Storms Possible Later Tuesday

Strong to severe storms are possible late Tuesday afternoon and evening in Central Virginia as an upper wave tracks through the Great Lakes region today and provides lift for storms. Thunderstorms are expected to develop mid-afternoon in the higher terrain of western Virginia, then track southeast through the late afternoon and evening into the rest of central Virginia. These storms will be capable of damaging straight-line winds, frequent lightning, and heavy downpours. There may be some hail in the strongest storms, as well. Ample low-level moisture is in the Mid-Atlantic to serve as fuel for storms with hot temperatures this afternoon generating convection. Stay with CBS6, we'll keep you ahead of the storm!
