Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Charleston WV
315 AM EDT Sat Apr 14 2018

Showers and thunderstorms are expected Sunday. Some of the storms
could be strong to severe with damaging winds the most likely threat.
Heavy rainfall will also be possible, leading to potential flooding
along creeks and streams. As this water drains through the waterways,
some river flooding is also possible.

Athens OH 7-Day Forecast (updates 4-5 times daily):


Another warm day is expected again today, with many areas once again
expected to top out in the lower to mid 80s. Most areas will remain
dry, however, by the afternoon, there is the possibility for isolated
thunderstorms, mainly across southeast Ohio and northeast Kentucky.
Showers and thunderstorms, with heavy rain and possibly some gusty
winds are expected on Sunday as a cold front crosses the middle Ohio
River Valley and central Appalachians. The heavy rain could lead to
some flooding on local waterways. Showers will continue Monday, and
as cold air from the northwest surges in behind the front, snow will
begin to mix in. This will happen first across the higher terrain of
the West Virginia mountainous counties, but some falling flakes are
even possible across lower elevations Monday night. Some minor snow
accumulations are possible across the higher ridges of the northern WV
mountains. High pressure will cross Tuesday, followed by another cold
front late Wednesday into Thursday.
