Another washout as steady rain continues into the weekend; flooding concerns remain

Another washout is underway Friday as a relentless, driving rain continues to fall across the D.C. region.

The heaviest rain fell across Southern Maryland and the Northern Neck of Virginia on Friday. After a brief period of light rain during the afternoon, another round of heavy storms is expected overnight into Saturday.

Flood Watches have been extended for almost all parts of our region. Numerous downed trees and power lines have created delays along the roadways.

Rain, rain, and more rain. Another gloomy day ahead for the Washington, D.C. region today. It will be light but steady most of the day, with the heavier stuff later this evening into the overnight. Flood watches are up for the entire region. Stay dry! :)

Saturday morning will start out wet with potentially heavy storms moving through, but by the afternoon hours, the wet weather should scattered providing some relief.

FOX 5's Mike Thomas says some sun will show itself by Sunday but the chance for scattered showers remains. Showers make an appearance at the beginning of next week but clear up by Thursday.

Saturday still looks wet in the DC region with heavy rain possible during the morning. Some improvement by afternoon with showers becoming more scattered, but still grey/gloomy. Sunday, some SUN IS BACK! A few pop-up storms, but some will stay dry all day!

Frederick County, one of the hardest areas hit by the rainfall, is still under a State of Emergency following days of drenching downpours, flooded basements and overflowing toilets. The emergency will continue through Wednesday.

"Flood waters have begun to recede," said city said in a news release. "However streams and rivers were still flowing above normal stage and were extremely dangerous: No one should ever enter any flowing water. There is still some ponding of flood water in low lying areas, and residents are asked to avoid standing water due to the potential for injury from hidden debris, possible deep water areas, and hidden infrastructure."

The city of Frederick has also asked residents to limit nonessential water usage.

There will be limited service along parts of the MARC Brunswick Line again Friday due to rail damage, officials say.
