A warm front lifted northward along the KY/TN border New Years Eve into the morning hours on New Years Day. South of the warm front an unstable environment was in place before a cold front swept through the region from the northwest. This caused thunderstorms to develop across our southern counties in west Kentucky overnight and into the morning hours. A couple of tornadoes occurred in our far southeast counties including an EF-2 that struck the downtown area of Hopkinsville, KY shortly after 9 AM.
