Please Stop It, Weather: 15th Consecutive Day of Rain

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.
