Severe weather could snarl evening commute

Severe weather is hitting the Washington region this afternoon and evening, with thunderstorms, damaging winds, torrential rain and tornadoes all possibly wreaking havoc across the area. This likely will create a severely snarled evening commute, so if you haven’t left yet be prepared for a slow trip home.

Follow our live-blog for the latest on the storms. We also have a power outage tracker.

A flash flood watch has been issued until 8 p.m. for the Washington and Baltimore areas, while a flash flood warning was issued until 5:45 p.m. for D.C. and close-in suburbs. We’ll have some tweets embedded below, but make sure you follow the live-blog for the latest.
