Better keep that umbrella handy. It's pouring in Springfield, Alexandria and elsewhere in the D.C. area.

Showers and isolated thunderstorms will move eastward from WV this morning. We'll monitor Doppler radar to see if any make it east of the Blue Ridge later this morning.
Otherwise, a partly sunny, very warm and humid day is underway across the region. Late this afternoon, as a cold front inches its way towards our area, a new area of showers and thunderstorms may develop.
In fact, conditions favor the development of some strong thunderstorms and the Storm Prediction Center has placed our region under a slight risk of severe thunderstorm potential. Like yesterday, location will determine high temperatures...warm everywhere but warmer DC and west, not as warm near the Chesapeake Bay.
Partly cloudy skies are forecast for tomorrow with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms from mid-day through the afternoon, especially south and west of D.C. It all depends on where the cold front will be at that time. And partly sunny, cooler and less humid conditions will overspread the area on Sunday.
