Episode Narrative An ever persistent upper trough and associated frontal system lingered across the eastern United States. The broad upper trough was centered near Ohio, while the frontal system was stalled across eastern Virginia into north central North Carolina. With a warm, humid air mass across the region, especially across eastern Virginia and northern North Carolina, showers and thunderstorms developed during afternoon heating once again. One of these in Pittsylvania county became severe and produced quarter to near half-dollar-sized hail.
Event Narrative The public observed quarter to 1.25 inch diameter hail along Axton Road near Keen Drive west of Cascade, or approximately five miles north-northeast of Eden, North Carolina.
