First Alert Weather Day: Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 10pm Monday

Strong storms possible with damaging wind gusts

Late-day storms possible; much cooler Tuesday

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 10pm for most areas north of I-64 where severe weather is more likely Monday evening.

Damaging wind gusts will be the primary threat with these storms.

There is a marginal (low) chance for strong to severe storms Monday late in the afternoon and evening. Everyone in central Virginia is included and a sliver of Northern VA is in the “slight risk” zone.

The main concern with any storms that develop will be heavy rain and strong gusty winds potentially capable of knocking down trees and power lines.

Monday will also be another hot afternoon with high temperatures in the mid 90s and a Heat Index near 105 degrees.

Be sure to have the NBC12 weather app handy, especially Monday evening!

The cold front arriving tonight will bring a HUGE drop in Temperatures. Tomorrow will likely only be in the low 70s for most of the day!
