      It's the ABC7 weather department's thinking that our best chance for storms comes after midnight tonight.{} There is a very slim chance that we might see storms fire up over the next few hours, but we feel that chance is very low.{} The SPC has discussed the possibility of this storm development too.{} Here's a glance of the graphic and part of their discussion from about 3pm EDT.{} To sum up:{} the risk of storm development is marginal in the D.C. region through the early evening hours.
