Storms Depart After Heavy Dose of Rain
Flooded roads and downed trees among damage
The back edge of a fierce line of storms that dumped 1 to 2 inches of rain on parts of the metro area this evening (Dulles Airport recorded 2.35 inches of rain in two hours) is now exiting the area to the east and northeast. But not before flooding was reported in Maryland (two cars were reported stranded in high water on I-270 in Rockville), on Rt. 50 in Chantilly, Va., and in Arcola, Va.
Severe reports from storms earlier in the evening include six downed trees in NE D.C., and hail in excess of 1" in diameter (mainly well south and west of the immediate metro area).
The rest of the night should be much quieter around here with a few lingering showers and lows in the low 60s. Tomorrow? Overcast and much cooler with highs only in the 60s and showers likely by midday. See our full forecast through the weekend.
