Scattered thunderstorms will be possible across the mountains this morning through early this afternoon. The best coverage will be along the northern Blue Ridge mountains midday. Cloud-to-ground lightning strikes and locally heavy rainfall will be the main threats with any thunderstorms.

Additional showers and thunderstorms will develop along a passing cold front on Monday. The additional rainfall could worsen any lingering flood problems, or create new flooding, through Monday evening.



TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Tue Sep 13 2022

For the North Atlantic…Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Central Tropical Atlantic:
A tropical wave located roughly midway between the west coast of Africa and the Windward Islands continues to produce a concentrated area of showers and thunderstorms. Additional development of this system is possible over the next several days while it moves generally westward to west-northwestward over the central tropical Atlantic and approaches the Windward Islands by the end of the week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.

2. Eastern Tropical Atlantic:
A tropical wave located about a hundred miles southeast of the easternmost Cabo Verde Islands is producing an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear only marginally favorable, and any development of this system should be slow to occur while it moves westward or west-northwestward across the eastern tropical Atlantic through the end of the week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
