Severe storms with strong winds, heavy rainfall Sunday

Posted at 9:19 AM, Jul 08, 2023

RICHMOND, Va. -- A storm system will bring storms Sunday afternoon and evening, and these will be more widespread than the storms on Saturday.

A severe thunderstorm watchis in effect for the entire CBS 6 viewing area.


Storms will be most likely in the metro in the 1-4 p.m. time frame.


The main batch of strong to severe storms will exit eastern Virginia by 8 p.m. A few additional isolated showers or storms will be possible from mid-evening through the overnight.


Unlike the past few days, these storms will move more quickly. The muggy conditions will allow for torrential downpours, and some locations may get hit by a few different storm clusters.

A flood watch has been issued for the I-95 corridor and points east. Rainfall totals of 1-3 inches are possible, so areas affected by heavy rain the past two days will flood more easily.
