Breaking: Incoming Squall Line
A line of showers and thunderstorms (image below courtesy pivotal weather) is currently racing southeast out of the Alleghenies mountains.
This squall line is the secondary cold front getting ready to race across the DC area between 4 and 6PM (height of rush hour) with the potential for widespread wind gusts in excess of 60 mph!
If you haven’t left for home yet, you might want to consider as these showers could cause tree branches to fall as well as power lines … snarling the afternoon rush hour especially in wooded residential areas.
