Morning heavy rain more than I forecast.  What happened?

OK I admit it.  My forecast late yesterday of a chance of a few showers was a bust.  Look at today's rains around the DC area.. The rain gauge at Ocean City is flooded and must be broken. 

ZZZZZ

 

Yesterday there was a weak weather front near us and the air was super humid.  Look at the surface map from last evening. 
ZZZZZ

 

 

What looked like just a little weak wave coming our way, got stronger overnight and the large area of rain spread in during the early morning hours and even led to some Flash Flodd warnings.  Not the greatest forecast I have ever made and here is a recap of what happened.

 

 

Promise to make today's forecast more accurate :>)
