Episode Narrative A strong subtropical ridge remain parked over Texas and the Southern Plains. This allowed a continued unstable northwest flow aloft to dominate the eastern United States. A strong disturbance was noted in the mid-Tennessee Valley, which moved southeast around the upper ridge into Georgia and the Caolinas from the 26th into the 27th. The atmosphere over Georgia remained abnormally hot as well as typically moist and humid for late June. These factors combined with the arrival of the aforementioned disturbance during maximum afternoon heating promoted the development of widespread thunderstorms. As was typical for many of the thunderstorms this June, widespread damaging wind in the form of thunderstorm gust fronts and outflow boundaries accompanied many of the thunderstorms.
Event Narrative The Meriwether County 911 Center reported that up to four trees were down just south of Gay in the far northeast part of the county.
