Severe thunderstorms could rake Greater Williamsburg this afternoon into the evening, the National Weather Service in Wakefield says.

The weather service’s Storm Prediction Center has put the area under an enhanced risk of severe weather, which means widespread storms are possible across the region.

Some of the storms could produce large hail and damaging winds of 60 mph or more, the weather service said. Localized flash flood also is possible.

Rainfall totals are expected to be about half an inch, with some areas seeing more because of storms.

Tuesday is expected to be partly sunny and windy with a high near 90, the weather service  said.

Rain and thunderstorms are possible this week through the weekend, with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s, the weather service said.
