CHARLESTON, WV - The first week of July brought an active weather pattern from most of the Midwest to parts of the central and northern Appalachians. On Sunday evening, July 6, a dying cluster of thunderstorms moved into West Virginia and through the Charleston-Huntington area. Several counties saw storms approaching severe limits, and most of the Kanawha Valley received a nice post-July 4th natural fireworks display. Storm chances in the Charleston metro area were expected to continue for the rest of the week.
