This evening's tornado threat

Jason Samenow @ 6:58 PM


The remnants of Hurricane Katrina are helping to spin up severe storms over our area. Given the moist, unstable tropical airmass we're under coupled with the spin in the atmosphere, isolated tornadoes are possible in the storms that form this evening. As I write this, a tornado warning is in effect Fauquier County. The storms extend to the southwest into Albemarle county and will move northeastward over the next several hours into Loudoun and Montgomery Counties. Please post any storm reports in our comment section. I'll try to post any warnings there as they are issued for the immediate DC area and surrounding counties.
