Episode Narrative A strong upper level short wave move from west to east across the Central Plains states of the U.S. driving a cold front southeast into the Four State Region. Strong to severe thunderstorms formed in the unstable air mass ahead of the cold front. The front and at least 3 lines of thunderstorms moved through the Four State Region from west to east during the day. Strong low level shear in the atmosphere allowed some thunderstorms to rotate, producing tornadoes with damaging straight line winds producing downbursts.
Event Narrative The National Weather Service conducted a storm survey in Hempstead County Arkansas and found evidence of an EF1 tornado north of Hope. The tornado first touched down along CR 248 where 9 out of 10 chicken houses lost their roofs���several trees were snapped and an tractor trailer was flipped over. The tornado continued north east crossing CR 211 where several trees were snapped or uprooted and metal roofing was peeled from a barn. Maximum winds are estimated at 85-95 mph.
