Episode Narrative An unusually strong cold front was approaching Georgia from the northwest as the subtropical ridge retrograded west into Texas. A disturbance in the increasingly stronger northwest flow aloft combined with the unstable, hot surface air mass to support the development of widespread thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening. Many of the thunderstorms produced damaging wind gusts downing numerous trees and power lines, especially across north Georgia.
Event Narrative The public observed penny-sized hail near Woodbury.
