We shall see another chance of showers and storms on this Wednesday. We may see a few more areas to see rain than yesterday. Warm dew points with air temperatures closer to the dew point temperature could spark a few more thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. A Marginal to Slight Risk of severe weather is possible per the Storm Prediction Center. This scenario means that a few isolated to scattered storms may be severe.
The highest chance of severe weather will be along a line from Northern Virginia around the D.C. metro area into Montgomery County, Md. and to the north and east towards Baltimore and beyond. This area may see a bit more sunshine, but also has still enough heat and humidity to spark up a few more than what we do here in the valley. Be sure to stay with WDVM 25 this afternoon as we track these showers and storms.
As we go with the setting of the sun on this Wednesday, the storms shall taper off. We will have another chance of showers Thursday, but we may get to see a bit more sun. Showers and thunderstorms on Thursday will be a bit more isolated. A better chance of showers and thunderstorms will come again on Friday.
