Starting today, D.C. has a chance for rain that runs for almost an entire week.

The high-pressure zone that was keeping the calm is moving on down the road, leaving the city in the hands of a couple nefarious areas of low pressure. Last night a stationary front was causing showers and scattered thunderstorms over western Maryland, and forecasters were on the alert for possible flash flooding. Now the District's turn is coming up.

Here's a quick look at how the next six days might play out:

Friday: Cloudy but probably no showers for D.C. However, just saying that is tempting the rain gods....

Saturday: Chance of afternoon showers, but only a low risk of a thunderstorm. As of last night, one weather model was indicating a large rainfall during Saturday night.

Sunday into Tuesday: The atmospheric instability jacks up measurably during this period. Chance of thunderstorms on each day. The probability window falls in the afternoon hours, although for this week D.C. is special: There could be a morning thunderstorm if the air gets unsettled enough.

Keeping positive, high temperatures shouldn't dip much below 70 degrees on these days, making this a warm dousing. Keep 'er here for the most current forecasts, live radar and storm alerts.
