Coastal storm to slam New England

As low pressure quickly develops over the mid-Atlantic Thursday (tomorrow), ready yourself for a six to 10 hour period of steady rain late from the pre-dawn hours through mid-afternoon in the D.C. metro region. Around an inch of rain is possible. The storm will have not matured sufficiently to produce high winds here in Washington when the rain falls tomorrow. But some backlash wind gusts of up to 30 mph are possible Friday in the wake of the storm. The impacts in Washington, D.C. will be mild compared to what southern New England faces tomorrow night into Friday as this fast-moving storm deepens into a tried-and-true 'Noreaster.

An inside view of Sunday's severe weather

The severe thunderstorms that tore through the Washington metro area on Sunday afternoon were fueled by a combination of historically hot and oppressively humid weather, and ignited by a cold front barreling east-southeastward. They were not the strongest thunderstorms ever to affect the region - after all, there were no confirmed tornadoes - but they happened to barrel right through the heart of some of the most populated areas of Loudoun and Montgomery counties, as well as the District itself.
