Episode Narrative A surface low pressure center moved northeast from eastern Arkansas, passing across northwest Tennessee and into western Kentucky. A closed 500 mb low was centered over the Mid-Mississippi Valley. Along and east of the surface low pressure center track, scattered strong to severe thunderstorms were embedded within a large area of rain. The storms were aided by convergence in the exit region of an intense south-southwesterly low-level jet of around 50 knots. Upper-level divergence within the right entrance region of a jet streak over northern Indiana further enhanced the storms. A couple of isolated tornadoes and microbursts accompanied the storms.
Event Narrative Two barns were damaged. One of the barns was nearly levelled. A pole barn lost one side and some roofing. Several trees were snapped or blown down, and several tree tops were snapped. Peak winds were estimated near 90 mph.
