Episode Narrative An intense fast moving squall line tracked east at 50 to 60 mph across north Alabama. Ahead of the line, southerly winds accelerated to 30 to 40 mph with a few gusts around 60 mph. The winds knocked some trees and power lines down.

The QLCS produced several reports of wind damage mainly to trees and powerlines, causing sporadic power outages. A poorly fastened, but large chicken barn was destroyed near Battleground in northwest Cullman County.
Event Narrative A flag pole was bent almost to the ground by winds and a large pine tree was blown down onto power lines in the Cherokee community.
