The swath from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., and others will have a clearing trend into Wednesday.
Areas farther south in Virginia will experience the rain and drizzle departing, followed by brightening skies.

The region is likely to be in for an extended period of rain-free weather that should last through much of the weekend in most locations.
The next potential for rain will come from a storm destined to bring snow from Colorado to Minnesota and perhaps renewed flooding problems in part of the Midwest later this week.
