Episode Narrative Scattered showers and thunderstorms developed across portions of central and southwest Virginia and southeast West Virginia due to weak shortwave troughs passing over the area ahead of an approaching cold front. Strong daytime heating across the piedmont area of Virginia, with highs reaching into the upper 80s and lower 90s, aided in destabilizing the atmosphere. Weak upper level winds kept these storms more pulse-variety in nature.
Event Narrative Mulberry Creek overflowed its banks, flooding Spruce Street. Also, street flooding was observed near the intersection of Jefferson and Zee Streets, with water entering 15 to 20 homes.
