Slight risk of severe storms today

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There's a slight risk of severe storms today. Several disturbances will ride up along a stalled front extending North/South from Northern Virginia through South Carolina. This will trigger off-and-on periods of heavy rain and strong thunderstorms. Damaging winds, hail and an isolated tornado or two are a possibility this afternoon and evening.

For this morning, expect heavy rain showers and a few thunderstorms. An isolated severe storm is possible.

The remnant moisture from Lee will be slow to depart this week, and that, in combination with an upper low to the west will keep conditions favorable for daily showers into the start of the weekend, although chances drop slightly each day.
