Today will be the sixth consecutive day with measurable rainfall in D.C. but I'm happy to say it should be the last for a while. A flash flood watch is in effect from Noon until 10p.m. A cold front is approaching from the west and will bring in showers and isolated thunderstorms. They will track from south to north like yesterday and a few storms will dump heavy rain. The potential is there for an inch or two. Use caution driving around this afternoon and especially after dark tonight. Don't drive over water covered roads.
The cold front will pass by about midnight tonight and clouds will gradually decrease in coverage. Plenty of sunshine is expected Saturday and Sunday both with lower humidity. Highs in the low to mid 80s for Dad's Day. Temperatures will start to heat up with increased mugginess on Monday. Storm chances return late Tuesday through Thursday. Today's fun fact if you haven't heard, is that it's not only Friday, the Thirteenth, but we also had a full moon this morning. It doesn't happen very often and it will be another 35 years before it happens again. It's called the honey moon or the strawberry moon. Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
