Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system tracking northeast from the southern Ozarks into the Ohio Valley brought a cold front into the central Tennessee Valley during the late afternoon and evening hours of the 19th. Supercells erupted across northern Mississippi, moving into far northwest Alabama shortly before 5 pm CDT. Initially, these storms were large hail producers, with up to baseball sized hail reported in the town of Red Bay in Franklin County. As the early evening progressed, this supercell tracked into Lawrence and Morgan Counties producing wind damage and at least six tornadoes as it moved east. A male individual was killed in the town of Priceville in Morgan County when a tree was knocked down onto his trailer home. The thunderstorms evolved into a quasi-linear convective system (QLCS) as they moved into Marshall and DeKalb Counties. Another tornado developed rapidly in the community of Asbury in Marshall County, killing one and critically injurying another when their mobile home was destroyed. The QLCS progressed into DeKalb County producing additional tornado damage.
Event Narrative Nickel size hail was reported near downtown Albertville.
