Episode Narrative A developing strong storm system across the Southeastern United States caused several severe thunderstorms and locally heavy rainfall. Cold air surging in on the back side of the storm system caused the rain to turn over to snow, some of which became heavy.
Event Narrative The tornado touched down near the intersection of US-411, Meyers Road, and Church Road, near the Bethel Baptist Church. It then traveled northeastward and lifted just northeast of AL-174. At least 5 homes suffered extensive roof damage. At least 4 outbuildings were completely destroyed. Approximately 100 trees were either uprooted or snapped off. A glass enclosed sun-room was completely destroyed.
