Overnight Tornado Watch


Late this Sunday night, the atmosphere remains plenty unstable, witness the tropical humidity levels that cover the region. The fact that thunderstorms are flaring not folding this late is a sure sign that something strange is at work.

That mysterious element is a core of strong high altitude winds in the heavens above and working in tandem with the tropical air, those factors are conspiring to keep the risk of a severe thunderstorms until past midnight.

While the daytime storms remained split enough (just to the north and to the far southwest) to protect us from serious damage, some of the strongest storms of the day are on-going at 10pm and there remains a lingering risk of high winds storms into the wee hours of the morning.

The nearest tornado report on Sunday was at the North Bend State Park in Ritchie County WV where no doubt campers had a flashback to what happened last week when a killer tornado hit at a camping ground in Eastern Virginia.

So a few more hours of severe weather to navigate through overnight. Given the tornado watch for areas east and south of Huntington-Milton goes until 3AM, parents should send kids to bed and maybe one parent monitors the risk of storms until midnight or a bit after before retiring also.

Cooler less stormy weather thankfully arrives with a taste of cool, September-like weather to start the new work week.
