Episode Narrative Thunderstorms erupted across northwest Alabama during the mid afternoon hours in an unstable environment with weak wind shear. Additional activity developed during the early evening hours in northeast Alabama which propagated south-southwest through north central Alabama. Some of the storms produced localized damaging winds and up to quarter sized hail. Local flash flooding also occurred in the community of Cherokee in Colbert County, where over 2 inches of rain fell within 30 to 45 minutes.
Event Narrative Over two inches of rain in a 30-45 minute period produced flash flooding at the intersection of Mount Hester Road, Highway 72 and Forrest Drive and at residences on 8th Street. Water over-spilled drainage culverts and flooded a few businesses.
