Episode Narrative A weakening cold front pushed into a very moist and unstable air mass with dewpoints in the upper 60s and wet-bulb zero heights around 11,000 feet. The presence of marginally colder and drier air aloft produced large hail and damaging winds as the front moved through northern Alabama. Some training of thunderstorms produced isolated flash flooding.
Event Narrative Repeated rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms produced heavy rainfall. This caused flash flooding in the following locations: the outer lanes of Jackson Highway, Wilson Dam Road between 6th Street and Avalon Road, and at the Taco Bell on Woodward Avenue.
