Scattered Rain Wednesday Ahead of Possibly Severe Storms Thursday

Another round of rain is expected to come through the D.C. area tonight, but Storm Team4 says stronger storms are likely on Thursday.

Meteorologist Amelia Draper said to expect rain mainly between 7 and 9 p.m. Wednesday. Pockets of heavy rain are possible west of the D.C. area in Frederick, Loudoun an Fauquier counties and further west. Not everyone will see rain and the threat of severe storms is almost non-existent, Draper said.

But Wednesday is only a break from more severe weather and thunderstorms: Thursday will be a Storm Team4 weather alert day.

A cold front moving in Thursday is expected to trigger severe weather with potential for heavy rain, strong wind and hail.

Storms and heavy rain rolled through the region Tuesday after similar weather on Monday.

The Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies were rained out after a nearly two-hour delay on Tuesday, the teams' second washout in two nights. The game will be made up on Sept. 24 at 1:05 p.m. as part of a day-night doubleheader.

Tuesday was another hot and humid day, with temperatures reaching the upper 80s in the late afternoon. The temperature reached the mid-80s Wednesday.

A cold front will clear early Friday morning setting the stage for a gorgeous finish to the work week. Humidity levels will be nice along with a spectacular breeze and plenty of sun.
