Tropical Storm Delta remains to deliver rain to DC region

Remnants of the tropical storm that was once Hurricane Delta are forecast to bring 1 to 2.5 inches of rain to the D.C. area on Sunday and Monday.

Before Delta hit the Gulf Coast on Friday as a Category 2 hurricane, it was predicted to deliver anywhere up to 3 inches of rain to parts of the D.C. region this weekend.

The tropical storm has slowly moved up from the Southeastern part of the United States Saturday, brining heavy rainstorms, flash flooding and tornado warnings in parts of Georgia.

After a cloudy Saturday, according to StormTeam 4 Meteorologist Somara Theodore, rainfall is expected for the metropolitan region throughout the day on Sunday after Delta moves through the Tennessee Valley.

Nighttime rain is expected to continue into Monday. The storm should clear out by late Tuesday, leaving clear conditions for the rest of the week, Theodore said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
