Episode Narrative Strong southerly winds developed ahead of a cold front and caused low level shear to increase across the area. This low level shear aided in the development of a couple of tornadoes.
Event Narrative A tornado entered the southwest part of Wayne County from Jones County just south of US Highway 84. The tornado moved northeast causing mostly tree damage and crossed Highway 84. The tornado then crossed Harry Pippen Drive where it pushed a large tree on to a house. The tornado continued northeast over private property where it strengthened to an F1. Here it caused considerable tree damage and damaged a barn near Pleasant Grove Altair Road. The tornado crossed the road and this is where most of the damage occurred. A mobile home that was tied down was flipped and demolished. A large shed was flattened. Other homes in this area lost shingles and trees. The tornado lifted near Pleasant Grove Altair Road and Jack Fleming Road intersection.
