Autumn Thunder: Charleston, WV - September 28, 2003 - 2:00PM
CHASE VIDEO: RealVideo, 824KB - A flash of lightning and rumble of thunder from a late September storm in Charleston
Several tiny post-frontal thunderstorms popped up over parts of West Virginia on Sunday afternoon. The lightning and thunder seemed out of place in the cool autumn air, in the 50s, that had infiltrated the area after Saturday's passage of the strong cold front. These low-topped thunderstorms were generally weak, but small hail was reported in some locations.
This lightning flash and subsequent roll of thunder over the South Side Bridge and MacCorkle Avenue traffic was one of several that accompanied a small storm that passed over downtown Charleston at around 2:00PM Sunday afternoon.
