Rain underperformed


#1

We were getting dry in central MD. All the forecast maps showed us getting about 2 inches of rain from the remnants of Delta.

We got barely 1”. Per the radar, it’s almost done. I just had a feeling we were not gonna get as much as the forecast said this time. As it approached on radar, I just didn’t see it.


#2

Not sure we even got a measureable amount here. I wouldn’t have minded an inch or so.


#3

Forcast for about 2" here in Arlington, VA. Looks like a hair over 1.5 based on my rain gauge with a little remaining drizzle. It was a good steady soaking rain overnight, so I was glad to get it after we’ve gotten pretty dry over the last few weeks.


#4

My part of Howard County, MD seems to be drier than almost everywhere else the last few years.

It makes no sense, and has not been historically true. I don’t get it.


#5

Got a couple of inches here, nice slow soaker. Only downside is my tomatoes cracked.


#6

It was a nice, slow soaker here, too. It just didn’t add up to enough.
