As an upper-level low pressure system slowly progresses through today into this evening, strong rain and thunderstorms are likely throughout the area.

Isolated thunderstorms began developing early this afternoon after a morning of mostly to partly cloudy skies over much of the DC region.  These thunderstorms quickly gained strength due to the unstable atmosphere, helped by extra heat from the sunlight.

Some of these storms will be capable of high winds and small hail, mostly penny-size.  Nickel-sized hail has already been reported in parts of Virginia.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Localized flooding is also a possibility, especially in Virginia where the ground is already over-saturated from the 3-6 inches of rain some locations accumulated yesterday.

These strong scattered storms will continue to progress and form over our area through this evening before the system moves out.  Keep an eye on the skies and local weather reports as these continue to develop.
