DC: Downpours, Storms to Hit at Midweek

Showers and thunderstorms will drench the Washington, D.C., and Baltimore areas and may cause disruptions Wednesday into Thursday.

The combination of a front moving in from the Midwest and a building humidity will lead to downpours and locally gusty thunderstorms from late Wednesday afternoon into Thursday midday.

The storms could pack enough rain to slow travel and cause incidents of flash and urban flooding.

The storms could interfere with the game between the Orioles and White Sox at Camden Yards Wednesday evening. There is a chance of a downpour on Thursday afternoon for fans planning on watching the US versus Germany World Cup match outdoors.

As a consolation, enough dry air is forecast to filter in to greatly tone down the risk of showers and thunderstorms from Friday into Sunday. Most areas during this time will be free of rain but there is a remote chance of a popup downpour in the afternoon and evening hours.
