Portions of the Tennessee Valley, especially those across northeast Alabama, experienced severe thunderstorms for 3 or 4 consecutive days between April 18 and 21, 2006. The pattern was unusually warm and unstable, with both the Huntsville and Muscle Shoals reporting sites breaking record highs several times in mid-April, and a nearby stationary front helped to fire off thunderstorms each day.

Having so many severe thunderstorms over such a short time period was unusual for the Tennessee Valley and a first since the NWS Huntsville office opened in 2003. Over the 4-day period, there were 71 reports of severe weather, most of which consisted of penny to golf ball size hail.

The following is a preliminary list of all of the reports received by the National Weather Service in Huntsville, broken up by day. (Note: "E" prior to the hail size indicates an estimated size, "M" indicates that it was measured.)
