Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated at 7:22 p.m. May 6, 2015 

Summer-like warmth and humidity combined with a weak frontal boundary set off numerous showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, with reports of hail up to golf ball size around Chantilly. More thunderstorms are possible over the next several hours, with activity diminishing later this evening as we lose the heating of the day. It will stay mild overnight with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Thursday will be a rather nice day with slightly lower temperatures and humidity, and the nice weather will continue on Friday. We are watching for the formation of a tropical system off the Carolina coast this weekend, which may push moisture into our region, bringing humid conditions and a chance of showers.
