Speaking of the main event, you can expect it to roll in between now and 8 pm, depending on your location. The Storm Prediction Center indicates the DC region is at an enhanced risk of severe weather developing during these hours.

Here's how that threat breaks down:

TIMING: 4-8 PM

STORMS MAY INCLUDE: HEAVY DOWNPOURS, FREQUENT LIGHTNING, POSSIBLE HAIL, DAMAGING WINDS

FAST-MOVING SYSTEM: STORMS WILL MOVE IN AND OUT QUICKLY

BIGGEST THREATS: DAMAGING STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS AND FLASH FLOODING

 

 

 

Remember, a "watch" means that conditions exist that are favorable for severe weather, while a "warning" means severe weather is imminent and you should seek shelter immediately.

On the bright side, we'll have less humidity on the other side of this cold front, and a beautiful week is in store-- with highs in the 70s!
