The current bowling ball brought thunderstorms last night then highs in the mid to upper 50's, 20 degrees colder than yesterday. Now the system is about to hit us from its backside with strong to severe thunderstorms along its warm front! Take note of the systems comma shape.

Current Radar shows the severe thunderstorms in SW NC and areas of moderate to heavy rain/thunder moving through Central NC and Southern VA. Fortunately Richmond appears to be too deep in the cool pool to get more than rain. The whole bowling ball is moving SE.

moving SE. I am concerned about the "tail" on the south and
rear quadrants. Those areas are experiencing severe weather.
