Pinpoint Weather: Strong storms possible Sunday afternoon and evening

Weather Blog

The quiet and dry weather we experienced Saturday will come to an end Sunday as showers and storms return to the area.

A system will impact Southwest and Central Virginia Sunday. Scattered showers and storms will have the chance to develop during the afternoon and evening hours. Due to the heat in place, a few of those storms may become strong to severe. The Storm Prediction Center has placed a Marginal Risk for severe weather over much of the region. A few isolated storms may become capable of producing damaging wind gusts, small hail, and downpours. The highest risk for severe weather will be along and west of the Blue Ridge Parkway, although some storms may move further east. Not everyone will see rain, but be sure to stay alert.

Once the frontal system passes through, drier weather will dominate the area. There is a slight chance for isolated showers and storms Monday, but otherwise skies will be mostly sunny through Wednesday. Prepare for the heat, as high temperatures will range from the upper 80s and into the upper 90s for the week ahead.
