Flash flooding may also be a problem if the same areas get hit multiple times with downpours.

The NWS says "the main severe threat is strong damaging wind gusts, there isalso a low threat for damaging hail and a few weak tornadoes". The day should be mostly sunny with a high near 83, the weather service says. The strongest storms may produce gusty winds, large hail, and frequent lightning. Expect more comfortable and dry conditions for Tuesday and Wednesday. We will be keeping a close eye this situation. They are expected to move in after 12 p.m. with severe storms starting after 4 p.m. and potentially risky storms between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

The watch area includes Prince William, Fairfax and Arlington counties, as well as communities in and around Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, Alexandria, Leesburg, Ashburn and Sterling.

Bortolleto said the DACA announcement "should in no way make people think that the administration is softening their stance". The DAPA program, like the one for young immigrants, was created with a policy memo, not by legislation.

Showers and thunderstorms may linger tonight and into the wee hours of tomorrow. Widespread showers and thunderstorms with scattered intense rainfall rates will continue to spread across the area.

The trigger is an approaching cold front from the west. Temps reach the mid 80s during the afternoon, with high dew points. Between that and the rain, our temperatures will be about 10° cooler than the weekend with highs in the mid to upper 70s Monday afternoon. This is great news for the first round of the Traveler's Championship taking place at TPC River Highlands golf course in Cromwell. It is in effect through Sunday evening.
