Episode Narrative Well in advance of an approaching cold front, thunderstorms formed during the afternoon. The main cluster of storms reached into West Virginia after 1600E. Out ahead of the storms, temperatures were in the 90s. A steep low level lapse rate and strong unidirectional flow aloft helped produce some damaging wind gusts.

Local downpours also occurred. For example, a spotter measured around 1.25 inches of rain in 25 minutes in Williamstown of Wood County.
Event Narrative Trees fell along Route 50.
