Episode Narrative A strong closed upper level low pressure moved across the Ohio valley, producing a variety of extreme weather across northwest North Carolina. In advance of the system, strong southeast winds produced wind damage across the higher elevations. These southeast winds also provided strong upslope lifting along the Blue Ridge mountains,|which produced heavy rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches. This resulted in areas of flash flooding. Enough heating occurred out ahead of the cold front on the 16th to produce severe thunderstorms. These storms produced widespread wind damage and one tornado.
Event Narrative At least two trees were blown down as a line of severe thunderstorms moved through.
