Episode Narrative Rich tropical moisture streamed northward from the Gulf of Mexico in advance of a slow-moving cold front across the Ohio Valley. Isolated showers and thunderstorms developed in areas of terrain-enhanced lift across the Potomac Highlands. A couple of reports of flooding and flash flooding were received after the heavy rainfall amounts from this activity. The highest rainfall total in the region was observed in Grant County, where 2.05 inches was recorded.
