On and off rain in Northern Virginia on Monday

Nova Forecast

D.C. Metro could see a good half-inch if not more Monday. Lesser rain for the valley.

It looks to be a rather rainy week across our area. Rain will begin sometime after midnight Monday morning. Be sure to set out your rain gear before you go to bed tonight because you may need it in the morning. Showers will continue throughout the day on and off.

A mini soaking of rain will occur on Tuesday. Look to see about a quarter to a half-inch of rainfall. A heavy soaker will hold off until Thursday, where we could see again over an inch of rain. Wednesday looks to see a few breaks, however. Temperatures will fall from the 50’s on Tuesday into the 40’s on Wednesday and Thursday.

Thursday’s cold front looks rather stout! Friday’s temperatures will fall below average for a day with highs near freezing, if not lower. Things will try to rebound into the weekend, but it looks like temperatures for the weekend seem to stay around the average for this time of year.

Here is a look at your 7-day forecast:

Sunday night: Mostly cloudy skies with a chance of a shower after midnight. Lows will be in the upper 30’s and lower 40’s. Winds will be out of the south at 5-15 mph.
