FLASH FLOOD WATCH:
A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for Mercer, Summers, Monroe, and Greenbrier Counties in WV and Tazewell County in VA starting at 12PM Friday until 12AM on Saturday
Today we continue to keep rain and thunderstorms in the forecast. For this afternoon severe storms are not expected but some gustier winds and a stronger storm are still possible. Overall we will have sunshine in between storms with temperatures topping out near 80 degrees again.
To kick off the weekend on Saturday we still have to watch for some early morning showers and storms across the area. These much like Friday won’t be severe, but will help us cool off a bit in the morning hours. We could still see a shower or two in the afternoon hours but most will stay dry. Temperatures will make it up into the low 80’s with overnight lows in the upper 50’s.
Sunday is our first totally dry day in a few days. To wrap up the weekend we keep things sunny, and hot. Highs are expected to top out in the upper 70’s a few 80’s could be mixed in.
Next week we keep a close eye on a few moving pieces including Cristobal and it’s remnants. For the most part we start the week out with high pressure in control over the area with the heat cranked up. By mid-week we have to watch how Cristobal interacts with a system by the Great Lakes, that could bring us a healthy dose of rain and thunderstorms along with some tropical moisture. Keep checking back for more details as we get closer.
We are still watching Tropical Depression Cristobal. Those with interests along the Gulf Coast should continue to monitor this storm closely as it is expected to restrengthen to a Tropical Storm and the approach the Gulf Coast by this weekend. A lot of uncertainty still remains in the exact track at this time. Make sure you stay with us for all the latest updates!
Remember that severe weather season is now in full swing. Be sure you have two ways to receive alerts and warnings! NOAA Weather Radio is something we always recommend, and it makes a great gift too.
