Storms Mostly Miss; More Chances This Week

By Dan Stillman

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

The Severe Thunderstorm Watch from earlier has been cancelled, except for Howard and Anne Arundel counties and points east (until 9 p.m.). An area of storms clipped the northern fringes of Loudoun and Montgomery counties, but otherwise most of the area has escaped without rain this late afternoon and evening. Such is the nature of the 50/50 storm odds we predicted earlier.

For the rest of the night, it looks like just the chance of an isolated shower or storm, and even that mainly to the east and southeast of the metro area. See our full forecast into the coming work week.

I live a couple of miles east of Laytonsville in MOCO and although the sky looked pretty nasty, the storms missed us today. Last night, we lost power for five hours, from about 7 p.m. til midnight.
And what's with Doug Hill and crew? Yesterday, they consistently said Sat. only had a "slight" chance of storms "north and west" of the city? Come on, Laytonsville is only about 20 miles from D.C. and we got blasted.

It was a great weather day for the Nats game despite the forecast.....and they won in extra innings!
