Disruptive Storms Possible During Evening Commute

The National Weather Service says there is an increased risk of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.

Threats relating to the severe storm outlook include damaging winds, large hail and flooding.

According to the Capital Weather Gang:

“Between 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., thunderstorms are likely — some of which may produce torrential rain and damaging wind gusts. Rainfall across the region should average 0.5-1.0 inches, but amounts are likely to vary with locally higher and lower amounts to be expected. Flash flooding cannot be ruled out in the hardest hit locations.”
