Looking at weather.com's hourly forecast it seems to be letting up just a bit in this area too. We're still to get quite a bit of rain but regular wind speeds won't go over the 20mph range, and after 14.00 tomorrow the chance of rain stays below 50% for the rest of the day. We might even be able to get the Mets opener in tomorrow, as long as the ground isn't too waterlogged.

I remember being at Nats park one night right when the gates opened and there was a real frog strangler coming down that lasted until scheduled first pitch time.  There was a just 45 minute delay and the field played fine.  I was amazed at the drainage properties of that field. 

On the other hand, the field at the AA park in Richmond...it just has to be cloudy for the outfield to become unplayable...  ;)

The forecasts I am seeing do not inspire great confidence for tomorrow's besbol game being a go.  Water polo perhaps.

Looks like Florida dodged a small caliber bullet.  The storm has been losing intensity and may miss the OBX entirely...

The Fashionable West End of Henrico County is battening down the hatches for a good, long rain storm...with the first wave starting this afternoon...and continuing much of Tuesday.
The storms always seem to turn away from the east coast of Florida. At least since Andrew. Must have heard about Floriduh Man.  Hardly rained at all in Orlando. Less rain from the storm than normal
Summer showers.

decent line of thunderstorms hitting us now in western PWC.  Looks like on and off t-storms the rest of the night, then Isaias gets here in the morning.

Isaias is only a category 1 hurricane.  So not as bad as some other hurricanes.  OBX and eastern NC may get tornadoes tonight though.  The right side of a hurricane path can get tornadoes.

It managed to get up to 85mph sustained though it’s not a very big storm

Winds are heavy now, but sun is shining.  No damage I can see anywhere as we walk though our residential streets.  Only 1-2" of rain so far.  Not much more expected in OBX.

weather.com now calling for just 15-20% chance of rain over normal match time tonight, with wind speeds staying in the single digits. In fact they're not calling for higher than 25% chance of precip from 13.00 till the end of the day.

No problems in Hatteras? We are going there with the family starting Sunday.

This thing is moving quickly. It looks like it will be out the DC area by noon.

lost power last night- 15 cycles on one of our sump pump batteries. Looks like that upgrade paid for itself

I have a co-worker who resides in Charles county and they got hit pretty hard, both wind-wise (nearly had a couple of trees blown onto their roofs) and water-wise.

You were close.  Southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore are both banjo music in the nighttime, shallow end of the gene pool type areas.  The only real difference is what side of the Chesapeake they're located.
