Episode Narrative A strong cold front slowly passed through the region during the late evening hours of the 27th into the morning of the 28th. A southerly flow ahead of the front caused deep moisture over the area. The deep moisture combined with a mid-level trough that was associated with the cold front to produce moderate amounts of instability. The cold front combined with the instability to trigger showers and thunderstorms. Gusty winds aloft were able to mix down to the surface in some of the stronger thunderstorms.
Event Narrative Trees were down along Route 28.
