Tuesday’s digit - 5/10: Mild 70s and humid conditions will make it feel like summer, but the rain moving in won’t be a plus. Matt, CWG

Yep... this same isolated shower just passing thru NW DC and will cross north branch of Beltway shortly as it lifts north. These are short-lived, but could be briefly heavy. Should fade as sun sets.

About an inch or two expected locally with the cold front passage. Much of the rain may fall Tuesday night. Heavier totals are anticipated east and could edge back west. Regardless, looks like a soaking.

Strong cold front headed across the country and toward us. Heavy rainfall could drench the D.C. area late Tuesday and into Wednesday as it passes. Flooding may become a risk around here and to the east. .

On Thursday, we wrote in that a "worst case scenario" issue with the Sterling National Weather Service radar would be if the "bull gear" was damaged. That wound up being the case. Repairs could take ten days or more. Here's a photo:

California cannot catch a break this wildfire season, as the devastation continues - this time in wine country - during yet another episode of heat and dry winds.
