Severe Thunderstorm Watch In Effect for Area Until 9 P.M.

The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the entire region that will be in effect until 9 p.m. Friday.

According to the alert, isolated hail up to the size of a ping-pong ball is possible, as are scattered wind gusts up to 70 mph. In addition, frequent lighting is possible.

The watch extends from Virginia all the way up the East Coast to Connecticut.

Locally, the Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang says they “expect that there will be a few severe thunderstorm warnings,” and to “anticipate scattered power outages from downed limbs.”
