Episode Narrative Thunderstorms developed in an unstable air mass ahead of an approaching cold front during the afternoon hours. Most of the activity occurred east of interstate 65. A miniature supercell produced a tornado near the Albertville Airport in Marshall County. Thunderstorm wind damage was also reported in Morgan and Cullman Counties. Southern and western portions of Marshall county also received two to three inches of rainfall in a short time leading to minor flash flooding.
Event Narrative A brief tornado touched down 4 miles southwest of Albertville, just southwest of the Albertville airport. Damage was sporadic and generally light, with a few trees uprooted and weaker softwood trees snapped. Light damage was also noted to a barn roof along White Oak road. Some damage also occurred to mature corn crops on the farm.
