Jason - How much rain do you think we will get and when will it be the heaviest? I am planning to go to a concert at Nissan Sun night and I wondering if it will be a rain out...?

Everyone seems to be in agreement that we will get 2-4 inches of rain sunday night to monday. Makes me think that all the weather forecasters will be very wrong.

Logan: I agree with what the NWS says in the post above. 2-3 inches of rain, although I'd say closer to 2 than 3 in most spots. I would not be optimistic about anything outdoors tomorrow evening... looks like a complete washout to me.

Look at the hourly weather graph for Washington on the NWS website. How is it possible to get almost an inch of rain from 2-5pm when there's only a 38% chance of precip?
Strange.

Dangit! Tommorrow night is the Radiohead show!

Something about Radiohead and DC. This better not be a repeat of the Bull Run Fiasco. Bad traffic + 10,000 cars + 3 inches of rain + gravel lots = nightmare. Of course if it was at the Verizon Center nobody would be nervously watching radar before the show!
