Severe Storms Pop Up During Humid Labor Day

For Friday, we're tracking any effects Hurricane Dorian could have on the D.C. area

Some severe weather moved through the D.C. area on the unofficial last day of summer. 

Severe thunderstorm warnings were in effect earlier for parts of Northern Virginia.

The National Weather Service said earlier a severe thunderstorm was located near Middleburg, Virginia, and was moving east. The storm brings the chance of 60 mph wind gusts and quarter-sized hail. Localized power outages are possible, the weather service said.

A Look at the Week Ahead

The humidity is set to be lower on Tuesday but then should creep back up on Wednesday. Temperatures will be in the high 80s on Tuesday and low 90s on Wednesday.

Then, Thursday will be cooler with highs back in the 70s.

For Friday, we're tracking any effects Hurricane Dorian could have on the D.C. area. Most models show the hurricane pushed out to sea before it reaches the Virginia-North Carolina border, Storm Team4's Lauryn Ricketts said. But there's always a chance that outlook will change.

Even if the storm does track off the coast, heavy rain and storm surge flooding are possible east of I-95.
