Arlington Under Severe Thunderstorm Watch Today

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch was just issued for Arlington and parts of the D.C. area.

Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church and Fairfax County are among the Northern Virginia locales under the watch, which is in effect until 8 p.m.

D.C. and points north and east are also included in the watch.

Storms packing damaging winds are possible as a cold front crosses the area, forecasters say. On the positive side, the cold front will bring lower humidity levels and should help clear up some of the wildfire-induced haze that has the Washington region under a Code Orange Air Quality Alert today.
