Slow-moving to nearly stationary storms developed Thursday afternoon producing heavy rain, strong winds, and large hail across the Tennessee Valley. A disturbance tracking through the region provided a forcing mechanism for these storms to develop in a very prime environment.

Within a three-hour time period, some locations across north Alabama had observed well over two inches of rain. Those that experienced the excessive rain saw flash flooding problems.

Some of the hardest-hit counties were Lawrence, Madison, Marshall, and Morgan.

One of the other threats storms posed for the area was 60 mph winds and large hail. News 19 viewer Patti from Harvest sent in this photo of pea-size hail associated with a storm.
