A beautiful day today.  Everything I look at continues to indicate a major East Coast storm forming late Saturday and bringing the area significant rain through Sunday.  Right now rainfall of 3" or more to the east to 1-3" toward the Blue Ridge is likely.  Some areas north may get 4" and possible flooding by Monday A real dought denter if not buster.  Washington's rain deficit for the year is still over 5" so the chilly Sunday rain will be welcome.  The storm will be rapidly intensifying Sunday with gale winds likely along the coast and cold north winds in the DC area.  Behind the storm chilly winds will linger into Monday.  Get the lawn mowing and outside work done Saturday and hunker down Sunday
