RICHMOND, Va. -- The threat for thunderstorms will increase during the afternoon. Localized rain totals of over an inch will be possible.

Some strong to severe storms are possible, mostly south and east of Richmond.

For the stronger storms that develop, the main severe threat will be damaging wind gusts, but some large hail is also possible.

There will be enough wind shear around to allow some storms to rotate, so a few isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. This is a very low chance, and this will be for eastern and southeastern Virginia.

One important note — the morning rain and storm activity has lowered the severe risk for much of the area. However, enough ingredients remain in place this afternoon for at least the potential for some stronger storms to develop.

Rain and storm chances will diminish this evening.
