UPDATE: More rounds of showers/storms this afternoon & evening could lead to localized flooding issues

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

UPDATE (1:45 PM) - We saw a round of showers and storms come through portions of our viewing area early this afternoon. Most of the rain was concentrated west of I-77 and south of I-64. Some areas have seen 1-3 inches of rainfall so far.

Areas north of I-64 could see showers and storms as well, but coverage will be a lot lower.

With more rounds of showers and storms expected this afternoon and evening, this could lead to localized flooding issues. Especially with slow moving storms and storms that train over the same region could lead to flooding issues. Showers and storms should taper off after sunset.

A FLOOD ADVISORY has been issued for Tazewell County until 3:15 PM.

PREVIOUS DISCUSSION (6:00 AM) ----------------------------------------------------------------

BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (WVVA) - We are starting Tuesday off with another morning of patchy fog and stray showers. As you step out the door this morning, it will feel warm and sticky. Temperatures and dew points are in the 60s and low 70s, which is creating this saturated atmosphere.

We will see more clouds than sun throughout your Tuesday, so high temperatures will be a tad cooler than Monday. Expect highs to be around the 70s and low 80s. Nevertheless, still another warm and muggy day.

A stalled frontal boundary will reside to our south throughout the day, which will help keep this moist airmass around. An upper-level disturbance to our west will push into the viewing area today. This disturbance will aid in developing pop up showers and thunderstorms throughout the day.

Showers and storms can develop anywhere across the viewing area this today, but most activity will be west of I-77 and south of the I-64 corridor. Much like Monday, severe weather will not be the concern into the afternoon, but the flooding threat will hang around.

Storms this afternoon will be slow movers and could train over the same spots over and over again. This could lead to isolated flooding concerns into the afternoon and evening, especially with heavier downpours.

After sunset, showers and storms should begin to taper off, but a stray shower overnight is possible. Temperatures will maintain in the 60s, with mostly cloudy skies.

We stay warm and muggy into Wednesday, with scattered showers and storms possible into the afternoon. Activity will most likely again be concentrated west of I-77 and south of the I-64 corridor. Isolated flooding issues will remain a concern into Wednesday, but severe weather should once again stay mainly to our south. A stray shower is possible Wednesday night, but we will be mainly dry, with temperatures dropping into the 60s.

By Thursday and Friday, we will begin to see a more drier pattern, with a few showers possible into Thursday and mainly dry for Friday. We do turn up the heat however. Most spots should eclipse the 80 degree mark for both Thursday and Friday, with the sun making a strong return.

We will hold on to the high humidity through late week and into Independence Day, so drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. Especially for those who are outdoors. Independence Day is looking mainly dry so far... Just hot and humid! Stay tuned!
