Thunderstorms and Flooding Possible Today


Tuesday we see some of our best chances for unsettled weather with a good chance of some thunderstorms alongside abundant showers across the two Virginia’s as a cold front begins to work its way through the area. Temperatures will make it up to the upper 70’s.

We are under a Level 1 of 5 risk to see severe weather today, our main hazard is isolated damaging winds associated with some of the storms that form along the front today. Flooding is also a concern today as these storms have the potential to produce some heavy downpours. We have a medium flood risk along our eastern counties today and a small risk for flooding for the rest of the viewing area. Remember turn around and don’t drown!

Tuesday night we see the return of some chillier air, lows stick to the lower 60’s with the chance to even see a few of us in the upper 50’s for lows. Not much in the way of shower activity is expected overnight as the front once it clears the area will dry us out.

Wednesday we see more showers across the region with a few thunderstorms still possible, it will be noticeably cooler with highs in the mid 70’s. Wednesday night we drop back down into the upper 50’s for overnight lows.

Thursday we dry out! Temperature-wise we only make it up to the upper 70’s. An isolated shower is still possible, but most of us will be dry! Friday will stay mainly dry also with temperatures trying to get to the 80-degree mark. Again, we can’t rule out an isolated shower, but overall it will be a nice day. Next weekend the unsettled weather returns but we hold on to temperatures in the low 80’s. We still are unable to shake our unsettled weather pattern through next week, more rain chances are still in the forecast.

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.
