Episode Narrative The atmosphere was primed for strong to severe thunderstorm activity on August 5th. At the surface, a very warm and moist air mass was in place, as evidenced by the 70+ degree dewpoints that were being seen in the surface obs and the -4 to -6 lifted indices that were showing up in the SPC forecast maps. A 25-40 kt low level jet and a bullseye of moisture convergent were also present. The storms began firing along a cold front that was approaching from the northwest. The most widespread activity took place during the afternoon hours. All of the damage reports received that day were of downed trees.
Event Narrative Four trees were blown down from Flemingsburg towards Dalesburg on Hwy 57 and Cherry Grove Rd.
