4" otg as of 1.45 pm so we're at 4"/hr rates the last 30 min which is close to the most I've ever seen. If this somehow keeps up even at "just" 1-2"/hr for a few hours we'll get 8" or more!

Was clear for quite some time this north fronto band would be nuts. If only today's north trend could've gotten it 30 miles NE. 

Philly's WSW is in the pooper though I think. :(
