If there was any doubt, fall is definitely here.
Showers off and on will continue until midnight, courtesy of a cold front that will settle in the D.C. region on Friday.
A period of mostly light rain will occur this evening. A few flurries could occur late tonight, but any accumulations will be confined to the mountains well west of the metro. pic.twitter.com/R103dndqdk

Parts of the D.C. area were pelted by rainfall, and those driving on Interstate 95 experienced poor visibility at times, Storm Team4 meteorologist Briana Bermensolo said.
