An area of thunderstorms containing pockets of heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty winds has blossomed in northern Fairfax County and will affect D.C, southern and eastern Montgomery County, and northern Prince George's County over the next hour or so. Shower and storm chances should diminish during the overnight hours.

There seems to be a lot of lightning and thunder around...may be going around me to my north...seems reminiscent of Friday night's big deluge...

Channel 5 mets say we could have another MCS move in from Ohio/Pa. tomorrow morning...could make things cloudy.

There was thunder and lightning to the ground when I was in Columbus Ohio earlier today, before I flew back to the DC area. And threat of hail tho I didn't see any. I wonder if this is the same storm, although less intense?

Thunder and lightning here in Hyattsville/Brentwood.

About 20 minutes of much-needed rain here in Michigan Park. Sufficiently heavy to clean the air and the gutters.

Dropped 0.21". The closest Weatherbug station (at Children's Hospital, 1.37 miles) has recorded 4.32" this month! Happy dance all around!

If we have to endure this dreadful, prolonged heat, bring on more rain, please!!
