Severe T-Storms Lead Cold Front Into Area

Cold front to offer relief from heat wave

The heat wave should be snapped now that a series of severe storms led a cold front into the D.C. area Wednesday evening.

The National Weather Service issued several rolling severe thunderstorm warnings in the area Wednesday.

A National Weather Service severe thunderstorm watch for the D.C. area expired at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

And NBC Washington meteorologist Doug Kammerer expects that will be the end of the severe weather for a while.

A cold front moving in to the area and bringing relief from the heat wave followed scattered showers and storms, some severe, Wednesday evening.

A record high for June 1 of 98 degrees was recorded Wednesday, Kammerer said. A heat advisory was in effect until 8 p.m.

But expect highs in the 80s Thursday and Friday with fantastic weather all around on Friday.
