Episode Narrative A strong cold front that had moved into Middle Tennessee on May 1st moved north as a warm front during the afternoon hours to near the Tennessee/Kentucky Border on May 2nd. It then eventually moved south as a cold front on May 3rd in association with a strong low pressure system that had developed across central Arkansas on May 2nd and moved south into Central Louisiana on May 3rd. This weather pattern resulted in an EF1 tornado, large hail, and flash flooding across several counties.
Event Narrative Over five inches fell in most part of DeKalb County, causing swollen creek banks, water-covered roadways, and localized flash flooding.
