Hot Days… Scattered PM Storms… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4:15pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has been very hot this afternoon, with an air temperature in the upper 90s and a heat index approaching 100 to 107 in many locations. A few scattered storms have popped up this afternoon, but the number of storms is much fewer than what we had yesterday afternoon. The risk of a passing afternoon storm will diminish shortly after sunset this evening.

We continue on the east edge of an upper air ridge, and small scale disturbances will continue to ride along the edge of the ridge and into our area all week and through early next week. We’re stuck in a very consistent pattern, which will allow the risk of scattered, mainly afternoon and evening storms to remain in the forecast. With a very moist environment in place, there’s a chance of a passing overnight or morning storm at any point over the next 5 to 7 days, however, the best chance of getting a storm in your area will be between noon and 10pm. While there is a 40% risk of rain each day this week, that also means, there is a chance you will not get rain on any particular day. Since storms are scattered, some of you will get a passing downpour one day and some of you will not. The best word of advice in a setup like this is to keep an umbrella handy. Expect highs to remain in the middle 90s, with lows in the middle 70s.
