Strong Storms Possible Southwest VA

Western Virginia will be favored today for rain and thunderstorms, especially south of I-64 and west of I-85. An upper-level disturbance is headed toward the region this afternoon and may aid in the intensification of storms. Widespread cloud-cover may inhibit destabilization of the atmosphere, but it should still be humid and warm enough for storms.

Some of the storms that develop could become severe with damaging straight-line winds and potentially some hail around quarter size. There may be a watch issued for part of our area, so we'll let you know if that's the case. Stay with CBS6, we'll keep you ahead of the storm!
