Severe Thunderstorms Possible Today

Scattered rain showers linger across the area this morning. These are ahead of a front that will pass the area later this afternoon. The atmosphere should become even more unstable during that time, especially if we see any sunshine.

Wind shear also looks very strong. This means that we will have the threat for fast-moving thunderstorms capable of damaging winds and possibly an isolated tornado. This will occur anywhere from 3 to 9 PM and includes most of central and eastern Virginia.

We are watching this closely and will have more updates soon!
