Rain damp­ens some re­gion’s events

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - BY MARTIN WEIL martin.weil@wash­post.com

Rain loomed, im­pended and threat­ened in many parts of the Wash­ing­ton area Satur­day af­ter­noon but de­spite down­pours in spots, ma­jor day­time events seemed char­ac­ter­ized more by per­spi­ra­tion than pre­cip­i­ta­tion.

But weather luck ap­par­ently ran out Satur­day night when a storm de­layed the start of a con­cert at Jiffy Lube Live in Prince Wil­liam County. “We are just wait­ing it out,” read a fan’s Twit­ter message. It said peo­ple shel­tered un­der an over­hang, as thun­der and light­ning con­tin­ued.

Ear­lier, in the Dis­trict, the King­man Island Blue­grass Fes­ti­val, the Cap­i­tal Pride Pa­rade, and the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als game all pro­ceeded as sched­uled.

Al­most an inch of af­ter­noon rain fell in an hour at Joint Base An­drews. Po­lice in Ocean City de­scribed sig­nif­i­cant road­way flood­ing there. But Wash­ing­ton’s of­fi­cial mea­sur­ing sta­tion at Rea­gan Na­tional Air­port re­ported a rain­free af­ter­noon. In late af­ter­noon, a rain­bow could be seen in the east.
