Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon and evening, and again in the afternoon and evening on Friday. The majority of locations will not receive rain, but those that do can expect very heavy rainfall, as well as frequent lightning, gusty winds, and small hail. The risk for severe weather today and Friday is low, but an isolated storm could briefly produce severe wind gusts or hail.
Saturday continues to look like a hot and humid day, with low rain chances. A slow-moving cold front will enter Virginia on Sunday, bringing a decent chance for showers and thunderstorms to central Virginia Sunday afternoon and evening.
The cold front will move very slowly through the Commonwealth on Monday and Tuesday, stalling at times and serving as a focus for shower and thunderstorm development. The best chance of rain in central Virginia associated with the front will be on Monday. The front will push south of the area on Tuesday, pushing the rain south of the area, and allowing milder and drier air to overspread the region.
Wednesday and Thursday should be dry and seasonal days as high pressure over New England keeps a pleasant air mass in place over the Mid-Atlantic.
Have a great Friday, and Stay with CBS 6, The Weather Authority.
