RICHMOND, Va. -- A warm front moved through the area overnight, and it is a lot warmer and more humid.  Highs will reach the upper 70s and lower 80s today.  It will be breezy with gusts over 20 mph, but some showers and storms could produce isolated gusts over 40 mph.

A wave of showers with embedded thunderstorms will track across Virginia Sunday morning into mid-afternoon.

The best chance of storms in the metro is between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Storms will exit eastern and southeastern Virginia by late afternoon.  Behind the front, there will be rapid clearing with sunshine.

Until the front passes by, there is a risk of some isolated severe storms.

The main threat would be strong wind gusts.  There will be a little shear in the atmosphere, so some rotation cannot be ruled out in a storm or two.

Skies will be mainly clear tonight and Monday.
