We should reach the low to mid 70’s today with windy conditions and the chance of scattered thunderstorms. A line of storms has set up to our west as of 5 o’clock this morning.
Isolated strong to severe storms are possible in 2 waves Thursday. Between 5-9am, a line of showers and storms will cross the area. After that, isolated storms will be possible with a strong cold front passage across far eastern VA and lower MD from Noon to 4 pm. #vawx #mdwx pic.twitter.com/sBVzzOb9A4
