Slow moving showers and storms will create the possibility of flash flooding in areas this afternoon into tonight.

Storms End, Mostly Cloudy
Lows: 60s to Low 70s
Wind: NE 4-8 m.p.h.
Partly Cloudy and Warm
Highs: Mid 80s
Wind: NE 5-10 m.p.h.
Mostly Sunny and Hot
Highs: Upper 80s
Wind: S 5 m.p.h.

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH in effect until midnight for the extended Metropolitan Washington and Baltimore areas.

A weak cool front is crossing the region and has set the stage for the development of slowly moving thunderstorms. While the largest area of heavy rain will stay south and east of our region, the storms that do form will produce very heavy rainfall and when coupled with their relatively slow movement, there is the potential for localized flash flooding through tonight…especially in those areas that experience more than one storm. Improving weather conditions develop tomorrow and Saturday with plenty of sunshine. It will be warmer and more humid by Sunday with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms.
