A line of heavy thunderstorms moved across the area Wednesday afternoon resulting in high winds, heavy rains and some vivid lightning.

Our BRLM Weathernet stations had each picked up over 1/2″ of rain by 6:30 PM Wednesday evening with heavier amounts in other locations. Our BRL-Trager Brother’s station had .53″ of rain by 6:30 PM Wednesday. Up at 3500′ our BRL-Nature Foundation at Wintergreen station has .90″.

Some power outages were also reported as shown below in our tweet just after 6:30PM Wednesday evening.
