Dry and seasonable conditions are on tap for the rest of the weekend including the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday (see more at the bottom). Nevertheless this rain event was much needed. Through 4am this morning, National Airport (DCA) was up to 5.05" of rain since early Wednesday morning. This brings DCA to over 80% of normal precipitation year to date, putting a huge dent in the drought conditions.
