The D.C. area could see some storms anywhere between 4 p.m. and sunset. Some of them have the potential to be severe, bringing strong winds and hail.
Summer is not quite here, but don’t tell that to the summer-like storms that are hanging around the area Sunday.
The storms are scattered throughout the region, so the timing of when they will hit depends on where you are. The western area of the state could see the brunt of the storms beginning around 4 p.m.
Storm Team4 Meteorologist Somara Theodore said that once the storms start, they’ll hit hard. Storm intensity could range anywhere from strong to severe.
“Any showers that do go ‘pop’ will be downright heavy,” Theodore said.
The storms will arrive with strong winds and the potential for hail. Areas north and west of D.C. could see a tornado touch down during the afternoon hours. Much of the impact of the storms however will be felt in Pennsylvania.
