Storms still threaten part of DC area

The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for parts of the D.C. area, particularly in Maryland, until 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Storm Team 4 meteorologist Amelia Draper doesn’t expect Wednesday’s batch of storms to be as widely active as Tuesday’s. It’s possible that wind gusts could go up to 60 mph, Draper added.

“A few isolated showers and storms will impact the area through the evening hours. Storms could have heavy rain and strong gusty winds, but activity will be much sparser than yesterday,” Draper said. “Overnight, I can’t rule out an isolated shower or storm tonight.”

Though evening storms are in the forecast for the rest of the workweek, the weekend is expected to be sunny and dry.

Severe thunderstorm watch until 10 p.m.

MARYLAND: Prince George’s, Charles and Anne Arundel counties.

Thursday: Becoming mostly cloudy, hot and humid. PM rain and thunder expected. Highs in the high 80s to low 90s.
