April 8, 2010 - A Round of Severe Weather

We're expecting a round of severe weather on Thursday, with damaging winds being the primary threat.

As of 2pm on April 8, 2010, the cold front was just to the east of the Ohio River in West Virginia. Conditions are still unstable enough to support severe thunderstorms in the Valley, but the biggest threat for severe weather remains just east of the Blue Ridge and to our north in Pennsylvania. Our primary threat from this round of severe weather is damaging winds.

We managed to receive a good deal of daytime heating before the clouds moved in. The best chance for storms will be throughout the early evening hours. After we lose the daytime heat, the risk for severe weather will diminish, but we'll have a chance of showers and a more few rumbles of thunder through midnight.

Much cooler weather moves into the Valley tomorrow with high temperatures lower than most of our overnight lows this week. We'll be in the mid to upper 50's Friday with decreasing cloud cover and back into the 60's on Saturday.

Could it be that we're actually seeing Spring?! I hope so!
