Two Lines of Severe Storms Move Through DC Area Thursday Evening

Two lines of strong storms moved through the D.C. area during the evening commute Thursday. 

Thursday was a Storm Team4 Weather Alert Day.

Several severe storm and flood warnings were issued as the storms moved through.

A flash flood watch initially effective into Friday morning for many of the same areas that were slammed with heavy rain and floods Monday was canceled after the storms moved out of the area.

These rounds of storms brought less rain than the storms that flooded D.C. on Monday, when a record 3.41 inches of rainfall fell at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in the span of a couple hours. In southern Maryland, along the Patuxent River, 4.03 inches were measured.

As more rain approached Thursday, homeowners were still cleaning their basements and crews continued fixing weather-related issues on the roads. Canal Road between Foxhall and Reservoir Road is expected to be closed through the morning commute Thursday, at least.

The weekend should be mostly dry. It will be hot, but the humidity shouldn't be an issue.
