date/time to when the next
   forecast is needed.

6) Customers occasionally submit illegal requests on the website,
   like for a private prescribed burn. In this case, just delete the
   request.

7) If it is a test incident generated by someone in your office,
   then delete the incident. No need to generate a forecast for this
   incident.

The line broke apart earlier this evening as it crossed into Garrett County from WV (which was fine by me since I had just started the grill).  Wound up with 0.01” today.  

Currently 58 after a high of 75.

@yoda - Spot forecasts are often requested by places like the forest service or local fire officials for fire weather purposes. However, I think they can be requested for reasons that would require a specific small-scale forecast. Ex: something that might require a precise knowledge of wind direction/speed etc.

Outside of the 0.8" last Sat, nothing here for 2 weeks+.

Soil is parched, other than where I constantly run the sprinkler in an attempt to save my patch of decent grass lol.

     great catch!    If you look at the Tropical Tidbits 24h precip maps, it looks pretty clearly that the site is accidentally aggregating 24h totals, so I think it's a plotting error (or an error in the grib2 files) and not a new "biblical wet bias" in the new version.

       Thanks again for posting this.    Tropical Tidbits has now corrected their plotting error as of the 18z cycle today.

Much more muted ULL signal, but the signal is still there. Also models don't have it hanging around as long as previous days' model runs. It'll probably hang around for a day or two, slowly moving east before it accelerates OTS.

Beyond that, the huge Canada ridge looks to flatten and retrograde south after the 5th of July bringing more return flow and possibly plenty 90s

Ugh!  This is NOT the weather to be using a clearing saw on the tree line.

Feels pretty damn close out there to me. Don't have to move much to sweat like a pig. Luckily there is a decent breeze.

87/70 here.

It's all relative :D...I'm used to working outside alot at my job over all these years....many many days 90/ 75 + so low mid 80s  with dews 70 or less is not bad at all especially with some clouds here and there .

Up here in Timonium, clouds have really kept the temp in check or at least what it feels like anyway. It’s a bit humid but it is tolerable.
