RICHMOND, Va. -- A strong storm system moving across the southern United States will push rain into our area Sunday evening into Sunday night.

Rain will turn steady and heavier between midnight and daybreak.

There will be a few breaks, but rain will be heavy at times through midday.

Rain will turn more scattered after noon, and breaks and the clouds will occur in spots by mid to late afternoon.

The storm will push warmer and more humid air into the region. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s. As the powerful storm system and cold front move through, thunderstorms will occur. These storms will be more likely east of I-95.

If all the conditions can come together, some severe weather is possible. The main threat will be strong wind gusts. However, with some wind shear present, a few rotating storms cannot be ruled out. The best chance of this will be across far southeastern Virginia, closer to Norfolk and Virginia Beach.

Rainfall totals in excess of an inch are likely, with isolated totals of 2"+ possible.

It will be much colder behind the storm, lining up with the start of December. Highs will be in the 40s Tuesday and Wednesday, with overnight lows in the 20s to around 30.

Highs will get back into the 50s later in the week.
