- After a few days of lovely weather, parts the Delaware Valley will be dealing with the potential of severe thunderstorms.

This pattern is not unheard of, the last time that we had a hot May was in 2012, and in 2006 most recently before that.

The highest risk of severe weather will be east of St. Louis after about 3 p.m., and storms will generally slide south into Wednesday night.

Due to a severe weather warning, Amherst County Public Schools are holding buses at all schools.

The national weather service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for the Chattanooga area this afternoon.

Severe weather can include strong winds, damaging hail, heavy rain and even an isolated tornado, forecasters said.

Skies will clear overnight and will be mostly sunny Friday, with a high near 81 degrees. Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 miles per hour are likely.

Each day will feature a chance of showers and thunderstorms primarily in the afternoon and evening.

A warming trend continues today thanks to high pressure as our dominant weather feature today.

Saturday also will be partly cloudy, with temperatures climbing into the 90s.
