Severe storm threat and a big warm up… We will see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies through the day with a round of showers and storms by the late afternoon and evening. Strong to severe storms are possible, with gusty winds, heavy downpours, and hail possible. The biggest potential for severe storms will be on the Middle Peninsula and the Eastern Shore. Highs will warm to the mid 70s tomorrow, about 10 degrees above normal for this time of year.

Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week with highs climbing into the low and mid 80s. Another wave of showers and storms will move through tomorrow afternoon to evening. Strong to severe storms are possible again.

Thursday will bring yet another wave of scattered showers and storms as a cold front moves through. Highs will reach the upper 70s on Thursday before cooler air moves in. We will cool to the low 60s for Friday and Saturday with low rain chances.
