An intense storm system pivoting northeastward through the lower Mississippi Valley on the evening of April 12th sparked a severe weather outbreak throughout the southeastern states on April 12th and 13th. As this storm system lifted through the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys on April 13th, an associated frontal boundary moved slowly through our region, resulting in widespread heavy rainfall and several rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms on April 14th and 15th.
