Update: Scattered Thunderstorms Possible

By Jason Samenow

[6:25 p.m. -- The northern half of the line of storms that were developing earlier fell apart. The southern part of line slowed down a bit and will drift from Fairfax County into southern PG and Charles Co in the next hour. Scattered showers and storms remain a possibility area-wide until midnight or so.]

A line of showers and thunderstorms has developed and will impact the metro area between 4:00 and 6:30 p.m. (from west to east, i.e. Loudoun to Anne Arundel/Calvert counties). Heavy downpours and briefly gusty winds are possible with these storms. An isolated severe storm is possible but most storms should remain below severe levels. After this initial line moves through, more intermittent/scattered showers are possible (50% chance) through 10 p.m.
