Strong to severe thunderstorms could sweep across the region this afternoon, bringing with them potentially damaging winds.

The storm risk will be at its highest this afternoon into the evening hours as an area of low pressure moves across the region, according to the National Weather Service.

If storms do develop, they will be the latest round of severe summertime weather to batter the Washington area in recent weeks.

On Thursday, several tornado warnings were issued around the nation’s capital and heavy rains were blamed for closing Metro stations.

Temperatures today are expected to climb into the low 90s today and then fall to about 70 overnight, according to the weather service.

The thunderstorm risk continues into tomorrow afternoon and evening.
