June 25, 2007

A strong shortwave and a very unstable, moist air mass combined to allow for an active weather day across the area with damaging downburst winds, large hail and a number of lightning strikes. In Fannin County, golf ball-sized hail in the southeast part of the county was large enough to crack windshields near Wilscot Mountain. In Forsyth County, construction workers took shelter from a storm in a house that was under construction. Unfortunately, one of these workers was killed when struck by lightning.
