Severe Weather To Spook Halloween Night

The National Weather Service is warning about the possibilities of severe, Halloween-night storms in Central Virginia.  Charles Fishburne reports.


Charles Fishburne:  Although they have not posted any official advisories yet, forecasters say a line of strong to severe showers and thunderstorms will blow in with a cold front as it crosses the region tonight between eight and ten.

Wayne Albright:  The threat is gusty winds and locally heavy rains

Wayne Albright, Meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Wakefield.

Albright:  Winds could be 50-60 miles an hour, rain could be very brief

Fishburne:  He says it is a classic clash of the seasons, that also carries with it the threat of a tornado.

Albright: Temperatures up in the 70’s maybe low 80’s in Southeast Virginia.  And then that storm cold front will arrive this evening and cross the area quickly and it will be noticeably cooler and drier tomorrow.

Fishburne:  He says it could be near freezing west of Richmond by tomorrow night.
