    Storm Team4 Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer has the forecast for May 11, 2016. (Published Wednesday, May 11, 2016)

    You're probably ready to burn your umbrella by now.

    Unfortunately, though, that's not a good idea -- you're still going to need it.

    (We'll wait for you to stop sobbing.)

    On Wednesday, the D.C. area entered its 15th straight day of at least some rain, beating a stretch set in 1968. Yes, the last time we had rain for this long, Neil Armstrong hadn't yet walked on the moon.

    Rain showers are falling across a large part of the area Wednesday, with drizzle in other parts, Storm Team4 said.

    Most of the rain moved out by evening, but some showers could continue.

    Overnight there's also a chance for rain, but Thursday will be mostly dry, with a couple of showers possible. That could put an end to the streak -- at least a hundredth of an inch must be recorded at Reagan National Airport.

    Thunderstorms are possible Friday. Saturday will be mostly dry early but there is a threat of storms, but there's a chance for late day showers and thunderstorms.

    The region is expected to dry out by Sunday. Just try to keep it together until then.
