A cold front sweeping through the area brings a likelihood of thunderstorms, according to NBC Washington meteorologist Veronica Johnson.

Some storms contain high winds and are accompanied by heavy rain. The cold front caused a series of rolling severe thunderstorm warnings Tuesday evening.

Trees are down all over Stafford County, Va., according to the sheriff's office.

A strong storm in Prince William County, Va., had weakened by the time it moved into southern Maryland, NBC Washington Chief Meteorologist Doug Kammerer reported.

The best chance of storms continues until midnight.

A couple of nice-feeling days are coming up, Johnson said.

High pressure will move in tomorrow and will be in place into Friday with lower humidity and more sunshine. Wednesday and Thursday's highs will be in the mid-80s with mostly sunny skies and light breezes.

For outdoor activities, that's good. But we need the rain.
