LWX's failure may be in part to the actual disk it rotates on failing. A crew from the ROC in Norman will be out this weekend for a real diagnosis, but this is complicated by the fact that ROC personnel are also trying to rebuild from Lake Charles from the ground up simultaneously. In my opinion, given the fact that we are edging out of peak severe season and have 4 terminal Doppler radars (5 if you county Philly taking care of LWX's extreme north eastern part of the CWA), Lake Charles should get preference.

What I found interesting is that this failure occurred right after an upgrade or other maintenance. Assuming it's just a coincidence. 

Lake Charles should DEFINITELY get preference. Is there some sort of contingency that allows them to work on multiple 88Ds at once? Rare case but what if a major storm took out 2 or 3 radars in short order. I guess it's a personnel numbers type thing - can't imagine there's a ton of folks able to do work on radars. 

ETA: This failure probably guarantees the event of the season on Tuesday ;)

This is going to be the second system in a row where the rain we get is from remnant tropical. The third event in a row with a tropical connection (There was tropical moisture from 94L on Sept 10th). There have been four storm systems (including this one just starting to affect us now) to affect us this month. Of those four systems only the first system (the one that gave some of us severe weather on September 3rd) did not have tropical connections. 

... Man... I REALLY need to work on my grammar...

Hopefully you all understood what I said.

0.60" here so far.

Getting heavy downpours now. Wasn't really expecting this. even though most of the mesos yesterday did show a half inch+ here, the latest NAM runs backed off and had the better rains to my west.

Official forecast was a tenth to a quarter.

The remnants of Beta behaving more like an Alpha here.

0.72" with another heavy shower rolling through.

Hopefully its about done. It would be nice to salvage some of the day.

Day 11 image not available

As wet as it looks this week, and with the last section of grass germinated and coming up, I think my sprinkler will be retired for the year. If your yard somehow gets missed again, I will overnight it.

Recording a T for last night.  16 days since the last measurable rain here above a T.  Looks like that will probably end next week but a heck of a dry stretch.

Fall color has started here on the margins....greens are dulled and the deer are freaking everywhere.  

The fall smallmouth bite is on as well.  Here are a few pics from the other eve while fishing the rapids...up river from Harpers Ferry.  7 smallmouth and 1 walleye! Love this time of year....

Is that total since July or just this month? 

That's September lol.

Each of the last 3, if not 4 months have been significantly above normal.

Yet another super wet month here, going back to at least July.

8.68" to this point.

.60" September 

Euro fwiw brings a 998 low right over central Md Wed so that should deliver some rain:yikes:

My area got nailed earlier in the month from multiple training t-storms with a frontal passage. Flash flooding with 4"+. 

Most places on the central/upper shore are probably 4 - 5" for the month.

From 430 AM to 630 AM. it really came down here. Really surprised by over .60 inch of rain.  Seems as the norm, dryness does not last long, at least in this area. Glad to hear you are going to retire the sprinkler. Farewell my good friend.

I was using it the past week to water my newly seeded areas, as it had not rained for a week. No need for that now.

The LWX radar is the "worst case" scenario - it's the bull-gear. They won't even be discussing next steps until a joint meeting on Monday. Thereafter it looks like the radar is going to be down for a minimum of a week - but likely longer.

CTP's radar is also offline - but based on their status message it sounds like that'll be a brief outage once parts arrive.

Wow, that’s impressive.  You basically live on a bog now.

Well I do have a seasonal wetland on the back part of my property, but it is only wet when the water table breaks the surface in late winter and Spring.

Otherwise my property is high and dry. With shorter days and cooler temps, the soil stays pretty moist, which is always a battle here during the summer no matter how much it rains.
