Severe storms moving through the area

Josh Larson @ 5:00 PM

Severe thunderstorms, some with small hail, frequent lightning, and gusty winds are moving through the region Friday evening. The SPC's Tornado Watch for the entire region highlights that some of these severe thunderstorms may contain tornadoes. In fact, several tornado warnings have already been issued over the past few hours over parts of the DC metro area.

Expect moderate to heavy rain, with scattered thunderstorms - some of which may be severe and are capable of producing tornadoes - to continue over the region though the mid to late evening hours Friday. After that time, the threat for significant severe weather will subside, and rain will become more scattered in nature.

Saturday will feature widely scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorm, especially in the morning, along with breezy winds from the north from 10-20mph and gusty. Highs will be in the lower 70's. Much of the afternoon and evening hours will probably be dry, with partial clearing by evening and much cooler and breezy conditions Saturday night; expect lows in the mid 50's to near 60.

Sunday and Monday look to deliver delightful weather as high pressure takes over. Expect abundant sunshine, very pleasant afternoon highs near 70, with cool overnight lows only in the low to mid 50s.

Look for an update on Hurricane Jeanne and DC area weather on Saturday.

In the meantime, report your rainfall totals or any storm reports in the Comments section.
