Discussion              

A powerful storm system will bring heavy rain to the DC metro region from mid-day through much of tonight and significant flooding is on the table. Some spots can receive as much as 2-3 inches of rain and this will be on top of already well-saturated grounds from multiple heavy rain events in recent weeks. In addition to the heavy rainfall, winds will become increasingly strong with potentially damaging gusts to 50 mph or so raising the possibility of broken limbs, downed trees and numerous power outages. Another significant storm system can produce similar conditions around here from late Friday into early Saturday (i.e., heavy rain and strong winds). A third storm system threatens the Mid-Atlantic region during the first half of next week and this time snow will be on the table.
