May 24, 2011 Evening Brief Update

7 PM: Storms have failed to appear in the area up to this point, and a few isolated thunderstorms at most are expected tonight. The GFS and GGEM yesterday showed an area of strong thunderstorms moving towards the area, but this solution did not have much support from the other models, and ended up not verifying. Most of the thunderstorms today stayed in Virginia and West Virginia.

Stay tuned for tonight’s update which will be posted later tonight, discussing the warmth late this week, storm potential for Saturday, and a potential heat wave next week that may bring high temperatures in parts of the area into the 90s for the first time this year.
