July is certainly ending on a soggy note. Saturday features another afternoon and early evening of heavy rainfall, fueled by a pesky frontal boundary that refuses to budge. While your plants may enjoy the rain, its likely that you yourself will be a bit bummed by the prospect of a wet Saturday evening. Heck, even your plants might scream “uncle” after the deluge of rain some locations might see. Sunday wins the pick of the weekend, though only as the lesser of two evils, as more showers and thunderstorms develop in the afternoon.

Through Tonight: A rather dreary evening for much of the DMV. Early afternoon scattered thunderstorms will give way to a more organized and widespread rainfall. Some heavy downpours are likely, given the moisture-rich and unstable atmosphere. Flash flooding and gusty winds will be the main concern this evening. Organized rain should be east of the D.C. area sometime after 10 p.m., with scattered showers and mostly cloudy skies left in its place. Warm and muggy overnight, with temperatures and dew point values in the low to mid-70s.

Tomorrow (Sunday): The dreary weekend weather continues through Sunday. We should be dry for much of the morning, though don’t expect much in the way of sunshine as a thick layer of clouds will blanket the region. Showers and thunderstorms redevelop in the afternoon along a slow-moving frontal boundary that won’t clear the area until Monday. Flood advisories a concern again, as locally heavy downpours will add more strain on an already overly saturated soil base. Mild and muggy, with temperatures reaching the mid- to upper 80s. Showers and thunderstorms will taper off overnight with temperatures settling back into the low to mid-70s.
