Tornado Watch Issued for Germantown Area
The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for Germantown and all of Montgomery County as well as all surrounding counties and the District of Columbia until 10:00 pm tonight.
Be alert for rapidly changing weather conditions and be prepared to take shelter if a warning is issued, listen to local media for changes in weather conditions. Thunderstorms will likely develop this afternoon. “A few thunderstorms may become severe with a threat of damaging wind gusts, large hail and an isolated tornado,” said the National Weather Service in a Hazardous Weather Outlook statement earlier today.
A Tornado Watch means that conditions are right for the possible formation of tornadic activity. If a Tornado Warning is issued for your area seek shelter immediately.
