Wet weather timeline Thursday and Friday

3 min read

Potential of a Weather Watch Alert for the round of rain and some breezy conditions. Here’s the timing.

WASHINGTON — The WUSA9 Weather Watch team is tracking an area of low pressure that dumped heavy rain and snow on the West Coast. It is now taking aim on the DMV late this week with the potential of rain and even some wind impact. Unlike the last couple of systems that provided snow threats, this one will be all rain.


  • Showers develop Thursday afternoon.
  • Rain and showers impact Thursday afternoon, and Thursday night into the Friday morning commute (Noon Thursday – 10 a.m. Friday).
  • Up to 0.25″ of rainfall.
  • Gusty breezes pick up during the day Friday and last through Saturday.
  • Average peak wind gusts of 20-30 mph.
  • A southeasterly wind will lead to the potential of minor coastal flooding late Thursday and into Friday morning.
  • Saturday will be blustery and noticeably cooler with temperatures in the 40s.


12:00 p.m.
A few showers will try and develop shortly around lunchtime Thursday. Keep an umbrella handy to be safe, but most of the afternoon looks dry.

6:00 p.m.
The evening commute will also feature a couple of showers and potentially some moist roads.

Off-and-on shower will continue into the overnight hours.

6:00 a.m.
The Friday morning commute will be damp a residual shower or two. Give yourself a few extra minutes for your morning drive to account with wet roads and send the kids to the bus stop with rain gear.

12:00 p.m.
Showers will start to clear by lunch time Friday.

Rain will be over for the Friday afternoon commute with winds ramping up and sunshine and somewhat chillier air returning for the weekend.


A widespread 0.10″ – 0.25″ of rain is expected, but only just enough to wet the ground is forecasted at Reagan National Airport. The timing of the rain will make it potentially impactful for both the Thursday evening rush and the last morning commute of the week, too.


As rain moves out, winds could gust between 20 and 30  miles per hour Friday into Saturday. Light yard and patio objects, along with trash cans should be secured.
