RICHMOND, Va. --   Thursday 9:30 p.m. update:  the threat for severe weather has ended.

Previous post from 3 p.m.

An approaching disturbance ahead of a cold front will cause storms across the area late Thursday afternoon into the evening.

Storms will start off widely scattered, but a line of stronger storms is expected in the early evening.  The highest chance for storms in the metro is between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Storms will exit southeastern Virginia by late evening.

Some of the thunderstorms may produce damaging wind gusts.  The threat for this is higher north of I-64.

Due to the muggy conditions, storms will produce torrential downpours.  Some flooding is possible, especially in areas that see repeated storms.
