Episode Narrative A surface boundary remained over West Virginia while a south-southeast flow aloft pumped in plenty of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. The moisture lead to unstable conditions and the surface boundary combined with the instability to trigger showers and thunderstorms. Some thunderstorms were severe, causing damaging winds and large hail.
Event Narrative A wind gust of 60 knots was measured near Franklin.
