Tornado Warning in effect till Noon for Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford.
Light rain is tracking NE through RVA now…but the heaviest rain won’t arrive until closer to 1PM.
The severe thunderstorm warning expires for Orange, Greene, Albemarle, Madison, and Spotsylvania Counties.
The line of storms in western VA will have common wind gusts to 40 mph, local downpours and frequent lightning. There are currently no severe warnings or watches in central VA.
Tornado Warning for Danville expires. The storm does not show any signs of rotation at this time.
I expect storms to impact locations west of I-95 before Noon,
reaching Richmond’s metro area around lunch-time, and continuing through
the afternoon ahead of the cold front. The greatest threat for severe
weather will shift along and east of I-95 after Noon as the line of
storms marches eastward. Storms should exit our area to the southeast
A strong cold front is approaching Virginia from the west this
morning, and will spark widespread rain and some stronger storms. Strong
to severe storms are possible today. Our primary threat is for damaging
wind gusts in excess of 60 mph, but isolated, brief tornadoes are also
possible. Any storms, even if they do not have a severe thunderstorm warning on them, will be capable of downpours and frequent lightning.
