Rain, Storms & Slice of Sunshine Expected Sunday

The sun is expected to finally peep out Sunday after days of torrential rain and flooding throughout the region.

Storm Team4 Meteorologist Somara Theodore said to expect a hot, muggy Sunday as a few thunderstorms and rain showers roll through in midday and early afternoon. Temperatures will reach the low- to mid-80s.

By the afternoon and evening, sunshine should peep through giving the area a brief break from all of the gloomy weather.

Storm Team4 forecasts that the region won't dry out until Thursday, so flooding conditions may continue.

A flood warning is in effect for parts of Frederick, Montgomery, Prince George's, St. Mary's and Washington counties in Maryland and Fairfax, Culpeper, Fauquier and Loudoun counties in Virginia. The warning will last through Sunday and even Monday for some areas. 

A coastal flood warning is in effect for D.C. until 10 p.m. Sunday.

Remember to never drive through flooded roads.

In addition, the National Weather Service has warned people who live around trees to sleep in an interior room, if possible, to avoid the possibility of trees that may fall onto homes. The region has seen many fallen trees this week due to high winds and wet ground. 

Nina Tobin and her brother were in their house on Maple Avenue in Takoma Park after school, waiting for their parents to get home, when a massive oak tree came crashing down.

"We heard this sound like big Velcro ripping...." she said.

Damage to their home was not extensive, but the blow from the huge tree devastated the home next door, crushing the enclosed porch, exterior wall and fence.

Miles away in Bethesda, another massive tree fell on a home on South Chelsea lane, also causing extensive damage. In Silver Spring, a falling tree brought down lives wires across several homes on Riley Place just off Seminary Road. A bicyclist was hospitalized with serious injuries after he was hit by a falling tree on MacArthur Boulevard in Glen Echo.

And at the height of evening rush hour Friday, a tree toppled into Interstate 270, striking an SUV.

Storm Team4 says the threat for severe weather is over for now, meaning hail, damaging winds and the risk for tornadoes are no longer in play. But flooding will be a huge concern through the weekend.

Frederick County, Maryland, has been the hardest hit. Parts of the county have seen 10 inches of rain since Tuesday.

Sunday is looking a bit better, with a lower chance of storms.
