Episode Narrative A weak upper level storm system moved across the area during the afternoon, and combined with daytime heating, ignited thunderstorms across northwest North Carolina and up into Virginia, in the vicinity of the Blue Ridge. Enough instability existed for some of these storms to become severe. Enough moisture was present, and storm motion was slow enough, to also bring very heavy rain from these storms.
Event Narrative Thunderstorm winds blew down many trees on Bluewater Drive near Scruggs. A couple of the trees fell on houses and power lines also toppled at one residence.
