Weather Alert: Remnants of Hurricane Zeta Drench DC Area, Cause Flooding

Here's the Storm Team4 forecast for the workweek and Halloween

NBC Universal, Inc.

Heavy downpours Thursday caused flooding throughout the D.C. area, closing some roads as rain associated with Hurricane Zeta is keeping the region soggy.

Scattered showers will continue into early Friday morning, and flood warnings are in effect in parts of Maryland and Virginia through the evening. See all weather alerts here. Thursday is a Storm Team4 Weather Alert Day.

Two inches of rain had fallen in Washington, D.C., as of 6 p.m. Thursday.

Transportation reporter Adam Tuss got an up close look at the flooded Woodburn Road in Annandale.

At particular risk for floods are urban areas where the storm drains may be unable to flush away all the water. Remember: Never drive into a flooded roadway. Turn around; don't drown.

The forecast caused D.C. to close its public coronavirus testing sites, which are set up outdoors.

Downpours tapered off to showers by Thursday evening.

Friday we'll see scattered showers, especially early in the day. Expect it to be breezy or windy with temperatures topping out in the mid-50s.

A freeze warning has been issued from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. Saturday for areas north of Washington, where temperatures could get as low as 31 degrees.

There's good news for Halloween on Saturday. It's set to be sunny but chilly, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. A frost or freeze is possible in the morning, mainly north and west of D.C. Plan to bundle up your little ghosts and goblins — even if they say "boo."

Daylight savings time begins this weekend, bringing along more daylight hours. Storm Team4's Amelia Draper reports.

The sun will set at 6:08 p.m. Saturday. Amid clear skies, you'll have the perfect shot to howl at the full moon.

Don't forget to set your clocks back before you go to bed — Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on Nov. 1. Enjoy that extra hour of sleep (or haunting).
