A Strong Low pressure system is moving our way and will bring widespread rain and thunderstorms to the CSRA. High pressure to our North will also be in the mix. This will give us Wedge conditions in the Northern areas and a warm front moving in from the south will give us 60s in the Southern part of the CSRA…that’s where we’ll see a better chance of strong storms. There will be a 30 degree temperature difference between Northern CSRA and Southern CSRA. I’m not expect a big Tornado outbreak, however an isolated Tornado is possible in the “Slight” risk area, again, the chance of a Tornado is low. The real issue with this system will be the rain as we have a Flash Flood WATCH in effect for all of the CSRA. This will be a changing forecast, be sure to stay with us on line, on-air, Facebook and Twitter for the very latest.
