Episode Narrative This was a synoptic scale event. A strong north to south temperature gradient existed along the Interstate 70 corridor in Ohio. Low pressure moved out of Illinois in the morning, reaching western Pennsylvania by evening.

Hail was initially the main impact, but stronger wind gusts developed as the thunderstorms matured and consolidated. Out ahead, a separate area of showers and thunderstorms bushed southern West Virginia during the late afternoon.
