The CoCoRaHS network reported an astonishing 9 inches of rain yesterday in Ridgely, over in Caroline County on the Eastern Shore. Here are some other totals reported by the group:

Forecasters out at Sterling say there is more to come.

More showers and storms will cross the region ahead of an approaching cold front with another 1 to 3 inches of rain possible.
