Scattered showers and storms could cause a delay, but postponement is unlikely.

This rain risk probably isn't as prolonged or widespread as in recent days.

Rainy and unusually warm weather brought an "unprecedented” mosquito swarm.

Hurricane Harvey in 2017 was a good example of what “slower and wetter” will look like.

Over half a foot came down in Washington, more rain than fell in March and April combined.

Many days of rain had swollen the Potomac River to near-flood stage and flooded the Tidal Basin.

Temperatures are just right, and rain should hold off until much later at night.

The best chances of rain comes Tuesday and the second half of the holiday weekend.

Our next chance at widespread rain won't be until late Monday night.
