February 28, 2011 - Severe Threat To End February

We're ending February with a bang - or well, thunder. Severe storms are a major possibility late this morning and early afternoon. Read on in today's blog.

Happy Monday everyone! We have a very busy day on top here in the First Alert Storm Center. Within the next hour or so, the Storm Prediction Center will likely place us under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch or a Tornado Watch.

These storms are powerful - producing tornadoes, damaging winds and large hail. Several tornado warnings have already gone out for WV counties along the Ohio River.

We're anticipating this front to be at the higher elevations around 10:30am and possibly to the Valley at 11am. Remember the mountains will interfere with the storm structure so we have to pay close attention to how they evolve once they're in the Valley.

The front itself is back in central Ohio at this point so we do have the possibility of severe storms through the evening rush hour.

While damaging winds are the main threat, we can't rule out isolated tornadoes and damaging hail. I know it's February, but the risk is still there!

I urge you to keep an eye on the sky and to WHSV on-air and online. We will keep you up to date with all weather alerts.
