A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for the entire Washington metro area through 10 p.m.

The National Weather Service says the watch extends over the District of Columbia and all surrounding Maryland cities and counties.

Severe Thunderstorm Warnings are coming up and down as well, including in Montgomery, Frederick, Prince William, Prince George's and Charles counties.

A watch indicates that severe thunderstorms could develop over the next several hours, rather than a warning, which designates that severe weather is imminent.
