    A severe thunderstorm watch for the D.C. area was canceled after dangerous storms moved through the area Wednesday afternoon.

    The storms were less widespread than Tuesday's, but they prompted storm warnings again. 

    Tuesday's storms left behind a beautiful rainbow that got a lot of attention on Twitter (click image at right to view larger).

    Tuesday's storms also knocked down some trees and power lines in the area causing some outages.
