After a slick morning commute Thursday in the D.C. area, expect plenty more rain to fall before nighttime.

Occasional to frequent showers are set to continue after noon. The heaviest rainfall should taper off by 2 or 3 p.m., but wet weather could continue until sunset, Storm Team4 says.

The rain is set to end earliest along Interstate 81 and last the longest in southern Maryland as a cold front moves west to east.

There's an isolated risk for flash floods because it's been so rainy lately, but overnight flood warnings for the D.C. area have expired.

Wednesday night brought storms that flashed a light of lightning and dumped nearly 2 inches of rain on Frederick, Maryland.

Just a week ago, the remnants of hurricane Ida swamped the capital region.

Remember, if you encounter a flooded roadway: turn around, don't drown.

Thursday will have very little sunshine amid highs in the low to mid-70s.
