Episode Narrative A cold front trailed south-southwestward from a surface low pressure center over west central Illinois through southeast Missouri. This cold front provided the low level lift for short lines of thunderstorms to develop during the late afternoon. Some breaks in the clouds allowed sunshine to destabilize the atmosphere, but mixed layer capes remained at or below 1000 j/kg due to modest lapse rates and low-level moisture. Surface dew points around 60 degrees pooled along the front. Wind profiles were unidirectional and generally parallel to the front. As a result, the storms were mainly organized into short linear structures with some bowing segments that produced damaging wind.
Event Narrative A mobile storm chase vehicle measured a wind gust of 60 mph on U.S. Highway 68 just west of Hopkinsville. Power lines were blown down on the north side of Hopkinsville, about a mile north of the Pennyrile Parkway interchange with the bypass.
