May 24, 2011 - Another Summer-Like Day

Dewpoints stay in the 60's while temperatures return to the 80's as our summer-like weather pattern continues. More information in today's blog!

While the main severe weather threat stays off the the west, we are still placed in slight risk for severe weather in the Valley. This is mainly for pop-up storms that may have enough energy to produce damaging wind gusts or large hail. We are *by no means* expecting an outbreak of severe weather - in fact, I'd be surprised if there was more than a handful of storms affecting us Tuesday.

Monday's severe weather stayed to the north, with tornadoes possible through Pennsylvania. The northern portion of the Shenandoah Valley experienced some severe thunderstorm warnings, but overall the day was quiet.

Tuesday should be very similar - though we may get a few more peeks of sunshine, especially in the late morning and early afternoon hours. Though there may only be a few storms, it only takes one bad storm to make us realize that it's still severe weather season.

Wednesday may bring a few more storms to the region, but once again they will be few in quantity. SPC continues to keep us in slight risk through Wednesday, with lesser chances (5%) of severe storms on Thursday.
