5:22 PM: Don’t let the sunbreaks fool you. We’ve had hail (or some form of icy precipitation) within this past half-hour, and now a loud clap of thunder. The forecast for this evening does include a “slight chance of thunderstorms.” An overall ongoing chance of showers continues until Friday.

9:13 PM: The weather’s calmed a bit – still raining off and on. Added a photo by Jerry Simmons, pre-dusk rainbow sighting.

10:30 PM: Two more photos – this one by Theresa Arbow-O’Connor:

    Last night was more than a chance of rain it was Torrential Rain Coming down about midnight.  I thought it was going to come thru the roof it was raining that hard.  Very cold as well last night.  When oh when will we really get some nice Spring Weather?

      This IS nice spring weather and we desperately need the rain.

      This has been a gorgeous spring, with more sunshine than usual.  IMO, this weather is PERFECT.  According to some forecasts, this could be a hot, droughty summer, so we need all the rain we can get right now.

Sorry, comment time is over.
