If you don't like weather stories, don't read them.
Nobody is panicking. But the derecho should have taught you something.
Actually, a few years ago there was a massive torrential downpour in Silver Spring, MD that wreaked havoc on the morning comute. Those of us who were unfortunate enough to have to walk to college from the metro were completely soaked by the time we got there (even with "waterproof" clothing and umbrellas), and we had to deal with some pretty serious flooding. Also, we later almost got stuck in a tornado while at college.
So for those of us who actually get off our butts and go places (unlike you, I guess), these weather articles are very helpful.
As I'm reading that chart at this time, we're in the "slight" risk area. As far as I'm concerned, that means use common sense like you would on any other very warm day and keep an eye out for developing storms.
I'll believe it when I see it on radar.
the check the radar now lol
Here we go again more sewage in the streets of "The Nation's Capitol".
