As moisture from Tropical Depression Two heads our way, Sunday morning will go from partly cloudy to mostly cloudy pretty quickly, but it looks like the rain will be slower to arrive. This is great news for Rolling Thunder, getting to church, and spending some time outside early tomorrow. Keep an eye to the sky though, because rain will be pushing in from the south. Look for rain starting in the late morning in the southern suburbs and inside the Beltway after lunchtime. In some lucky spots, we will stay dry until almost dinnertime Sunday. Showers and thunderstorms will continue through Memorial Day morning (Monday). At times, especially overnight, this rain will be heavy. Your StormWatch7 team will be monitoring the flooding potential very closely all weekend.
It looks like we will see a drying trend take over during the day Monday. Rain will hang on the longest farther southeast of D.C. The timing is going to be close for the National Memorial Day Parade, but I'm feeling optimistic that we will be drying out around that time (2 p.m.). A few thunderstorms are possible on Tuesday, but most of the area will be dry. We should stay relatively dry Wednesday and Thursday before a cold front heads our way for Friday. That frontal boundary will keep rain in the forecast to start next weekend.
Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!
