    While the weather on Memorial Day started off beautiful in the D.C. area, we could see some showers later in the day.

    Storm Team4 is watching two different systems that will spread some rain into the region. First, the former Tropical Storm Bonnie, which has now been downgraded, is still hanging out off the coast of South Carolina, bringing us periods of clouds and rain, especially for areas closer to the coast.

    Closer to I-81, you may get much more in the way of sunshine -- however, that will only increase our instability Monday as Storm Team4 monitors a weak front that will scoot through the region later in the day.

    After 4 p.m. Monday, expect some isolated showers and thunderstorms to move into the I-81 corridor and continue to head south and east. Before 4 p.m., expect rain east of I-95 in Southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore.

    Some of this rain could also push back toward Montgomery and Loudoun counties and through the D.C. metro area, so it will be a good idea to keep that umbrella with you.

    For Tuesday, expect periods of sun toward the west and mostly cloudy skies east of I-95, with only be a small chance of rain. We will have some chances of rain on Wednesday as well and then again on Thursday and into Friday as a cold front makes its way into the region. That front could linger and keep rain chances in for the weekend.
