A weakening cold front will move through Southwest VA and eventually stall over areas east of I-81 later this afternoon. Several waves of energy will ride along the stalled boundary next few days, triggering showers and storms.
This afternoon, scattered showers and storms are expected. A few of these storms could be strong to severe this afternoon and evening.
The Storm Prediction Center has outlined parts of the Roanoke Valley, Central Virginia, Southside, and parts of the New River Valley in a marginal risk for severe weather. While not everyone will see a storm in their area, any storm that becomes severe today poses the main threat of damaging winds.
After sunset, the coverage and intensity of any storms will gradually diminish. However, scattered showers and a few storms will remain possible up to around midnight, mainly east of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The rest of the week will feature more of a typical summer-time weather pattern with a daily threat for a few showers and storms during the afternoon.
Thursday and Friday, look for more scattered showers and storms.
Thanks to high pressure, drier weather settles in for the weekend.
Stay safe and healthy.
