Another weather change is coming to our region this week. It will be a warm start to the week, with highs well into the 80s on Monday. Our skies will be mainly dry for D.C., with isolated showers well west and southwest of the I-95 corridor. A few showers may also pop up late Monday night anywhere in the DMV.

A strong autumn cold front rolls through the mid-Atlantic Tuesday. Widespread showers, along with isolated thunderstorms are likely on Tuesday. The morning will start off cloudy with a few light showers.  Moderate rain and pockets of heavy rain are possible Tuesday afternoon, along with a few thunderstorms.  The evening commute on Tuesday looks like a wet one.

Tuesday night, rain becomes even more widespread with some more pockets of heavy rain. Isolated flooding issues may occur. Heaviest rains look to focus east of I-95.
