    Grab your umbrella! Strong storms could move into the D.C. area Wednesday afternoon.

    Most of the storms should be over by the evening hours, but there is a chance some showers and storms will move into the area during the night, Storm Team4 meteorologist Lauryn Ricketts said. The biggest threat from the storms will be heavy rain. Gusty winds are also possible. 

    Wednesday's temperatures will be in the low 90s, but with the humidity it will feel closer to 100 degrees. Wednesday marks the fifth day of a heat wave, and the hot weather is expected to continue. 

    Storms have have affected parts of the area every day for over a week, with flooding continuing to be an issue.

    At least one driver had to be rescued from their vehicle Tuesday when Broad Branch Road flooded near 27th Street NW. 

    A large tree crashed down near 30th Street NW, damaging at least two homes. The soggy ground and heavy, wet branches likely contributed.

    We will see drier weather and sunshine Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will hover around 90 degrees. Both days are expected to be mainly dry and humid with only isolated late day storms possible. Better rain chances return this weekend.
