5:25 PM | Powerful storms lining up to our west, much of the area will get hit between 6 and 9 PM

Discussion

Powerful thunderstorms are firing up across western Virginia and eastern West Virginia and these storms will progress eastward over the next few hours. The hours between 6 and 9 PM will see much of the metro region getting hit by these storms with very heavy rainfall, possible damaging wind gusts and even some hail. Quite warm, but less humid conditions are in store this weekend and then even cooler air is headed our way for much of next week, but for the next few hours, stay on guard for potential severe thunderstorms.
