Episode Narrative A pronounced mid-level shortwave trough and associated 70 to 80 knot mid-level jet progressed northeastward from the southern Plains across Arkansas and Missouri. An associated surface low developed northeastward from southwest Missouri toward northwest Illinois. A gradual increase in the warm sector southerly low level jet occurred as the surface low deepened. Increasing vertical wind shear in the moist and unstable warm sector resulted in organized severe storms. The storms were organized into bowing lines with embedded supercell structures.
Event Narrative A wind gust to 55 knots was measured by automated observing equipment at Fort Campbell. A seven-mile stretch of Kentucky Highway 117 was closed due to multiple trees and power lines across it.
