Most of the Commonwealth has the Slight Risk for severe thunderstorms today, mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours, capable of damaging wind gusts and large hail. Any storms that develop today, though, will also be capable of heavy downpours and frequent lightning. Our atmosphere in central Virginia continues to be very warm and moist this week. When a weak upper-level disturbance passes overhead today, that could enhance our severe threat with storms that develop.
We'll provide frequent updates on air and online as needed. Stay with CBS6, we'll keep you ahead of the storm!
