Episode Narrative A broad ridge over the central U.S. set the stage for scattered to numerous severe storms that developed in the early morning and persisted much of the day and into the night. The storms were triggered by the remains of a mesoscale convective system (MCS) that dropped southeast across the southern Appalachians in the morning hours while strong surface heating created a very unstable air mass as the day progressed. Strong wind shear, steep lapse rates and instability that was approaching 3000 J/kg by mid-morning contributed to the intensity of the storms. The Mountain Empire, New River Valley and Southside Virginia saw most of the activity which featured mainly severe, damaging high winds but also some hail.
Event Narrative Some metal shingles were also torn off a barn along with tree and power line damage.
