would be one of the major impacts. there could be a few storms around for the evening commute today, but we're not really seeing as high of a threat of street flooding. i think this is moving through fairly quickly in terms of the timing, so it won't be raining that long at your house. here is that area of slight risk of severe weather. i want to just point out from frederick down to say purcellville, back to martinsburg, and northwest of that, those are the areas that have a better chance of getting stronger storms. still a little questionable. we are trapped into the cloud cover, trapped into this wedge of cool air. if we don't break out of it, our severe weather threat is much lower in those spots. you can see here i put on the clouds in black and why is so you can see where we're breaking out in the sunshine now, moving into clark county and barely getting it to the border. up to the north and west through hampshire, hardy counties, we've got a couple of

we'll watch for more storms moving in this afternoon. let's go through futurecast hour-by-hour. talk about the timing of all of this. it's not going to be an all day thing, it's not going to be widespread. here's the futurecast at 5:00. here are the best areas of getting those showers and storms that could pose the threat of brief heavy rainfall, damaging wind gusts or some hail as well. these storms are almost going to be in clusters of lines and they'll keep pushing through late afternoon through the early evening hours. you see how we don't see that much happening south of i-95 versus north, so i think the best chance of getting some of these stronger storms again is going to be north of d. c. we'll keep that risk in and keep monitoring it. here's 10:00, showers and storms fading away. we'll go into tomorrow. we'll repeat the pattern with a few more showers and storms in the afternoon. then guess what happens after that, we get a nice little break from the rain. day planner today, showers and storms in d. c. around 7:00. rain chances going down. r
