Despite the high humidity, breaks in the clouds and warming temperatures, most of the storms stayed out of the region Wednesday. We continue to watch upstream, with several clusters of showers and storms developing this evening in Ohio.
These may impact the region overnight with a few scattered showers, mainly along and west of the Blue Ridge. Many areas remain dry. Lows drop to the mid and upper 60s.
Thursday, a few isolated early morning showers may help stabilize the atmosphere with a few scattered storms in the afternoon. By the evening, models continue to show a storm cluster approaching from West Virginia by early evening. This may produce a few severe storms with the potential for damaging wind gusts and localized downpours. We remain very warm and muggy with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s.

A front lingers nearby this weekend. This means we can't take out the storm chances, but don't believe either day will be a washout.
Look for partly sunny skies, muggy conditions and much cooler highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.
