Severe Thunderstorm Warning Issued Until 2 p.m.; Tornado Warning for Northwestern Fairfax County
Posted at 1:30 p.m.
A low pressure system is forecast to cross the area today bringing us the possibility of severe weather this afternoon — strong straight line winds, isolated tornadoes and hail are possible. This will then be followed by a cold, high pressure system with temperatures dropping overnight.
Currently the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for our area until 2 p.m. and has just issued a Tornado Warning for Northwestern Fairfax County, also until 2 p.m. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch remains in effect until 5 p.m.
Please remain weather aware as conditions can change rapidly as the warm, low pressure system moves out and is replaced by the cold, high pressure system.
