RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - First Alert Weather Day again today (Thursday) for scattered storms into the evening as a cold front approaches and sets up in northern VA.

Damaging straight-line winds plus flooding of poor drainage areas is possible with storms that do develop. Storm chance drops off after sunset.

The Storm Prediction Center has trimmed back the slight risk area to now only include counties south of I-64 (counties in yellow).

Not everyone sees a storm Thursday evening, but neighborhoods that do will need to stay aware for damaging wind gusts.

This unsettled pattern sticks with us into the start of the weekend. A few scattered showers will again be possible Friday. Scattered showers and storms are likely at any point in the day Saturday. A break in this pattern arrives Sunday with lower humidity expected!
