    Storm Team4's Summer Outlook

    Summer weather sure feels good after the punishing winter that D.C. has endured -- but this season is also capable of severe storms.

    Two years ago, the D.C. area suffered through a derecho -- an incredibly violent line of storms that ripped through the area without warning. The derecho killed at least 13 people, led to a failure of Fairfax County's 911 system and left thousands without power during the record-breaking heat wave that followed.

    And heat has its own dangers, as do summer pursuits, including swimming. It's as important to be prepared for severe weather in summer as it is in winter.

    That's why Storm Team4 is bringing you this Weather Special, "Storm Team4: Tracking Summer."

    Or, if you missed it Saturday on News4, tune in to Cozi to watch, either at 6:30 p.m. Sunday or Monday at 7 p.m. (Click here for Cozi listings.)
