Strong to severe thunderstorms expected this weekend

By Jason Christian, Blue Weather & RealWV


Severe thunderstorms, with strong winds and torrential rainfall, will be in the forecast for the Ohio and Tennessee valleys stretching into the central Appalachians. Warmth and high humidity will be the fuel for these storms as a warm front lifts to the northeast into the eastern Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic.


The main concerns throughout the Mid Atlantic will be strong to severe thunderstorms. Concerns will be damaging winds and large hail, though a few tornadoes also cannot be ruled out. There will also be the potential for torrential rain, leading to localized areas of flooding.


Saturday’s cold front will continue to advance farther south and east very slowly into the Eastern U.S. Sunday. Rain showers and thunderstorms will soak most areas along and east of the Mississippi River. Heavy rain and dangerous thunderstorms could develop again. Be on the lookout for gusty winds, large hail and possibly a thunderstorm or two across the Ohio and Tennessee valleys into the East Coast.https://www.facebook.com/reel/1530900383984696?fs=e&s=TIeQ9V&mibextid=9imq16
