Episode Narrative The upper shortwave that pushed through the Southern Appalachians on the 16th, inducing the lee side trough, remained a factor in thunderstorm development on the 17th. Additionally, a mid-level low off the Southeast Coast began moving onshore, bringing additional moisture to the area. Numerous thunderstorms developed during the day, and several of them became severe with mostly wind damage, but a few large hail reports as well.
Event Narrative The Meriwether County 911 Center reported that several trees were blown down in the Gay area.
