Arlington and the rest of the region is under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch through 10:00 tonight.

Forecasters say today’s scorching temperatures — we’re also under a Heat Advisory through 8:00 p.m. — will help fuel potentially severe storms late this afternoon or early this evening. The scattered storms will accompany a cold front that is heading toward the region from the west.

“Thunderstorms will have the potential to become severe… producing damaging wind gusts and large hail,” the National Weather Service said.

    It took the NWS this long to figure out it was hot?

      No.

    The hail got me!

    But I doubt there is any damage, it was nickel sized at best.

    It was hardly a relief–so far. Broiling.
