First Alert Weather Day Thursday: Isolated evening storm could be strong to severe
Gusty winds are the main concern, but a brief tornado can’t be ruled out
RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A strong cold front today could produce an isolated strong to severe storm during the evening.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of central VA in marginal risk, which is a level 1 out of 5 on the severe weather threat scale, meaning isolated severe storms are possible.
Our main concern with any storm that do develops are strong gusty winds. However, we can’t rule out a brief tornado.
Scattered showers and an isolated strong storm will be possible ahead of the cold front moving through during the evening. Peak storm time in RVA 7-10 p.m. Showers taper with clearing skies overnight. Rain totals 1/4″expected.
Most of our NBC12 viewers will get non-severe storms, but we are calling it a First Alert Weather Day because isolated severe storms are possible. Be sure to check with Megan and Rachel for the latest on TV during this evening.
