Arlington and much of the D.C. area is under both a Tornado Watch and a Flood Watch today.

Strong storms with damaging wind, large hail and torrential downpours are possible today, forecasters say.

“A Tornado Watch is in effect for much of the area until 2pm this afternoon,” the National Weather Service says. “In addition to the threat for tornadoes, damaging wind gusts and large hail will also be possible.”

While the tornado risk will end mid-afternoon, forecasters suggest, the flood risk will run well into the evening, with the watch set to expire at 11 p.m.
