Storms End, Turning Cooler

By Jason Samenow

The showers and thunderstorms have exited the metro region and are crossing the Chesapeake Bay. Some spotty severe impacts were reported -- including penny to quarter-sized hail in Fairfax and Montgomery counties and some wind damage in Charles County (Port Tobacco) from downed trees.

For the outlook for the rest of tonight and into tomorrow, see the PM Update from earlier.

Thunderstorm earlier this evening with brief downpour and considerable lightning, but no hail in SW Arlington County. TV mets said tops were quite low, ca. 14,000 ft. That sounds rather low for thunderstorms, which generally have tops at least 20,000 ft. high. Tomorrow showers may be lighter due to cooler weather.
