Southside Hampton Roads remains under a slight risk for severe weather Wednesday night through Thursday morning. Damaging wind and hail are the main threats, but isolated tornadoes are also possible.

Keep in mind, a tornado watch means conditions are favorable for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms within and close by the watch area. If you live in this area, be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions. A tornado warning means a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. If you are in the warning area, you should seek shelter and take cover. Move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building and avoid windows. If you are in a mobile home, a vehicle, or are outside, move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris.

A coastal flood advisory has been issued for the City of Norfolk as well. Minor tidal flooding could occur in low-lying areas two hours before and after high tide, which peaks at 8:54 p.m.
