April 8 2020
Did you wake up from the early morning storms? That line we tracked last night did prove to be an overachiever and held up multiple rounds of thunderstorms. Heavy downpours dropped as much as 1/2 inch or rain, and some spots got hail. Some damage in northwest Washington where winds got close to 60 mph.
Today will be warm, with the focus of storms south of Washington. But more on the way tomorrow.
