Father's Day Brings Muggy Weather, Chance of Storms

NBC Universal, Inc.

Storm Team4 is tracking a chance for isolated showers and storms Sunday evening.

Father's Day was muggy with temperatures reaching the 80s.

Meteorologist Somara Theodore says the chance for any storms will continue through sunset and with that comes a concern for flooding.

As a reminder, if you encounter a flooded area while driving, turn around.

D.C. rescue teams helped bring trapped people to safety, including children, as waters quickly gushed into the Potomac Saturday. News4's Darcy Spencer spoke with some of the rescue workers.

D.C. Fire and EMS responded to three separate rescues in the Potomac River near Chain Bridge Road on Saturday. A total of 12 people were rescued from the water.

Temperatures will dip into the 60s overnight.

Patchy, dense fog is possible Monday morning before temperatures quickly warm to the upper 80s to 90 by the afternoon. Tuesday and Wednesday will be making a run for the low 90s, but Wednesday may cap in the 80s for some.

All three days will bring their own chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the thunderstorms may be strong to severe. Humidity drops and sunshine returns in full force by Friday.
