Episode Narrative A vigorous and unseasonably cold storm system traversed across Ontario and Quebec provinces on May 31st. This translated into a strong mid-level disturbance and low-level jet stream that supported a sharp, strong cold front.
This strong cold front moved across Vermont during the afternoon and resulted in an brief period of strong winds with gusts of 40 to 55 mph along with a 20 degree temperature plunge. These strong winds accounted for numerous reports of fallen trees, scattered power outages throughout Vermont, as well as some accompanied property damage due to fallen trees. There were also numerous reports of pea size hail throughout the afternoon with the arrival of colder air and heavier rain showers.
