* Our Full Forecast | Storms? Radar & more: Weather Wall *

The National Weather Service has discontinued the Severe Thunderstorm Watch that had been issued earlier. Nonetheless, showers and thunderstorms will impact much of the area overnight and a few could still be strong (particularly through midnight) -- with locally heavy rain, gusty winds, and small hail.

Some of the storms from earlier this evening produced large hail, mostly in the north and west suburbs -- with up to 1.5" diameter hail in NW Montgomery County near Damascus. Large hail has also been reported in Rockville.
