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 and foothills of North Carolina late in the evening of the 26th into early on the 27th. These storms produced areas of wind damage, one downburst, and one tornado. The front stalled over the area during the day of the 27th. Another piece of upper level energy moving along the front sparked more thunderstorms and embedded supercells late in the day on the 27th. These storms produced more wind damage, one more downburst, and one additional tornado.
Event Narrative A thunderstorm microburst with estimated winds up to 80 MPH occurred along Oakview Loop and Fitch Road. The path was about 2 miles long with a width up to 200 yards. Numerous sheds, outbuildings, and barns were damaged by the winds. Numerous large trees and limbs were also downed, with some trees completely uprooted. Damage amounts are estimated.
