Episode Narrative A deepening trough over the Ohio Valley propelled a cold front eastward triggering widespread strong to severe convection. A southeast flow around a surface high off the mid-Atlantic coast brought very high moisture into the area with dew points well into the 70s. A few severe thunderstorms produced large hail and heavy rains.
Event Narrative Heavy rains of 3 to 5 inches in several hours caused road closures in several locations. The Beford Cooperative obsever had 4.77 inches ending at 8 AM on the 14th. Roads close due to flooding included Highway 43 from Fancy Farm Road north Peaks of Otter; the intersection of Forbes Mill road and Jopling Road; intersection of Woods Road and Peaks Road and the intersection of Glass Hill Road and Otterville Road.
