Anybody know where this radar indicated rainfall basemap comes from?  Did LWX do the smoothing themselves?  The only spot I know is https://water.weather.gov/precip/ and the detail is pretty low.  
Does anyone have an online resource they can recommend? 

 

 

Idk but the amount looks accurate for my house.

I think that is MRMS data that LWX plots, but don’t hold me to that.

I will say that there is a big fat 1.49” over my house and I got 0.51”, so there are still resolution struggles.  I really just prefer CoCoRaHS. https://maps.cocorahs.org

Dewpoint still in the muggy mid-sixties. Shouldn't the real front have passed through by now?

The reinforcing cold front is moving through currently with a few showers. Dews will drop sharply through the day today.

I was going to say you are probably low on refrigerant, but didn't want to clutter up the thread with more banter. If the first tech, who said everything was ok, did not break out gauges (connected to the outside unit) then he would never know if everything is "ok". That said, the lack performance of the unit should have been a red flag to that tech. Also, you should NEVER be low on refrigerant because it is a closed system. Low refrigerant = Leak (as you now know). It sounds like you are now on a path to having A/C that works properly. You should back charge the previous tech.

Obs...

Decent amount of wind prior to rain. Not sure on rain totals but not anything incredible. Almost no thunder or lighting. Though I can here some thunder in the distance.

Per the norm... I see the the pasadena rain hole developing in the pic above. Not only do I get to enjoy a precip hole during the winter... but also the summer.

I need to move.

Yeah I have no idea how the first guy determined we weren't low on refrigerant.  This guy hooked his pressure gauge up and was like duh it's low and he sniffed out a leak in the coil. Luckily it's under warranty so I just have to pay labor.  At work when we have an unplanned shutdown we lose $3M worth of refrigerant each time. Doh!  

 

Sorry mod, just wanted to close the loop, last mention of AC problems here.

Thank you so much for informing me about the shower, it was awesome to watch them with the new airmass in place. Also was the first time I’ve seen a shooting star and they are so cool.
