GLENWOOD, WV - A slow-moving frontal boundary helped fire thunderstorms mainly in the tri-state region near Huntington and into southeast Ohio. Severe weather was reported in some areas in the form of hail and damage from strong winds. Minor flooding was experienced under the slower-moving storms. A second area of severe storms developed along the high terrain near Lewisburg and White Sulpher Springs and into western Virginia.
The stalling frontal boundary will settle into southern West Virginia on Saturday morning, and act as the focus for additional storms through the weekend.
