Putting Anthony to shame with the lateness of my forecasting.
At 254AM, ET, Richmond was reporitng a temperature of 74 degrees with a dew point of 72. There was rain found towards Washington, and fog found in Petersburg just to the south. The base of an upper level trough founded through West Virginia and was producing quite a bit of rainfall in the Mountain State, and was producing a lower level eddy that would carry through to the mid-Atlantic.
The wave will move quickly through Virginia, but will be an efficient rain producer as it moves through the region. Thunderstorms will be heavy along the coast, and will potentially be severe. Interior portions of the state won’t see the strong thunderstorms, but from late morning through the early afternoon, heavy rain will be likely. The wave will move off shore, while a stronger jet feature will begin to move in on Sunday. This will ensure clouds stay in the area, however flow will be counterproductive to shower and thunderstorm production, thanks to the now off shore feature. It will remain warm and very humid for the next several days.
