Storms possible again today – Some severe – some with heavy rains – Not a Storm Free weekend Forecast!

Yesterday's rains occurred over the southern half of Virginia and over North Carolina. Today, scattered convection will again fire across the region with some severe and heavy rain.

The weekend looks less dry, and I could kick myself as I felt that a clear weekend was not entirely possible. Unlike recent days with a high chance of storms, chances will lessen. It is typical summer time when afternoon storms could fire and thus we have a continued chance of storms.Things will finally dry out, based on current models, by Monday.

Highs will remain in the 80s through the weekend.. upper 80s south, lower 80s north. Of note, after this stalled front pushes further south, Virginians could see a much nicer few days with highs in the 70s!

A return to storms will begin Wednesday next week, area wide Thursday.

The Tropics remain quiet for now.
