Tornado Watch for Parts of Maryland Canceled

NBC Universal, Inc.

A tornado watch issued for parts of Maryland Monday afternoon has been canceled.

The watch had included Calvert, St. Mary's, Prince George's, Anne Arundel and Charles counties.

The rain that began overnight in the D.C. area continued through Monday morning, becoming heavy at times before tapering off.

A Nov. 30 record 2.38 inches of rain fell at Reagan National Airport Monday, making it the sixth wettest November day on record.

Temperatures reached the 60s in the afternoon. South winds also have been disruptive.

Storm Team4 declared Monday a Weather Alert Day.

A powerful storm that has pushed accumulating snow as far south as Tennessee pushed super-mild air northward into the Mid-Atlantic. A cold front associated with this storm passed through at around noon, and another was expected Monday evening.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said all but two coronavirus testing sites were closed Monday due to the weather.

The overnight will stay dry as temperatures drop to near 40 degrees.

Tuesday will be mostly cloudy, blustery and cold. A few sprinkles of rain are not out of the question, but no significant amount of rain is expected Tuesday. Wind chills could be in the 20s and 30s Tuesday morning.

Temperatures will hover in the low 40s all Tuesday afternoon, with a stiff west wind gusting in the 25-30 mph range all day.  It will feel like December for sure, and that winter chill will be with us the rest of the week.
