Hurricane Irene Headed Up The East Coast

Hurricane Irene is headed up the East Coast - a category 2 storm at 8 a.m. with winds near 110 mph, but capable of strengthening back into category 3 territory - and could spread tropical storm conditions across the D.C. metro area Saturday afternoon into evening. Sustained winds may reach up to near 30-35 mph with occasional gusts generally to near 60 mph, especially eastern suburbs Saturday night into Sunday morning, potentially causing significant scattered power outages.

The biggest question mark is rain: There will likely be a sharp cut-off in the rain on the western side of the storm as it passes by along the coast. So that means moderate to heavy rain is a better bet along and east of I-95, including at least eastern sections of the District, and less of a sure thing west of there.
