By Dan Stillman

98 ties record at Reagan National

*Heat Advisory in effect 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday*

Scattered thunderstorms have prompted a few Severe Thunderstorm Warnings across the area and provided a brief but welcome cool down for those in their path (please, no more power outages though!). This evening's thunderstorms are capable of producing heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds.
