Severe Thunderstorm Watch Issued

Arlington and the surrounding region is under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch through early Friday morning. A line of storms approaching the area may bring downpours, lighting and high winds.

From Arlington Alerts:

The National Weather Service has issued a SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH for Arlington County and surrounding suburbs and the District until 1:00 am.

Those with outdoor plans this evening should monitor the skies and be prepared for threatening weather. Lightning is the number one severe weather killer in the US. If you are outdoors and a storm approaches, seek safe shelter indoors.

A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH means conditions are favorable for severe storms in and close to the watch area. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce tornadoes with little or no advanced warning. Residents should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.
