Tonight's Outlook

We're still on track to see some storms this evening and tonight. Here's my latest thinking on what we can expect.

You can definitely walk outside on this Monday and feel the changes that have taken place over the past few days. Temperatures are much warmer, we have more moisture in the air, and we have gusty south breezes. All of these changes are taking place in front of a potent cold front that will cross the area Monday night. As this front comes through, our skies could once again turn stormy.

Right now, I'm not expecting a major severe weather outbreak here in central Virginia. All of the ingredients aren't quite coming together for that to happen. That being said, as a line of storms develops during the overnight, it's not out of the question for us to see some isolated severe storms. The main threat with any storms will be gusty winds, possibly in excess of 40 miles per hour. The timing still looks to be late in the evening or into the first part of the overnight (similar to last Monday's cold front). Behind this front, temperatures will cool dramatically for Tuesday. An area of low pressure will develop along the front and that will keep skies cloudy for Tuesday along with scattered showers and even a few thunderstorms. Storms that develop on Tuesday afternoon will have the potential to produce small hail (due to all of the cold air aloft), but any hail should stay below severe limits.

As always, we appreciate any weather watcher reports you may have to give. You can always contact us through our Twitter account (@CBS19Weather), Facebook (www.facebook.com/Newsplex), or you can drop us an e-mail (weather@newsplex.com). We'd love to hear from you!
