Severe weather threat late Sunday

Get ready for a hot and very humid Saturday with just isolated storms chances around 30%. Highs Saturday will easily be in the low 90s.  Sunday though will be a far different day as a strong cold front sweeps in from the west. This strong cold front for early June will move into that hot and humid airmass and lead to strong to possibly severe late day storms.

The Threat:

For this time of the year to have a medium to high threat like this is rare. This is usually a threat we would see in the spring, like April or May. The biggest threat will be east of I-77 and into the East and East Central part of the state up into the Tidewater of Virginia.

The Impacts:

The main impacts will be straight line winds or downburst type winds. Though hail and even an isolated tornado can;t be ruled out. Alos with the tropical nature of the atmosphere these storms will be able to produce very efficient rainfall rates and flash flooding.


The Timing:

The main threat will be the late day, talking after 2 pm for the mountains and foothills, then after 4 pm for the Piedmont and after 6 pm for the Sandhills.
