The stage is set for severe thunderstorms to target parts of the Ohio Valley as the weekend comes to an end.
A storm system clashing with a surge of warmer air will allow thunderstorms to rattle the Ohio Valley into Sunday evening.
Some of the thunderstorms threaten to turn severe with hail, damaging winds and downpours.
Cities at risk for the violent thunderstorms include Indianapolis; Louisville, Kentucky; Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio; and Charleston, West Virginia.
Those with outdoor plans should monitor AccuWeather MinuteCast® for any impending severe weather.
Even in the absence of severe thunderstorm warnings, shelter should be sought as soon as thunder is heard. The danger of being struck by lightning will then be present.
The departure of the severe thunderstorms and storm system will not yield a dry start to the new week.
A new system will deliver a couple of additional showers and thunderstorms on Monday.
With cooler air in place, severe weather is not a concern in most communities. Heavy rain will renew the threat for additional flash flooding in eastern Kentucky, West Virginia and southwestern Virginia.
