Saturday's Storms Don't Stop the Cavs

I'll break down Saturday's severe weather and let you know when we could see more.

Saturday's severe weather slowed a lot of people down, included Coach O'Connor and the UVa baseball team. The ump. saw lightning during the 4th inning and called a rain delay out at Davenport field. We also had several reports all across central VA of strong storms producing plenty of lightning and large hail. Near Ivy in Albemarle Co. 1.5" hail fell, that's the size of a ping pong ball. In Nelson Co. plenty reports of golf ball size hail and trees down.

The storms Continue to lose steam as we lose our daytime heating, but don't worry we have another chance to see storms on Sunday. As we start the day we will have partly sunny skies and by mid morning showers will return. The rain will become more widespread by noon and best chance for pop-up thunderstorms will be between noon and 5pm. Severe weather will be at a minimum, but we do have the potential to see isolated severe storms.

By Sunday evening our skies will clear and for the majority of the upcoming work week we get to enjoy sunshine and cooler temperatures. The mercury will be back where it should be, the low 80s and that's going to feel amazing! Perfect running weather (still recovering from my fall!)

Hopefully everyone stayed safe today.

Cheers for now!

Melanie
