Flooding concerns continue in wake of DMV storms

The Flood Waring in has been extended to 10 AM Wednesday for parts of Frederick County in Maryland and Loudoun County in Virginia.

After 4 days of severe thunderstorms, the risk for severe storms has ended; however, our weather pattern will remain very unsettled with rain likely through the weekend. Flooding will be the concern over the next few days, so continue to stay weather alert. Our airmass is exceptionally humid and will stay that way through early next week. The next change we can expect is next Tuesday when drier and less humid weather returns.

Until then, keep your umbrella handy. Rain chances are likely throughout the day today with highs about 10 degrees lower than yesterday. A rumble of thunder is possible, but, again, we are not anticipating severe thunderstorms. Rain is likely tomorrow, as well, with moderate to heavy rain late Thursday night into early Friday morning. By Friday night, we could pick up an additional 4-7" of rain; ergo, the flood risk.

Making weekend plans? Saturday looks like the wetter of the two days. I think we may get a little sunshine by Sunday, but a few scattered showers and thunderstorms are still possible. Stay with our team over the next several days to stay ahead of the wet weather.
