A complex of thunderstorms sitting on the other side of the Ohio is sweeping east this morning. Due to the lower pressure with this system, small but strong thunderstorm cells are popping up to our west. As the morning continues, these pop-ups will continue to push towards us. Heavy rain, lightning, and strong wind gusts are expected, hail is possible at times. Otherwise, it’s cloudy and mild.
Most, if not all, activity in our forecast area this morning is expected to remain sub-severe. Despite this, if one of these cells lines up over your location, you’ll be getting a deluge of rain along with dangerous storm conditions. If you’re driving, visibility will be reduced dramatically. Use caution and seek shelter if you’re outside and hear thunder. This round of thunderstorms will clear by the late morning and will mostly affect the I-64 corridor and northern counties. A second round of thunderstorms will flare up this evening and will be strong as well. There will be a marginal severe threat with these storms concerning wind gusts and hail. This cluster will clear us overnight into Monday.
