The wet weather that has soaked the morning commute is not going anywhere fast.
Rain showers tapered off by midday but could resume in the evening. Half an inch to an inch-and-a-half of rainfall is possible through the day. On Maryland's Eastern Shore, residents could see as much as 2 inches of precipitation.
In the evening, isolated storms could produce severe weather.
After 7 p.m., we could see lightning in the night sky until midnight.
Thursday morning, blustery winds will blow a big change into the region. Morning temperatures will drop into the 50s. Wind gusts could reach 35 mph. Temperatures will fall into the 40s on Friday and Saturday morning, but the skies should be clear and sunny.
So far, the weekend and the start of next week looks to stay dry.
