Phew. The storms have now passed safely to our southeast after pummeling much of the metro region with torrential rain, thunder, vivid lightning, pockets of hail (mostly pea-sized), and strong winds. We should see a break from rain and storms for the next several hours, although a few storms can't be ruled out later on tonight (but just a 30% chance). Temperatures will settle in the 60s.
Some of our Twitter followers posted some dramatic photos of the storms.
*@pong photographed the scene from atop the roof patio of the Car Barn in Georgetown
*@itsabeta says: "Check out them hail stones!"
*@maureenpetron captured the view from her delayed plane at National Airport.
*@lizbart shares the view from K and Vermont.
Also, check out this cool video of the storm raking Falls Church, Va. posted on You Tube by frequent CWG commenter stinkerflat1.
