Storms are done, but the impact lingers with winds and flooding.

This Afternoon: Windy and Cold

Temperatures: 40s | Wind: WNW 15-30+

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy with Snow Showers

Lows: Upper 20s to Lower 30s | Wind: W 10-20

Friday: A.M. Snow Showers, then decreasing Clouds

The cold front that produced strong to severe weather in the D.C. area last night is well offshore now, but we are left with some problems in it's wake.  1-4" of rain fell in the area bringing many rivers and creeks out of their banks. Some rivers are still rising and won't fall below flood stage until Friday morning.  Check www.wjla.com/weather for the latest warnings. You can also check out the latest flood stage and forecast here.  Wind is the other big issue.  A wind advisory is in effect until 6p.m this evening.  Winds gusts will be out of the WNW and may reach 40-50mph at times.  Winds are ushering in cooler temps and making it feel even colder.  It will remain breezy through Friday.  A weak cold front will approach tonight and trigger some snow showers.  A half an inch or less is expected.  This is most likely to occur between 1am. and 9a.m.  Keep it in mind for the morning commute.  Join me at noon for the latest on the cold, wind and snow!  www.wjla.com/live or on ABC7.
