Episode Narrative Strong low pressure over the Midwest remained cutoff from jet stream on the 16th. The warm front associated with this system passed through during the morning. Warm and moist southerly winds behind the front provided moderate amounts of instability. The instability combined with forcing from the low for showers and thunderstorms to develop.

There was enough instability along with strong winds aloft for some thunderstorms to become severe.
Event Narrative Hail up to the size of quarters was reported near Franklin.
