Tonight showers and storms are expected to continue across the two Virginias as the cold front takes it’s time making it’s way out. With all the overnight rain and the clouds around temperatures don’t drop off to much once again only falling into the mid 60’s. Storms will become less frequent the later we head into the evening.
Some storms could be strong this afternoon and evening, but the severe threat is mainly off to our west. Regardless, watch for storms to have gusty winds and heavy rain fall. We do have a marginal risk for excessive rainfall that could lead to flooding across the area tonight.
By daybreak on Saturday after the cold front, if it’s not raining in the morning where you are it’s likely that some pockets of dense fog will begin to develop across the region. Past some morning fog we begin to dry things out. We will see some sunshine during the afternoon and rain chances remain limited. Temperature wise we fall back to right around average with highs in the low 80’s for most and we shed some of the humidity we’ve had all week.
Sunday looks to be a bit more unsettled with showers and storms returning. This will mainly be very late in the afternoon and into the early evening. The first part of the day and the early afternoon is looking great.
Some of the storms we see on Sunday could be strong or severe as a marginal risk for severe weather is in place for our western counties. The biggest concern will again be strong gusty winds. Temperatures on Sunday are back in the mid 80s.
Looking into next week, things look relatively dry to start out with temperatures remaining near or just above average. Past mid-week there are indications of some impressive heat making a return for everyone, along with the return of some showers and storm chances. As we get closer this weekend we’ll iron out the details further. It does look like we could see a couple of days in the 90s across much of the area!
Remember that severe weather season is now in full swing. Be sure you have two ways to receive alerts and warnings! NOAA Weather Radio is something we always recommend, and it makes a great gift too.
