Scattered Storms Ahead… Tuesday Forecast Update -4:10pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! With a weak upper air disturbance overhead, plenty of gulf moisture and a seabreeze boundary moving north, there are numerous showers and storms on radar as of 4pm. While some areas have missed out on the rain today, the coverage of showers and storms has been rather high. Storms this afternoon are moving north or northeast. As temperatures cool this evening, expect the risk of storms to diminish after sunset. Some fog is possible overnight, especially in areas that got rain.

Wednesday and Thursday will feature hot days and mild nights. Expect the risk of scattered afternoon and evening storms, but not everyone will get rain. At this time, I don’t expect as high of a number of storms like we experienced today, but some of you will get a nice downpour or two.

An upper air trough will dig across the eastern half of the US on Friday through the weekend, and that will help to increase rain chances each day, especially during the afternoon hours. Most spots will get atleast one passing downpour over the weekend. Some storms that develop could become strong and produce very heavy rain for a brief amount of time. Rain chances will decrease early next week, as an upper air ridge builds into the area.

The tropics remain quiet…
