Flooding could become a concern later this week as storm chances ramp up
It's been more of the same today as temperatures are jumping close to 90 degrees this afternoon. The heat and humidity is aiding the development of isolated storms. Don't be surprised if you come across a downpour and/or lightning through the evening. We should have enough breaks in the clouds tonight to view the Perseid meteor shower as it peaks.
A front dips south into our vicinity Wednesday, which should allow for slightly higher coverage of showers and storms in the afternoon. A small risk of localized flooding has been posted for areas along and west of the Blue Ridge.
The risk for flooding could be more widespread and impactful later this week and this weekend as the front and tropical moisture combine for numerous storms. If you're looking for some drier days, you may have to wait until next week.
