RICHMOND, Va. --  Powerful storms brought gusty winds, heavy rain, frequent lightning and very large hail to the area on Saturday.


The cold front slipped to our south Saturday night, but will slowly push back northward Sunday into Sunday night.

There will be some passing heavier showers at times.  As a front lifts northward today, a few thunderstorms are possible.  The threat for severe weather is low, but a few stronger storms will be possible, mostly across far southern and southwestern Virginia.  If any storms do become severe, they will not be as widespread or violent as yesterday's.  However, stronger wind gusts and some hail will be possible in the strongest storms.

Storms will lift north of the area overnight.  Much of Memorial Day will be dry, but a few isolated storms are possible in the afternoon and early evening.  Areal coverage will be much less for Monday.
