"Cold front" showdown


Severe storms continue to track just south and north of us. We started off the day with scattered thunderstorms, and we've maintained the overcast skies throughout the day until making way for sunny skies this evening. A "Flash Flood Watch" for many of our counties in southern West Virginia was lifted this afternoon.

Meanwhile, heavy downpours and severe thunderstorms even tornado warnings issued in parts of Kentucky. The same disturbance was likely to bring us a similar setup for severe weather today, but we've been fortunate enough to dodge those severe storms as they track to the southeast. There are more strong storms north of West Virginia, and they are creating a similar outbreak from Ohio into Pennsylvania.

The Storm Prediction Center downgraded our "Moderate" risk for severe storm development to a "Slight" risk today. Although, we haven't seen much of any activity this Sunday, there's still a chance of isolated storms later this evening into the overnight and again Monday afternoon.

The cold front will represent its name well and bring us much cooler temperatures. Highs Monday and Tuesday near 69 and low-to-mid 70s for the rest of the work week!
