Episode Narrative A cold front moved in from the west during the day on April 4. Ahead of the cold front both speed and directional shear were noted across central Kentucky with a 50-60 kt low-level jet. A QLCS with damaging winds and embedded tornadoes tracked across south-central Kentucky. This system produced 6 tornadoes across south central Kentucky as well as widespread wind damage and hail up to golf ball size.
Event Narrative An NWS storm survey confirmed an EF-1 tornado touched down 1.7 miles west-northwest of Sugar Grove near the intersection of Dimple and Belcher Roads. The tornado continued for four minutes along a 3.4 mile long path with winds to 100 mph, lifting 0.7 miles northeast of Needmore. The path was 50 yards wide. Near Needmore trees were snapped and a section of a residence's roof was removed. Elsewhere along the path minor roof damage occurred and a mobile home was moved from its foundation. The tornado lifted just east of the William H. Natcher/Green River Parkway.
