    Soaking Rain Headed Back to Washington, DC

    While several mild days are in store for this week, Washington, D.C., also faces a soaking.

    Monday will turn increasingly rainy as a storm system from the Gulf of Mexico tracks northeastward.

    The rain will persist, heavily at times, through Monday evening with amounts on the order of around an inch.

    Widespread flash flooding is not expected, but there could be isolated issues in poor drainage areas. The main impacts of the rain will be an increased use in umbrellas and some cancellations to outdoor plans.


    Motorists should prepare for slow downs and reduced visibilities, while airline passengers may encounter delays.

    In the wake of the rain, temperatures will rebound to around 65 F on Tuesday and brisk winds will blow on Wednesday.

    Another surge of warmth will follow for later in the week and return temperatures to the 70s.
