Scattered Storms Likely Ahead… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4:35pm #alwx @wvua23

adsf3.pngGood Wednesday afternoon! After a mild and humid start to the day, scattered showers and storms have developed this afternoon. This is a deal where storms are hit or miss. Some areas will get a passing downpour while others stay dry. A few storms will remain possible overnight, but widespread rain is unlikely. Expect lows in the middle 70s.

Thursday and Friday, we’ll increase the chance of showers and storms to 70%. It will not rain all day and some may miss the storms, but there is a better chance of you getting a passing downpour. Highs will drop into the upper 80s to near 90 due to more extensive cloud coverage. The higher chance of a passing storm will be during the afternoon, but keep in mind, a morning storm or overnight storm will be possible in this humid airmass and a surface front nearby.

Saturday and Sunday, the number of storms may decrease a little, but I still expect a few passing, mainly afternoon storms. Highs will top out near 90 this weekend.

In the tropics, Tropical Storm Debby is hanging on by a threat across the north Atlantic. This storm will remain small and weak and will not impact land. Debby should fizzle out tonight.
