BREAKING NEWS: Tornado watch issued for area
In effect through 4 a.m. Wednesday

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

By BULLETIN STAFF REPORTS -

A tornado watch has been issued in Henry and Patrick counties and Martinsville, according to the National Weather Service.

The watch, which means conditions are favorable for a tornado, will be in effect until 4 a.m. Wednesday.

Rains and high winds are expected throughout the night as a cold front moves across the eastern United States, said meteorologist Anita Silverman with the National Weather Service in Blacksburg.

Wind gusts could be 10 to 20 mph ahead of the front and 20 to 30 mph behind it, Silverman said.

A flash flood watch has been issued for parts of western Virginia but not as far east as Henry County, Silverman said. One to 2 inches of rain are possible overnight, the weather service stated.

Silverman added that there is a "small probability" of a tornado moving through the region because of the high winds, but the entire system is expected to be through the area by daybreak. Skies will clear by mid-day Wednesday, she said.

The weather service is calling for a high temperature of 50 Wednesday, but temperatures are expected to fall to 42 by 5 p.m. and 27 at night, the weather service stated.

Highs are expected to remain around 47 through Sunday, the NWS reported.
