Heavy overnight rain west of Washington made for a difficult and dangerous commute in portions of Prince William and Fauquier Counties. Over 3 inches of rain fell in those areas and caused localized flooding. One of our Weather Bug stations in Manassas recorded 3.90 inches of rain. Warm and humid conditions with showers and thunderstorms will contunue today and tomorrow across the area. On Thursday, we will see temperatures climb to the lower 80s with a little more sunshine but there will still be a chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. On Friday, temperatures will reach the middle 80s with only a slight chance for afternoon thunderstorms.
Over the Memorial Day Weekend, it's going to go from warm to hot with partly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. It is still too early to speak, with any confidence, as to whether afternoon thunderstorms will be a possibility over the holiday weekend.
