Today's Forecast

FROM ABC7’S BRIAN van de GRAAFF | FRIEND ON FACEBOOK AND FOLLOW ON TWITTER

Periods of rain today with a rumble of thunder or two…sunshine stays away until late-week!

A low pressure center over the Tennessee Valley will crawl toward the area. The storm will bring periods of rain, some heavy at times and it will be breezy. Temperatures will remain below-average with highs in the mid 60s. Rainfall today in the metro area which could be around 0.50” or so will definitely be a blessing as we have a yearly rain deficit of almost 3 inches at Reagan National Airport. However, from Fauquier, Warren, Rappahannock, Culpeper and points southwest, there is a Flood Watch with up to 2”+ of rain possible.

The pesky storm system will take its sweet time moving up the Mid-Atlantic Coast so we will keep the threat of more showers in the forecast Wednesday. By Thursday the t-showers should be confined mainly to the afternoon. The good news is that we will see some sunshine, too, and that will help to boost readings into the upper 70s Thursday and near 80° for Friday! The storm will finally depart by the end of the week but there will be upper-atmospheric disturbances that may trigger a shower or t-storm Friday afternoon
