Nice dry stretch of weather!

After weeks of relentless rain chances, we have a change this week! Dry conditions with Temperatures pretty much hovering in the 80s to lower 90s.

Northern areas (Frederickburg to Charlottesville to Chincoteague) low to mid 80s through Wednesday. Near 90 through Friday.

South, mid and Upper 80s through Wednesday, 90 - 93 degrees Thursday through Saturday.

As of now, calling for a Sunny week, but Wednesday could hold an isolated storm, and maybe a better chance of a shower or storm over Southwestern VA and North Carolina Friday.

All for now! Enjoy the weather!

HOT weather on the way! Storminess too!

Rainy in northern Virginia and Maryland this morning! Showers and storms should clear the area later this morning making way for a very warm to hot day! Temp will soar to the mid 80s north and the Low and Mid 90s across the southern regions. Hot conditions will remain through Saturday along with rain chances as showers and storms will be possible, especially Friday Night and Saturday. Temps will be upper 80s to mid 90s across the region.

Though drier air does make it to the area, widespread 80s to low 90s seem common through mid next week, about 80 northern areas and about 90 in the southern parts of Virginia and North Carolina.

All for now

Rainy south of Charlottesville to Fredericksburg and south - Cool and Cloudy north

A lot of rain had caused some flooding in Southwestern Virginia and most of Western North Carolina. Rain looks to continue in these regions while the Northern third of Virginia into Maryland will be cloudy and cool with maybe a few showers. Unseasonably cool with highs mainly in the 70s.

A repeat tomorrow on cooler conditions, but rain will make as spread further north. Highs in places will struggle out of the 60s and others low to mid 70s. Again, with higher rain amounts in the south, flooding is possible.

Summer like conditions make a return and last straight through the weekend with highs rebounding to the 80s Thursday and then mid and upper 80s to low 90s through the weekend. Humid air with afternoon storms will be possible daily.

All for now!

Meso Convective Complex across southern 2/3rds of VA

A meso convective complex (MCC) has developed over the southern 2/3rds
of Virginia. Rain will come to an end fown there a bit later today.
For nothern areas, temps will be cooler with highs in the 70s. Cooler
air for region the next few days as highs remain in the 70s and maybe
60s Wednesday, especially in the north. Moist air could mean night
time drizzle. Winds along the coast to increase and dangerous rip
tides will form. Scattered showers and isolated storm chances increase
Thursday and temps rebound to around 80

Storms possible again today - Some severe - some with heavy rains - Not a Storm Free weekend Forecast!

Yesterday's rains occurred over the southern half of Virginia and over North Carolina. Today, scattered convection will again fire across the region with some severe and heavy rain.

The weekend looks less dry, and I could kick myself as I felt that a clear weekend was not entirely possible. Unlike recent days with a high chance of storms, chances will lessen. It is typical summer time when afternoon storms could fire and thus we have a continued chance of storms.Things will finally dry out, based on current models, by Monday.

Highs will remain in the 80s through the weekend.. upper 80s south, lower 80s north. Of note, after this stalled front pushes further south, Virginians could see a much nicer few days with highs in the 70s!

A return to storms will begin Wednesday next week, area wide Thursday.

The Tropics remain quiet for now.

More Severe storms today with very heavy rains. High winds and hail the likely threat but isolated tornadoes possible. More showers and storms tomorrow before a drier weekend. Some concern for rain returning Sunday. More to come on that. Upper 70s to low 80s today and tomorrow. 80 to 85 this weekend.

More Severe Today! Join me on Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace

With a frontal boundary around the PA/MD border and moist unstable air, thunderstorms are a good bet across the region today. They do not look as widespread as yesterday. Today's best threat will be along and west of the mountains. I do suspect other storms will be severe as well. High winds and hail will be the biggest threat from these storms.

Tonight after midnight looks like even more rain possible. Tomorrow may be the rainiest day of the week and I suspect a Flood Watch, especially in the northern Virginia and Maryland regions as Flash Flood values are very low! To see the Precipitation outlook for the next few days:

It is possible that the weekend will be a dry one. Less chances of storms in the North Friday.Saturday should be dry for most. Sunday will see a return to more isolated storms, especially in the south. Temperatures will be around 80 north and mid 80s south.

Severe Storms are popping up all over Northern VA and MD! Severe watch up until 9pm in these regions. MANY warnings already

Thunderstorms blooming this morning. More likely as day progresses

I already see a few warnings for Severe Storms and in the DC area the storms are actually building this morning!! After the morning batch, more storms are likely this afternoon as the atmosphere should destabilize further. I also suspect that there will be will be severe storms with high winds and hail being the main threat. Please stay tuned to media and web outlets for watches and/or warnings.

initially ranked an EF-1

Chance of storms a bit better than first thought.

Today we will see temps in the mid and upper 80s. In the north we have
a better chance of storms than first thought.

Tomorrow has even a better chance and will likely contain some severe weather.

Storms a plenty this week!

After Today's nice weather,a  turn to more stormy patter sill ensue! We will see a daily chance of storms. Some could be Severe tomorrow and Tuesday. Highs will generally be in the 80s, but people getting north of a back door cold front will have a chance for much cooler weather.

Daily a chance of storms will continue until next weekend. So why has it been so wet? I will be looking into this over the next few days and see if I can provide some insight.

If you have not checked out the Youtube videos I posted yesterday, I recommend taking a look!

Vortex 2 and the TWC capture a Tornado. One of the best sets of videos I have seen!

The research on this one will be amazing! Historical really. This is like when Dorothy went up on the movie Twister but more realistic! Awesome to watch!
There are more parts, but the above gets you what you want to see.
Dr. Steve Forbes gives commentary and it is very interesting. Very good information, awesome vidoe, and teh research from Vortex 2
