Episode Narrative A healthy weather system pushed through the region on the 29th and brought a round of isolated severe thunderstorms to the far southern portion of the area as a line of storms pushed quickly east. Behind the line of storms, a strong cold front moved through followed by a strong area of high pressure. Winds behind the front were quite strong and brought sustained winds around 25 or 30 mph with frequent gusts between 40 and 45 mph. These strong winds caused sporadic damage across the service area before they subsided.
Event Narrative A few trees and power lines were blown down across the county by strong gradient winds behind a strong cold front.
