Episode Narrative Upper shortwave was moving east-northeast from the Gulf of Mexico during the late afternoon and into the evening, with a moist and unstable air mass at the surface. At the same time, a 130 knot upper jet lifted northward from the Gulf of Mexico. This combination of moisture, instability, and strong wind fields aloft allowed for the development of organized severe storms.
Event Narrative There were several trees down in Metter as reported by WTOC.
