WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) -- Just days after severe weather battered the D.C. region, another round of heavy and slow-moving thunderstorms impacted the area once again Thursday.

Strong thunderstorms moved into the region during the early afternoon hours, bringing with them heavy rain, gusty winds and flooding.

The storm activity began after 3 p.m. and continued into the evening hours across the area. The thunderstorms, which were heavy at times, greatly impacted the evening commute. Winds and heavy rains were the biggest concern. A Flash Flood Watch was in effect into the late evening hours.

Monday's slow-moving rainstorm washed out roads, stranded drivers and flooded buildings making for a chaotic morning commute around the nation's capital.

The storm dumped more than six inches of rain near Frederick, Maryland, about four inches near Arlington, Virginia, and over three inches at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in a two-hour period. Emergency crews around the area responded to dozens of water rescue calls. Arlington County declared a state of emergency following the storms.

Looking ahead to the weekend -- Friday, Saturday and Sunday all look dry with temperatures in the 90s.
