Discussion

A significant rain event is underway in the DC metro region and it will continue into the overnight hours with one to two inches likely in most areas by the time it winds down. Low pressure will track up towards the Great Lakes region today and it will push a strong cold front towards the east coast. A secondary cold front will then follow by early Friday paving the way for a cool end to the work week and beginning of the weekend. It'll turn unsettled again at the beginning of next week as low pressure forms in the southeastern states. One final note: clocks are turned back an hour early Sunday morning.
