The D.C. area was under a severe thunderstorm watch until 9 p.m. Thursday.

As storms moved into the area, severe thunderstorm warnings were issued throughout the area beginning at about 3:30 p.m.

Storms capable of producing lightning, quarter-size hail and winds up to 60 mph moved east at 20-40 mph toward Calvert and St. Mary's counties in Maryland.

News4 meteorologist Veronica Johnson predicted the storms to be pretty much out of the area by 8 p.m., with the possibility of scattered showers lingering.

More stormy weather is possible Friday and through the weekend.
