First Alert Weather Day continues for Tuesday. There is a Heat Advisory from the National Weather Service for southeastern VA, including metro RVA. While high temperatures should stay in the mid 90s, like Monday, slightly higher dew points and humidity will cause somewhat higher heat index levels, potentially in 100-105 range.
There will also be the risk for severe thunderstorms each afternoon, Tuesday and Wednesday, with a marginal risk from the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) each afternoon and evening. Damaging wind gusts will be possible.
Remember your heat safety tips:
A cold front will drop south of the area later Wednesday..
That front pushes just south of the area by Thursday and Friday allowing temperatures to remain closer to seasonal norms for this time of year (upper 80s).
