Episode Narrative Thunderstorms gradually intensified along and ahead of a cold front from Arkansas into western Kentucky. The storms occurred in a moist and strongly sheared environment, resulting in a combination of line segments and supercells which evolved into a quasi-linear convective system. There were isolated tornadoes, along with a couple small swaths of damaging winds.
Event Narrative A brief touchdown occurred. The roof of a long metal farm building was lifted across a farm house. Two vehicles parked in a building were heavily damaged. Large tree limbs were down. Peak winds were estimated near 75 mph.
