D.C. Storm Has Washington Area, Barbie Prepping For Disruptive Weather (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang is making sure we know that D.C.'s storm won't hit derecho levels.

But Barbie's prepared for anything.

Meanwhile, folks around D.C., Maryland and Virginia are taking to Twitter to share photos of a menacingly lovely sky.

Thursday morning's storms didn't produce much damage, but that's not the end of things. According to the Capital Weather Gang:

The most likely end point for the storm threat is around 3-5 p.m. in D.C.’s far western suburbs (Loudoun and Frederick counties) and around 8 to 9 p.m. closer to the Bay. We expect the prime time storm potential around 3 to 8 p.m. in the region from west to east. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible before that.

The area remains under an unusual moderate risk of severe weather, with flooding rain, damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes possible.

We don't know about you, but we could really go for a beach vacation right about now:
