Episode Narrative A powerful low pressure system tracked from Arkansas into the Ohio Valley, lifting a warm front north during the afternoon, and pushing a cold front during the evening hours. Two quasi-linear convective systems (QLCS) tracked east through the Tennessee Valley, resulting in two waves of severe thunderstorms that produced four tornadoes of EF0 and EF1 intensity, wind damage, and several short duration flash floods, mainly in urban areas of Huntsville and Decatur. Damaging non-thunderstorm winds occurred behind the cold frontal passage, enhanced by a possible gravity wave.
Event Narrative Large trees were blown down along Alabama Highway 36 near Somerville. Time was estimated by radar.
