After days that saw a man and woman being swept away while trying to cross a flooded street outside a bar in Alexandria and streets and basements flooded in parts of Northern Virginia, any rapid rainfall can set off floods.

Watch out for rising water, and if you encounter a flooded road, remember: Turn around, don’t drown.

Steamy conditions return following the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred move away.

Rain is expected every day through Saturday. Sunday looks clear so far. Temperatures will be in the mid-80s to nearly 90 all week.
