January 9, 2021: Leisurely afternoon ride along the Skyline Drive this afternoon... chilly (34F) and windy. Lots of ice along the road and esp. over the entrance to Mary’s Rock Tunnel.
Appreciate the new weather radar map, but the old map made the areas, and intensity of precipitation much easier to discern. See comparison screenshots
45 mph westerly gust at 1703 hours (per Accurite weather station); eastern Allegany County off exit 72 - west side of Sideling Hill; spotter AL110.
Will Baltimore really service Garrett County ? Pittsburgh areas do get a different weather than Balt/DC, but we share most of it. Most of us in GC do not & are not allowed to see Balt/DC area TV! As we are mountains & hills, Sat TV is how we receive our TV! The FCC requires all Sat TV in GC must come from Pittsburgh channels. So, if there is a Tornado watch in Pittsburgh area that could also hit us, how will we know? Who made this new move!!! CRAZY!
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.
Photos a neighbor took during this afternoon's storm(s); Little Orleans area of eastern Allegany County. https://www.facebook.com/100000697376761/posts/3362319940467885/

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.
Siding damage from measured wind gust of 51 MPH. Belle Grove area (.75 mile south of I-68/exit 72; eastern Allegany County, MD).
