Storms with Damaging Winds Possible Today

There will be a risk for severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening across a large swath of the eastern United States. The risk will be greatest in the Carolina States where there could even be isolated intense tornadoes.

For the Washington, DC area, moderate to at times heavy rainfall will continue this morning before a brief lull later on this morning and early afternoon. A warm front may provide the necessary instability for storms to develop to the west. These storms will intensify and move east during the afternoon hours and into the early evening. Below, you can see one weather models prediction for this evening -

This weather model shows an intense line of thunderstorms for the area late this afternoon.
