From Anthony MurphyIf you really want to go, you should go. I am not familiar with the park, but I bet there are some rides that can run in rain (indoor attractions). Also, it should be less crowded!

From Brandon SI always go to Cedar Point when it storms, but I do have a season pass so... See, up in northern Ohio, the rain just seems to break up and it rarely holds up. I don't know how it is done there.

From Joe Atchison IIIThat's one of our favorite times, since the weather usually scares off big crowds.

From Adam NodjomianI usually go during a storm, especially if it's part of a trip I'm already on. If there are T-Storms they only last about 30 min., then all the rides open back up.

Like everyone else has said, lines and crowds are not nearly as bad during stromy times. I hope the weather holds up for you, Kings Dominion has some great rides.
Definetly do Volcano if you haven't already. The line is usually long, but it's worth. Also, if you have time, wait for the 1st row, it's so worth it!
