Yesterday featured quite a few storms and some produced some awesome shelf clouds. Check out WTVR 6 picture round up http://wtvr.com/2012/07/15/storm-pics-from-sunday-july-15/
Today starts several days of uncomfortable highs in the 90s and high humidity. Storm chances look best along ridges and along the coastal areas, and more towards the NC area.
Highs Tuesday look down right HOT with temps nearing 100 and heat indexes again climbing to 105 or higher in cities. Heat advisories yet again will be issued.
Wednesday a front will make its way through the area. This will bring down the temps in the north, but the humidity may be able to offset the cooler temps. Showers and storms will become more numerous with the chance of some severe. That front will continue pushing to the south but make slower progression across the southern half of VA and for NC. So that means a good chance of more showers and storms Thursday for these regions. Then the Front moves further south, giving NC one more day of stormy weather, but VA will be sitting cooler with less humidity Friday.
The whole region looks nice and seasonal temperature wise this weekend with lower humidity. I have a feeling we will see the return of the warmth next week, so do not get too used to it!
All for now!
