Heavy Rainfall Possible Thursday
Environment, Weather

With the area drying out after showery conditions for the last few days, another storm system is brewing and could threaten the Washington D.C. Metro area with more rainfall by Thursday.

Current weather model forecasts indicate the potential for some very heavy rainfall in association with a tropical weather system that is currently developing in the Caribbean. This storm system could intensify and stream tropical moisture and rainfall over the area. Most forecasts indicate the potential for greater rainfall that was experienced during the most recent rain event.

Residents should stay tuned for local media and the local weather service office for the latest details and updates. It should be noted that rainfall of the magnitude forecasted COULD cause areas of flooding.

On the positive side, however, more rainfall will provide great relief for the farmers currently being impacted by moderate to severe drought.

By Friday, we should be drying out and much cooler conditions will arrive by the weekend with highs possibly only reaching the middle 60s in spots. Lows could even dip into the middle 40s even towards the metro area.
