Rain comes down around region as Joaquin shifts path

UPDATE: 1.30 p.m., Oct. 3

WASHINGTON – The threat from Hurricane Joaquin has diminished and the steadiest rainfall is over.

There is little risk of major flooding across the Greater Washington D.C. area, but there will continue to be some coastal flooding in Anne-Arundel County as well as the flood prone areas along the Potomac in D.C., Arlington, Falls Church and Alexandria.

The biggest issue in many areas this afternoon will be the gusty winds, which could reach over 30 mph at times. Highs will be in the middle to upper 50s and it will feel even cooler with the stiff breeze. Tonight will remain cloudy and blustery with lows in the 40s and some spotty drizzle.

What to expect Saturday night:

Some drizzle, cloudy and windy

Lows: 40s

Winds: N 15-20, gusts up to 30+ mph
