Cold front brings a few storms tonight

An approaching cold front will bring a round of showers and possibly a few thunderstorms to the DMV overnight. The timing on the rain will be between 11PM and 5AM. While these showers will be brief, a few downpours could bring us 0.25″ to 0.50″ of rain.

The Storm Prediction Center has the DMV under a “marginal risk” of severe weather tonight. We do not anticipate any widespread severe weather, but a few thunderstorms that develop may potentially produce strong, damaging winds. The higher chances are across the southern portion of the Mid-Atlantic.

Skies will begin to clear tomorrow morning and we’ll enjoy some sunshine. Cooler air will then take over for the rest of the week.
