Rain and thunderstorms may be around as the Washington Nationals take on the Tigers at 7:05 p.m. EDT Tuesday.
A storm slowly moving from the Southeast into the mid-Atlantic will be the culprit behind the rain threat. The slow nature of the storm and repeated downpours have been leading to some localized flash flooding concerns, including across portions of North Carolina.
"The risk of flash flooding is expanding northward and will focus on the I-81 swath in Virginia, around Washington, D.C., neighboring West Virginia and Maryland, as well as part of Delaware Tuesday and Wednesday," AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
"Repeating downpours can lead to flash and urban flooding, as well as quick rises on small streams and catch basins," Sosnowski said.
Besides the risk of flash flooding, lightning, gusty winds and hail are threats with locally strong thunderstorms that may erupt.
