Storms are on the menu for Thursday in Northern Virginia

Nova Forecast

Some t-showers possible overnight

HAGERSTOWN, MD. (WDVM) — OVERNIGHT, EXPECT A GRADUAL CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO MOVE IN FROM THE SOUTH AS A WARM FRONT APPROACHES THE AREA. TEMPERATURES UNDER MOSTLY CLOUDY TO CLOUDY SKIES ARE EXPECTED TO HOLD IN THE 60S. HEADING INTO THURSDAY, STORMS WILL DEVELOP EARLY IN THE AFTERNOON EAST OF THE APPALACHIANS BRINGING THE RISK OF DAMAGING WINDS TO THE REGION. IN ADDITION, WINDS WILL HELP TO KEEP ANY STORM MOVING OVER THE SAME AREA, POTENTIALLY RESULTING IN A RISK OF FLASH FLOODING. RAIN AMOUNTS BY MOST FORECAST MODELS RANGE BETWEEN A HALF AN INCH TO AN INCH AND A HALF. ALL STORMS WILL START TO WIND DOWN BY MID-EVENING BUT MAY LINGER WELL INTO THE NIGHT ACROSS SOUTHERN MD. OUR WEATHER TRULY BEGINS TO IMPROVE FRIDAY AFTERNOON, BUT ESPECIALLY BY FRIDAY NIGHT, AS HIGH PRESSURE ONCE AGAIN INFLUENCES THE AREA. THIS WEEKEND IS FORECAST TO BE DRY, WARM, AND HUMID AND THE MAINLY DRY WEATHER WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MONDAY. TEMPERATURES SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY WILL BE IN THE UPPER 80S TO MIDDLE 90S EACH DAY.

Thursday there is a marginal risk of severe storms ( highlighted in yellow). That does include basically all areas east of the I-81. Stay tuned to WDVM for the latest alerts posted. – Scott Sumner
