Although the rain has ended, streams and creeks have risen due to the rainfall from this morning, said the National Weather Service.

A coastal flood advisory is in effect until 10 p.m. in D.C. The National Weather Service says shoreline inundation is possible along portions the seawall next to Ohio Drive and Hains Point. The Tidal Basin and Jefferson Memorial could also see shoreline inundation.

A coastal flood advisory means that onshore winds and tides will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

A flood warning that was in effect for parts of Virginia was canceled early.


As for the rest of the day, it will remain partly sunny, warm and unseasonably humid.

Sunday night: Mostly clear. Lows in the mid-50s.

Monday: Mostly sunny, seasonable and pleasant. Highs in the mid- to upper 60s.

Tuesday: Partly sunny, seasonable and pleasant. Highs in the mid- to upper 60s.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy and mild. Highs in the mid- to upper 60s.

Thursday: Cloudy with rain showers. Highs in the mid- to upper 60s.
