Episode Narrative A strong upper trough for late July pushed a cold front through the region during the evening hours of the 23rd. Although instability was rather marginal...cooling aloft allowed for a broken line of severe convection to propagate across the Blue Ridge and into the Piedmont during the evening.
Event Narrative A tree was blown down at the intersection of Highways 158 and 119. Damage values are estimated.
