Episode Narrative An intense negatively-titled upper low moved rapidly from central/south TX during the early morning hours of the 5th into Georgia by the evening hours of the 5th. Dewpoints rose into the 60s ahead of this system and combined with a strong low-level jet and deep layer shear to result in a broken band of strong to severe thunderstorms during the day. The severe activity began early in the day and persisted well into the afternoon. Several counties experienced thunderstorm wind damage and two tornadoes were confirmed by National Weather Service damage surverys, both in Coweta county, about 30 miles southwest of Atlanta.
Event Narrative The Meriwether County Emergency Management Director reported that several trees were down across the northern part of the county, mainly in the Luthersville area. One large power line was also down on Bates Road.
