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 Large tree limbs up to one foot in diameter were blown down. The street department removed several of them from streets. A rotating wall cloud was photographed just northwest of Crofton.
