Strong storms are moving across the entire viewing area Thursday afternoon, bringing a big change in temperature.

Chief StormTracker meteorologist Spencer Adkins says the storms are producing wind gusts of up to 30 mph.

"These storms will definitely impact afternoon drivers and we should see some city street flooding briefly," said Adkins.

The storms are expected to move past the Charleston-Huntington area by the traditional 5 p.m. commute time into southern West Virginia and southeast Kentucky.

Temperatures should only range near 70 degrees for a high on Friday with lows in the 40s Friday night.
