Strong to severe storms are possible this evening with large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.
A Tornado Watch is in effect until 9pm for the majority of the D.C. area and points to the west. Here is a look at the watch shaded in yellow.
- Tornado Watch until 9pm tonight
A boundary remains across the region stretching from western Pennsylvania to eastern Maryland which may enhance thunderstorm activity later this afternoon and evening. As additional shear is located along this boundary, locations near it would have the greatest threat for rotating thunderstorms and the potential for an isolated tornado. Otherwise, thunderstorms through the evening will have the potential to produce damaging winds, large hail and heavy rain.
If you can do so safely, please share any storm reports or damage reports to our Facebook page or any of our twitter accounts.
Be sure to keep an eye on Doppler radar through the afternoon and tune in to ABC 7 News at 5pm and 6pm for the latest breaking weather. In addition, Newschannel 8 will be covering any severe weather through the afternoon and evening as well.
