Weather Summary for SW VA...SE WV...and NW NC
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
421 PM EDT Thu Sep 29 2016

Skies were cloudy to start the day, with radar indicating a few
showers across the mid-Atlantic, as a deep upper level low
pressure system lingered over the central Ohio River Valley. By
early afternoon, scattered showers and thunderstorms developed,
mainly along and west of the Blue Ridge, a few of which became
severe, producing hail up to the size of golf balls. In addition,
some of the storms produced locally heavy rain, with amounts in a
few spots accumulating from one to two inches over a few minutes
time. Afternoon temperatures varied from the mid and upper 60s
across the mountains, to the 70s along and east of the Blue Ridge.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will persist across the area
through this evening into the overnight hours. A few of these
storms may become strong to severe, and capable of producing large
hail. Locally heavy rain will also be possible with some of these
storms. Temperatures tonight will fall into the 50s across the
mountains, and hold in the 60s east of the Blue Ridge. Additional
showers and thunderstorms can be expected for Friday, mainly
during the morning and afternoon, before clearing takes place
during the evening. Friday afternoon temperatures will rise into
the 70s for much of the region.
