Episode Narrative A line of strong to severe thunderstorms produced scattered reports of damaging wind across western Kentucky. Most of the wind damage was east of Kentucky Lake. Strong surface pressure falls ahead of the line of storms, combined with very unstable air out ahead of the line, contributed to surging line segments and bow echoes. The line of storms originated along a cold front moving southeastward across Illinois and Missouri. Mid-level winds around 30 knots were sufficient to maintain organization of the convective system.
Event Narrative A tractor-trailer rig was overturned on Interstate 24 at mile marker 72.
