Once the morning round of storms exits, the afternoon round looks to be more spotty in nature but some of these storms could also be severe, especially over the higher terrain in the southern and eastern parts of West Virginia.

Storm Prediction Center storm risk areas for Sunday

Possible damaging winds are the top risk for the two rounds of storms on Sunday. Hail chances do exist especially in the storms north of I-64 in the early hours of Sunday.

Lightning should also be fairly frequent with the storms Sunday.

Projected areas where lightning is possible Sunday morning

The tornado chance is very low but we will monitor all storm risks as the event unfolds. Heavy rain is quite likely so we need to monitor streams and creeks closely in localized areas.

Projected rainfall could reach 2 inches in the region Sunday
