Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system over Minnesota pushed a front across our area. Very strong winds aloft set the stage for damaging wind gusts and tornadoes. Enough instability was present ahead of this front to enhance the severe threat. An area of severe thunderstorms and embedded supercells moved into the Piedmont of Virginia late in the evening of the 26th into early on the 27th. These storms produced areas of wind damage and two tornadoes.
Event Narrative A EF0 tornado touched down on Irisburg Road and was intermittently on the ground for over 5 miles as it traveled northeast, before lifting on Peach Orchard Road. Several trees were damaged or snapped and 5 outbuildings were also damaged. Three homes also received minor damage. Damage amounts are estimated.
