Nothing like seeing a shower on radar aim directly for your back yard 20 miles out, getting distracted at work, then looking out your window wondering why the ground is bone dry only to find out the shower did a fantastic juke and is even stronger than it was when you last saw it on radar.

There’s two strong storms northwest and southwest of me that I’ll probably go right between unless something fires up in the middle of them before they get here.

Hit squarely with two solid cells today in NW DC. Gotta be an inch from both... ground can't really hold anything more it's becoming a lake.  Solid shelfie too.

No shelf, just a gradually weakening line moving in with some thunder. Still some pretty cool looking clouds with rain shafts in the distance.

That line of storms connected and now there is no gap. Looks to be pretty strong, but quick. I’ll take it, whenever it gets here.

left the house around 4 to pick up mini-map from daycare. took a different road home than normal and found a shelf cloud, then raced it home before it hit.

If we have to have hot weather, I prefer it happen like this year. A mild to chilly May and July. A very humid and somewhat above normal July, but nothing record-breaking, most not reaching 100.  A wet and mild August. Now, cross your fingers September doesn’t pull nasty heat out of the late season bag of tricks. 

We are ripping two gardens out for grass and re-seeding. I'd like a 10 to 15 day stretch of warm, dry weather in September to get the seed started. Hopefully after that we can get into a 'normal' autumn.

How much, if any, energy from that southern trough will be able to eject northeastward to give our area some rain chances towards the weekend? This would be a much more interesting discussion if it were winter, in what would be a favorable NA pattern, with confluence to our NE. The suppression fears would be real.

Another early morning thunderstorm.  Feels like the 20th time this summer.  Way more than previous years.

Where did all this rain come from. Looks like another rainy morning on tap here in the rainforest. 

This, plus a stalled front across the area.

Over the past 30 days average dew point has been 73.7 and humidity 86.3%.  

Mosquitoes should be the size of small dogs by now. I've seen condensation on the outside of my windows a good umber of days. And they are double-pane gas filled. Definitely was surprised on the additional 0.22" of rain I got this morning.
