RICHMOND, Va. -- Much of Virginia will have a threat for severe weather Monday. The main threats will be damaging winds and large hail.

The best window for severe weather is between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m.

The cold front will slow its progress as it becomes parallel to the upper level flow.

This means it will hang around on Tuesday, with a few waves of low pressure inducing showers and thunderstorms across the region. Highs on Tuesday will be close to 70°.

Our weather will remain somewhat unstable the second half of the week, as an upper low level moves in from the Ohio Valley.

We’ll be a bit below normal temperature-wise, with highs mainly in the mid and upper 60s.

Overnight lows will dip into the upper 40s and low 50s.

While not all areas will see rain every day, there will be a few scattered showers and thunderstorms around each afternoon and evening.
