SUNDAY STORM WATCH UPDATED
It is interesting to watch Doppler Radar on this Sunday morning as showers and thunderstorms are blossoming seemingly from nowhere!
Take the Tug and upper Guyandotte Valleys of WV where early church goers awakened to a cloud shrouded and muggy air mass with a quiet radar. Then as if by magic thunderstorms with vivid lightning and heavy downpours exploded just before 8 AM as they moved from Mingo and Logan into Wyoming County.
This “rapid fire” storm pattern should be respected all day long for the following weather statement; namely, any place, any time for storms to pop.
Now As the day grows longer, that flaring process will be aided by strengthening winds in the clouds….and that process is what generates severe thunderstorms with high winds, large hail and tornadoes.
If we are lucky we will just have high water and spotty wind damage to cover today…in the worst case scenario, there will be a few potent tornadoes.
So it is a day to keep the kids playing close by and to keep a wary eye to the sky and weather radar.
