Episode Narrative A strong cold front tracked east from the Great Lakes south through the lower Mississippi Valley into a moist and unstable airmass that presented strong vertical wind shear. Several broken bands of thunderstorms developed, some of which were supercells producing long tracks of severe weather.
Event Narrative The initial touch down was along county road 501 about 13 miles south-southwest of Cullman, just east of I-65, about 2 miles east-southeast of the I-65 291 exit. The tornado initially knocked down a few trees in this area and had a path length of 75 yards and a 50 yard path width. Winds were at 70 mph, making it a F-0 tornado. The tornado lifted and then touched down briefly again along county road 504, about 11 miles south of Cullman. The F-0 tornado with winds topping out at 60 mph had a path length at 20 yards and a 20 yard width. The tornado again quickly lifted and touched down again about 4 miles northeast of the previous touch down, along the north end of county road 506, about 9 miles southeast of Cullman. The path length of this F-0 tornado with maximum wind speeds of 60 mph was again around 20 yards and path width at 20 yards.
