You will need to keep an eye to the sky on this Tuesday as a cold front may produce strong to severe storms.

An approaching cold front and area of low pressure will push toward and through the region later today into early Wednesday. The Storm Prediction Center does have the D.C. Metro and most of the listening and viewing area under a slight risk of severe weather.

The main threats with the stronger cells will be the potential for damaging winds and hail. Make sure you keep it tuned to ABC 7, NewsChannel 8, and WTOP radio for the latest information.  Exactly how much sunshine we can get in between this mornings rain and this afternoons second batch will determine how stong the storms may be.

Beyond the storms Wednesday and Thursday look pretty quiet.  By Friday our next cold front will being it's approach and will impact the region Friday into Saturday.  I am trying not to get to excited about this just yet however, weather guidance is indicating that we could see daytime highs around 80 degrees by the time the weekend rolls around.  Stay tuned for more details as we progress through the week.
