Episode Narrative Thunderstorms developed across north central Wyoming in response to an upper level disturbance sliding east-southeast around a ridge of high pressure.
Event Narrative A thunderstorm moving east along Dry Creek toward Greybull produced one to two inches of rain in Greybull in less than one hour. The town emergency manager reported a few rain gages in town measured slightly more than two inches of rain in 50 minutes. Pea sized hail of one inch in depth also occurred with the heavy rain. The Greybull storm drainage system was unable to keep up with the deluge of water and hail, flooding many prone areas around town. The heavy rain flooded portions of the Greybull River Road and several basements in town sustained damage.
