Showers and Storms Possible Late Tonight

By Ian Livingston

Flash flooding is biggest concern; More storms tomorrow?

* Flash Flood Watch Through Late Tonight | Weather Wall *
* Full Forecast | San Francisco's Summertime Stratus | June Rain *

We caught a break this evening as showers and storms, for the most part, did not materialize. The Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued earlier by the National Weather Service was canceled and just a few isolated showers popped up. Another batch of showers and storms currently in West Virginia will likely (60% chance) threaten later this evening or overnight -- especially in the southern suburbs. The major concern with any storms is flash flooding as the ground remains completely saturated from all the recent rain. When it's not raining, it will be mostly cloudy and humid overnight, with lows near 70.

Could today be our respite from rain?

Unless the showers develop right on top of us, perhaps a bust for significant rain today for the district. Did we shoot the gap or am I jumping the gun?

I think it's pretty safe to say this first batch is underproducing based on previous thoughts on today (from most or all sources). SPC issued a statement on the watch that severe odds are somewhat mininimal.

Please tell me there are signs of an end to this wet pattern in the foreseeable future! I don't think I can take an entire summer of this!

Can someone point me to online resources for looking at area rainfall averages by month /year.

I'm pretty curious how this year's rainfall compares. Not sure where this could be found.

You and me both. Constant rain has become mind-numbing.

Current conditions: 67.6F and light rain on the Blue Ridge east of Front Royal

We just got a shower from the earlier wave this evening.

A bit more intense activity looks to be nearing Charlottesville heading NE.

@HenryFPotter & ThinkSpring

The extended forecast discussion charts seem to show a large Canadian high pushing the frontal boundary way down south to Florida by next Wed. or Thurs., giving us our first extended dry spell in quite some time!

[Let's just hope this pattern holds up and doesn't melt into another rainy mess like last week.]

I rather enjoy the rain during the day. It's the evenings and nights where the rain can come to a halt.
