System brings severe weather threat to Hampton Roads region

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — A strong weather system moving across Virginia is threatening to bring strong storms to the Hampton Roads region Wednesday evening.

Super Doppler 10 Meteorologist Ashley Baylor reports that a cold front will swing through from the west, and that will fire off some scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Some of these storms may be severe with strong, potentially damaging winds. However, no storm watches or warnings have been issued for the viewing area at this time.

Strong winds have already caused some impact in the region. A wind gust knocked over a door panel at the Greenbrier Mall in Chesapeake late Wednesday morning.

Hail is also a realistic scenario with this system, with small to large-sized hail possible. The chance for a tornado Wednesday evening is low, but Super Doppler 10 Meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler reports that it is not zero.
