Once the storms move through, that will be the end of the severe weather for the day, but showers could continue through the evening. Flash flooding is possible.

There are a lot of trees down as a result of the strong winds. At Swan Point, a wind gust of 70 mph was reported.  

The severe storms come a day after strong storms rolled through, spinning off at least two tornadoes, the National Weather Service says.

The skies will dry out and settle down overnight, then summer-like heat will tamper down for the rest of the week.

Wednesday will bring another high rain chance but a lower threat for severe storms since it will be cooler with highs only in the mid-70s.

A cold front will reach the I-95 corridor by early Wednesday afternoon. This will bring in cooler and less humid air but also a period of gusty winds.

Thursday will be sunny and cool.

On Friday, expect highs barely above 60° with and a likelihood of some afternoon showers.

For the weekend, Saturday is likely to stay cool and dry.

The Mother's Day forecast for the D.C. area looks warmer, in the mid-70s, with a chance of rain.
