Another round of showers and thunderstorms are likely this afternoon as a cold front moves through the Valley. Severe storms are possible - read all about it in today's blog.

Showers and storms rolled through the Valley Wednesday bringing heavy rains and damaging wind gusts from Winchester to Harrisonburg and through to West Virginia.

Thursday paints a similar picture, with heat and humidity building throughout the day and a cold front moving through the region during the peak hours of daytime heating. The major threat with these storms will once again be damaging winds. Storms will build over the Appalachians throughout early Thursday afternoon before moving east later Thursday. We should expect the greatest storm activity from 3-7pm Thursday evening.

Gradual clearing is expected throughout Friday with drier air moving in. We'll truly feel the relief this weekend - don't forget to open up the windows Friday & Saturday night!
