NWS Issues Tornado Watch, Severe Weather Possible

An incoming cold front will likely mean a strong line of storms this evening and the National Weather Service says those conditions make tornadoes possible.

The NWS issued a Tornado Watch for the D.C. area, including Montgomery County, until 10 p.m.

Most weather experts put the storms hitting our area around 4 or 5 p.m.

A Tornado Watch is a less severe alert than a Tornado Warning, though people are urged to be cautious of the severe weather:

A TORNADO WATCH MEANS CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR TORNADOES AND SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IN AND CLOSE TO THE WATCH AREA. PERSONS IN THESE AREAS SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR THREATENING WEATHER CONDITIONS AND LISTEN FOR LATER STATEMENTS AND POSSIBLE WARNINGS.
