Thunderstorms Still Possible TonightFebruary 29th, 2012 at 1:18 pm by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
If you have noticed its become more humid today as a warm front continues its push to our north. The Storm Prediction Center has Hampton Roads in a Slight Risk of severe weather for this afternoon and especially tonight. The biggest risk will be for hail and gusty winds. With the thunderstorms the temperatures are going to stay very mild tonight with lows in the upper 50s.
This low pressure system is all associated with a larger storm affecting the entire eastern half of the country.
See the curvature of the clouds and snow in Minnesota? See how the line of snow/rain is going all the way down through Atlanta. That band of moisture is the source for the rain and storms we could see tonight. Some of the computer models are hinting at showers this evening and some are saying overnight. There is a bit of disagreement between these models, but there is still a good chance for activity for the rest of this day and tonight as well as the severe storms in Kentucky weaken and then move in to our area.
Tomorrow the temperatures are looking even warmer across the area, highs will spike to be in the upper 70s across the Southside, but remain near 70 for the Peninsula and north. We should have partly cloudy skies on our Thursday, by Friday temperatures will settle back down to the 60s.
