Arlington, VA

Arlington residents should watch the skies tonight (Sunday) due to the threat of severe storms.

Anyone participating in outdoor activities as part of their Memorial Day weekend, in particular, will want to monitor to the weather Sunday evening. Storms packing “dangerous winds and large hail” are possible.

More from the National Weather Service:

…SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING… THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIKELY ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SOME OF THE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE SEVERE, WITH DAMAGING WINDS AND LARGE HAIL BEING THE PRIMARY THREATS. ANYONE WHO PLANS ON BEING OUTDOORS DURING THIS TIME SHOULD PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE LATEST FORECASTS. STAY ALERT FOR WARNINGS AND BE PREPARED TO SEEK SHELTER QUICKLY SHOULD THUNDERSTORMS OCCUR. IF YOU SEE LIGHTNING OR HEAR THUNDER, YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE IN HARM’S WAY. THE THREAT FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL MOST LIKELY BE IN TWO ROUNDS. THE FIRST ROUND THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON MAY BE MORE SCATTERED IN NATURE, BUT AGAIN SOME OF THOSE STORMS WILL BE SEVERE WITH DAMAGING WINDS AND LARGE HAIL. MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIKELY THIS EVENING INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT, AND SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY BE SEVERE AS WELL.
