Remnants of Tropical Storm Katrina should pass by this evening, with a 30 percent chance of showers or thunderstorms this afternoon, said National Weather Service meteorological technician Calvin Meadows.

He said clouds will be visible early and it will become partly sunny later in the day, with a chance of showers or thunderstorms this afternoon.

Highs will be in the upper 70s, he said, with southwest winds between 10 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts up to 35 miles an hour.

Between 12 a.m. Tuesday and 12 a.m. today, .19 inches of precipitation fell on the area, he said.

By Thursday, it should be mostly sunny, with highs in the mid-80s, with west winds about 5 miles an hour.

Rain began to fall in Hagerstown about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Accuweather.com meteorologist Dave Dombek said the thunderstorms and humidity are expected to clear Thursday through the Labor Day weekend.

"It will be dry, sunny and partly cloudy with no rain after (today)," he said. "It's moving away quickly, and there's a string of nice weather coming."
