Chasing records today, strong storms this afternoon
Damaging wind, large hail main threats
We had record-breaking heat over the weekend and it looks like we will be keeping the record books busy today.
Roanoke could make it a hat trick for breaking another record high temperature this afternoon.
Blacksburg could also shatter a record high today.
Lynchburg and Danville won’t be too far away from record-breaking heat.
All of this heat is being contained by a stationary boundary that is very close by.
A cluster of thunderstorms will ride that front from the Upper-Midwest right into the Mid-Atlantic. A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible for locations near the Roanoke Valley and points to the northeast. The time frame will be from 4 p.m. until about 9 p.m.
The main concern at this time includes damaging winds, small hail and torrential downpours.
We cannot rule out the possibility of a brief spin up north of the area.
