Rain Reports From The July 2 Storm

storm recap
Maryland Weather
National Weather Service
Severe

The severe weather outbreak on Saturday July 2 crossed Maryland with a vengeance. It carried intense lightning, large hail, tree damage, and extremely heavy rain. 

The Flash Flooding occurred in pockets, which is often the case. The result it often some getting too much while others claim they barely got a drop. 

Top spots were in the top of the Washington Beltway were OVER 5” fell on a few locations in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland!

 

 

Here is a recap of the rainfall reports across Maryland and metro Washington DC from the National Weather Service. I have cross reference these with Doppler Radar (zoomed in) estimated rainfall.

Preliminary Storm Report Map

There were a lot of damage reports.  Today is the day The National Weather Service will investigate damage to determine if there were any tornado touchdowns.

 

 



 

Gettysburg PA

This has gotten a lot of attention and may be top on the list to get explored today.

 

 

Large Hail was seen in this area up to the site of Golf Balls!

I do hope you were on my Facebook page to see this update Saturday evening when I realized what was about to transpire. I posted this at 7:30 PM

 

 

This radar loop from 7:45 PM to 8:15 PM showed the explosive development over Howard County to Baltimore City.

 

 

The Lightning Display of Baltimore City was only matched by Flash Flooding and Tornado Warnings even up to Cecil County.

*Disclaimer due to frequent questions:

I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos. I have made a few public statements over the years, but if you are new here you may have missed it:

I have dyslexia, and found out at my second year at Cornell.  I didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region. 

I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse. 

All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky. 

There is no editor that can check my work when I need it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline. 

I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me…

It’s part of my charm.
