PM update: A few strong storms are still possible tonight and tomorrow


We all must try to avoid the “weather fatigue” of our days with severe thunderstorm hazards. Unfortunately, slight chances continue today and tomorrow. Don’t be surprised if big hail, destructive gusts of wind and downpours make their way to your place in the region.

We will be watching the entire region as we have a stationary front nearby plus upper level energy coming east into our region this afternoon. The strongest of the storms may be concentrated in the Charlottesville to DC area by 8 p.m

Until this evening: Showers and thunderstorms can last into the night. Any that develop have a low potential to quickly dump 1 to 3 inches of rain (along with the aforementioned wind and hail threats). Please remember: turn around, don’t drown if you encounter flood water. With high, sticky dew points generally in the low 70’s, low temps can only cool down to the low to mid 70’s.

see the Current weather conditions at the Washington Post.

Tomorrow (Monday): A similar storm threat could affect commuter traffic on Monday afternoon and evening from 2 p.m. There’s a chance the heaviest rains will be concentrated north of DC, but not a guarantee. Skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the day due to pop up showers that can occur before afternoon storms. Southerly wind gusts build up over time throughout the day and, even outside of storms, can reach gusts of almost 40 km/h.

The humidity makes both low and high temperatures feel sticky. High 80s to low 90s can feel closer to 100 degrees in the hottest, steamiest spots in the afternoon. Low temperatures will not bottom out until the low to mid 70’s amid some persistent showers and storms into the night.

Large hail and dangerous gusts of wind are easily possible until tonight

The Storm Prediction Center shows areas around and west of DC have a 5 percent chance of hail and damaging wind gusts (58 mph or higher) through Monday morning. See the green shading on the maps below.

Luckily, these storms should still be hit-or-miss in nature. Many of us should end up seeing garden-variety storms, which only possess typical summer strength. That being said, many parts of the region have experienced downpours and can quickly become inundated if more than one thunderstorm “moves” or passes over the same area.

As with last night and likely tomorrow night, we will be monitoring the radar into the late afternoon and evening hours when the storm probability increases. Already, a line is forming along Interstate 81 moving east. Stay tuned.
