Winding down now.

1.52"

Best electrical storm I have seen in years. Amazingly only one brief power blip.

Admiring radar over your area. Incredible !!!  Missed the bulk here but precip totals South of me are 2 inches and over.  

Put those sprinklers into storage .  The rare AM electrical storms are lots of fun !

Even the end of next week looks to be rather wet according to Mount Holly's  long range outlook. I tend to think if this pattern continues maybe over seeding can commence earlier  this year, rather than after Labor Day, as  @CAPE mentioned .  I keep reading that as the Country dries up  drier weather may settle into the East on a extended basis . However, this change seems to continue to push out further and further into the future.  

 

 From Mount Holly AFD :

  Looks like the late-week period may be interesting, as the front may stall near or in the area, with deterministic models showing multiple rounds of convection occurring in proximity to it. Certainly a heavy-rain threat from a pattern recognition perspective.

Add me to the list of people that got a early wake up call from the storms. Definitely some of the better t&l I have seen in some time.

I am approaching 7" for the month here already. Mosquitoes have been a non issue so far due to the spring larvacide, but starting to see a few now, and those late summer tigers may become a problem. Could use a few days with no rain lol.

I am going to start reseeding this weekend. I will do it in sections, and hopefully have all of Sept-Oct to get it established.

From the NYC thread. Check out the drop in SSTs since the tropical storm. Will need several weeks to get them back up .

Convection over RIC / Williamsburg may be choking everything off.

That whole area really is a mini-tornado Alley. Swear every storm that comes over the mountains rotated at least a little.
