Episode Narrative An outbreak of severe thunderstorms was triggered by an unseasonably strong low pressure system over the Upper Mississippi Valley. The trailing cold front swept east across western Kentucky. Strong south winds ahead of this front brought adequate moisture and instability for a line of low-topped convection. Minimal lightning activity was reported.
Event Narrative A damage survey revealed a weak tornado caused a path of intermittent tree damage. Several large tree limbs were blown down, one whole tree was down, and tin was damaged on a couple of barns. Peak winds were estimated near 70 mph. The damage path ended near the junction of Highway 1453 and U.S. Highway 41.
