Staying unsettled into the weekend, stronger to severe storms possible on Saturday

As low pressure aloft and a stalled frontal boundary linger over our area, we'll remain stormy at times through this coming weekend. While we won't see the widespread rain we saw yesterday evening, we are expecting hit-and-miss showers & t-storms into tonight. We'll otherwise be partly cloudy, foggy at times, and mild with lows in the 60s.

Locally heavy downpours will still be possible, and with the already soaked ground, we could see more flooding/flash flooding issues arise tonight in spots. Stay weather aware!

Severe weather isn't looking likely today, but with more heat in the forecast for tomorrow, a few storms could become strong to severe Saturday afternoon/evening. Highs tomorrow will top off in the low to upper 80s for most. Scattered showers & t-storms are looking likely during the heat of the day (mainly after lunch-time) through sun-down Saturday evening. Storms should fizzle out with the loss of heating into Saturday night. Lows should fall into the 60s.

The main threats with any stronger storms will be isolated damaging wind gusts (in excess of 58 MPH), hail, and torrential rainfall. Though not a major concern, some rotating storms or a brief, isolated tornado is not out of the question. Make sure you have a way to receive severe weather alerts!

Sunday is looking similar, but the severe risk should be minimal. We still look partly cloudy, with the chance for showers & thunderstorms during the afternoon (hit or miss). Highs on Sunday should top off in the low to mid 80s.

Next week at a glance is still looking a bit stormy, especially as Hurricane Isasais looks to brush the US East coast- this could push lots of tropical moisture our way by Tuesday into Wednesday. Make sure to tune in to WVVA NEWS AT 5,6, 10 (CW) and 11 PM for the latest full forecast!
