PM Update: Long-Lasting Storm Winds Down
Glorious sunshine returns on Thursday
Morning drizzle has given way to some afternoon rain as the finale of this slow moving weather system shows its stuff. Showers, heavy at times, should continue the rest of the day and into the evening, with the largest overall totals setting up from D.C. toward the east and north. Temperatures have been uniform and steady in the upper 40s to near 50, but will drop through the 40s with rain falling. Many spots should end up with over .5" rainfall for the day.
Tonight: Showers should continue into the evening and end before midnight. Rainfall from this multi-day storm will top 1" in most locations east of I-95, with lower totals as you head west. Clouds stick around till late night and clearing begins prior to sunrise. Temperatures should fall into the upper 30s in the coldest locations to around 40 elsewhere.
Tomorrow (Thursday): A return to sunny skies is still scheduled for tomorrow! All the new greenery will enjoy soaking up the rays, as will any lucky folks who are outside. Highs should mostly make it into the low 60s, which is still a bit below normal, though quite a treat compared to recently. A northeast breeze around 10 mph won't be too big of an issue.
