The Storm Prediction Center has placed Central and Northern Virginia in a LEVEL 2 *SLIGHT RISK* for severe weather Thursday afternoon and evening. The Slight Risk extends northward into Maryland, Eastern Pennsylvania and portions of New Jersey. TIMING FOR SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE BETWEEN 2:00 P.M. TO 10:00 P.M.
Between 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., we’ll watch additional showers and storms try to develop along and east of the Blue Ridge. The environment ahead of these storms will still be unstable and the potential for damaging winds and a few isolated tornadoes will be possible. The second round may be more focused towards Northern or North Central Virginia.
Localized flooding is another concern with some of these thunderstorms, especially across Hampton Roads (Southeastern Virginia.) Some models paint 2 to locally 3 inches of rain from this afternoon through early Friday morning. Flooding will be possible across low-lying and poor drainage areas.
