Here Comes a Big Storm to Complicate Thursday Commute

Rain/Credit: Bahmad Farzad via FlickrHeavy rain is expected to move into Northern Virginia before sunrise Thursday, so be ready for what could be a slow and soggy morning commute.

The same storm system sparked tornadoes in the central U.S. and a blizzard in Colorado should come through the D.C. area, forecasters say, bringing with it about 0.5-1.0 inches of rain, says The Capital Weather Gang.

Models say the heaviest rain will hit western Fairfax County around 4-7 a.m. and will fall east of I-95 from 7-10 a.m. There may be some thunder and a strong wind gust or two (up to 30-40 mph) as well.

So far, there are no flash flood watches, but Reston Now will keep you updated.
