Severe Thunderstorm Watch South of Region

By Jason Samenow

Isolated strong storms possible in metro area

* Watch includes Calvert County in Md., and points to the southwest (map) until 9 p.m. | Full Forecast | UnitedCast *

Though it's a warm and seemingly tranquil afternoon, a few storms may fire up later this afternoon and this evening, especially from Fredericksburg, Va. and points to the southwest. Any storms that form may have damaging winds, frequent lightning, heavy rain and small hail. In the immediate metro area, the threat of storms is more remote, but an isolated intense storm or two cannot be ruled out.

Monitor radar and severe warnings issued by the National Weather Service on our Severe Weather Tracking Station below. Also, see our full forecast, and our Weather Wall for the ultimate overview of D.C. area current conditions.
