Episode Narrative The combination of a strong upper level disturbance, rich gulf moisture, and good instability helped to develop a strong squall line that moved north out of southeast Louisiana causing scattered hail and thunderstorm wind damage across portions of central Mississippi. The thunderstorm wind damage was mainly in the form of blown down power lines and trees as well as some spotty damage to structures. Hail sizes ranged from a quarter to golf ball size.

Another squall line impacted the region on the 3rd causing additional thunderstorm wind damage to portions of central Mississippi. Lightning also stuck a house in Jones County starting a fire.
Event Narrative Multiple trees were down around Hattiesburg, including one along I-59 between mile markers 50 and 56.
