Another day, another round of showers... An active weather pattern continues much of this week as warm and humid air lingers in the D.C. region. A weak disturbance brought light rain this morning. It was barely measurable with .02" at Reagan National Airport. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible the afternoon as well.

Tomorrow chances of rain goes up to about 50%. A cold front that is in the upper midwest today will approach our area by Wednesday afternoon.

This will bring more widespread wet weather, but still nothing severe is expected. The front will take it's time moving through with rain and t-showers on Thursday. But, the bright note is that the air behind the front is less humid and cooler. The chances of rain goes down to 20% at best on Friday and right now Saturday and Sunday look good. We are also keeping an eye on the tropics to see if Chantal can survive the mountains of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. If so, we will need to watch it for the Southeast coast. Water temps could support a tropical storm or weak hurricane, but wind shear may prevent it from holding together. Stay tuned. Latest on Chantal at www.nhc.noaa.gov
