Pinpoint Weather: Strong storms and isolated tornadoes are possible overnight

Weather Blog

Strong storms with the potential for generating isolated tornadoes will continue into the overnight hours.

Futurecast has the center of the remnant low of what once was Fred moving west of our viewing area. The track of Fred brings the center over eastern Kentucky and central West Virginia. That location is just right for us to see some spin up tornadoes in the eastern flank of the former Tropical Storm.

The forecast by the National Hurricane Center, last issued this morning, has the remnant low moving NNE into Pennsylvania by Wednesday evening. The impact to the Commonwealth will be felt into Wednesday morning.

Another aspect of Fred will be the likelihood of flash flooding. Over the past several days our region has had the skies open up with several inches of rain. That will aid in the flooding as any rain that falls will run off quickly and therefore a Flash Flood Watch is in place until Noon Wednesday.

The Storm Predication Center has a good part of the NRV and Piedmont under the 5% risk of a tornado. May not sound like much, but it is not zero.
