Episode Narrative A weak cold front moved through Alabama on Sunday, May 13. Shear profiles ahead of and along the front were supportive of supercells. Given the enhanced low level storm relative helicity, numerous, weak mesocyclones and rotating wall clouds developed. One storm resulted in a brief tornado touchdown.
Event Narrative An EF0 tornado with winds of 50-60 MPH touched down just west of County Road 217 southwest of Roxana, causing damage to several trees. The tornado tracked northeastward and crossed County Road 66, where it continued to cause minor tree damage. The tornado dissipated just east of County Road 66.
