Rain from post-tropical cyclone Delta is starting to soak the D.C. area, and it doesn’t look to be tapering off until Monday afternoon.
Storm Team 4 meteorologist Somara Theodore said rain will intensify overnight Sunday.
“On average we are looking at around 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain,” she said; there is a possibility of some local flooding, she said, so “areas that are prone to flooding should be cautious and aware.”
High temps in upper 60s. Rain will continue into the afternoon on Monday, and Theodore described the day as “clammy.”
The Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland, said Sunday that the once-major hurricane is expected to drop 3 to 6 inches of rain on parts of Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia.
Delta hit the Gulf Coast on Friday as a Category 2 hurricane.
