News: 2018 is now Washington’s wetest year ever recorded.

4:40 p.m. update: Rain has increased in coverage and intensity across the region. The flood warning (per 3:40 p.m. update) has been extended to cover the district and much of the immediate subway area around the Beltway. It is in force until 1

:30. Because currents and streams rise and may overflow, it is best to avoid driving along these waterways. If you encounter a flooded road, turn around, do not drown. Much of the region has picked up 1 to 2 inches of rain and another 1 to 1.5 inches can fall.


Areas under flood guards and warnings late on Saturday.

In the next hour or two, Washington is likely to break its daily record of 1.38 inches from 1901 – quite well on the same day as it reached the wettest year on record. By 4 pm 1,25 inches had fallen.

3:40 p.m. Update: A flood warning has been published for Northern Virginia by 10:30 p.m. due to heavy rain. One to two inches has fallen and another inch or two may fall. “Demands and streams rise, and the Fairfax County 911 Center has reported high water on some roads,” notes [National Weather Service] . “Further rainfall will lead to streams and streams continuing to rise out of their banks through tonight.”

11:05 am update: The potential of a lull in the rain during the day is not going well. We can still see a bit drier air in the southern work in the next few hours, but at the moment the rain continues to be rebuilt over the area. This storm system has now exceeded an inch of rain in the city, which we continue to add in our wetest year on record.

One to two inches extra rain is possible. While the risk of rain sticks to us all weekend, it should be a few moments without. Do not plan to spend too much time outdoors if you do not like rain or anything.

Tomorrow (Sunday): By this time we should talk less activity overall, with a few showers on the Sunday generally or failing. With the upper pressure of the low pressure passing, it also begins to draw colder air from the north. Readings that fall through the 40’s and possibly in the 30’s in stains before sunset seem likely. Rain should be decreasing late in the day. Confidence: Medium

A LOOK AHEAD

Sunnier skies is back for Monday . Even though we are behind the storm and it’s windy in the wake of water there’s really not much cold air for it to go behind. So, when the clouds are gone, we should look at temperatures in the 50’s for high levels. Confidence: Medium

Heat air does not hold too long. A small wave sends another cold front by delivering colder air for Tuesday. Skies are mostly sunny, and the winds are gusty out of the northwest, as heights reach the middle and over 40’s. Confidence: Medium
