Showers, chilly temperatures and flood concerns will continue Saturday and into Mother’s Day.
About 1 to 2 inches of rain fell between Friday and early Saturday, and another half-inch or more is possible, the National Weather Service said. The deluge set off floods in parts of the region.
Flood warning and watches expired Saturday night for parts of the D.C. area, like parts of Montgomery and Fairfax counties that are near the Potomac River. Rivers or low-lying areas may have had high water, the National Weather Service said. Here's a list of severe weather alerts.
A flood warning means there is an active flood threat. Stay aware in flood-prone areas and remember: Never drive into a flooded road. Several water rescues and road closures have been reported.
Slick roads are also a concern: Virginia State Police said officers responded to six crashes on interstates in Northern Virginia between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m.
Grab an umbrella for on-and-off rain showers throughout Saturday amid temperatures in the 50s. Winds are set to pick up in the afternoon. Brace for chills in the 40s by 6 p.m.
Mother’s Day will get off to a soggy start, ideal for breakfast in bed. Weather is set to improve in the afternoon: Expect drier conditions and fewer clouds.
Expect sunshine to return and highs in the 60s on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, then even warmer temps for the rest of the week.
