Memorial Day in the D.C. region could bring some heavy storms, bound to threaten outside gatherings as the rain moves through.
Monday is expected to be wet, with storms starting on the holiday and continuing into Tuesday.
“We’ll likely all see the rain at some point on Memorial Day,” said ABC7 meteorologist Jordan Evans.
This is most likely in the afternoon, when chances of rain go up to 70% and the winds could gust up to 25 mph.
Highs on Monday is expected to be in the upper 60s to low 70s.
“Memorial Day could bring a few rounds of heavy rain to some areas and a rumble of thunder,” Evans said. “Rain will remain scattered throughout the day and continue into Tuesday due to the slow moving upper-level system.”
Evans added that, while rain is expected, “the flooding and severe weather through is very low” for Monday and Tuesday.
