There is a threat of severe weather today as a strong front comes through the area. Today will feature Gusty Wind, Heavy rain, Severe Thunderstorms, and there is a risk of some Tornadoes. The heavy rain has already been fairly heavy with .75 to as much as an inch in the SW part of the state. Rain, generally 1 – 2 inches, will also be likely, with some seeing between 2 and 3 inches in the SW part of the state. Heavy rains in thunderstorms could cause flash flooding rains. As the the thunderstorms move through, there will be the threat of high winds, hail, and even tornadoes. The threat is especially high in SE VA, North Carolina, and South Carolina. These areas are even highlighted by the Severe Storms Prediction Center with a moderate risk for Severe Weather! Again, High Winds, Hail, and possible Tornadoes are outlined for this region http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/day1otlk.html
As a help to a friend wanted to mention it is that time of year for Aeration and his company will help you in Central and Eastern Loudoun VA as well as Western Fairfax (http://aerationcorps.com). He is also an awesome lawn equipment repair company as well so just ask him if you need your mower tuned up or fixed!
All for now!
