Episode Narrative A cold front dipping into the Tennessee Valley helped spark strong to severe thunderstorms for several days, with large hail, damaging winds, and several tornadoes.
Event Narrative A brief tornado touchdown was reported by two law enforcement officers in a wooded area near the intersection of AL-18 and AL-107, just northwest of the city of Fayette. A subsequent survey of the area by county officials revealed very little damage.
