Slight chance of isolated showers before scattered storms to come this evening

Nova Forecast

Northern Virginia will see only a few pop-ups this afternoon with the main line of showers to come Saturday evening.

A cold front will move over the region overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. We will see a few showers and storms, especially during the evening hours where we could see scattered showers. A few isolated showers and thunderstorms may be possible during the afternoon. This weather will occur mainly off to the west.

We may see a good quarter of an inch of rain over the next 24 hours. A few more locations will see up to 1-2 inches in heavier showers and storms. Hopefully, we will not see much in the way of flooding today, but we will keep a close eye on it. After the showers and storms for today and Sunday, we should see drier weather Monday afternoon through Wednesday.

Temperatures will generally stay around average for this time of year. A few temperatures may go slightly above average, but overall it should be a bit nicer this week than last week when high pressure was set up over the region.

A cold front will come into the region on Thursday and Friday with another chance of summertime showers and storms.
