Showers will continue through the morning  but will not be as heavy as they have been overnight and the heaviest will be east of the city. Areas will begin to dry out through the mid morning hours but shower and thunderstorm chances will remain through the afternoon and evening as an upper-level disturbance spins to the west over West Virginia.
