RICHMOND, Va. -- Last Sunday, much of our area picked up one to three inches of rain.  For this Sunday, a storm will bring more rain, but totals will not be as heavy.

Showers will move into our area Saturday night.  A warm front will push northward Sunday morning, bringing in warmer and more humid air.  There will be occasional showers in the morning through midday.

A cold front will trigger thunderstorms are possible as the cold front moves through.  The best chance for storms in the metro will be 10 am until around 2 pm.  Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Clearing will occur behind the front later in the day.  The storm threat will continue for southeastern Virginia through late afternoon and early evening.

Some of the storms with the cold front could be severe, with strong winds as the main threat.  An isolated tornado cannot be ruled, mostly in the slight risk area in southeastern Virginia:

Rainfall amounts will generally range from 1/4" to 1/2".  Localized totals around an inch are possible where thunderstorms occur.

We will continue to clear out Sunday night, and Monday will be sunny with highs in the lower 70s.
