Episode Narrative A decaying frontal boundary produced widespread showers and strong to severe thunderstorms across northern Alabama. These storms produced damaging winds and some large hail, primarily along and west of a Madison to Morgan county line. Surface dewpoints in the upper 60s to lower 70s allowed these slow moving storms to produce heavy rainfall causing flash flooding in the Huntsville metro area.
Event Narrative A tree was blown down just north of John Blackwell Drive on Highway 243.
