Lightning flashes over the District (file photo)Arlington and the rest of the D.C. area is under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch this evening.

The storm watch is in effect through 8:00 p.m. Forecasters say today’s sweltering temperatures may fuel strong storms with large hail and winds as high as 70 mph.

The weather danger will continue tomorrow (Thursday). The National Weather Service says damaging wind and heavy rain is possible as the high heat lingers:

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIKELY THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS EXPECTED AND THIS WILL POSE A THREAT FOR FLASH FLOODING. THUNDERSTORMS WILL ALSO BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND LARGE HAIL…ESPECIALLY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
