Storm Team 4 Meteorologist Somara Theodore says the storms have also begun south and west of Luray, Virginia, and the National Weather Service has also issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the Staunton region.
Theodore says storms should clear just before sunset — and shouldn’t have a major impact on the Nationals game tonight.
