Showers and Storms Expected Overnight
A powerful upper-level storm system and associated cold front move through central Virginia tonight, resulting in numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms across the area. The strongest storms will produce small hail and wind gusts to 30 mph as well as occasional lightning. Much colder air will be moving into the area after midnight, and the rain could change to or mix with a few snow flakes before ending. If this were to occur in the Richmond metro area, the most likely time would be between 3 AM and 6 AM. All precipitation will come to an end around sunrise Friday, with mostly sunny and blustery conditions expected during the day.
