Episode Narrative A surface low pressure center moved eastward from central Illinois in the morning to Ohio during the afternoon. A trailing cold front that bore characteristics of a dry line moved east-southeast across the Ohio Valley during the late afternoon. Along and east of the front, a few bands of thunderstorms intensified during the afternoon. A few of these storms produced marginally severe hail and damaging winds. Winds behind the front were strong and gusty, with numerous gusts from 40 to 49 mph in northwest Kentucky. A wind gust to 48 mph was measured at the Kentucky mesonet site in Union County.
Event Narrative Two uprooted trees were down across one lane of Highway 107 at the 22-mile marker. Both trees were about eight inches in diameter.
