FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Strong to severe storms possible Wednesday


FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY Wednesday for isolated strong storm possible, mainly SE VA in the early afternoon.

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has backed down its severe weather potential for central VA. Almost all of the area is now under a marginal risk (green colored counties) of strong to severe storms.

The main concern with any isolated storm that could form would be strong wind gusts.

Scattered showers move in west of 95 during the morning hours. As the line tracks east, a few isolated strong storms could develop in southeastern VA in the early afternoon hours. Here's a look at what 1pm could look like:

All the showers and storms move out of Virginia by 3pm. Evening sunshine will prevail and mostly clear skies can be expected tonight.

Winds will be strong through the day. South wind ahead of the front will be between 15-25mph with gusts up to 35mph. Behind the front, a west northwest wind will continue to be strong at 15-25mph. The WNW wind will usher in some much cooler temperatures and drier air tonight into tomorrow.

High temperatures Thursday only in the 50's with plenty of sunshine.
