A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Raleigh, McDowell, Wyoming, Buchanan, Fayette, Greenbrier, Mercer, Summes, Monroe, and Pocahontas counties until 3:00 AM Monday.
The best risk for showers/storms looks to arrive overnight Sunday night and into early Monday morning, especially between the hours of 11PM AND 3AM tomorrow, as an area of low pressure rides along a stalled frontal boundary. Though the risk for severe weather is low, the SPC still has our area under at least a MARGINAL or (1/5) on the severe weather scale for isolated strong to severe storms overnight tonight that could produce damaging winds, large hail, and locally heavy rainfall. Rotating storms are not completely out of the question, but tornadoes are overall unlikely for our area.
The front will continue to linger across the area into Monday, so we could see more scattered showers/storms with embedded strong/severe cells during the day tomorrow as well. Stay tuned!
