WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — A storm system still will bring rain to the D.C. area Tuesday afternoon and into the evening, but not as much as originally expected.
The National Weather Service has cancelled the flood watch that previously had been issued for much of central Maryland, the Washington area and parts of northern Virginia.
Forecasters still are expecting patches of heavy rain in the immediate metro area, which could make the evening commute tricky. Wintry precipitation will spread into areas north and west of the region as the strong storm system in the Southern Plains moves northeast.
A winter storm warning still is in effect for far western Maryland and a winter weather advisory has been issued for parts of western Maryland and northern Virginia.
Wednesday is expected to be warmer, with it being partly sunny, breezy with a high temperature near 60 degrees.
