NWS Issues Severe Thunderstorm Watch for MoCo

stormsweathergburgThe National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Montgomery County until 9 p.m. on July 20. Severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening.

The primary threat with these storms could include extremely heavy rain, large hail, lightning, and isolated tornadoes. Those with outdoor plans should monitor the skies and be prepared for threatening weather.

A severe thunderstorm watch means conditions are favorable for severe storms in and close to the watch area. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce tornadoes with little or no advanced warning. Residents should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.
