    Streets throughout the D.C. area flooded after another series of severe storms rolled over the region, dumping up to 2 inches of rain.

    D.C., Alexandria, Falls Church and the counties of Arlington, Montgomery, Fairfax and Prince George's County were among areas under a flood warning that has since been canceled. See by-the-minute updates on weather alerts here.

    Storm Team4 has declared a weather alert day. 

    The ground was already soaked from storms last week, creating flooding conditions. Roads were submerged and police reported several water rescues.

    Storm Team4 Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer has your evening forecast for May 22, 2018.

    Remember never to drive through a flooded road.

    The Nationals' game against the Padres was delayed by 10 minutes due to the storms and fans were briefly told to take cover.

    The biggest threat is wind, with gusts of 60 mph possible. Because of all of the rain the area has received recently, conditions are right for falling trees.

    Flash flooding is possible, especially to the south in Charles County and southern Prince George’s County, where the storms will last longer.

    Another storm is possible on Wednesday. Heat and sunshine will close out the week before a chance of storms over Memorial Day weekend.
