WTOP has an article on the 20-year anniversary of the La Plata Tornado.  What a monster that thing was

Still remember it like it was yesterday. I remember the story of my grandparents seeing the tornado looking north out of their house at the time.

Had an extremely loud crack of thunder IVO our house NW of Vienna about 5 mins ago.  Much louder than a normal "crack" of thunder associated with a nearby lightening strike.  Wonder if there's a temp inversion aloft with the inbound cell that amplified the sound?  The stranger thing was we didn't detect any flash.  Wasn't a transformer breaker popping - had a long echo to it.  Really odd.

That was it.   Just far enough away the rain and low cloud deck obscured the flash.  The "bang" was pretty intense.  What app are you using?  I check this one and it didn't show any lightening strike IVO our area at that time.  http://www.lightningmaps.org/?lang=en

Looking ahead - CIPS analogs still aren't really enthused with any severe potential for the next while. There does seem to be some uptick in the longer range analogs beyond 240hrs. That's way out there, though. We'll have to see if it's a snoozer of a spring severe season for the immediate DC area or if there is a rapid uptick as we get into our climo butter zone. 

We usually get a window from May into most of June where we can get some decent CAPE combined with still decent wind fields. Once we get to late June/July it tends to get more pulsey in nature as the shear is usually less impressive.
