    Wet Week Shaping Up For Washington, DC

    The dry end to the weekend in Washington, D.C., will not persist for the rest of this week.

    Hopefully those who enjoy spending time outdoors took advantage of Sunday's weather.

    Some rain will spread back across the nation's capital Monday afternoon through Tuesday, putting a damper on outdoor activities.

    Tuesday will be the cooler of these two days with temperatures set to be held to the 50s. Brisk winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.


    Heavier periods of rain and thunderstorms will follow for Tuesday night and Wednesday, heightening concerns for flash flooding.

    The stage may also be set for some of the thunderstorms to turn severe on Wednesday if enough sunshine breaks through the clouds.

    The return of even more sunshine on Thursday should allow May to start with 80-degree warmth. A lingering shower or thunderstorm will keep Washington, D.C., unsettled.
