Episode Narrative A strong upper level wave and cold front moved across the region on the night of the 4th into early on the 5th of April. A line of heavy showers and thunderstorms accompanied this front. This line intensified as it approached the blue ridge and entered into an area of higher instability. This intensification allowed for the very strong winds aloft to mix down to the surface as the line began to form into a bow echo, resulting in areas of wind damage, mainly along and east of the Blue Ridge.
Event Narrative Numerous trees were blown down across the area. Several of them were on Badgett Sisters Parkway, one on Oak View Loop Road and another one on Boy Scout Camp Road. A roof was also blown off a house on Marshall Graves Road. The RAWS site at Caswell Gamelands measured a wind gust to 72 MPH.
