The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH for the immediate DC Metro area through 6pm. The necessary ingredients - sufficient daytime heating, copious atmospheric moisture, and an approaching front - are in place for the possibility of severe storms developing this afternoon through early evening. Torrential rain, winds to 60mph, small hail, and fierce thunder and lightning are possible.

As of 2pm, many storms have already developed, though the majority remain to the west of the District. The closest storms are over Faulkier, Loudon, and Prince William counties in Virginia, and upper Montgomery, Frederick, and Carroll counties in Maryland. I expect that more storms will "pop" over the next 6 hours so your location may see thunderstorms during that time.

Check out the current local radar loop as well current watches and warnings.

And post a comment if thunderstorms hit your area...
