Episode Narrative A broad area of low pressure aloft was moving slowly east through the mid-south. Deep tropical moisture remained across the southeast U.S. A weak cold front was approaching from the northwest. Afternoon heating resulted in the development of scattered thunderstorms across much of north and central Georgia. Many of the storms produced frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. Some of the more significant issues this day were lightning related, with one lightning-related injury in Cobb county.
Event Narrative An amateur radio operator reported that lightning struck a Georgia Pacific plant. The lightning strike resulted in a hole in the roof of the building. Several power outages were observed in the area from lightning strikes.
