Episode Narrative An area of low pressure developed along a strong cold front over northeastern Oklahoma and quickly moved northeast into the Great Lakes region. This intense low brought a potent cold front into northwest portions of Alabama producing wind damage during the evening hours.
Event Narrative The Decatur Daily reported a large tree uprooted, a few shingles were blown off a roof, and an outbuilding was destroyed on Old Highway 20. Also, a carport collapsed onto a car and a large patch of singles were blown from the roof.
