While we play the waiting game for today, the rain will move in from the west to the east as it streams northward, running into a pool of warm moist air as it travels east. A few showers and storms will pop off this afternoon and some could be severe but the rain will pick up in a steady and intense stream as it travels to the east into the overnight and into tomorrow morning. A flash flood watch has been posted for the region starting this afternoon and continuing through Friday afternoon as well as a severe thunderstorm watch that is in effect until 8p.m. tonight. Temperatures today will move to right around 80 degrees with breezy conditions. Temperatures overnight tonight will fall to around 70 and that temperature will steadily fall tomorrow. Unfortunately, we are expecting heavy downpours for tomorrow morning commute. rin will end tomorrow afternoon from the west to the east, clearing the D.C. area by the mid-afternoon and finally moving off the coast by tomorrow evening. Rapid clearing behind the front will bring the winds down and clear the skies. High pressure builds in for the weekend bringing sunshine. Temperatures will top out in the lower 70s. There is a slight chance of a isolated sprinkle through the area for the weekend but other than that, a very pleasant weekend in store. High pressure stays in charge through the beginning of next week.
