Episode Narrative An upper level cold low had been slowly progressing into the region since July 7. On July 9, the center of the low was shifting east of the area and the feature's associated cold front was moving across the area. A combination good instability due to the low, plenty of moisture near the surface, relatively dry air aloft, and the passage of the cold front, resulted in storms that produced severe weather, especially in the form of damaging winds.
Event Narrative Trees were blown down on Old Highway 29. Damage values are estimated.
