    Despite a series of watches and warnings, severe weather did not impact most of us in the metro D.C. area Sunday night.

    All severe thunderstorm watches in our area were ended at about 11:30 Sunday. However, parts of the region may see some rain, hear thunder and see lightning overnight.

    And just outside our area the threat lingers until early Monday. To our south, a tornado watch is in effect until 3 a.m. in parts of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, Including the following counties: Albemarle, Greene, Nelson, Madison, Page, Augusta, Highland and Rockingham.

    The watch also includes the cities of Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Staunton and Waynesboro, and Pendleton County in West Virginia.

    A watch means that formation of a dangerous storm is possible. It does not mean a tornado has been sighted or indicated on radar.

    The line of storms is due to a strong cold front moving in from the Midwest. This line of powerful storms creating tornado watches across the midwest and moved east, the Weather Channel reported.
