Two-hour radar loop of rain and storm movement through the area. Refresh page to update.

Admit it — now that we’ve reached a record-shattering 15 days of measurable rain in D.C., you’d kind of like to go for 20, right? As it turns out, this seemingly endless streak of sogginess may come to an end Thursday, although there’s an outside chance it doesn’t. Either way, more rain is likely Friday.

Through Tonight: Some showers and thunderstorms are expected to dry up as they approach from the west early this evening. That said, there’s a small chance that a stray shower reaches the area before midnight. The chance is even smaller that it happens to pass over Reagan National and keep our rain streak alive, but anything’s possible the way we’re going. Otherwise, temperatures dip to the low 60s for overnight lows, with patchy fog possible and an increasing chance of showers (after midnight).

Tomorrow (Friday): Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely (70 percent chance) during the morning into early afternoon as a front comes through from west to east. Skies should start to clear later in the afternoon, with a mild breeze from the west helping to push highs into the pleasant mid-70s.
