The weather for spring is warm and nice today! We have breezy conditions which will cause some fire risk in the sw part of VA and NC. Temps will soar to the mid and upper 70s north and mid 80s south! Showers and thunderstorms will start arriving in the west later this afternoon or this evening. Some storms will approach strong to severe limits. Wind would be the primary concern. Storms could be ongoing in the morning and may still approach severe limits in SE VA and East NC so the Severe Storms Prediction Center (SPC) has highlighted these areas for slight risk tomorrow.
After morning rain and storms the region will dry out from West to East and be brteezy and mich cooler. Highs will be in the 50s to near 60 for most.
Rest of the week looks above normal temps with highs in the 65 to 70 degree range north and 75 to 80 degrees range south.
