More severe storms move through DC area
WASHINGTON - For those trying to enjoy outdoor activities Friday evening, you may want to bring an umbrella or a poncho around as a Severe Thunderstorm Watch was issued until 10 p.m. Friday.
The FOX 5 Weather Team warns a cold front is bringing scattered storms that will pass through the region and may bring heavy downpours, high winds along with possible hail.
The National Weather Service also issued a Flash Flood Watch for the majority of the region until 11 p.m. Friday.
The weather could have an impact on several outdoor concerts around the D.C. area Friday night. The biggest one is the Jay-Z and Beyonce concert being held at Fedex Field in Maryland. Nationals Park in D.C. is holding a stadium concert of its own as the Zac Brown Band is headlining the show there.
Flooding is also a concern with rain pouring nearly every day in the region since last weekend. The saturated soil has also led to many trees falling onto homes and roadways around the area.
There have been several reports of trees falling down in Montgomery County and Howard County in Maryland.
