FORECAST: Some thunderstorms for Independence Day weekend

Some unsettled weather is expected this weekend, but a washout is not expected.

NORFOLK, Va. — Expect another hot afternoon for your Saturday. With highs topping out in the upper 80s and lower 90s. However, there will be a chance for isolated showers and/or storms. While a Level 1 Risk for severe weather remains north of us, we won't rule out high wind gusts, or even small hail. 

Tomorrow highs will drop by a few degrees, but overall expect another warm afternoon with daytime temperatures reaching the mid to upper 80s. With scattered thunderstorms returning to the forecast, all of Hampton Roads and northeast North Carolina will be under a Level 1 Risk for severe weather. 

While some of the models are split on the chances for rain for this year's 4th of July, it may also feature isolated showers and/or storms. Don't change your plans, but stay tuned for forecast refinements as we get closer to the holiday.

Beyond Monday, it will be a typical July week in Hampton Roads, with highs near 90° and the chance at some pop-up afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

IN THE TROPICS

The National Hurricane Center is now monitoring 3 areas in the Atlantic basin.

Newly formed Tropical Storm Colin will slowly lift northeast across
the Carolinas today through Sunday. The system will likely bring gusty winds mainly to coastal areas, periods of heavy rain, and the threat for a few
isolated tornadoes. 

A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for Coastal Onslow,
East Carteret, Hatteras Island, Northern Outer Banks, Ocracoke
Island, and West Carteret.

An area of low pressure near the Lesser Antilles has a 10% chance of development over the next 5 days as it moves into the eastern Caribbean.

The third area, which had been "Potential Tropical Cyclone Two" has formed into Tropical Storm Bonnie and is threatening Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The storm will then enter the Pacific Ocean where it will likely strengthen into a hurricane off the coast of Mexico.
