The latest: Gusty thunderstorms, big cooldown ahead for Tri-State


CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – A strong cold front is going to give us a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms overnight, some of which could be on the strong side briefly.

There is a good bit of wind energy with the front, with a much cooler airmass waiting for us as we head into Saturday. Our main threat is the risk for a few damaging wind gusts, along with brief torrential rainfall.

The time period of biggest impact will be between midnight and before dawn Saturday. Once we get to dawn, we’ll see just light drizzle but MUCH cooler temperatures, as highs will only be around 60 degrees – over 20 degrees cooler than what we saw Friday.

And highs in the 80s are likely a thing of the past – there are no signs of significant warmth over the next two weeks in our region!
