NWS Says Heavy Rain Possible Sunday

July 7th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Cold front will slide southward into the region late Sunday and
cross the metro by early Monday. An upper level disturbance will
also cross the region during this time. These two factors,
combined with very high PW`s in excess of 2 inches, may result
in heavy rain with any storms. The main factor against flooding
is CAPE, because clouds may keep instability more limited on
Sunday than today, but its possible we need a flash flood watch
for Sunday. With minimal CAPE and shear, severe risk should be
lower than today. Highs will be in the upper 80s in general,
while lows will slip into the 60s outside the cities.

Front crosses the metro early Monday morning and clears the rest
of the forecast area by later in the afternoon. This will result
in a chance of showers and storms in central VA/Shenandoah
Valley on Monday, with a lower risk further north where drier
and more stable air will be building in. Temps and humidity
will both decline somewhat behind the front, with highs in the
80s. Lows at night will also drop into the 60s in most areas.
