Storms with heavy rain roaring through the D.C. area during the Wednesday evening commute led to flooding in some parts of the region.

Flood warnings are over for parts of Montgomery, Prince George's, Anne Arundel, Charles and Howard counties in Maryland through early Thursday morning.

A flood watch was in effect for much of the D.C. area as storms and downpours flew over.

The National Weather Service issued the watch to last through 4 a.m. Thursday and advised that excessive stormwater runoff could result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.

Some parts of the region were expected to get as much as 2 inches of rain per hour, leading to the potential for flash flooding.

Storms tapered off by sunrise Thursday and the last of the rain is set to end by 10 a.m., Storm Team4 Meteorologist Chuck Bell said.
