9:00 PM | Heavy rain and strong thunderstorms racing across central PA should reach DC, Philly metro regions later tonight

Discussion

An area of heavy showers and strong thunderstorms is barrelling across central Pennsylvania at this hour and is headed towards the DC and Philly metro regions. This batch of rainfall is racing along at 40-45 knots and could affect these metro regions with heavy rain and potential severe weather between 10PM and 1AM. The air mass is full of moisture and any storm will be able to put down a lot of rainfall in a short period of time. The potential for heavy rainfall will continue on a daily basis right through the weekend and into next week in the Mid-Atlantic region.
