Scattered severe weather moving into our area

Watches mean severe weather is possible - just be weather aware. Then, a line of thunderstorms will move in from the Gulf.

Once the severe storm threat is over we'll still have to contend with a flooding threat. We had one tornado warning in Camden and Glynn Counties with no reports of any damage and several warned thunderstorms. A brief spin-up tornado can not be ruled out, but the majority of the storm damage will likely occur due to straight line thunderstorm winds.

Spring weather will temporarily cede dominance to a cooler regime behind an approaching storm system. Chances of rough stuff increase southward toward the North Carolina border but the Fredericksburg area could see some strong winds and very heavy rain from storms this afternoon followed by a squall line after dark.

There is still a 60% chance for showers and a few more storms tonight.

Much of next week's weather looks quite nice with a gradual warming trend through Wednesday.

An added factor is southeasterly surface wind flow expected to develop ahead of the storms, creating a "veering profile" as winds in higher levels of the atmosphere blow from the south and southwest.

It's also going to be a rather chilly evening.

Timing: Storms will move in from the west around 6 a.m. and travel east throughout the morning into the mid-afternoon.
