Areas shaded pink are under a severe thunderstorm watch until 8 p.m.

The National Weather Service this afternoon issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the entire D.C. area as potentially damaging storms move through.

The watch is in effect through 8 p.m., with damaging wind and large hail being the primary threats.

A watch means conditions are favorable for severe storms to form, while a warning means the storm is imminent or happening now.
