Heavy Rain Possible in D.C. Region


Rain could be heavy at times Monday afternoon and evening and into Tuesday in parts of the Washington region, NBC4 meteorologist Veronica Johnson predicted.

National Weather Service severe thunderstorm warning for northern Anne Arundel County and northeastern Prince George's County expired at 4:15 p.m. There are reports of trees down in Bowie.

Strong showers passed through D.C. later Monday night.

Thunder, lightning, high winds and hail could be possible with the lines of storms, and there could be 1 to 2 inches of rainfall through Tuesday, Johnson said.

The heaviest periods of rain were expected to be Monday night into Tuesday.

The best chances of rain will come Tuesday and Wednesday before things settle down a bit toward the end of the week, according to meteorologist Chuck Bell.
