People walk in the rain on Election Day in the District. (Oliver Contreras for The Washington Post)

Quite often around here, it seems as if we run out of ways to say it’s sunny or it’s hot. Now that’s the case with rain. It’s wet. Again. Another half-inch to an inch of rain fell across the area today. A cold front that is partly responsible is just about done working through. Behind it, we get at least one nice day tomorrow.

Through Tonight: Showers are totally out of here by 6 p.m. or so in the south and east. Clearing commences rapidly as the last drops fall, and someone’s probably getting a good sunset out of it. Lows range from the mid-40s to low 50s by sunrise.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Skies range from mostly to partly sunny, mainly from an increase in cloudiness late in the day. Temperatures head to within a few degrees of 60 for highs as a light wind blows off the south-southwest.

Stormy pattern continues: We had yet another soaker today across the area, as numbers continued to edge up the all-time-wettest list. Baltimore (as measured at BWI) is past five feet of rain, with 60.06 inches as of earlier this afternoon. Despite a sunny Wednesday, it won’t be long until our next chance of rain. Another storm system is set to run into the lakes late this week, sending us the chance of more gusty showers on Friday.

Today's GFS weather model shows the potential for a coastal storm next week. (

Beyond that, there is an increasing likelihood of some sort of East Coast storm early next week. Indications are that it might be a coastal storm, although for now it appears that rain would be the dominant precipitation until perhaps well inland or up in New England. Plenty of time for shifts on this one. It is that time of year!
