NWS: Morning storms caused little local damage in Hampton Roads

Daily Press

Hampton Roads received little damage from morning storms that injured several and killed two people at an Eastern Shore campground Thursday, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Wakefield said.

A second round of storms is anticipated later in the afternoon, but meteorologist Dan Proch said they're not yet sure if severe weather is expected.

Proch said heavy rainfall, strong wind and hail are possible.

The weather service received just one report of a downed tree from the earlier storm in Isle of Wight County. A weather service spotter reported quarter-sized hail in Franklin, Proch said.

The storms are ahead of a cold front moving into the area, according to the weather service.

Expect a high temperature of about 85 degrees and a low of 68.

Look forward to lots of sunshine Friday and over the weekend, with the mercury rising back into the 90s by Sunday.
