April 5-6 Severe Weather Outbreak

April 5th: A moist and unstable airmass brought widespread severe thunderstorms to central Georgia with damaging winds and tornadoes commonplace. Fifteen tornadoes occurred during the afternoon and evening hours of April 5th across central Georgia. While most tornadoes were EF-0 to EF-1 intensity, the strongest were an EF-2 tornado in Dooly County and an EF-3 tornado in Houston County. Fortunately, no serious injuries or deaths occurred. 

An Enhanced Risk (Level 3) was in place for much of the area south of Interstate 20. Storms strengthened amid increasing instability through the afternoon with tornadoes and wind damage common across Middle Georgia.

 

April 6th: Out ahead of an approaching cold front, warm humid air caused widespread destabilization again during the afternoon of April 6th. Scattered reports of large hail and damaging wind gusts occurred through the afternoon and evening. Additionally, six more tornadoes of EF-0 and EF-1 intensity occurred in central Georgia. A cold front on the night of April 6th finally put an end to the severe weather threat.

An Enhanced Risk was again issued for most of the area on April 6th. Hail and damaging wind reports were scattered across the area with the concentration of additional tornadoes again across Middle Georgia.
