Episode Narrative Low pressure passed through the Great Lakes on the 10th. A strong cold front associated with this system slowly moved through eastern West Virginia during the afternoon and evening hours. A southeast wind between this system and high pressure over the Atlantic Ocean pumped in copious amounts of moisture across the region. The deep moisture combined with strong lift from the front and limited instability to trigger showers and thunderstorms. Some thunderstorms produced locally heavy amounts of rain in a short period of time which led to flash flooding.
Event Narrative Flash flooding was reported on Caldwell Hollow Road.
