Hmmmmmm…things are looking up for Saturday afternoon and evening. The latest NWS Sterling forecast for our area calls for thunderstorms, and this seems to be borne out by the GFS mixed layer CAPE forecast above. Additionally, the SPC Day 4-8 severe weather forecast shows an area of potential severity in southern Virginia which could lead to a slight risk forecast when the Day 3 forecast comes out tomorrow. I may be able to exercise my chase paraphernalia this weekend!
