Episode Narrative Thunderstorms erupted during the late night and early morning hours across north Alabama in advance of a strong storm system moving from the southern Plains into the middle Mississippi Valley. The storms evolved into a small quasi-linear convective system (QLCS) as they moved into northeast Alabama. A meso-cyclone developed along this line producing a short-lived EF0 tornado in eastern Marshall County.
Event Narrative A tree was blown down by thunderstorm winds at the intersection of 4th Street NE and 7th Avenue NE. The tree landed on a car which was luckily unoccupied.
