Episode Narrative A cold front associated with an upper level short wave approached central Alabama on Saturday, January 21. As the cold front progressed eastward, a line of thunderstorms developed ahead of it, in an environment with mainly unidirectional wind shear. As the cold front entered central Alabama, the airmass was becoming increasingly unstable due to daytime heating and storms began to intensify. Eventually, a bow echo formed along the line and moved across Randolph County, producing a swath of wind damage at two locations. In addition, isolated thunderstorms well in advance of the cold front developed, producing an isolated hail event in Macon County.
Event Narrative Hail slightly larger than dime sized was reported on Interstate 85 at mile marker 30.
