Good Sunday Evening!
Earlier on this morning we had some showers and heavier downpours move through Lynchburg and Central Virginia. Clouds held on through a good chunk of the afternoon for the rest of us. However, in the last few hours we’ve seen a few breaks in the clouds in the NRV and Southside. We’ll still keep the chance of showers and storms in the forecast as we progress through the evening. Coverage has been a little more widespread today than yesterday, but still not a wash. The SPC has kept our area in a slight risk of severe weather for this evening. However, once the sun sets our severe threat will start to go down. Main threats would include wind and hail.
Overnight, conditions quiet down. We’ll still keep a lingering shower, perhaps a storm overnight. Fog will be forming overnight, too. Lows tonight will fall back into the lower to middle 60s.
Memorial Day we’ll be watching a boundary cross the area in the morning, we’ll keep the clouds and a few showers, perhaps a storm in the morning hours of Monday while the front clears the area. It will stall just to our east for the afternoon on Monday. Therefore, we’ll keep an isolated storm in the forecast for the afternoon, but I think most area’s will stay dry for the holiday. Highs on Monday reach the lower to middle 80s.
Tuesday, aside from a very isolated storm will be dry. A stronger front arrives Wednesday which could bring a better chance of storms in the afternoon. Drying out Friday. The afternoon and evening rain chances return for the close of the week.
