Storms continue to bring heavy rain

Good Friday, everyone. Our super soaker of a summer pattern continues as we head into the start of the weekend. Rounds of thunderstorms continue to push across the Commonwealth, bringing enough heavy rain to cause local high water issues.

Today’s storms will be fairly common and some could be on the strong side. A few of the storms may even produce local severe wind gusts. The greatest threat comes from heavy rainfall, so watch the area water ways.

The rain and storms may impact the tonight’s kickoff of the high school football season:

Right now, I don’t expect it to rain all the time, but take the ponchos to be safe. Lightning, of course, is the main concern of the evening.

As mentioned, the waves of showers and storms keep coming at us through Saturday. The greatest concentration of rain for Saturday may wind up across the east and south, but anyone is fair game for the action. Highs stay below normal.

Sunday will find a scattering of showers and thunderstorms back on top of us with temps back in the low and middle 80s.

A fall cold front dives toward the region into the first half of next week, bringing an increase in showers and storms for Monday and Tuesday:

Strong storms and heavy rains are very possible with that setup. Yes… It’s more of the same in this amazingly un-August-like pattern.

The air crashing in behind the front will look and feel much, much better. A taste of late September may fill the air for a few days:
