Historic Weather


West Virginia has had several significant weather events. This includes tornadoes, severe hail, supercells, derechos/squall lines, heavy snow, and flooding. Below is a list of specific significant weather events that have taken place in West Virginia. I plan on researching one to two significant events per season to diagnose and post here on the website, so check back here often!


Tennis ball-sized hail fell in the Mink Shoals area of Kanawha County as a result of the storm. Capital High School saw baseball-sized hail (photo courtesy of the National Weather Service).
