3/21 DC/MD/VA Weather Outlook


Spring came in with a Bang yesterday for me! About 2:30 Thunder rolled through the Washington Area and produced ¾ inch hail briefly in Fairfax. Today and tomorrow we will enjoy near seasonal weather. A chance of strong to severe storms possible southern Virginia on Wednesday. Another chance of Rain Friday into Saturday and maybe more storms on Sunday.  

Summary: Spring has really sprung. Today’s temps will be nice and we will be seasonal tomorrow. Northern areas will see a cold flow of Air Tuesday night and Wednesday, whereas southern Virginia will likely break out of the cold air and could see strong to severe thunderstorms. There is a lot of shear that could be involved which would give rise to potential tornadoes. I will keep watch on this.
