After Rain and Wind, Skies Now Clearing


Except for the slight chance of a lingering shower this evening, precipitation has ended across the Washington metro area, with dry conditions likely taking hold for at least several days. Although the rain is for the most part finished, watch out for standing water on the commute home; several water rescues have already been reported.

Earlier today, heavy rain, winds gusting over 40 mph, thunderstorms, and possible tornadoes ahead of a very strong storm system centered in the Ohio Valley prompted numerous watches and warnings throughout the region. For a play-by-play of today's earlier activity, check out the Comments section of Josh's earlier post.
