Tonight we continue to deal with a stalled front to the east and a warm front towards our west creating the right conditions for storm development and sustainability after sunset. Much like today storms will be scattered with 30mph+ winds, small hail, lightning, and localized high water issues. We’ll eventually begin see the storms fade towards midnight with lingering showers well into Thursday morning.
The main risks for Wednesday will be damaging winds, small hail, lightning, and prolonged heavy rain leading to localized high water. Tornado threat is small, but not zero as we lack an ingredient or two for their development. Winds in excess of 58mph, hail larger than pea sized, damaging lightning should be planned for. After several rounds of rain, high water concerns take over Wednesday evening through the overnight as the days rain settles. Remember, Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
Thursday starts off with a few showers with some clearing for the afternoon. As we get sandwiched between two systems our rain chances won’t fall to zero but we’ll see more dry hours than the previous day. Highs rebound a little thanks to the extra sunshine into the upper 70s.
Friday we once again see more dry hours but sunshine will give way to showers for the evening. Another day to watch the skies before heading out. Rain becomes the norm into the overnight for Saturday. Highs remain mild in the upper 70s
Saturday is a soggy day as a cold front pushes in. This time with showers and the possibility of a thunderstorm or two. Highs cool off as we dive below average for June with many struggling to get out of the 60s.
Sunday we finally dry out as high pressure moves in to clear us up. Highs remain on the cooler side in the low 70s but it won’t last long as summer weather is primed to move back in.
Monday continues the dry trend with sunshine returning in force and temps returning to above normal in the low to mid 80s. It’s a sunscreen day for sure as we embark on a warming trend for the first half of the week.
Through the extended forecast showers return to the forecast as we get into a humid and hot pattern. A more summer-like feel returns to the two-Virginias as well with highs pushing into the low 90s.
Severe weather season is here, so make sure your thoughts are turning to preparedness! Refresh your emergency kit and grab that NOAA weather radio that’s still on your shopping list. We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date on the forecast so you can stay weather aware.
