Heavy rains fell throughout the metro region yesterday, with amounts generally in the 1-2.5” range from east to west spanning Prince George’s county and western Fairfax and Montgomery counties. West and southwest of Fairfax county, isolated locations saw around 3” or a little more. Capital Weather Gang’s forecast for 1-1.5 inches in the metro area with locally heavier amounts to the west was pretty close to correct, albeit a little conservative. Where our forecast went wrong was in the snowfall department.
