Pouring.

I feel this is the same old crap from last spring and summer ....rain, and more rain. Never just showers.   What was suppose to be showers has ened up with flash flooding here. 

Nasty day with the weeds already growing. I actually prefer a drought. 

If this were a snowstorm would underperform, of course since it is rain, its a flood, par for the course.

Went from 0.82" to 1.48" quick. Well now I am not happy.

I need to try another chair. Or bed. Or bowl of porridge. This ain't quite right.

1.98”

Still some light rain but probably not enough to get over the hump.

1.72” and still pouring.

This is a good example of what I keep talking about with the “new normal” for rain events IMBY. Once again, what should’ve been a typical 0.3-0.5” shower becomes a 2+” deluge for no real reason.

Same here. It is pretty bizarre.

This storm seemed more tropical than a run of the mill spring storm.

Mount Holly had a great discussion this morning, saying this had similarities to a PRE, similar the setup ahead of a tropical event. That low that was hanging off NC had some semi tropical characteristics before moving inland, and even though it weakened, it maintained a circulation and interacted with the front from the low well to the NW.

I read that. Probably why I said it. I’m not capable of an original thought.

It looked like a PRE on the models leading up to the event.  Shouldn’t have been surprised that it overperformed for 95 and East.

Imagine if this were snow...

Heard that 1000 times, right?  Well...

What a stinkin' rotten day to be outside!  Now it's all foggy and, well yuck!  So bloody muddy now.  Good thing we're not getting 50 mph winds after this.

It actually wasn't bad in Carroll county.  It was mainly drizzle and lulls . This morning it rained hard for 30 minutes then late afternoon.  In between I was able to wire up some outside flood lights.
