Scattered Storms Now… Very Hot Weather Ahead… Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (1).jpgGood Thursday afternoon! We’ve had a few storms fire up today over the western side of the state, in-fact, some isolated areas of wind damage were produced by some storms today. As of 4pm, storms are now to the south of I-20 and moving southeast. We can expect a mild evening, with temperatures dropping into the 70s after 10pm.

Friday and Saturday will include a fair chance of scattered showers and storms. We’ll be on the eastern edge of an intense upper air ridge, and we often deal with an enhancement in the number of storms in relation to the ridge to our west and trough to the east. It will not rain all day, but I would keep the umbrella handy, as a few passing downpours will be possible at any point Friday and Saturday, especially during the afternoon and evening.

On Sunday and Monday, the intense upper air ridge will progress eastward and over our area. This will send temperatures into the upper 90s, with a heat index nearing 110 to 112 by Monday and Tuesday.

A weak surface front will likely bring an increase in the number of scattered storms on Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

The tropics are quiet in the Atlantic Basin.
