Storms Break Heat
A quick paced line of gusty thunderstorms formed meagerly in Southern Ohio this afternoon just after noon. Those cells rained hard upon downtown Huntington for a minute (while I was at the post office) then moved east and south and turned into gully washing downpours.
The hardest hit area has been Kanawha County where street flooding and power strikes have been common. From the plaza in Dunbar to the Mound in South Charleston to the Capital Market section of Charleston city, a healthy drink of rain water has broken the 6 day hot spell.
These storms will be crossing the Coalfields of Eastern Kentucky and Southern WV before 5 PM. Behind this storm line a breath of fresh air will invade and many folks will be treated to a late day rainbow.
By the way that fresh air will drop lows into the mid 60s area-wide by dawn when dense fog will invade.
As for Friday, a TC top 10 summer day is in the cards!
Special thanks go out to Randy Cain for the lightning shot over Charleston!
