Scattered Showers and Storms Sunday

Morning rain and then a chance for a few thunderstorms on this Sunday. A few strong storms are possible Sunday with the main storm dangers being downpours and gusty winds. Northern parts of our region (across SW VA) are in what's called the marginal risk as outlined by the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center. That's a Level 1 out of 5 risk. I don't expect a lot of strong storms, but a few could occur. 

The good news- temperatures will remain well above average through Tuesday. On Sunday, highs will be determined by the amount of morning cloud cover and rainfall. Less rain and clouds, warmer temperatures. Thanks to a southeast downsloping wind as well, a few spots like Elizabethton, Johnson City and adjacent foothills may also warm a few degrees warmer than other spots. The fun of living in an interesting micro-climate controlled weather zone!

How about the work week? Well, there's a chance of showers Monday with a better chance of rain and possible storms arriving Tuesday.Rain chances decrease Wednesday and increase late Thursday. Warm weather is expected to continue through next week! A Spring-Like pattern is here!
