East surface winds brought cool air associated with high pressure over the Great Lakes region. In the upper levels, a 500 mb closed low over Missouri resulted in colder air aloft and steep lapse rates.
Event Narrative An off-duty meteorologist spotted a cold air funnel cloud while travelling on Interstate 24 west of Hopkinsville.
