Wind Advisories In Effect Wednesday Afternoon – Some Strong Storms Possible

Via NWS : Most of the Central VA Blue RIdge area is under a Wind Advisory Wednesday afternoon for gusty winds of 50+ MPH, especially in the higher elevations along the Blue Ridge Parkway & Skyline Drive. The potential for strong storms exists Wednesday afternoon & evening as well.

Central Virginia Blue Ridge Area
A vigorous storm system, much like we’d expect to see in the spring months, is headed toward the Central Virginia Blue Ridge. Overnight Tuesday into early Wednesday morning dozens and dozens of severe weather alerts including Tornado Warnings were issued to your west in TN, KY and AL. Wind Advisories have been hoisted for most of Central Virginia beginning Wednesday at noon until Thursday morning.

The Storm Prediction Center in OK has all of VA in the slight risk zone for severe weather, though the majority of the more severe storms are expected to in souther and SW VA into the Carolinas.

After the storms pass through late Wednesday night, winds will shift to the west bringing in much cooler air with temps on Thursday around 45° in the lower elevations and not making it out of the 30’s for highs on Friday. There is a chance for light snow Saturday night.

I’m keeping up with what’s happening to our west and will update as necessary as the system approaches our area.
