I live in HdG and filmed an hour’s worth of a fata morgana on the bay off Concord Point. I have a lot of footage and was wondering if anyone would be interested in seeing what I filmed. I wonder, too, whether any one else reported this phenomenon. I also would like to know the best resource for looking up the profile for the area. I’m very interested in the data.
Did you all get rid of the experimental precip onset time maps that used to be a part of the winter weather section? I can't seem to find it. Also why is the current "expected" 6-8" and the "high-end" also 8" for Middleburg? lol
What's wrong with the new "so called radar" system you guys have forced on us? it takes for ever to load, it's of poor quality, and it won't load on some of my computers. Zooming out or in creates large square boxes of missing data that don't refresh and go away. If I'm on my laptop, I can't just go back to the previous page and check out some other feature of the weather, as there are about 20 or more pages there to crawl through. I can find absolutely nothing in the way of improvement regarding the new system. What's going on?
Nothing about Staunton, VA.? As a spotter who lives in Rockbridge, the next county to Augusta,I really wanted to know what the rain rate and rain total was over Staunton last night. US National Weather Service Baltimore/Washington
Whoever is preparing the high and low forecasts for Roseland, VA, ZipCode 22967 needs to do much better. For example, the forecasted highs for this week are in the mid 70's, but the actual highs will be in the upper 90's and increasing to triple digits later this week and into next week. Someone needs to go back to weather school.
Fist sized hail came down in the storm in Annapolis MD on 7/1/20 about 4-415pm. Lasted about 10 minutes. The storm itself took about 40 minutes to pass.

Is Columbia MD going to get some of the severe weather or no?
Sleet in Columbia, MD. Has turned back to mostly rain with the lighter intensity now.
