Northern Va. to see showers and storms Sunday

Nova Forecast

Clouds decided to come in early on this Saturday. This cover caused temperatures to remain in the mid to upper 70’s with only a few locations going up into the 80’s. As we head into the night, Saturday clouds will continue to be about with a chance of showers after midnight. A higher chance for showers and storms will come as we head into Sunday afternoon.

The Storm Prediction Center has put out a marginal risk of severe weather is possible on Sunday and Monday. A storm or two will be critical. Though the center of low pressure may be just off to the northwest, other factors limit the production of severe thunderstorms. This weather scenario could change if we see sunshine. Stay tuned for the latest.

Heavy rains will be possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. Many of us will see a good inch of rainfall as we head into this week. An additional inch is possible within heavy showers and storms.

We hope to be slightly drier as we head into the latter part of the week as the stationary system tries to move out as another system begins to come in for the next week.
