Grab the rain gear heading out the door. An area of low pressure, that could still become Tropical Storm Irma, spinning off the Carolina coast will bring us rain and wind today. It will also be quite cool with temperatures holding in the 60s today. Rainfall totals could reach an inch or more along and east of I-95. Expect lesser totals farther north and west. Notheasterly winds, gusting 25+ mph, will promote some coastal flooding, so be mindful of rising water in those locations. The wet weather tapers off around 7PM, so the Nationals should be able to get in their 7:05pm game. Just dress warm, since it will be damp and cool.

Tomorrow will be warmer and drier with highs around 80. Thursday and Friday remain dry and comfortable.

The weekend brings rain from Harvey, but it won't be a washout. Expect high clouds to arrive Friday with rain from Harvey on Saturday. At this point, it looks like the steadiest rain will fall in the morning with rain chances lingering through Saturday night. The wet weather is out of here by Sunday with sunshine and warmer highs in the low 80s. Labor Day Monday remains dry with sunshine and highs in the low to mid 80s.
