Severe Thunderstorm Watch Issued Into Evening

By Dan Stillman

* Full Forecast | Outside Now? Radar, Temps & More: Weather Wall *

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch, in effect until 9 p.m. Shower and thunderstorm activity developing off to the west is likely to increase in coverage and spread into the D.C. metro area over the next several hours. It looks like a 50/50 chance that you'll see a storm where you happen to be. Storms will be capable of damaging winds and large hail, so take cover if skies darken.

Ha ha ha, for those of you wondering what the "D.C. Split" might be...just look at the radar. Perfact excample!

Storms South, Storms North, and we sit in between high and dry :)

Is there a rational explanation for the "DC split" we seem to see so often?

The storm is moving quickly in northeast direction. It just cleared Leesburg. See ya....

Not sure why!! We not only see it in the summer but we also see it many times during the winter.

As I posted earlier, we rarely get really severe weather for two days in succession, and this happened again today. We got all our bad weather yesterday with the pre-frontal trough, so little or nothing happened when the frontal boundary reached us today.

Since the frontal boundary is hanging up or stalling nearby, we may expect to see renewed storminess tomorrow afternoon.
