Severe T-Storm Watch Until 8PM Monday

A Severe T-Storm Watch is in effect for the yellow highlighted counties in southern Virginia until 8 p.m. Risks include quarter to ping pong sized hail, wind gusts to 70 mph, and lightning. We've had plenty of sunshine this morning and mid-day in central Virginia, which will enable better destabilization of the atmosphere this afternoon than if we had remained overcast. Good south and southwest flow has brought a decent return of low-level moisture into the area. In addition, an upper-level low pressure system is tracking through eastern Kentucky and Tennessee to the northeast, providing upper-level lift and support for storms in our region. We'll be monitoring for any storm development this afternoon and evening. Stay with CBS6, we'll keep you ahead of the storm.
