Scattered showers and thunderstorms hit the D.C. area Thursday afternoon and a flood warning remains in effect for Washington, D.C.

Severe thunderstorms brought heavy rain, strong winds and lightning to D.C., parts of Montgomery and Prince George's counties in Maryland, and parts of Northern Virginia.

Power was out for about 7,000 Dominion Energy customers in Northern Virginia. Most of the outages were in Arlington and McLean.

There were also reports of trees down throughout the region.

A few scattered showers and storms will continue to impact the area this evening, especially west of D.C., Storm Team4 said. The biggest concern looks to be heavy rainfall in slow-moving storms leading to flooding.

Otherwise, the region is in for another muggy night with lows in the 70s in D.C. and around 70 in the suburbs.
