Heightened Flash Flood Risk This Morning Thanks to Sluggish Low Pressure

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): Slow-moving low pressure and a very moist atmosphere will trigger spots of standing water, poor drainage flooding and elevated streams this morning.

Doppler radar indicates pockets of 1.5-2.0 inches of rain will fall in an hour in the heavier showers and thunderstorms, mainly west of our region in the Charleston area. Flooding is underway in parts of Kanawha, Logan and Mingo counties.

Highlighted areas are most at risk for flash flooding this morning.

The Greenbrier Valley and along and south of I-64 are most at risk for flash flooding this morning until 9-11 a.m. This includes poor drainage areas and near smaller streams and creeks. Turn around if you approach a flooded road because the water is usually deeper than what it appears.

Remainder of the Day: The low pressure will finally push east of the region between 9-11 a.m. and dry weather is expected in most spots. One or two storms are possible in Pocahontas and western Greenbrier County later today between 3-6 p.m.
